Matryoshka Dolls

Hope everyone had a good weekend. I finally got to make one of my little Matryoshka dolls! I sewed this one as a gift to my friend's daughter for her birthday. I think it turned out very nice. She seemed to really like it, she kept giving her kiss's.

My favorite color is Turquoise, and ever since I spotted this Kitchen Aid mixer it's been driving me CRAZY! I'm obsessed! I have a special edition Red one, but I want to sell it and get this color instead! Am I nuts? (yes)
 My blog today is all about Turquoise. One day when we own our own home I would really like to incorporate it into our space, and especially the kitchen. Here are just a few photos I found for inspiration!

My very talented girlfriend has an amazing  food blog called Vanilla Clouds and Lemon Drops. She is a great chef and baker, every time I go there she's made something so good.  I had the Cute as a button ones the other day and mmmmm yum! 
I love cupcakes so so much, I'd like to start making them more, but that doesn't really go well with a wedding around the corner, but I will be making some for my son's 1st Birthday. 
 I though I'd share these cute little lovelies with you, enjoy!

Bird shots

I made the spicy chicken chilli from my last blog post for dinner the other night, and it was so good. I highly recommend it. I did however use Mexican hot sauce instead of the canned chilies but I'm sure it didn't make much of a difference. I also made the cheese biscuits from that Blog to go with it, mmm mmm good!

So I've finally uploaded my Mexican pictures!! I thought I would show them off in sections. 
As I learnt taking photos of birds in not an easy thing.  I took most of these photos with extreme zoom so they are not crystal clear quality, but I am quit happy with the way they turned out. 

                                Thanks Tereza

Bliss Living

Bliss Living makes the most amazing duvets!!! The designs are so incredible and I find that anyone of them adds so much character to a room. The place I used to work  before I had my son sold their line, so I got to see a lot of the duvets and I must say they are stunning.  

My Fiancee and I have the below duvet, love it in our room, and sleeping under it!

Vintage cups

With all the talk of vintage, I scanned the net and found some beautiful images of teacups & saucers.  Makes me want to go to the second hand stores some more!  Since it's actually a beautiful sunny day, a walk might be in order!
