art crush : The Wheatfield

These beautiful sea inspired art prints from The Wheatfield. Oh, and that stunning ampersand because it visually connects the words of these two prints so perfectly!

Thank you so much to everyone for your get well wishes yesterday, my wee man seems to be back to his old self today, phew! That is to say, on finishing his breakfast this morning he gave us the usual questioning look. His eyes flicking between us, his cupboard of treats and his empty bowl, as if inquiring as to why we weren't emptying the contents of said cupboard into said empty bowl to fillup the yet unsaid empty (in his mind) belly! Yep, definitely back to normal!

a very Scottish, summery Sunday afternoon at the beach

My poor wee man isn't feeling well today. After throwing up all over my bedroom carpet yesterday afternoon (entirely missing the wood floors in the rest of our house, where it would have been so much easier to clean up!) he has been feeling very, very sorry for himself!

We were a wee bit worried last night as he refused any food or water, something he never does, ever! But thankfully this morning he seems to be feeling a tiny bit better and has managed to eat and drink a few mouthfuls. We think he must have snaffled some wee tidbit while out on his walk yesterday and it has thoroughly disagreed with him! He's terrible for hunting out anything edible where ever he goes. There have been so many 'incidents' which have included a french stick, a whole roast chicken, swallowing a large sausage roll in one gulp and lots of other such 'stories' that make you despair and giggle all at once! But one time he gave us a real fright, he had a very lucky escape from serious injury after I had to retrieve a fish hook and length of line from his throat!!!

Gah, you wouldn't think it to look at his cute face but sometimes he can be a real idiot, but a wee idiot that I wouldn't part with and one that loves being at the beach just as much as I do!

colour your monday happy...

Happy, happy Monday my lovelies... !
It is still 'summery grey' in Edinburgh this morning and I'm just a teensy bit jealous of the mini heatwave the south has had this weekend... I hope all you southerners made the most of it!? Oh, and the pictures of Glastonbury (here, here and here!) looked amazing too! I missed the butterflies but will catch up with that later today... :)

Anyhoo, today's wee selection of images from 'all colours in' are amongst some of my absolute faves at the moment... Of course you know how much I love this kind of styling, snippets of pretty patterns and delicious colours set against soft creamy white backdrops... always a winner in my mind!

Wishing you all the most fabulous day whatever you are up to... :)

happy Friday!

Hello my lovelies and happy Friday to all my friends! It has been a strange week this week with all it's ups and downs, a bit of a roller coaster shall we say! But in this wee corner of blogland I much prefer to focus on the ups and share in all the things that truly make me happy.

And today the thing that is truly making me happy is the hint of summer in the air, yay! It is only a hint mind you and I know it's not going to last long, but the clouds have parted slightly to let the sun shine though and I am appreciating every minute of it...

Hello my lovelies! I'm feeling a wee bit off today. Not ill. Just a wee bit heavy under all this miserable weather! If you have read this blog for any length of time you might have noticed that my mood always goes with the weather and I'm definitely a sunshine kinda girl. So the lack of summer in these parts is playing heavy on me at the moment. Sometimes I can shake off these iffy feelings with distractions of the crafty kind, sometimes I can't.
This morning my wee spirit was lifted on seeing Miss Tif's (and her #4's!) very spiffy pom pom garland. On spying it's loveliness I felt a sudden urge to be in my wee studio for lots of quality crafting time. I've been lacking this feeling a wee bit recently so I must take it as a sign and follow my crafty instincts! So, I am going to take a few days for myself and my sanity and I shall pop back to chat with all you lovelies soon.

Wishing you all a sunshiny day,
Emma, x

The summer solstice is almost upon us but I can't help feeling that something isn't quite right... something is missing... I can't quite put my finger on it... any ideas... !?

Yeah, the lack of summer sunshine and blue skies combined with dreary rainy days and even hailstone showers can certainly bring out the sarcasm in a girl... ;)

Here's hoping it will improve sometime soon... !
