I've moved!

After thinking about it for a long time, I've set up a self hosted wordpress site! It still isn't perfect, but I'm really excited about it and think it's going to be great to have my blog, portfolio and shop all in one place. I have renewed enthusiasm for blogging, and I really hope you'll follow me to my new home! You can now find me at 
I hope to see you there for new adventures!

A Walk In The Woods With The Waterfall

In mid-summer my love and I took a walk in one of my favourite places-the woods with the waterfall.

Patchwork Perfection!

Back in May I caught the end of Midsomer Quilting's Patchwork and Quilting Exhibition at Radstock Museum (which is a bit of an unexpected gem and well worth a visit!). I was blown away by the incredible skill of the various quilters, and spent a long time looking around and taking photographs. So many, in fact, that I can only show a few of my favourites in this post-I took over a hundred pictures!
I will let the photos speak for themselves, but this really was a stunningly beautiful exhibition, which I am so glad I saw.

Fields, Flowers, Pine Forests and Ferns

Back in early summer I went for a walk on a now familiar and well trodden path. Through the field with the inquisitive sheep...

Outfit Of The Day: Stained Glass and Jewel Colours

The last week has brought a definite chill in the air and Autumn seems to be rapidly approaching. These in between days where the weather can't make up its mind can be difficult to dress for, but I'm enjoying the opportunity to wear my big cardigans and these new and very warm boots.

I thought the bronze colour of this tiny pocket watch necklace looked pretty with the rusty orange of my silk blouse. The wire wrapped ring is on long term loan from my boyfriend and was made by him. I really need to start wearing more of my own creations-that proverb about the cobbler's wife  rings very true!-so I put on a ribbon rose headband I made a few months ago.

Simple Veggie Pasta Sauce

Why hello there.

As I needed to take cooking photos for my Ozeri Earth Pan Review, I figured I might as well photograph the WHOLE ENTIRE PROCESS and put together a little recipe post. To be honest, my cooking is usually pretty much throw-things-in-a-pan-hope-it-works, but I do seem to have mastered a basic pasta sauce, hurrah! Making your own pasta sauce is a really easy way of getting a few more fruits and vegetables into your diet, which is something I'm really trying to work on at the moment.
