Gone are the days of painting the town red
Now I’m just blogging red photos instead
#coloryourworld – Red
Was nice to see a blast from the past though:
Gah now I will have this stuck in my head!
After a long day I have enjoyed a little time to relax and flick through some photos and images, in the hopes of finding some lovely images for you and the #coloryourworld campaign.
Today’s colour is peach:
So I found a couple of favourites which I am hoping will be okay to use on here because they are ones which make me smile.
First up: The lovely Lady china looking peachy
Hopefully my friend won’t mind me sharing the picture of one of her fur babies.
If you enjoy knitting / crochet then you might want to check out her projects over at ravelry too, she is very talented!
My second image found is one received from Kickstarter and also probably wanting permission but hopefully the advertising plug will be of use:
I so love this image and the book that it relates too. If you enjoy interactive game books, Alice in Wonderland, great writing, fantastic artwork or fantasy fiction (basically if you enjoy fun and / or admire talent) then I advise you go grab yourself a copy of this book – it’s amazing!
And check out his blog: HERE
Ok, so he might not match the words but he matches the colour, and lets be honest we can all imagine this little guy with a space helmet on … can’t we??

Every now and then I find myself in a little dip of moods so these days I try to keep a bit of money to the side so that when it hits I can have a little shopping splurge to cheer myself up again. Nothing like being woken with presents through the post, it’s like Christmas, only the postman doesn’t have a white beard and I tend not to leave him any milk and cookies out.
Anyhow I thought that since my twitter account might have been feeling a little Warcraft heavy of late and I didn’t get around to helping anyone out with an #FF yesterday then it might be time to show a bit of crafter love.
So here are my latest goodies from a splurge (in no particular order), and links to the wonderful artistic people so you can check them out for yourselves.
First up: Melissa Nettleship
I really liked her style of art and had been enjoying seeing the Alice in Wonderland theme pictures flashing up on Twitter, however there was something extra special about the Bear & Maiden one that I loved but I couldn’t justify a print with nowhere to put it. So when it got turned into a notepad that was me sold, and I was glad to find the funky kitty Avenger badges too. Oh and the bargain print that was on sale…well I couldn’t pass that up could I?
The Spotted Zebra Company
Another twitter spotted purchase .. yep I’m a sucker for em. But this bag was the perfect accompaniment to a dress that I have and after noticing my trusty canvas messenger bag was on it’s way out then I thought this could be a perfect replacement. (see how well I talked myself into that there). I have no excuse for the purse though other than the fact it amused me.
Just a random Etsy find for me as I wanted something with the hand stamped lettering and was wavering over to the geeky side of things. I found the Nightmare before Christmas spiral first but then noticed The Shaun of the Dead bangle was on sale too so again <bargain hunter senses alerted>
They also sell some lovely looking spiral rings but I have no idea of my size so maybe that’s something for a future purchase 😀
All of these purchases came with speedy delivery & packaged with care, so actually it worked out better than Christmas because nobody used Yodel to deliver *cheers*
So that’s three places to check out, I have plenty more but I wouldn’t want to over load your credit cards all in one day 😉
