I've wanted a vintage bicycle for ages and I finally got this one (or have been loaned one long-term!) from my boyfriend's Dad. He found it in his garage and gave it a spruce up and its looks as good as new, even though it is 36 years old, now I just need a bell and a basket. Word of warning to others wishing to get your hands on a vintage cycle - they are pretty hard work to pedal even on a slight hill as the gears of yesteryear don't seem to be geared (geddit!) up for biking up and down hills - which is pretty much all of Sheffield, then, but its all good exercise!

Sorry! I havent deserted you completely, just been mega busy - will be back to normal soon! For now, here are a few images I liked this week. For links to the sites they come from click here. Will post pics of my new vintage bike, my new veg plot (providing said veg hasn't died before I get to take pics of it!) and other things I've been up to soon.

I found XT Atelier's work on flickr a while back, I just love the fresh and free feeling of her work and the inspiration that her studio, furniture, art and blog all give me. One day, maybe i will be living in a warm mediterranean country with my own atelier. Until then, I will keep looking at these lovely images

I ran a small shoe customisation workshop last Sunday at Jam Jar Beads and met some lovely ladies who made some beautiful adornments for their tooties. I love running workshops and seeing the lovely things each person makes which are all so unique. One of the ladies who attended the event has created this lovely word cloud based on the day. Its such a lovely idea and something I had never heard of before (word clouds can be created at Wordle), but I love it, here is the link for you to look at others or even create your own.

Always one to help a brother out, I wanted to put a shout out to my li'l brother (and his fiance) who have got their website up and running for their company Focofilms, specialising in documentary film work. Their film called Eloise recently won the judge's award at Reedfilms and the Guardian chose this film to be shown at the Hay on Wye festival yesterday too.
