I’m feeling a bit ‘laissez faire’ about my blog at the moment but it will pass I’m sure. It doesn’t help that, now that the clocks have gone back, the light for photography is a bit pants for most of the day so I haven’t been able to take photos of certain things that I would usually have blogged about.

I’ve got a thing at the moment about using linens, fabrics and trims which I have come across whilst stocking up my vintage shop. I like making new things out of old things – or ‘upcycling’ as I think the proper term is – and some of these old linens deserve another life instead of being put in the bin.
