What a magnificent Sunday! Although working I was lucky enough to be able to take my laptop outside and enjoy the glorious sunshine, the birds, the butterflies and the odd bumble bee. I am so happy spring is here.
Thanks to one of my new favorite blogs (yes, I know I should have been working) Creature Comforts, I discovered these delicate porcelain feathers. These are so going on my Christmas list. You can check them and lots of other lovely stuff at Velocity.

Emily Sutton crafts these exquisite song birds by hand and details them with delicate stitching and paint. I admire the amount of love and patience that must have gone into making them. You can see more of these little darlings on Emily’s website (found via Oh Joy)

I am currently on a week’s break from work and as luck would have it, the heavens have opened and the wind is howling. The idea of running any errands on my scooter is not that appealing, So instead I have an Americano and my laptop and I can browse to my hearts content.
Check out these two fabulous Etsy stores, “Trace My Face” and “In my Backyard“.
Traci creates these delicate prints (top), I love her amazing use of colour and attention to detail, check her work out here, and “In My Backyard” (bottom) crafts these cute fabric printed bird patches (found via Decor8). I likes!
