Made by Mum

I've just spent a lovely Saturday thrifting with my mum and sister. We all love a good bargain! Mum, who loves charity shops will happily tell everyone who comments on her fabulous outfits what she bought out of a charity shop and how much it cost. Mum has a magpie eye for spying the perfect necklace that she'll team with her outfit, she's always so well coordinated! My mum's a super crafty lady, back in the day mum used to make her own clothes, she would crochet, do needle point and macrame, she loves her garden and is a great baker, I think mum has had a very strong influence on what I love to do! I have a few things around my home that mum has made and I thought I'd show them to you.

Mum, if you're reading this, you're great!  A very talented lady!

Hope you're having a lovely weekend! I'll share my purchases on the blog this week, but not all of them! say no more, say no more xxxx


  1. She is a clever lady! Love the dog! x

  2. I absolutely love that tapestry picture, the colours are gorgeous! It looks fab surrounded by all the other prints and pictures too.

  3. What a talented Mum you have! My Mother in Law was the same and it's lovely to know you have something made by someone you love - makes it all the more special doesn't it? x
