Happy New Year!

'I only have eyes for you' by Elsita available here.

I'm back form my summer break. I spent many lazy days sitting on our balcony lookng out to sea, swimming, eating and generally soaking up the sunshine. There's something to be said for those endless summer days. I do love summers by the sea.

Here are a few things that managed to catch my attention while relaxing this summer:

firstly, Elsita who's work I have posted up above. She has some beautiful things in her etsy store for fantastic prices and an addictive blog too.

the incredible filigree work of Cal Lane, who uses her welding torch to cut baroque patterns into such mundane objects as shovels, Dumpsters and old oil drums.

Small Objects print gocco tutorial and the Flickr Gocco Pool. There are so many inspiring images in here it makes my head spin with possibilities.

and thanks to the watchful eye of Fran over at Mrs Eliot Books (who pointed me in the direction of these talented people) I am now in love with this dress and these amazing stitched pieces by Caroline Hwang.

I hope you've all had a wonderful start to the new year. I certainly have and it's about to get even better. We pick up our new pup on Thursday... I can't wait. xoxo
