Wooden Fox Decoration from Liberty. 8. Felt Stanley the Snowman Decoration from Accessorize. 9. Padded Christmas Decorations from Paperchase.
I found this picture on my travels through Pinterest and it made me smile. A shark isn’t something you would associate with hugs and kisses, but when he’s offering such a lovely toothy smile, how can you resist? : )

It’s another long weekend for me, and I am spending it with my sister in Cambridge. I’ve been looking forward to this trip all week, and now its upon us I’m feeling a little excited. This seagull dancing in the sky illustrates how I’m feeling and as he does his acrobatics, I can just imagine him shouting woohoo! So whatever your plans are for the weekend, make sure it’s met with a woohoo!

Pretty Dandy are an online independent interiors boutique, who find handmade, new designer & vintage home accessories. They support and feature some fantastic British designers, who’s work is not only beautifully hand crafted, but also quirky too. Pretty Dandy also organise the Pretty Dandy Flea, a craft, art and vintage market in Nottingham, where fellow creatives get the chance to sell their beautiful products.
On Saturday I visited the Pretty Dandy Flea for the first time and I found some great designers to share with you.
The Pretty Dandy stall featured a mix of vintage homeware and products from independent designers, including these lovely teapots, jugs and hand printed note books.
These quirky coasters are from the British designer Carly Dodsley. Each piece is beautifully hand drawn and then printed onto jugs, plates, coasters, mugs and more.
One of my favourite pieces was the peacock plate, it instantly caught my eye as it is so beautifully detailed….. I had to buy one before they all got snapped up!
Another designer which caught my attention was Ding Ding, a British designer who screen prints onto jewellery, accessories and textiles. I was drawn to her brightly coloured prints and quirky cards which featured on her lovely stall.
Over the past few weeks my photo of the day challenge has lead me to photograph some very random things – but that’s the fun of it, you never know what you’ll end up capturing. I think my favourite two photos has to be the Campbell’s soup tins and the caramel melting into the cream.
