Oh my goodness! How adorable are these?! Brother and sister duo from Dundee have handmade these beautiful bow ties from vintage and remnant fabrics. Each "Bell and Belle" bow tie is adjustable, reversible and self tying. I want one!

Head on over to their little boutique store Hello In There or their blog and check them out. Don't you think they would make lovely  Christmas presents (is it crazy that I'm thinking about Christmas already?!)
Thanks Bev for letting me know about your charming bow ties :)

FEIJOA WINE: part three

Well it's been a while since my last feijoa wine update. But at last... We have taken the wine out of the demijohn and bottled it! We were actually a bit naughty and probably left in there longer than usual. 
But it was looking lovely and clear when we syphoned it into the bottles.

And of course we had a cheeky taste before the wine made it to the bottles! Yum! We used an assortment of different bottles we had collected over the last few months. I love that they are all mismatched shapes, sizes and colours. Now for the fun part... Making labels!

INSPIRED BY: mister rob ryan

I think we can all agree that Rob Ryan is AMAZING. His paper cut are so beautiful and whimsical... I want them all! But for now I'm going to have to settle for his I Walked And I Thought tape that I just ordered from his etsy store. Eekkk I can't wait for it to arrive!

These are some of my favourite works of his... Yup, there's a lot. Next on my ever increasing wishlist is one of is books. I'm thinking I'll get This Is For You.
