If you fancy making your own here are some brief instructions:
- Measure your head, mine was 56cm.
- Cut your ribbon, I cut 40cm, you could take away 15-18cm from your head measurement for yours, for kids perhaps 10cm.
- Cut a piece of elastic, mine was 12cm, you could take away 4-5cm from the remaining distance around your head, 3cm for kids.
- Stitch the elastic to the ribbon using a sewing machine, more stitches = stronger join.
- Select some felt/some other ribbon/some buttons and hand stitch this over the join to make it neat. My decoration sits behind my ears slightly so is hidden from the front but visible from the sides.
- There you have it, a completed headband!
Will share the rest of the buttons later! Kx

Have a few things to share but have not taken pictures yet, although I did get round to photographing this crazy tissue box cover I made for a friend, this is serious nerdcore, if you don't get the joke then don't worry! K xxx

I said I would share my yesterday thrifty finds with you all, first up I found some amazing patterns, one for a basic dress and one for.... wait for it.... cullottes!!!! I am tres excited but need to buy suitable fabric first! I also found an amazing teapot, thinking of using it just for hot chocolate, and also a really pretty red throw. I also grabbed some curtain header tape and an old blouse and finally got round to making my sewing room some new curtains (from some lovely fabric my Grandma gave me) as well as another elastic waist skirt :)
My glass jar candle holders should be popping up on oneprettything soon, keep an eye out! K xxx

The glasses were from Woolies (I miss you), 6 colours, all jewel like - I believe Whittards do some similar :) They certainly look fun when filled with equally jewel coloured Robinsons Juice!

Yesterday Eartha and I went on a shoe mission around London, first to Kate Kanzier in Leather Lane, then off to Covent Garden. We met up with both our lovely menfolk and eventually went to DimT for lunch on the southbank where we had pork balls, so tasty
Boots from New Look, all other shoes are Kate Kanzier, Knitted Dim Sum from The Toki Cafe. Hodge the cat can be found near fleet street, but you will have to hunt him down yourselves from there!

Lots of my lovely friends are moving soon (congrats guys!!! lots of housewarmings please!), I was intending to make a new home card but somehow these turned into new address cards, so I figured I would make a set or two! Links below, hope you like!
The tape strips are free from Pugly Pixel, grab some of your own here!

Have been having a lot of fun on ebay recently both buying and selling, here's a little summary of some of my favourite purchases from the last few weeks! I have been really bummed out this holiday as a recurring problem with my vision has returned but some lovely visits from my brother and seeing friends as well as my nice man being sweet, as well as my ebay fun, has made it much less frustrating! Am really loving my giant headphones and blue leather sack bag at the moment... more to share very soon
