Wild West KitNip Box
Bobbin's been signed up for a four month subscription to KitNip Box and her first box arrived this morning. She couldn't wait to get stuck in, and after lots of chewing and clawing at the box, we ...
Japan Centre
We headed into town after work today and grabbed dinner at the newly relocated Japan Centre. The new shop has a cafe, so you can eat in, and lots of the dishes had been reduced, so we picked up a ...
Beatrice Blue
Beatrice Blue illustrated this kick ass Crafterella for Superhero Sunday this week.
Dead Dolls House
We picked up some super cute unicorn cookies when we were in the Selfridges food court last night. They cut their prices just before closing which is a good thing to know when you're nearby.
Word On The Water
Even though we still had the flu, our cabin fever had kicked in, so we headed up to Kings Cross for a walk. We stopped off at VX to have some vegan junk food for lunch. All the food sounded amazi...
I was hoping to have a Burns Supper for my friends tonight but we're still too sick, so I celebrated by 3D printing a little Greyfriars Bobby instead. I've glued it to one of the jars in the bathr...
Fiesta Siesta
Not wanting to let my flu get in the way of my crafting, I've been playing around with my 3D printer and made a sugar skull pot for my hair bobbles and decorated it with my 3D scribbler pen. It ma...
Tom ordered a custom Coolicon lampshade to go above our little table upstairs. I love the teal colour and it's got a vintage tube map printed on the inside, giving you something to look at when yo...
Clapham South Deep Level Shelters
There was snow in the air as we made our way to Clapham South to meet up with the Hidden London team for a tour of the deep level air raid shelter. There are eight deep-level air-raid shelters bui...
W Hotel
This weekend is Lumiere London, a light festival where dozens of areas of the city have been lit up with sculptures and installations. The first installation we spotted was at Trafalgar Square whi...
Essex Road
Tom's picked himself up another London Underground sign for the house, this time a 1930's sign from Essex Road which used to be on the underground until it was transferred to British Rail in the 70...
Le Shuttle
When we were in Bristol, years and years ago, Tom spotted this Le Shuttle train teapot in the window of a closed charity shop and Jenny tried to get it for him the next day but it had already sold.
We met up with Jenny & Rin for dinner in St Paul's this evening. Yo Sushi! have a big sale for January, so we feasted on as much sushi as we could eat. We tried some of the new espresso mochi...
I got Tom some Wonderground placemats and coasters from LORIS&LIVIA for Christmas. They're made from the flooring of the Piccadilly and Victoria line tube trains and I love the design.
Burnt Toast Cafe
We went for breakfast at the Burnt Toast Cafe in Brixton Village this morning. The cafe is tiny with just a few seats outside, but the queue was long, so we knew it would be good. There were toas...
The Brits Are Coming
Tom got tickets to The Brits Are Coming at the ITV Studio this evening. It's the show where they announce the nominees for The Brit Awards and there were performances from lots of people I didn't k...
Sir Crafty
I was interviewed about crafting and Cut Out + Keep for Sir Crafty and you can read the whole interview here.
Duvet Day
Bobbin and I were both in need of a duvet day today. Luckily the new Routemaster blanket which we'd picked up in the London Transport Museum sale had arrived and it's super cosy. It was also the ...
Embossing Hut
We took my new satchel to be embossed at The Cambridge Satchel Company shop in Covent Garden this evening. They've got an Embossing Hut downstairs in the store and you can see examples of all the ...
Sometimes it feels like we live in a tube station, especially when Tom gets massive underground signs in the mail. This morning, he got a Waterloo station sign from the Northern Line and it's huge.
Rail House Cafe
I love wandering around London on Sunday mornings. It's usually really quiet, so it's ideal for exploring and taking photos. We were at Westminster this morning and wandered up to Victoria, an are...
Lego Diner
It may have taken three days to build but we finally completed the Lego Diner. I think this is my favourite set so far, with it's adorable diner booths, jukebox and waitress on roller skates.
Another exciting gift Tom had put in my stocking was this gorgeous pot of Welsh Rarebit from Fortnum & Mason. We tried some for lunch today and it was delicious. I'm going to keep the pot when...
The weather was really stormy today, so I decided to hide away in the kitchen and bake some banana bread. Check out Walnut & Dark Chocolate Banana Bread on Cut Out + Keep
Ugly Dumpling
It's become a bit of a New Years tradition to treat myself to a new satchel and when I spotted this gorgeous teal bag in the Cambridge Satchel Company sale, I had to have it. This one has magnetic...
I'm really going to miss watching The Shard sparkling from our window at nighttime in the run up to Christmas. I woke up early enough to see it at sunrise this morning and it looked too pretty to ...
It's a new year, but Bobbin is as cute as every and woke up looking extra fluffy after our hogmanay celebrations with Katie & Phil last night. I decided to kick 2018 off with a splash and make...
