green heaven....

well...we're back from our fantastic house swap with our friends in was a lovely holiday, and great to stay in unfamiliar yet familiar surroundings!

warning...this post is a bit 'green photo' heavy due to 2 brilliant trips to Kew Gardens...

let the green commence...

phew...all that green...just lovely!!

while we were away i managed to finish my pompom rug (pic to follow) in readiness for the Clutter City Craft Fair this Saturday...

and i've managed (inbetween cake making...park trips...mirangue making...hama dinner/tea/snacks...catching up with shopping etc etc etc) to make some lovely cushions for Saturday...again pics to follow

just a thought:

i'm always amazed when i'm in bed at night and i think about the day just gone and how much i have squeezed's important to me to have a bit of time to do what i like in the evenings, and with the small people on holiday and going to bed a little later these days, i can often be found sat in bed crocheting at midnight and beyond...(ever the romantic eh?!)


  1. Oooh! Succulents, cacti and Frida Khalo, looks fantastic!

    I think crocheting in bed is better than lying awake thinking of all the WIP and things not started yet and thinking 'when will I have the time!' x

  2. Oh haha, how funny that our photos are so similar! I'd like to know how you managed a shot of that lovely spiral staircase without getting steamy! x

  3. Hi Caroline ,
    Bounced off by someone’s ;) love for yarn, we realized that it was not just “granny circles” that drew us in!

    Ta-da… no wonder that we fell for “Kew Gardens”…

    Yes, we would love to show case your ventures/tips/trends/creations on our global platform.

    This is an exclusive space for your penmanship, where you can publish your connoisseur’s quest in the form of luring fashion blogs.

    That too you’re the one, who’s going to own this space! We would like to pass it on to others by featuring it on our global platform!

    Sulekha.US would be glad to present your fashion ventures to the Indian communities living abroad. We would love to connect them through one of the most vital channels i.e. fashion & style.

    It’s all yours and you’re going to own an exclusive fashion blog with Sulekha to share your fashion posts along with their back links.

    We would promote it across our wall and social media.

    Featuring your little creations on our home page would be a perk for our eager Indians, who are waiting for trends and style ranging from ‘grand’ to ‘on the go’.

    On the other hand, it’ll be our pleasure to feature your panache of styles on our home page.

    Sharing your passion for eye catchers might rejuvenate the senses of millions of Indians living abroad.

    Dress to kill!
