Fairy Time Knits (the content you didn't know you needed) 🏰

Back in the Easter holidays I was enjoying a charity shop browse with my family and I came across a beauty. I very almost didn't buy it because, let's face it, I already have my share of quirky, non-essential books and I am in the process of decluttering in preparation for moving out of my student house...BUT needless to say, I did buy it. I saw the infinite creative potential encapsulated within it's colourful pages and I knew that it was worth my £1.

My first thought for this book was that I would just use the pictures for collages and stuff because they are so darn 80s and iconic (just look at that kid's mullet!). But I am actually beginning to consider the idea that I might actually have a go at making one of these wonderfully hideous jumpers. As far as knitting patterns go these ones don't seem too complicated and the book has some basic tutorials on changing colours and stuff so I think it will be a fun challenge.  Watch out world! 

I scanned in every jumper in the book and I'm just going to share them with you now because they are just so good and this is the kind of joy you need more of in your life. Let me know which one is your favourite, I think mine has got to be the green one with the ugly duckling because it looks almost exactly like a baby seagull and also the little girl with the glasses is so cute! The Hansel and Gretel one is great too.

I'm back with a car boot sale haul

Hello! I'm here again after a brief hiatus! I'm hoping not to make that a regular thing but with deadlines (my last one ever of university lol*) and a serious case of perfectionism I just couldn't bring myself to post even though I had some good ideas in my head. After a proper sesh giving my blog a complete makeover I think I'm ready to try and occupy this internet space again.

I went to my first car boot sale of the year last week, a lovely bank holiday Monday outing with my friends in the sunshine. I managed to find some quality bargains so thought it would be fun to share them here as I'm quite passionate about second hand finds 😋 and I decided to make them into collages (nice).

Need I say more?! 

* YES I handed in my last ever uni work and I will be sharing all about it on here in the near future, I just need to sort through my photos and get my head around it all! Crazy times.
