Table all finished… Mahogany pedestal table with leaf leaf cherry bowl attached to top
Fortune Boat Lamp
you will need:
- 9 Fortune Boats (try mixing different colours)
- 1 stapler
- 1 small glass jar
- 1 small tealight or votive candle
I absolutely love this “memory jar” idea. Throughout the year, record special days or funny things that occurred onto slips of paper and store them in a jar. At the end of the year(or whenever you need a pick-me-up), read through them all and enjoy!

Ruffles tutorial here!
Here goes a free pattern for a Croco-Flower. It’s quite easy and gives you an interesting 3-D effect. It can be worked in any yarn weight. However, heavier weight yarns like worsted or bulky weights works best to give it a sturdier and nice texture. Even the good ol’ Red Heart Super Saver works fine for this flower. Enjoy it!

Spike Necklace DIY | Phosphene
I’m super addicted to studs at the moment! I love that this necklace is tough yet dainty. Is that possible? Well it is so there! I have no idea where to get studs in Adelaide though - I think I might be able to find the flatish square ones at Spotlight but I’m not sure about the spikey studs. But I really need this necklace, so I’m prepared to go on a quest to find them (with help from my Adelaidian friends?!)
Make Your Own Celia Birtwell Stencil Print Bag | The Observer
I love Celia Birtwell’s clothing, especially the collection she did for Topshop. The Observer has a ton of awesome DIYs by famous designers (more coming!) but this was my favourite. Also the stencil is a free download, woo! So pretty. And if you don’t have the skills or can’t be bothered sewing your own bag, you can get cotton bags all over the place. If you’re in Aus, I know you can get them for $2 from Lincraft! Cute and cheap!
