Friday Future Favourite Blogs

Every Friday, I'm going to let you in on my most favourite blogs and why I read them. I promise not to feed you any that aren't top quality!

1. Casey's Elegant Musings: Who can resist a stylish lady with a penchant for 40's fashion? Casey Brown thirifts, sews and accessorises her wardrobe into a stunning visual display of the glamorous lifestyle of the Roaring Forties. Check it out for a dose of pretty dresses, easy-peasy and pleasing tutorials and scans from vintage mags and catalogues. Absolutely fabulous!

2. Humblebeads Blog: Handmade beads by Heather Powers and ways to use them. Heather's amazing beads are little works of art. She gives helpful tips too like how to make some pretty hairpins.

3. All About Papercutting: This is one amazingly talented lady! Her name is Elsita and her blog is all about the amazingly time-consuming and delicate art of Papercutting. Her work is three dimensional and the subject matter, while sometimes jarring, is poignant and thought-provoking. She also has some beginner's kits to buy in her Etsy shop from time to time if you fancy trying your hand. Don't miss this blog, it's a continual source of joy for me!

Hope you find some inspiration in these blogs, I know they really give me a lot to think about each day.

Much Love
