Surprise treasury

Well I just thought I'd have a look around the treasury (work-avoidance going on here!) and, what do you know: 333 lists! and within seconds up popped the opportunity for me to create a treasury of my own! Luckily, I have one already waiting in Etsy poster sketch!

If I've picked an item of yours – leave a comment!

Flower power!

Ever fancied flower arranging? Playing around with flowers never crossed my mind until I encountered Judith Blacklock's School of Flowers. I was fortunate enough to be treated to courses where I learnt the art of the hand tied bouquet, a table centre, a wreath and how to wire buttonholes.

Judith has the knack of making flower arranging look incredibly simple and imparts tips and tricks which makes the art accessible even for the newbie – like me!

Join a course and you get to take your wonderful creations home, to be admired by family and friends!

What's more, you can find free tutorials on Judith's website! The pic above is my attempt at this month's lesson using a selection of foliage available from my garden along with a few roses purchased from the flower seller in Sevenoaks market.

Find out more about Judith's courses here.

Fashion statement

I really love these typographic Ts by citizenone. Attention grabbing ampersand and "rain in Spain…" t-shirts are by far my favourites, and I'm really looking forward to seeing more from this store!
