So to celebrate, today's collection of beautiful snowy white images from 'all colours in' are to pay homage to the snow... I know, kinda obvious really... ;)
I know lots of you lovely folks have lots of snow just now, so where ever you are I hope you have a fun and cosy Monday... :)
Quite a tenuous link really, considering that "Black Friday" has nothing to do with the colour black (but I suppose that does really depend on what you will be shopping for today!?) nor does it really exist here in the UK. But when the inspiration is there you gotta go with it and it does make for quite a pretty palette.
Anyhow, I too shall be taking part in the Black Friday event by having a wee sale in the shop this weekend, keep your eyes peeled for all the details over on my Facebook page.
Until next week my dears, I do hope you all have a great weekend and that the snowy weather doesn't cause too much disruption for you!?
We were all set to visit family but were thwarted by a flat car battery! So instead of spending a lovely weekend with relatives we spent a slightly quieter but equally lovely weekend at home. Yesterday I had a lazy morning in bed before doing a spot of grocery shopping and then spent the afternoon in the kitchen making huge pots of soup, a tray of flapjack and a delicious seafood risotto for dinner. Its good to have a real 'homely' day every now and then... :)
Now back to today, I do hope you are enjoying these beautiful images from 'all colours in'? The tweedy shades are a richer and more varied take on Friday's 'november pastels'. I just love these seasonal colours and still can't get enough of these soft linen greys. Today I think they just look so good with red, orange, purple, green and gold jewel colours. What do you think ... ?
Wishing you all a less rainy Monday that Edinburgh is having... !
Hello my dears!
I do hope you don't mind a few more grey and gold inspired neutrals today? I'm still being drawn to their soft and seasonal tones but today I think they look just as beautiful with a few pastels thrown into the mix. Soft lilacs and purples with a hint of muted aqua and olive, 'November pastels' as I like to think of them. Those muddy shades of late autumn before the winter snow arrives and adds that crisp icy edge to these colours. I don't know about you but this palette make me want a wee tipple of that well known, creamy Irish liqueur... still a wee bit early though, maybe later... ;)
It has been lovely to get back to regular blogging this week and thank you so much for stopping by with your sweet comments, I appreciate them all very much!
Wishing you all a fabulous weekend,
Before I go I just wanted to mention a couple of exciting things from today. The first is that one of my Mam's gorgeous Hot Water Bottle Sweaters was featured on Victoria's lovely blog today... yay and double yay!
The second, if you haven't already heard, is that Etsy have started to introduce a range of currencies beyond the USD... woo-hooo! I can't tell you how long I've been waiting for them to take this step and I can't tell you how excited I am about this, really! I think it will be hugely positive for inviting a more international audience and making them a truly unique international marketplace. Speaking from personal experience I know it will make trading on the site a far less frustrating experience for all us non-US folks. Battling with a fluctuating exchange rate is just so tiresome, I recently gave up with altering my prices and just resigned myself to losing a few ponds here and there. But, that all changed today as I am now officially trading in GBP! You can still view all prices in your preferred currency but my list prices will now show as £'s instead of $'s. The change just means that I won't be losing out anymore!
Oh, I also noticed another new feature that Etsy are introducing this week... Coupon Codes. I haven't looked into this one yet but I know it's one that a lot of folk have been asking for.
Okey dokey then... I have rambled on enough tonight so I shall wish you all a wonderful evening and hopefully see you tomorrow!

Ah, back to the normal blogging routine and a lovely morning spent browsing 'all colours in'. It's kinda comforting, like slipping into your most cosy pair of slippers after spending the day in cold, muddy wellies... :)
It feels so good to start a fresh new week knowing that lots of things on the 'must do' list have been completed and crossed out. Of course there are still one or two things to tackle, but it does mean that this week I have more time for the equally important 'would like to do' list. I have a few crafty things I want to get started this week as well as spending time catching up around cyber land. My poor Pinterest boards have been neglected for far too long now... !
What is also making this Monday morning feel particularly great is that our building refurbishment work is coming to an end. Which means that after almost five months that horrible bright green debris netting has finally gone, as has most of the scaffolding. We are no longer bathed in a shadowy eerie green light whenever the sun shines and our wee world is looking so much brighter and lovely... yay!
I do hope you too have lots of things to make you smile this Monday morning... ?
