Oh, to be free as a birdie

I've sadly become a terrible blogger...I used to be so good - sometimes I'd even blog 2 or 3 times a day about various going-ons. Now, it's more like 2 or 3 times a month. And I miss the lovely blogger community and just taking the time to sit down and have a little wander around all my favourites and other cyber haunts like Etsy and Madeit.

Life has gotten in the way! Businesses to run, studies to attend to and husbands to nag (not really...o.k sometimes...he likes it though...)
I'm always startled it's Friday - then the weekend flies by in a blink and away we go again.

I know! that's everybody elses life as well.

So, lets take 5 minutes out of our hectic day and look at pretty things...with birdies on them

...like these:






Someone...please buy me a handmade lamp from the Etsy store The Owls are Hunting




Made from reclaimed and vintage materials from the 60's, 70's and 80's




I'm in love...






or, I'd also be happy with adorable handmade little scarf from MINGUS. Who also makes lovely vintage inspired bits and pieces from reclaimed and recycled fabrics











and finally...
You can snap this little cotton tee up from Erin Jane at Strawberry Jam - home of all things handmade and vintage inspired...

It is crazy how time flies....I love that lamp its so cool. And that tee is cute as. I love window shopping on etsy, I've bought a few things on there but can't really afford stuff on there right now :(

There are some amazing pieces on Etsy and this lamp is adorable! Its a shame our exchange rate plus the postage is so painful right now though isn't it?!
Keep posting the gems you find!
Thought I would add your blog to mine if that's ok? I'm having a giveaway you might be interested in too :)

Oh, the nagging I've been doing lately, it's criminal! My poor husband.
Thanks so much for your lovely congrats! And I, too, have been totally MIA on the blogosphere, it's been a busy year.
