Our early Christmas present

Our baby daughter, Winter Wren Wilkinson arrived 10 days early on 9 December weighing 6pm 2oz.  She is obviously inpatient, like her mother!  We are super-happy and proud to have created such a lovely little bundle of joy.  It is likely that there will be less post on the blog for a while whilst we get our heads around parenthood, lack of sleep etc, but I will be back probably with lots more baby-related design posts in the New Year!

Abigail Brown - Birds

I first featured Abigail Brown's work in the early day of my blog.  Since then she has further developed her style and created these fantastic feathered friends.  There are many more to see on her website.

Before and Afters

If you haven't discovered Designsponge yet, get your asses over there quick smart! I've long been an avid follower of their blog, but it struck me that some people may not have come across their blog, and I felt I ought to point you in their direction.  One of my favourite regular features are their Before & After posts.  

Here is one of my favourites.

I've never managed to brave having a tattoo done, Im too much of a wimp! But these beauties above from
Butterfat are pretty special and almost make me change my mind!

This one is pretty stunning too, not sure I could pull this off though!!

More Christmassy inspiration...

...for a crafty Christmas.  There are TONNES of ideas and inspiration for christmas decorations on the web, but here are just a few simple ones I like.  I have just made my alternative Christmas tree by taking twigs from the park and painting them white and decorating with decorations and delicate lights.  Its simple, looks lovely and festive and there will be no needles to hoover up after Christmas!

Its a wrap

Christmas is fast approaching and each year, I try to find new ways of wrapping my gifts to add an extra 'christmassy-ness' (Is that even a word?)  to them.  Here is some inspiration if you are looking to give your gifts some extra pizazz!

Crackin' christmas gift ideas

This is a great book by Meredith Gaston which I first saw on Decor8 earlier this year.  It's perfect to snuggle up with in front of the fire with a hot chocolate.

Beautiful Hand embroidered birds from Catherine Frere-Smith, available on Etsy

LOVE these little bandits by Adatine

This guy is called Winston and he is pretty surly-looking!  He comes with a side-kick, Squeak.  Super-cute and available from Hilary Cosworth on Etsy

I love pretty much everything Sweet Bestiary makes and this beautiful bunny brooch is no exception.

I'll be back ... the words of Arnie!  Huge apologies for the lack of posts over the last few months.  Things have been pretty hectic which meant I ended up taking a longer than hoped for break from the blog.  Im working on some new posts which I am going to schedule for over the next month or so as my baby is due in a couple of weeks, so I don't think there will be much time for blogging when our little one arrives.

Here are some pretty birdies to start with.
