Oh Me, Oh My DIY! autumn workshop.

 We held our autumn Oh Me, Oh My DIY! workshop in the Flying Enterprise last Sunday and oh boy, was it a success! Myself, Jill & Leona had spent a few late nights, countless emails and copious amounts of coffee getting this workshop ready. I gotta say, it was a bit nerve wrecking on Sunday morning with just an hour before our attendees were to arrive and there was still a long list of things to do, signs to hang, supplies to buy but we pulled it off with the help of a few mentors just as the first attendees were arriving.
Jack from The Rocket Man started the day off with a pantry and pickling demo, followed by fashion designer Alice Halliday with a refashioning workshop. We then took a break for lunch and enjoyed a delicious and healthy lunch from The Rocket Man and then headed straight back into some more diy with a furniture upcycling lesson with Joanne from Kyle Lane. Since Aoife from Potty but Posh was a big hit the last time, she returned this time and taught everyone how to make their own whimsy. Before we headed into our last workshop of the day, we took a little break for some tea, coffee, apple and blackberry tart and then Jill of Wild Floral Couture did an awesome workshop making bouquets filled with foraged flowers and foliage. To finish up the day, we toasted our diys with some prosecco and elderflower juice and took lots of fun group photos.
The response we've had from attendees and onlookers on social media in the past few days has been unbelievable. It's scary and exciting to think this Oh Me, Oh My DIY! thing could be bigger than the three of us ever planned but we're already planning our winter workshop on the 7th December.

Here's a little video of last Sunday (my first attempt at video and editing). I hope you like it!

life lately.

 Life lately, where do I start?! It's been up and down, good and bad. A new bike for Little Nancy which have been keeping us all busy up and down to the park everyday. Old worries for me, keeping me up late at night. Hot chocolate dates, a first morning in creche and plenty of work with the online store, Oh Me, Oh My DIY! and A Little Bird Told Me. One thing's for sure, life ain't boring!

So it ain't news that I'm a bit weak for vintage clothing! And seeing as I have a LOT of autumn/winter stock in the online store I've decided to pick out a few of my favourites for the next 7 days and share them with you all on my Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Just search #weekforvintage and of course, share you own photos if you're a vintage addict too!

little nancy's second birthday.

 We celebrated little Nancy's birthday yesterday with lots of cake, Peppa Pig, family and friends. She was a little overwhelmed at the start but soon got into the swing of things and keep running up to the table filled with sweet things shouting "Chocolate Me!" This little two year old knows what she wants and how to ask for it. Hope you had a wonderful day little miss.
