old shoe planter diy.

I'm an easy-to-care-for plant kinda gal. That's why I have a bit of an obsession with cacti. I'm also an easy-to-do diy project kinda gal so here's my old shoe planter diy:

 I gathered together an old shoe, some newspaper, gold spray paint and a pretty new cactus I bought a few days ago. I removed the shoelaces and stuffed the shoe with newspaper so as not to get paint on the interior.

 I spray painted the exterior of the shoe including the tongue and the sides of the soles and left it for one hour to fully dry.

Lastly, I filled the shoe with soil, leaving a small indentation for the cactus. I then placed the cactus in and added a little more soil around the sides and pressed down the soil under it was firmly in place.

 That's it! At the moment it's living on our mantelpiece but I have neglected my bedroom decor a little bit lately so I might move it up to my dressing table soon.

lazy sunday.

Today was spent unpacking after our holiday, watching Toy Story and hanging around the house waiting for that misty rain to disappear which never did. It's good to be back!

a family holiday.

 We headed on a holiday to the south of France this week. We stayed in a little mobile home in a lovely family run campsite and tried to cram in as much as we could in 4 days. I don't think Nancy has quite grasped the idea of a holiday yet as she kept asking "Go on holdays?" every day we were there! Nonetheless, she seemed to enjoy herself a lot and is proving to be a little trooper when travelling.

life lately.

Summer is well and truly over as I'm listening to the rain outside and wearing a big cardie and I'm still feeling a bit chilly. It came and went so quickly, didn't it?! Tomorrow we're off on a little camping holiday to France to get a bit more sunshine before things really get wintery. The past week we launched the Oh Me, Oh My DIY! website, I finished up two A Little Bird Told Me projects and I've been photographing new stock for the online store. So, I'll gladly take this holiday and try my very best to unplug as much as possible.

little adventures.

 Ice-cream and pizza are most definitely Nancy's favourite foods. My efforts of trying to get her to eat more fruit and vegetables are not really working and apples are as far as she ventures. So this week, as she's been a little under the weather and as a result, not up for dinnertime tantrums, I caved big style. We went for pizza at the start of the week and this little toddler put away half a pizza and a tub of ice-cream afterwards. Everything in moderation, eh?!
