I've Moved

Hey friends, we'll I'm slowly unpacking the boot after my move to Wordpress blogging independence. Update your bookmarks as you'll now find me at but will also still work. I hope you'll drop in for a visit soon.

I'm Moving...

Well not literally, this is a cyber move. I have decided to take the plunge and enter the world of a self-hosted Wordpress blog. Thanks to the lovely Tara at Scoutie Girl I'm setup and good to go. I would like to think that everything will go swimmingly but, well, that would be too Pollyanna of me. I hope you can put up with me while I'm ironing out my technology teething issues and moving my domain name, posts, images and comments. I will be reverting this blog back to and reclaiming current-observations for the new one. Wish me luck and I'll meet you on the other side.

Can I Help You?

I have a confession... I'm a bit of a web nerd. This has been many years in the making but it's something I love and 3 days a week I get paid to be one. So here's what I've been noticing. Many talented blogging artisans struggle with the technology behind their blogs. This was a resounding theme in Tara Frey's book Blogging Your Bliss and it started me thinking. For a while now I have been harbouring the idea of adding Tutorial or How To posts to my blog. Do you have a nagging question that you would like answered by a web nerd like me? Have you seen something cool on a blog and thought 'how did they do that?'. You have! Excellent... leave me a comment.

Colour Me Happy Wednesday :: Slate Grey

I didn't realise this before but the etsy colour search tools do not cater for black, white or shades of grey which makes sense being as they are 'colour' search tools. I do love what I found by doing a keyword search and it didn't take long at all for these treasures to appear. They are:
TOP: Sasha Sews Medium tote - Dandelion Circles - natural osnaburg linen. This store has a great range of storage boxes which is very timely now that I'm trying to work out how to store my fabric stash.
MIDDLE: Joom's Slate Bird on Cherry Blossom Pillow because you can never have too many pillows or birds or even cherry blossom for that matter.
BOTTOM: Gloaming Design's Deux Slate - Pillow Cover Vintage. I just love this cushion and I especially love this photo... so quintessentially French. Gloaming Designs shop owner splits her time between the US and France, now wouldn't that be nice?

Chocolate Anyone?

In our house Easter chocolates appear in nests in the garden on Easter Sunday. They build their nests (and ours) and our little men end up with a giant stash of assorted chocolate. It's the only day of the year that they can have chocolate with breakfast. I think we are now all overloaded on it - if that's possible. Here's a picture of my little man with his stash (the Easter bunny is very organised and fair) and his Mannie bear hot on the trail of the eggs left by the Easter bunny. Happy Easter everyone.
