All of the lights

I know Christmas is over but can I just post this? It’s so lovely and I just want to show you before I post up posts about the new year and go completely off Xmas. It’s a Christmas lights display. The money donated goes towards the children’s ward at Lewisham Hospital. They do it every year and can you believe (because I can) each day costs them £10 in electric bill! It’s all good if it’s all for good right?

Here it is, like a bright festive wonderland.

Who knew Ronald was so festive.

Well that’s it and I’m sure my next year of bringing you crafts, cupcakes and vintage clothing will be better. It’s all about growth because I am not starting another blog!

Hope you had a lovely Christmas/holiday!

Christmas at Lele’s

Merry Christmas my beautiful readers!

Christmas is never like how I imagined it’ll be such as me not getting what I asked for for Christmas presents and me cleaning as well as being a kitchen helper to mum however the food remains the same as always. Delicious!

I wasn’t in the spirt of Xmas on the eve of and I could feel myself running outta more spirt and so I mixed a few sprits to make myself a made up cocktail to cheer my stupid grumpy self up. Never drink whilst your down or handling sharp and or heavy things, it’s not safe…I should know. I called my cocktail The Dirty Dish Water cocktail which was a mix of white wine, white rum, brandy, cranberry juice, OJ with the bits and cola for the dark dishy look finished with orange and lemon slices shaken and served with ice…not too shabby if I say so myself.

Pattern of the Week!: The Decade Dress

1940’s/1950’s of course and I havent done a POTW in a very long time and as I’m sewing away in a shop in my little corner I thought why not take a selfie of my almost finished garment and show you!

I'm loving this pattern and it's not difficult either. I think Butterick is my fav because the instrutions are easy to follow and the designs are so great. So much to choose from! Here's my very poor selfie just to show you what I'm working with at the moment.

Trendin’ Tuesdays: Shiny Onions

Meaning bold costume gems with the layering techique (clothing not cake…you might of not been thinking of cake but when I said “layering” in my head I instantly heard “then buttercream then layer then buttercream”…and now I’m hungry for something sweet)…anywhopla!

It’s cold and it’s getting harder to not look like your a breaking down machine in the weather where’re in (I’m in London, England and if you’re in a hot country then Go Away! OR come over with the sun. I speak on behalf of all follow Brits when I say we won’t BF about the heat EVER AGAIN!

)
Yeah so as I was saying shiny onion! Get your jumbo jewels and layer it up with vests, shirts and jumpers! When you’re finished you’ll be the trendiest and the warmest shiny onion this winter!

Happy Holidays and Trendin!
