I love the tones in these marble planters by Sort London!

More planters! I love how cute the plants look sticking out of these spiky vases by Oli's Cupboard.

I've been really interested in all things mystical lately, palmistry, tarot cards, star charts, it's pretty fun! And this palmistry brooch by Misfit Makes is perfect!

And lastly, I love the graphic pattern on this shawl by Komana, and it's such a cute shape!

Have you found anything you love lately on Etsy? I'd love to see! And also feel free to check out my Etsy shop!

Life Lately.

I've been busy lately, but in a good way! Working part-time at my new(ish) job, testing out lots of textiles experiments to put new items in my Etsy shop, getting over-excited about the arrival of Spring, and watching a lot of random movies to keep me company doing textiles and creative things!

Had an evening trip to the beach, I love being so close to the sea, beaches definitely have something magical going on, I always feel amazing after a visit!

Visited Auckland Art Gallery, lots of new work being exhibited, some really random, and some super inspiring!

And lots of exciting textiles experiments, attempting not to get dye everywhere!

New to the shop.

I've finally gotten around to adding some new scarves to my Etsy shop. I popped a few silk cotton head scarves up, and also some wire headbands which I'm really excited about! You can play around with different styles a little more, as the wire helps to add a little bit of structure to them! Feel free to check them out here and let me know what you think.

Sketchbook Sunday.

At the first hint of spring sunshine last week I took a quick trip to the beaches just down the road from us. Took a pie and my sketchbook, and did some quick doodles in the sun!

Etsy Faves 04.

It's been a busy few weeks lately, learning lots at my new job, working on some new scarves to add to my Etsy shop, and getting excited by the first hints of Spring here in New Zealand! And I've got another round-up of some of my latest Etsy finds to share!

I love the cute pattern on this clever scarf  from The Link Collective. It's such a great size as well.

 I would love one of these candles for clarity, calmness and purity from Shopean. They sound so amazing and relaxing!
 This bangle from Leah Ball is gorgeous, I love the marble looking beads. 

This concrete lamp from GANT Lights is incredible, I love the gold inside! 

And lastly this speckled wrapping paper from Normans Printery, perfect for wrapping any of the above!
