Full Swing

I love to admire finer details and at this time of the year, with the festive spirit in full swing, I probably find the small things more impactual than the grander gestures.

Whether it be the tiny sequins formed upon your dress to create a pattern or the winter blooms upon your place settings, the best way to make a memorable experience for yourself and your guests this Christmas is to focus on the little stuff. I’m looking forward to making individual place settings for each of my family for Christmas and decking my halls with one off unique finds that I have picked up out and about.

I would love to hear your Christmas ideas this year!

Muted

The thing that attracted to me to these two images is the intricate detailing that they hold. The use of the muted tones in both ¬†allow the beauty to shine through. I’m mesmerised by the craftsmanship that has applied to create such visually stunning pieces.

SWOON.

Up Close

I always find that when you take time out to inspect something close up, that even the most everyday of items can hold inspiration. This week I have found myself studying images that I have found and paying attention to not what is just at the forefront of the images, but the detailing surrounding it….

Happy Friday!

Just So

I appreciate when things are finished off with a loving touch. I always take notice of detailing and think it’s a sign of pride in what’s been created.

Whenever I buy an item I always study the finish – when buying a dress I always check out how the hemline has been completed or that the beading is stitched just so and when I wrap gifts I like the outside edge to be trimmed perfectly and for the folds to match up…oh, am I confusing attention to detail with OCD? Hmmm.

I’ve recently fallen madly and deeply for scalloped edging on everything from bedding to stationary…
