Coffee cup full of joy!

Whimsical Wishes


Hello
Once again where has the week gone! The days seem to disappear! But I have decided to try and take it easy this week.  Having a full time job, then trying to do art when I come home makes life a little full! A bit like this coffee cup really.  I never seem to find time for myself.  So this week I decided to take a bit of time out and concentrate on me! So after work I met with friends, had some good food, got a lovely long nights sleep and now I think I will go and laze in a lovely big bubble bath!  But me being me I couldn't resist a quick nosey on Etsy and look at the beautiful shop I found!  Specialising in wedding decorations and bouquets, this shop is exactly what it says on the tin! Full of whimsical wishes! and it couldn't be full of more beautiful things!
Enjoy
Love Tania

I love winter

Hello
I had to quickly blog about this Heinz advert! 
I love it! 
It is so true!
This time last year when I was in my little apartment 
living on my own, 
the amount of nights I walked 
through my door dripping wet got too many to count! 
I would stumble in the front door,
scurry under my duvet for my big fleecy penguin pajamas, 
jump on the sofa under a big blanket 
and squeeze a big bowl of soup for my tea!
Cold times te he! 
I really must get to sleep now!
Night night all
Love Tania

A little vintage find

 Hello
I wanted to blog about this lovely shop!
It stocks 40s and 50s vintage inspired dresses, skirts, jackets and soooooo much more!!!
I love the Gretal Coat thats come back in stock!
(image above!)
It would def warm up those cold winter nights!
Here I am wearing one of their jackets!
Mum and I popped to London a few months ago where I came across this little boutique! 
I dragged mum in 
like a little girl running to a sweet shop!
I gasped as I saw this jacket and couldn't put it down!
After nearly an hour,
 we stepped outside with our 
bags a little heavier and 
our purses a little lighter!
 We were very giddy and very happy he he!
Love Love Love it!!
Go check out the site for so many lovely pieces!
Love Tania

Girl on the moon

  Hello
Heres my little Valentines card 
Last year one night I came home from work and was really in the mood to draw!
A rarity these days sadly!
So I sat on my bed, 
put on some music 
and within an hour 
this little lady came about!
I hope you like her as much as I do, 
as you can see she has a lot of love to give! 
 ♥ Lots of lovely love ♥

A little birdy

Hello
I wanted to share with you this lovely brooch from the Etsy shop kirstinstride.

Kirstin's designs are all hand drawn on to 
shrink plastic! 
This is another amazing craft and I do have 
sheets ready to turn into makes but as I am such a 
perfectionist I am too 
scared to use them and waiting for the right 
design!  
I know I have so many drawings etc that I would be perfect 
for them though! 
Maybe I should set workshop days for myself he he! 
First day screen printing, 
second day shrink plastic jewellery making! 
Take a look at the other items in the shop! 
There are some adorable 
collar clips 
and with birds being the theme at the minute 
it reminds us that through this cold winter, spring is 
round the corner!
Love Tania xXx
Goodbye
