for your guilty pleasure.............

I love my job, I get to do lots of  research online and come across some wee gems.  Because it's work I don't feel guilty when I come across blogs, and I come across some very cool ones! Sometimes relevant to what I am doing and sometimes not. But I love how there are lots of people from all walks of life doing/saying/making some cool things and thought I would share some of this blog love.  I also discover a few blogs on Facebook that people have shared, so if you see these posts check them out, you never know what you might find or find out and it may lead to something else or something else from there!

made from scratch
  Rachael McMahon and her blog Made From Scratch is her personal collection of treasures kept in one sweet place. Founded in August 2010, Made From Scratch was used to journal the creations, recipes and inspiration that lead up to her wedding day.   But has continued and blossomed into a trove of simple delicious home baking handed down to her by her Grandma, her Mum and recipes she has learnt along the way, DIY, wedding, living and celebration themed treasures to inspire you to live the most beautiful and handmade life.

the owl and the elephant
Once upon a time, two friends with a mutual love of drinking tea discovered that this was just the start. Conversations turned to fabric & furniture, revamping & repurposing, kids & craft ... it was here that the tale of The Owl & the Elephant began.........
