These boots are constructed to be suitable for various perambulations…

How hot are these Ros Hommerson Black Women’s Spin Wide Calf Boots?! I know I know, they’ve got a heel so I probably can’t wear them with my pita of a back, BUT STIL!L They’re not TOO high and they’d look totally hot next year for Ali & Damien (aka Alien! :D <333)’s wedding under our awesomely voluminous dresses. I could make matching boned fabric spats to go on them too! OMG THE PRETTIES! *joyface*

I do totally need more boot variety in my wardrobe, the awesome pair that Deasilvae gave me for Christmas are holding their own against a shoe-torturing Nett, but I’d like to not torture them so much and be able to mix it up a bit.

Plus, Greg LOVES him some boot on the ladies ;) :D

SO MUCH SKIRT! <3

APPARENTLY, Greg is too much of a sweet as hell modern guy to buy me chauvinistic overtone gifts and so asked me to post yet another wishlist of goods. OMG SO HARD! *laughs* WHAT DO I WANT THAT’S NOT YARN, FABRIC OR KITCHENGOODS?! xD

The answer? Well OBVIOUSLY its clothes *laughs* I am so lacking in new/wearable dresses and tights that haven’t been rendered crotchless from being worn more than once in their lives >_<;; Then I remembered I had the Vivien of Holloway website open since January, so I could randomly click back to those tabs and fawn over the mountains of skirt and deliciously constructed boned bodices…

Not just in red, but turquoise too! And of course I’m dying to have a trucktonne of hugely huge petticoats (RED! WHITE! PIIIINK!!) to go with them and to go under other clothes I already have/plan to make. MmMMmmmmm..! Petticoats aren’t hard to make but they’re SO TIME CONSUMING! *laughs*

Unfortunately these aren’t exactly what Greg was asking for, I do believe he wanted me to list things that you could buy locally in a shop. DARN IT! *laughs more* But still, nothing can stop me from fawning over these a little longer. ^_^

In a beautiful pea green boat…

The owl and the pussy cat went to sea...

I’m pretty sure that Essie warned me that this set was going to be released soon, and warning is so totally the correct word here. The fabrics and patterns in Heather Ross’s Far Far Away II set conjure up SO MANY awesome project ideas I am full to bursting.

I somehow think, however, that Greg wont let me purchase a mess of smiley moons and wistful cats to make new quilt covers/pillow cases for our shared bed however… ^_^;; xD Though I DO really need to find some awesome fabric combinations that we both like (YES! My man does actually have an opinion on fabric *outs him*) to make us more. Our totally mismatched bedding is starting to urk me, even though the reason we went that way was because of lack of funds and that together it became ‘OURS.’ <3

Confession time? I used to HATE the Owl & the Pussycat when I was a kid. Used to drive me batty that the cat didn’t just eat the owl. DID IT HAVE NO SENSE OF PRESERVATION!? But now it just fills me with such a feeling of whimsical nostalgia that I adore any reference to it when I stumble upon it.

Old age hypocrisy, apparently I cherish it.

“they retired to their tea and scandal, according to their ancient custom” – william congreve

EEE! Ma friend Essie has created another gorgeous x-stich pattern for her etsy store. This time based on her adoration of pretty tea cups.

Though I have ZERO patience for cross-stich on this kind of scale myself (I can’t ever get the backs to look as neat as I’d like! xD Yes, that’s right, I don’t do it because I don’t like the part you CAN’T SEE xD) I’d SO LOVE this whole set in reality. EEEE! The really fat stripey teacup is totally my favourite. So paunchy!  xD

Time to squeal over some kitchen stuffs!

Kitchenaid Artisan Mixers: Blueberry or Apple, that is the question

Kitchenaid Artisan Mixers: Blueberry or Apple, that is the question

OKAY SO THIS LIST HAS LESS SUPER GORGEOUS THINGS ON IT THAT I WAS EXPECTING! It also has less quirky stuff on it than I was expecting. Apparently most of what I want is achingly practical. WHAT’S THAT ABOUT!? xD But still, the IDEA of a lot of these things has me salivating – especially as whenever I try and make anything on the Damn Daring Bakers Challenges, they always require me to use something that I don’t own so I dodgy up other things in their stead. xD I’d like to be less dodgy – or as a friend put it, ~~INNOVATIVE~~ – especially when it comes to using a stand mixer with all the delicious attachments.

The faithful and long serving electric hand beaters we have are on their last legs… Recently using it its motor started to kinda.. Burn… ^_^;;

Doesn’t EVERYONE want this for their birthday?

Kitchenware pretties to come, but Jenji just linked this and honestly? I’d LOVE to have THIS much free time on my hands. xD

So pretties, time to petses!

Apple Butter on Marianne Dashwood from Shop Yarn Love


I was bullied by my mans last night into posting a birthday wishlist. As I have no real idea on what I actually WANT O_O;; I decided to instead use it as an excuse to go check out some massive pretties that I’ve been avoiding doing because WHO HAS MONEY FOR THAT?!? xD So this way its not REALLY torture, its research. *nods*

 

What follows is Part One of my ~research~ xD YARN LOVE!! A whole mess of yarns from stores that I’ve wanted to try out for AGES because the photos make me want to touch them so completely..!

But what if you soiled them, like the three little kittens?

Jessie Steele Designer Aprons

While on the hunt for new replacement measuring spoons because I BROKEDEDNESS BEC’S TABLESPOON MEASURE, AUUGH! – I stumbled upon these DELECTABLE Jessie Steele Designer Aprons at the The Cupcake Courier. HOW SWEET ARE THEY?!

Only problem is, I’m MORE than sure I’d be terrified of getting them dirty when actually cooking/baking. Which isn’t exactly what one wants out of an apron. But still: DO WANT! ♥
