Polly Dolly - Bride

Going to the chapel 
and going to get married.....

Here comes the bride for another Polly Dolly challenge


Polly Dolly has given us a chance for us to take that walk the aisle again and we get to choose a beautiful gown for the occasion and all the trimmings.
I absolutely love this gown from Elianna Moore, the detailing and just how it flows, so romantic.
And yes more diamonds too and just a bit bigger and more bling.
A beautiful bouquet of roses and a pretty beaded purse.
Reds, pinks, blush roses and much much more to give the day a splash of colour.... I'm going to be a bride for a day.

Blog This ... Baby Love

Baby Love.....
I love their soft chubby cheeks. So plump and round that you just want to pinch and kiss them. My little Jacob was one of those chubby cheeked babies and I just adored the way his face would almost double in size when he smiled with those cheeks. He still has some of that adorable baby chubbiness but with each active month he is growing up more to be a boy than that baby I once cradled in my arms. A toddler with an mind for exploring and discovering his world and getting bigger all the time .... a sometimes Mr Terrible Two but not really he'll always my baby.

My all time fav photo with his blonde wig. It always makes me laugh.

Jacob and Ash

Double cheeked and a dimple too.  

Chuckling with laughter.

Blog This is having a photo challenge and this one is called Baby Love. Come and join in the fun with your adorable baby photos.

Lily Bag in Lorenza

I recently got this beautiful fabric from Alexander Henry's Lorenza collection. It's been on my wishlist for so long and I finally my hands on some of it. The first thing I love about this print are the bold colours and I'm always a fan of retro looking floral prints. The design just makes a statement with this print and you can use it for day or night.

So to start off my first handmade bag using this fabric, I came up this this design which is quite similar to my Dahlia Bags but using a zip as the closure and having an adjustable strap so that it can be used as a shoulder bag or a message bag. 

My newest bag .... the Lily Bag using Lorenza in Onyx by Alexander Henry.... and so named Lily after an aunty and also to go with all my other bags named after flowers!

I've use Lorenza in Onyx by Alexander Henry and black cotton drill for the contrast. It is fully lined with beige cotton drill and interfaced to make it sturdy and all seams are reinforced. It has 2 inner pockets for your purse, ipod and phone; and another inner pocket with a zip and a swivel clip for your keys. The bag closes with a zip closure.


Width Top: 13"
Width (Widest): 16"
Depth: 3"
Height: 12"
Adjustable Strap Length: 21.5" - 36" nickel sliders

Interior has 2 pockets and 1 zip pocket
1 x Zipper Pocket: (W)9" x (L) 6"
1 x Pocket: (W)8" x (L)5.5"

Polly Dolly - Little Black Dress

This week Polly Dolly is going out with her Little Black Dress to celebrate her 52 weeks of dazzling us with her beautiful collections and her inspiration at Danimezza

little black dress

This week I was inspired by the ever beautiful Elizabeth Taylor for her gorgeous beauty and the wonder actress that she was. So I've gone for the lovely diamonds that a girl must always have just like Elizabeth. A white diamond ring, diamond bracelet and hoop diamond earrings and speaking about White Diamonds the parfum too. A black lace dress to capture the romance and grace of the night, and together with crystal black shoes and a dazzling diamond black clutch. I think I'm ready for that night out with my little black dress and a memory of a beautiful person.
