Much love Monday (Miniatures)


Today I love: Miniatures including this tiny teacup and saucer and little birdcage in the background.

I'm fascinated by them and I've loved teeny tiny things for years. I used to make teeny tiny books, cards and notebooks when I was younger. I will have to see if I can find some examples to show next time.

Other things I love include...

* Bows! I'm obsessed with them, as headbands, brooches, hair clips.
* Hot Milo and eating Arnotts family assorted biscuits
* Babies! I get so clucky sometimes but I know it's not the right time at the moment :(
* Watching my brother and his new wife's videos they are making whilst on their European Honeymoon
* Dreams of travelling
* Watching the Harry Potter movies while making mini note cards
* Etsy window shopping (lots of ideas for making things)
* Pretty braids

I have to say thank you for the feedback with my Etsy ideas. I'm on a bit of a creative streak (I think) and I just want to keep on making things. So I've been getting some supplies off Etsy and anxiously awaiting them so I can see if the ideas work.

I have ideas for tiny earrings, fabric magnets (maybe some brooches), mini notecards and little hairpins. And I'm going to mix and match things.


I would love to try a hairstyle like this. Or just add some braids to my everyday hairstyle. I think braids and plaits are just beautiful.

Anyway, I don't have much to day today. I hope you all have a lovely week! And more Much Love Monday here.

I'm thinking of having braids similar to that for my wedding. I love them. I'm growing my fringe outat the moment (decided I didn't want to look back on my wedding photos and think, 'Oh, that's when I was going through my fringe phase' haha), so I braid them across my hair following my hair line. It's a cool hair style!

Hope you had a great long weekend!

This week i am loving lots of scotch fingers dipped in milk... gotta love arnotts!

Braids are just magical. they dress up any look... esp when you get all technical and weave in a ribbon :)

Somehow I missed your post yesterday but I've gone back now to look at your etsy creations and they are simply lovely! What a talented girl you are...

The miniature teacup and saucer are great. I'd love to have them on my kitchen windowsill.

Much love to you this Monday, Gracie! I'm going to go work on my post right now...

After reading your post, I went and watched melly & alvins paris movie... Oh oh ooooh some serious wanderlust there (great word thankyou Bella). And the braids are so sweet; maybe next post you'll show us how you wore them? And awwww babies... I think Someone should have one so we can play with it... Although I think you and I are the only possible mummy contenders...after Paris!

Love you Bella x
