studio details : busy, busy! | Emma Lamb

So after my two bright and cheery posts this week I have been spurred on to get 'busy, busy' with a new project I've been pondering over for a while...

etsy favourites : cute and colourful

6 comments
Good morning, good morning! Today I'm still craving lots of bright and pretty colour, so I thought I would share this adorable wee collection of Etsy lovelies with you. You can see them all up close and personal in my newest treasury collection - 'cute and colourful playroom...'

Etsy favourites : cute and colourful | Emma Lamb

There are lots of wee ones, new babies and growing bumps around blogland at the moment, so I thought it would be a great idea to peruse my Etsy faves for adorable finds. Who knew there would be so many!? Enough in fact to kit out the sweetest playroom you could imagine! Actually nevermind the kids, I would so love that wee room for myself!

Wishing you all a wonderful Tuesday!

Yay, I'm so pleased to be back in blog land this morning! I do hope you're all doing fabulously and had a great week last week!?
Mine was filled with some very lovely things with visitors visiting and some not so lovely things such as cracked water pipes and broken computers! But this morning all of those not so lovely things are a distant memory as I tuck into yet another 'Peppermint Cream' and tiptoe my way through all the wonderful submissions to 'all colours in'... :)
Today I'm especially enjoying all these fab vintage florals with their bright and bold colours, the perfect counter balance to this drab and dreary autumn day!
Oh' and if you're absolutely loving Folly and Glee's vintage bark cloth lampshades, as I am, then you really must check out their online shops here and here... go, now!

Wishing you all the most fabulous Monday!

good morning my lovelies, i do hope you all had wonderful weekends filled with lots of chocolaty goodness!?
i discovered some very yummy chocolaty goodness indeed... a wee espresso bar called 'Patisserie Madeleine' in the heart of Stockbridge (one of my most favourite parts of Edinburgh!) that makes the most delicious chocolate macaroons... so, so yummy! next time i indulge myself with this most delicious of chocolaty treats i shall do my very best to take a few pretty pics beforehand and invite you all to share in a lovely cup of tea and some chocolaty goodness... :)
now then, i think it's time to move on from all things chocolaty now as i think i've written chocolate and chocolaty quite enough times this morning... ;)

so in Edinburgh this morning it is beautifully bright and sunny, absolutely perfect for what is officially the last day of summer in the UK... !
to celebrate i have chosen an invigorating selection of bright and beautiful, summery images from'all colours in', with lots of energetic pinks, red and orange... the perfect way to kick start our Monday mornings, get rid of any autumn blues we might be feeling and officially say goodbye to the summer... :)

I'm in the mood for chocolate, and lots of it! Okay... so yes, I'm always in the mood for chocolate... but today I'm lusting after some delicious chocolate cake in particular. That deep, rich cocoa flavour. Sticky and sweet with the bitter hint of very dark chocolate. Heavy, satisfying and comforting. The kind of chocolate cake that, after just one piece makes you want so much more, but you know if you go for second helpings you'll never finish it! That's the kind of chocolate mood I'm in today... :)

We have visitors arriving this weekend, I wonder if they would enjoy sharing in some chocolatey goodness? Thing is, do I really want them to... !?

Wishing you all a fab Friday and a wonderful weekend whether you have chocolatey plans of your own, or not... :)

etsy favourites : I so want to wear it all!

5 comments
Good afternoon my friends, I do hope your all having a fabulous day thus far?! I have been crocheting like a woman possessed, in fact that's kinda been my whole week. It doesn't feel like I've spent much time online at all other than bringing you a few pretty posts, however this afternoon my hands felt like they needed a wee break and my eyes a wee treat. So what better way than to browse the ever inspiring isles of Etsy, spending a blissful half hour discovering lots of lovely finds that really should be in my wardrobe this winter?!

Oh, and since I'm now claiming official 'bagsy' for each and every one of these, no one else is allowed to buy them, okay!?

Oh yes, and if you're wondering what I've been crocheting like a woman possessed... Ah well, I'll try and have a few pics ready for you next week!

Wishing you lots of wonderful things for the rest of your Thursday afternoon!

jewellery box : late summer collection by tinctory

11 comments
I'm guessing that a lot of you lovelies will have already discovered and fallen in love with the amazing Tinctory jewellery line? Made by the fair hands of the extremely talented Eva. At the moment I am absolutely in love with her most recent collection of smocked fabric necklaces that were inspired by the theme 'late summer'...

All images: Tinctory

Again I am inspired by Eva's incredible attention to detail, not only does she hand stitch each piece with exquisite detail but she also hand dyes the fabric pieces herself. Since closing her Etsy shop to open an independent store she has been exploring natural dye processes, gathering and growing the ingredients herself and experimenting to find the most beautiful colour combinations. You can follow the journey and evolution of her designs over on her equally inspiring blog.

I am yet to own one of Eva's gorgeous pieces but maybe one day soon! As there are only fourteen weeks left til Christmas you know!?

With that thought I shall leave you and wish you all a fabulous day,

good afternoon my lovelies! i'm running a wee bit late with my post today due to a 'flaky' internet connection this morning. not sure what was causing it but everything seems okay just now, fingers crossed it will stay that way... !
anyway, i do hope you all had a lovely weekend and are enjoying this wee collection of pretty pics from 'all colours in'? as i said, these are a few of my personal favourites today and i love how they all, in their own way, seem to illustrate a feeling of 'faded beauty'. whether it's a beautiful vintage find, faded and sun bleached pastels or the colourful cycle of nature ~ all so inspirational!

wishing you all 'flaky internet connection' free Monday... ;)
