DaDa for ToSho

Topshop project. Our brief was to design a collection for ToSho based on an art movement (I chose Da Da)
I upcycled one of my Grandpa's old suits and turned it into a blazer with a duck feathered collar.
I also made some panelled leggings in contrast fabric, a plain printed T and a sweet little polka dot skirt.
I think I ran out of time for the project and wasn't completely convinced with the result but it works in it's own way even if it didn't go 100 per cent as intended :)

 Little toadstools in the forest.
 I like the texture of these little fellows they  would be cool to imitate.

One Day This Will Be My House...

Even sneezing can be pleasant with this little fellow to help you out :)

Maizie Lorna Windass

This is a little name cube I made for my brand new cousin Maizie Lorna Windass this summer, she's gorgeous of course, and hopefully this will be something she can keep to remember her childhood :)

A lace lit room? yes please...

Inspired by my new surroundings, which I recently discovered include a healthy crop of mould under my window and a sparse light bulb with a crude white shade, it dawned on me there must be some better options. I found this beautiful lampshade made from vintage doily's, I love how beautifully it casts the light and shadows across the room.

one. two. three. four. five. six. seven. eight.

How sweet are these little jam jar lights? They could easily be made with fairy lights for summer garden parties and festivals too :)
I thought this lamp had a really interesting structure and the cards made it a bit cool, although it does look like it could sit quite happily in most 14 year old boys rooms...

My search for lamps dwindling I was lead astray by these darling floating vases, if only I had a kitchen with natural light/ could open my curtains without getting gail force drafts?

Homage to urban outfitters/Be gone Halifax goblin


Although only three weeks and two days have passed since I received my student loan, due to unexplainable costs and expenditures, I have no other option but to conclude that there must be some small goblin creature sitting in Halifax's vault nabbing my dollar, (this I assure you is the truth, the same thing has happened to my friends and their loans) and thus I no longer have the resources to purchase any of the items featured.. Fl/hl

I thought this was a bit interesting? Reusable/Repositionable wipe clean wallpaper so as soon as you get bored you can move it round the room/house/squat... Definite win.

But as much as I love Urban outfitters £45 is not an amount I would be readily parted with in exchange for what is effectively a white washed picture frame (charity shops across the country, 50p) and some Blackboard paint (£3.70 for 250ml).
If anyone knows anyone who has purchased this, please take their money off them, they're obviously not dealing with life very well.
