Hey! Today Im sharing a few photos of some terra-cotta pots I painted. We’ve been needing some greenery in the house and since the fireplace isnt working, I thought this would a good spot for some plants to hang out For the pots, I used masking tape to create different stripes and painted them using a cream coloured house paint. I love that test pots are so cheap! Have you got a favourite indoor plant? I’d love to add to my new collection! xo Bec
Here a few more kiwi photos for you all… The subject of this post: this beauuutiful cow! She stood there posing the whole time I was taking photos. So sweet. Apart from the amazing photo opportunities in the New Zealand countryside, I absolutely LOVE the smells here. The distinct and unexplainable smell of sea spray across native NZ bush. If any of you ever visit NZ I highly suggest going waaay out into nature and just sniffing! haha xo Bec
Here is my week in instagram photos, we are definitely in the middle of winter now with alot of snow on the mountains. The other night New Zealand had a 7.0 earthquake that was felt throughout the whole country. Arlo and I had just finished watching Sherlock Holmes so got a 3D experience! It got me thinking that I should make a survival kit though, just in case. Tomorrow I have a cool giveaway for you all, just as a wee thank you Have a fab weekend! xo Bec
Hello hello! Today Im sharing a few images of a clutch I made with the help of my mums cousin. She is extreeeeemely talented in the sewing department and has designed and made the most amazing quilts. She is also one family member that has always been interested and encouraging towards my creativity. So I was excited to have the chance to work alongside her and get a few sewing tips.
I wanted to make the clutch from this old shirt so we cut out the back panel and ironed it. For the clutch we used a simple rectangular design and sewed up the bottom edging. We also used the shirt pocket for the interior pocket of the clutch which I love! For any of you that know how to sew then this will be a super simple DIY…for me, there was a lot to learn! And I had fun learning from the queen of quilting! xo Bec
Whenever I need some DIY inspiration, I wonder around second hand stores just looking and piecing together random bits that might work and then suddenly an idea will come to me and I race home to create my vision! Today Im showing you a DIY using old badminton rackets which I found at our local recycle store. I absolutely LOVE how these turned out and now have them hung up in my bedroom.
First I found doilies that would fit inside the racket and using white thread I stitched around the edges. I think it would be cool to also dye some doilies for a spot of colour in your bedroom. I then hung up my two rackets using a nail. Place them however you want Then display your earrings! Grand total price for this project…$5! Yep, pretty pleased with that.
I must say I was pretty gosh darn excited when I got this image! I may have done a little dance Ok Il admit it now, I danced around the garden like Chandler from Friends dances. Ya know the dance?
Its being out in nature and taking photos like this that make me soooo enjoy photography…and love birds! Hope youre all having an exciting day! xo Bec
So just to have you all feeling a bit jealous of where I grew up, I took some sunset photos of what can be seen almost every morning from the front lawn.
