ooh valentine!

I know it's a load of mush, but valentine's day comes around, and you end up doing something at least! I made this embroidered card for Nao, which was a bit hap-hazard! as you can see, but it's the thought that counts right?

Nao had been working on these from early this morning. They are vouchers for 1 pint of beer and 1 hour and 5 mins of massage! They even have watermark and everything...they are too good to use, but I will though!

The 'Duchess of Peckham', hilarious! I can't believe he did all this!

Also, I have been doing a bit of makeover to some not very nice bits of furniture in our flat. As we are moving soon, I thought I'd go for a new clean white look. Sorry I didn't take pictures of these before I painted them, you-ll just have to take my word for it!

I found this wrapping paper in the shop nearby, I thought it might brighten it up a bit. We keep our vintage tea cups in this cupboard (it was previously dark brown with mouldy paper behind).

Hope you are all feeling suitable romantic today, or just having a nice day with chocolate...mmm chocolate why did I have to mention that!!...now I'm going to the shop!


  1. Both gifts are lovely. Can't decide which one I like best.
    The little cupboard is so sweet.
    Have a very happy Valentine's Day. xx

  2. Hi - I've just discovered your blog - it's lovely and I think a voucher for a pint is one of the best valentine's presents. Great idea!
