me and Emiliana Torrini


Last Sunday my friends and I had our first Crafternoon. Homemade treats and sewing, lovely. I started small, and made some bow headbands. Next time I hope to make some bow bats, and perhaps a fascinator... we'll see. They do seem rather more technical than my bows.




On Monday my friend gave me this lovely magazine. Printed in 1924, it was a weekly for young ladies, and has fiction, illustration and beauty advice – and not too many similarities with today. I love the writing from this era. I also love the two colour print of black and red, and the name, Poppy. It's such a prefect present.




Today it was again kind of warm again, after the recent cold-and-rainy snap, and the wind has FINALLY backed off a little – honestly, when will it end?! It was really sunny too, and I managed to get outside for a bit. I love not needing a jacket!

Gorgeous pics as always! I especially love the bow bands in B&W, amazing (photoshopping?) I MUST learn!

Those headbands are so lovely, you're very clever!

I'm so jealous of that magazine your friend bought for you! I also love the writing from that era. You'll have to share some of the real gems with us.

One of my best buds - a consummate knitter - is starting a craft group, and I can SO relate to your intimidation! I'm gonna start small, maybe a simple necklace, and see how it goes.

Love that little belted cardi, lady. So feminine ...

Very 1924 in your headbands - that magazine looked like it was in fantastic condition for it's age.

Poppy's Paper! How cute!
The headbands are quite technical enough for me, I so admire anyone who is good at making things

Love you in a mini! You look really cute.
Your brooch is beautiful too and I adore the headbands...I get so jealous when I read about all of you creative types out there making things, I lack the talent for it :)
