Sometimes it nice to get off the path and see what else is round the corner. Cycling last weekend along a path I decided to go off the track and I found a little patch of wild flowers. Currently I'm back in the sadle as I have my sisters bike on loan, she's off on her travels and it's so nice to be out cycling again. The thirty year old bike I bought from gumtree with one working gear wasn't quite cutting it but I will definately buy a bike soon.

The joys of being able to blog on the go, after a lovely cycle, as I write this I'm sitting outside a cafe in the sun having morning coffee. Simply blogging is double the fun now, I used to spend hours putting photos onto our laptop, partly because of my dinosaur computer skills and the laptop being ready for the bin. Anyway I'm going off the subject! Just wanted to share some of the banners I've been making! All you fabric lovers out there will know what I mean when I say "right I'm not buying any more fabric" only to walk into a vintage shop or charity shop and fall in love with a print! That's me! So for as long as I'm addicted to buying fabric I will keep on sewing!

In an effort to get outside more progress on the dollshouse has slowed, although summer in Northern Ireland means rain so I'll probably be back making before you know it! After the living room I started on the hallway. Here's how it's looking, oh and I got a cat! Tuxedo as named by an Instagram friend, Tux for short.
Hope you're all having a good week

On the blog today the spare bedroom getting a makeover with a lick of paint. This room has always been white, white is clean, white is safe, white is easy to clean, who doesn't have a tin of white paint lying around to touch up marks? White is great, I love white, but I had an urge and you know what happens when you get the urge, well for me until the job is done I can't stop thinking about it! The perfect shade was Miami Mint and I love how the room turned out, it might just be a little bit harder to get it back to white the next time I have one of my urges!
Hope you're all having a good week x

This weekend I've been enjoying hanging out with the cats, making new clothes for Pippa, day tripping with the big lad, coastal walks, picking beachy wildflowers, lunch in my favourite harbour town cafe, charity shop mooches, picking strawberries from the garden, watching Game of Thrones and the best thing about this weekend, there's a whole week off work ahead!
Hope you're all having a lovely weekend!

Since my last blog update I've been working a little more on my dollshouse project. For the living room I've made a trolley style mini bar complete with kitsch flamingo and swizzle sticks.

My recent dolls house purchase has opened up a whole new world interior design love for me, this time in miniature. I'm trying to make as much a possible for the house it's all very Blue Peter style make it out of cardboard and matchboxes but it's a lot of fun! I've been posting a ton of pictures of my house project on Instagram using the hashtags #dollshouse and #miniaturestylist and I've found so many other dollshouse enthusiasts to follow. So far I've been working on the downstairs, here's some of the living room progress!
