I absolutely adore Ditte Isager's work, especially these quite surreal ones for Bloomingdale's!

I went to the Country Living Christmas show in London yesterday with my sister Lisa and friend Mekette. I had a lovely time with the girls, despite being a little disappointed by the show in general. The food however did not disappoint! I especially liked these edible trees!

We also had a chance to visit some great little stores, including 'The Make Lounge' which is a small craft shop selling supplies, patterns, books and a few handmade goods. They also hold contemporary craft workshops, running classes in things such as; bookbinding, designing and making Silver jewellery, cupcake decorating, Knitting, screen printing and 'Knockout Knickers'!
The list just goes on and on...
We also popped into 'After Noah' which had a vintage style toy shop on the ground floor and antique furniture down in the basement (which reminded me a lot of the market from the film 'Bedknobs and Broomsticks'). I just loved it!

Why not take a look For yourselves!

Buttons the Elephant!

I went into a thrift store a recently looking for a hardback book to start a new project. Instead I found an old 60's book full of cute and cuddly animal patterns.
My sister's children absolutely love animals,so I decided to make the elephant for my nephew's 3rd birthday. I did end up making a few changes and adding buttons, but I think it turned out well.
