Really awesome stuff

Being a bit of a magpie, and a design geek from way back, there is a mental collection constantly growing in my brain of beautiful things that either I want to possess or somehow emulate.

I’m one of those people that buys piles of maagzines (when cash allows) and pulls out pages and pages to stow away for inspiration. I hate throwing them out, in fact when I went to London Mum couldn’t understand why I left a lovely stack of Frankies and Russh in the study, to be lovingly collected on my return.

Once a week i’m going to post something really awesome, to keep my creative juices flowing and to provide you with some eye candy. I’m currently on a real interior design binge, seeing as the boy and I finally ordered our new bed (which isn’t exactly what we wanted, but close enough for now), and so am on the hunt for ways to tart up our flat and make it a lovelier place to live in.

First up: Union furniture.

Oh. my. goodness. Want. That is all.

Images thanks to Union

Road trippin’

A few snaps of this weekend’s jaunt to Taranki to take a knit graffiti workshop at the Govett-Brewster. It was wonderful to get away, meet a few fabulous yarnies, and indulge in some beautiful views and great food.

For more photos of what we got up to, pop on over to the Outdoorknit blog.
