Pinterest Picks #10

This week my Pinterest picks are all around the theme of winter warmers. It’s been chilly here in the UK and with a winter chill comes the desire to get cosy and warm inside. Here are some of my favourite ways to do this.

Firstly, food…what better way to warm up than with a bowl of something comforting (yes, comfort food should almost always come in bowl form).

red lentil coconut soup  - a house in the hills

Navy Bean Soup

Lentil and Sausage Soup for a Cold Winter's Night by AntoniaJames,  food52:  The beauty of this soup is that it manages to be soul-warming but not overly heavy. The broth is light, and aromatic with wine and marjoram, and you feel like you've won the lottery each time you come across a piece of garlicky sausage. #Soup #Lentil #Sausage


Next, what better way to enjoy this lovely food? Of course, wrapped up in something warm and cosy!

Who wouldn’t love to be sitting here right now?



Banish those winter blues with some bright colours like these!

According to Matt...: Granny Square Blanket.....The Sequel!


Pinterest Picks #8

I missed last week so I’m back with some of my favourite Pinterest Picks for this week. This weeks theme is all around bicycles. I love to ride my bike and I’ve really missed it this past week as the weather has been just to icy for me to get out and about. I’m also working on a design for pannier bags and I should be able to show you the final product in a week or so!
Anyway, on to this weeks picks

Festive Discounting!

So, for Take a Look Tuesday this week I decided to have a wee pre Christmas sale and for one week only, everything in my shop on Etsy will have 15% discount with code TALKT15. Don’t forget that as all of my items have free UK & Ireland postage this means there are some real bargains to be had!
I’ve also got some lovely items left over from the market at the weekend to add tonight.

Pinterest Pics #1

In an attempt to have some semi regular commentary I’ve decided to make Mondays my Pinterest Pics Day. I spend an obscene amount of time on this website and it seems only right that I encourage others to do the same.

Every Monday I will list some of my favourite things on Pinterest. Here are today’s selection;

First up is this great selection of Jim Lambie interiors. I love the colours he uses and the shapes he creates.

Next is this heart stopping picture of Felix Baumgartner about to leap out of his balloon pod yesterday. Like many I was glued to this jump. It was terrifying for me so I dread to think how his family felt watching it, never mind how he felt stepping off that platform. What an unbelievable view though.


Thirdly, is this beautiful image of a hand with The Beatles, ‘Hello, Goodbye’ lyrics. I love the song to begin with and I’m an absolute sucker for typography like this.

Now, I am terrible at keeping a diary- I manage it for a few weeks then forget about it. I wish with all my heart that I could create something like this and keep it up!

One week in my current journal.

This is just a beautiful picture

Lovely in every way

So there we have it…week 1 on my Pinterest Pics.
