How's a girl meant to sit inside slaving over a hot sewing machine / pot of fabric paint / embroidery hoop when the sun is shining and the birds are singing and buds are....... budding? Today Munchkin and I potted up some pansies, and then family pickled weasel ate dinner outside. It felt like we were on holiday :)
It's meant to be sunny tomorrow, but then gets cloudier during the rest of the week, so I'm sure some craft related action will take place by Thursday. In the meantime you'll find me sitting on the bench outside, trying to ensure munchkin keeps her sunhat on :)

Anyhoo, time for Five from Folksy. We also saw my cousin this weekend who has just fixed a date for his wedding, so I thought I'd use that as a theme. I have 3 weddings to go to this year - hooraaaaay! New dresses, getting drunk and dancing badly, some of my favourite things.
This unusual card from Under the Stair Studios would be a lovely keepsake.
These Lovebird Bowls from Prince Design UK would make a great wedding present.
I'm a bit of a sucker for cufflinks (mr pickled weasel has many pairs), and these ones from Nina Carolyn Jewellery would be perfect for a groom.
And for bridal hair, these flower pins from Claire's Crystal Classics.
Finally, these little gift boxes from Gooseberry Moon could be used for wedding favours.

I'd be stitching one of the free patterns over at Badbird's blog. They're just yummy.
Then I'd make myself a mini terrarium. Mine would have a squirrel in it.
And finally (after afternoon tea and scones), I'd make a start on this supercute little hat for munchkin, from Sockpixie.
