Tuesday Tabs #20

It’s been an eventful week, and once again I’ve semi-failed to keep in touch with you, and if I wasn’t working today, tomorrow and the day after, I would hope to share lots with you. I still do want to do that, I just don’t want to make any promises, although I’m sure I’ll get around to it all at some point.

Did you have a nice Jubilee weekend? Moon and I went down to Devon to stay with his Gran for a couple of days. It was okay, it’s just a pity that the weather wasn’t more on our side, but it was nice to grab a change of scenery. On our way back from Devon, we made a slight de-tour to Portsmouth and had a spot of lunch with Moon’s brother and his girlfriend, Charlotte, before have a peak in Pie & Vinyl, which is just about the most fun idea for a shop. Anyway, I have a more visual method of sharing my adventures with you coming up, as well as a few treasures I picked up along the way, so I won’t say much more.

I suppose that it’s back to reality today, as although it’s still the bank holiday ‘weekend’, certain muggins need to return to work as the masses need to be entertained. I don’t mind so much but the weekend was quite busy so it would have been nice to relax and take stock for one more day.

I really haven’t even got a lot to show you this week as I’ve been either Internetless or working, so I suppose this is just a slightly lazy way of letting you know I have some nice things to come, which I hope I do.


How perfect is this pantry cupboard? My favourite feature is the apple drawer at the bottom.


White Car-Print Prom Dress, £17.99, New Look
I spotted this out in Exeter on Sunday and if it had been my size, I definitely would have snapped it up, sadly it wasn’t meant to be. I do have enough dresses, but this one is so cute, and the fabric is much nicer in real life than you would expect for a standard New Look dress.


‘Social Media’ by Paul Worm, $14.99, Society6
A dilemma I have often found myself in.
Part of a series by Paul Worm entitled, ‘The Worst Thing is…’.


Lipstick Dinosaur
I can’t even begin to describe how sad I am that this is now sold. She always has the nicest, most reasonably priced vintage items though, so I’m hopeful that something else I like will come up.


Narwhal & Pirate-print tights in Turquoise, £17.12, Teja Jamilla
These tights are so beautiful, but I’d be so worried about ruining them I don’t think I’d be able to handle it.


Vintage Telephone, £23.36, Good Merchants
If only I had seen this before we bought our plain (and boring, as well as confusing) Tesco-Value house phone.


‘Can We, Shall We’ Lasercut, £90.11, Mister Rob

Apparently I’m actually quite the semi-fan fo Robyn, and this is both adorable and incredible good, so I really like it.


Link Love:

  • Key Lime Pie Marshmallows — I’m not a huge fan of marshmallows, and the recipe is such a crazy, American one that these would probably be almost impossible to replicate. However, that doesn’t stop me from at least thinking it would be fun to give them a try.
  • Hannah Curson’s 3D Rainbow Cupcakes — Hannah’s blog is one of my favourites, as she post such nice photographs using so many different cameras. Our first connection was through baking though, and this is a fun post showcasing some cakes she’s made, as well as some cakes she’d like to make. I think these are a fair effort, even if Hannah was a bit disappointed.
  • ‘The Silent Evolution’ by MUSA — Images of an underwater sculpture park I researched whilst working on the picture desk of Ink Global. They’re a bit spooky but beautiful in their own way at the same time.
  • Pop Chart Lab Prints — I would love to get myself at least one of these, but there are so many good ones. I think my favourites are The Splendiferous Array of Culinary Tools and A Visual Compendium of Notable Haircuts in Popular Music, both under $30!
  • DIY Tiny Polaroid Magnets — At some point, I need to have a serious update of printed photos as I don’t think, aside from ones for other people and University projects, that I’ve printed any photographs for display in well over a year and a half. This is a fun way to display images and seems relatively easy so definitely something I want to try out.
  • Rachel Bone — Lovely illustration, so happy that we have so much wall space.

  • What a gloomy day, and over the weekend, something the cover of darkness hid from us last night, the lilac tree in our garden has fallen, I have no idea how to deal with this. Stay tuned, I’m going to try and make time for your because I definitely have a few things to share now.
