You probably noticed I have unexpectedly been offline for the last couple of weeks but I am back...Yay!
One of my first stops this morning was to check in on Megan's blog Mae Mae Paperie to see what she has been up to and I was delighted to see these lovely calling card stamps that are now available in her shoppe.
I know you have heard me say 'I need this in my life' many times before as I swoon over all sorts of pretty little things but I'm telling you, I really, really do!
I'd love for you to fill me in on what you have been up to while I have been away from the blog so leave me a comment and say hello!

Autumn is here! ...well at least it is in my little corner of west London.
Red and gold leaves have been falling from the tress, hundreds of conkers are bursting from their spiky green shells and there is a definite chill in the air. All these little signs that winter is on it's way have got me thinking about knitting.
In my search for some new patterns to try I stumbled across a fantastic Norwegian blog called Pickles which has all sorts of lovely, cozy patterns which I know you will love too. In fact many of the patterns Heidi and Anna blog would be perfect if you are looking for gift ideas to work on for the holiday season!
The Pickles blog runs along side the Pickles yarn and pattern store founded by Heidi and Anna who are both self confessed 'yarn nerds' :) They stock beautiful yarns in both neautral shades and gorgeous on trend colours that are easy to mix and match for creating your own colour palettes.
I will definitley have to try knitting one of their designs and then I can show you the results here! I love the traditional looking Warm Winter Mitts shown at the top of this post, they would go perfectly with the new navy coat I bought this season.
Happy knitting friends!
