The Craft Cafe – Crochet Flower Garland Pattern & Tutorial
Hi everyone, this is Jenn from Color ‘n Cream and this is my first contribution to the Craft Café. I’m very excited to share my crochet Flower Garland Tutorial with you. It’s a colourful and flowery mini garland that will uplift one’s spirit. Have fun!
This is what you need: (Scraps of) yarn, crochet hook, scissors, darning needle. That’s all. I like to use my scraps for these flowers. Because they are so small, you only need a little and I have lots of scraps lying around. How about you? Continue reading →
Shabby Chic Romantic Style In Autumnal Hues from H&M
I’m not usually crazy about these shades when Autumn rolls around but recently I’ve undergone a shift in style and I’m favouring the genuine, Rachel Ashwell style Shabby Chic. This new range from H&M has black in it, that really seems to make the pale lilacs look even sweeter. They remind me of parma violets (sweets/candy) and now I want some! I really have to buy some of these little purple glasses, they’re just lovely.
I also really want to buy some cushions in a pink shabby style for my living room. I might even buy a black one to add a little more visual contrast, I haven’t decided yet. Something I have been contemplating though; do I want to paint and distress my ikea furniture? I think I might. I know it’s a huge task, which is why I’m giving it lots of thought and asking for some advice!

Hi guys! It’s been aaaaages :p I’ve been having a wonderful summer spending time with friends and family. I’ve also spent a complete flippin fortune! It turns out, if I don’t get to share all of my pretty finds with all of you I just buy them. So I’m stoney broke but you will get to see my lovely finds, I promise I will take photos. Promise. Let’s start with my CK stationery hawl!
This is a box of Cath Kidston post it notes, with a fabulous little magnetic closure; I love those kinds of boxes!
And these are the post it notes! I love decorative post it notes and I love the fact that they’re a huge thing at the moment, everybody is including them in their new design ranges. They’re great for the home office and for journalling!
These little guys are from the Cath Kidston ‘kids’ range but I love them, they’re great exercise books and a perfect size for me! They’re A5 and I had bought some from the summer range and used them as my gratitude journals. The size means I can print out free printable journalling cards and stick them in. I love it!
I wrote on that little memo paper on the front of the exercise books but that little sharpie pen is very light indeed!
So I darkened my little sticky note from the note set I bought! Haha. Was it really worth it? Don’t worry I’m asking myself that question.
I also had to and I mean HAD TO, buy this yellow mug from the new range! I also repainted the bedroom this summer! It’s a minty shade instead of the baby blue.
