I hope you're all having wonderful weekends!
Today, I thought I'd share a few of my current loves; because nothing beats the Sunday blues like a list of beautiful things :)
1. Illustrated dinner plates
Beautiful, witty, tableware involving sharks - what's not to love?! The only problem with these plates is I'd have constant indigestion due to eating my dinner as quickly as possible to look at the pretty pictures!
Since installing the "Pin It" button on my bookmarks bar, I've been pinning craft tutorials and pictures of kitchens like there's no tomorrow.
3. Double Caramel Magnums
Until today, I didn't know these existed. I can understand why no-one wanted to tell me before- as I have now made it my life's mission to eat them all. Hardly my fault- they are so damn delicious!
4. Car Boot Bargains
Today, Fran and I spent three very enjoyable hours hunting down bargains and eating Mr Whippy ice-creams at our local car boot sale. I was very successful at haggling and picked up a dress, three tops, two books, two metal aeroplanes (part of a current craft project) and a light-up globe for £4.75! Score!
5. Solving our record storage problem
Tom and I eventually settled on the storage solution for our (very much individual) record collections; vintage-style fruit crates. The globe in the photo is my £1 car boot bargain from this morning :)
6. Being an Independant Woman aka building flatpack furniture
I spent yesterday morning putting together a flat-packed vanity unit for our bathroom. I was tempted to ring Beyonce (or 'Bey' as I call her cos we're, like, totes besties) and tell her how much of a Strong, Independant Woman I was being; then realised I was putting the furniture together using tools I had stolen from Tom's toolbox, because I don't have any tools.... Oh well, one step at a time.
7. Photographing pretty things
Butterflies, buildings and boyfriends :)

8. Lusting after circus-themed goodies
9. Big, fancy glass jarsI have a romantic idea of my kitchen counter being covered with huge jars filled with homemade cookies. In reality, the jars would be full of cookie crumbs, and my belly would be full of cookies...
10. Devouring free e-zines
If you haven't discovered these two yet, I can't recommend them enough. They contain links to beautiful, well chosen pieces from the U.K and the U.S respectively, photographs of stunning interiors and gorgeous fashion shoots.
