Is it possible to post too many cat photo's?

When you're at home writing essays for your MA a cat is a good companion xxo

Conkers' first venture outside in the garden and chicken, bacon and veg-box veg soup

Conker has now had her second injection which means she can go outside, she's still too small to leave alone but we took her for a little adventure on Sunday morning and she loved it. Incredibly nosy, she was trying to look over the fence to see the neighbours she could hear talking, she also seemed to be a little scared too. Look how tiny she looks.
I made this soup using the vegetables from my last veg-box, I forgot to order one last week, oops, but one is coming this week xxo

The Steyning Tea Rooms and my photography

I'm incredibly excited as my photography has been used on the Steyning tearooms website. They saw the photo's on my blog post 'The Steyning Tearooms' and emailed me asking about using them. Obviously I gladly permitted use of my photos, I am happy to be associated with such a lovely place. You can see their website here and a link to my website is on their main page xxo

Memories and my work space

I took a photo this morning of my work space and Conker, then in a very amateur way edited it, a little, and then it ended up looking like this and reminded me of the opening for 'Winnie The Pooh' and certain episodes of 'Sesame Street' . See the two posts below to view the videos I mean. Very 70's xxo

Sesame Street - How Crayons Are Made

The Many Adventures of the Winnie the Pooh - Open (French)

Liverpool Anglican Cathedral

Went to Liverpool Cathedral yesterday, have you been?. If not, you need to, it's astounding, the architecture is timeless, it's contemporary but not uncomfortable in it's surroundings. I was in awe. We met a guy there who was drawing the stain glass windows and he had an excellent jumper with Charlie Chaplin on.
Saw these on our way in. Gutted!

Personalised Christmas Stocking

After giving Mia her christmas stocking and some reassuring encouragement and thanks from friends and family I have decided to offer you my services. I can make personalised christmas stockings with anything you like written on them. I will use vintage fabrics and applique the word/words on. I have a whole chest full of vintage fabrics waiting to be turned into something new. From old curtains and table cloths to vintage dresses and corduroy trousers, you just have to tell me the colour theme you would like me to stick to and the outcome will be a vintage up-cycled suprise. To order one have a look at my etsy shop here xxo
