Eliza Doolittle's singing makes me happppy!

I'm excited to hear Eliza Doolittle at the Brick Lane Takeover next week. Perfect summer songs and the nerdy guy in this video is adorable. Enjoy!

I love gardening

Some friends and I spent our bank holiday clearing our friend Nikki's jungle garden. This is what it looked like before although Julia's already attacked much of it with her power tool cutty thing...

...and here's what it looked like once we'd finished. (I got to use a cutty power tool thing on this side- fun!). Once all the weeds are gone then I think Nik's going to lay turf- hoping to help on that bit too.

Tasty bit of skirt

Someone gave me this skirt, which is kind of witchy.

Definitely witchy slash frumpy librarian...

So I tied up the hem with ribbon to make it wearable. I need to replace the ribbon with elastic to make it more puffy but this'll do in the meantime. Huzzah!!

Ja, I'm posting about floors...

My brother and I have to replace the floors in the flat as they're water-damaged. So we're looking at what to get.

The above are black gloss floorboards apparently, though I think they look blue. Never gonna happen in our little basement flat but I like this pic and its blue hue.

This would be cool if if it wasn't so bumpy. And minus the girly pink.

I like this floor, as posted on House of Turquoise. It's like a beach hut.

None of these floors are really what I'm after though- I think I'd like smart and lucious dark wood with cream walls and non-shiny skirting. Dark-ish, not black. And I'd like little fairy floor people to come and dry all the floors and fit new ones while I'm sleeping one night.

Screenprinter Caro!

I went on a screenprinters course yesterday and this is what I made! It's from a photo I've been hoarding for ages and am totally in love with and now I know how to screenprint I kind of wish I'd added something to make more of a stamp on it. But hey ho, still love it- I printed it in browny olive to make it look antiquey. I'm looking to do a printmaking course starting in September- just need to earn the mullah. Huzzah!

I did the course at Print Club in Dalston- once you know what you're doing (or not I guess) you can join and just use the studio. Nice!

Three things I love today...

...1. This picture. It's spectacular amazing! I borrowed (?!) it from English Muse.

2. Rediscovering how totally delicious camomile tea tastes.

3. Riding to and from work on my bike, though I don't quite look like this! Pic courtesy of an old post on Riding Pretty.
