Autumn Cooking & sewing

Although we've had some lovely sunny days here in the UK, you can really feel the Autumn chill in the early morning & evening air.  I've noticed I'm starting to crave soups instead of salads and to celebrate some seasonal produce fresh from my Dad's garden I made some Butternut Squash soup & a Blackberry Crumble at the weekend.  Delicious!

At daisyfleur, we've been embracing the change of season by introducing some new dresses in richer autumn tones like our pretty deep blue liberty dress & burnt orange jumper pictured here.  Perfect to layer over a cream sweater, woolly tights or leggings.

anne of green gables

Anne is one of our favourite literary heroines so are delighted and honoured to see we have been included in a treasury inspired by her.  We share a love of puffed sleeves with Anne and definitely cite her as one of our inspirations.  Please click here to see the treasury in its original form if you would like to comment.

And I'd like to finish with one of my favourite Anne quotes:

"Marilla, isn't it nice to think that tomorrow is a new day with no mistakes in it yet?"

Scented sachets of love

As promised here are some images of some of the projects we are working on using our organic Lincolnshire lavender. We started with some lavender hearts which I call scented satchets of love but this title could equally apply to the sweet little lavender bags we are making as these are perfect little gifts for friends, family or someone you love.
These would also be a perfect sleep aid for anyone you know who has trouble sleeping.  We feel wonderfully calm after a scented sewing session!

More yellow & frogs!

To continue the yellow theme, I wanted to share with you a picture of recent custom made pinafore we made.  It was commissioned by a friend for her 6 month granddaughter and the cute little frog theme was specially requested.  We're thinking about making some similar dresses with different motifs such as flowers & butterflies or an animal of choice.  Do let us know what you think.

Spring Yellows

The br
ight Spring weather in the UK (following a grey windy rainy spell) has inspired me to create a 'buttercup yellow' treasury on etsy.  Yellow is a lovely fresh colour and seems the perfect colour to represent Spring.  My garden is full of little brightly coloured yellow Narcissus, primroses & crocus and the shops are full of daffodils at the moment.  

Follow the link if you'd like to comment on the items I selected:

Flapper Hats

Just a quick post to share a lovely shop with you where I recently purchased a 1920s style chocolate brown felt flapper hat featuring a pretty pink brooch.  FeltFancy have lovely soft comfortable stylish hats based on modified 1920s vintage patterns.  With a wide range of colours to choose from & pretty embellishments or brooches to  decorate, Stephanie (who runs FeltFancy) is more than happy to spend time customising the perfect hat to suit you.  See below for some of my currant favs from her store!

Happy Life Stamping

Happy New Year!
Its been a while since I've blogged so I thought I'd kick off this snowy day by sharing a great little Etsy Shop I've just come across. Not only do they have a great name - Marchare, inspired by the March Hare in Alice in Wonderland's mad hatters tea party (regular followers will know I have expressed my love of this book before!) but they sell wonderfully sweet little stamp sets.  I've fallen in love with the Happy Life Wood Stamp Set and also the Love Themed and Simple Pattern sets shown here.  Check out the Antique Style sets and many other wonderful items in their etsy shop.
