The furniture that you have when you don't want any furniture

So we're decorating our new house and the walls are all cream so there is lots of space for us to put things up to inspire and entertain us. I wasn't sure what to get for the wall behind our bed which is a double ensemble and I found these vinyl decal headboards on Etsy. I ordered and it was sent over from the U.S. in no time flat! I got to choose the colour so, you know I had to get purple of course!! and Matt and I put it up on the weekend. So cute and the best thing is that you can just peel it right off if you're bored with it and want to change your decor.

Knitting: Tropical Lily

This top is so cute and it's the best use for Anchor Magicline cotton which I brought a profuse amount of but now have no idea what to do with it. The pattern is Tropical Lily by Georgie Hallam, it's a little halterneck pinafore for a about a 3 or 4 year old. It was fun to knit and I'm putting it away for our little baby. Hopefully I'll get action pics when she's old enough to wear it but, in the meantime you can check out the pattern page if you're interested to see how it's worn.

Knitting: My First Handspun Item

This hat is Urchin a pattern by Ysolda. It is a great pattern and available free on on Ysolda's website. It works perfectly with handspun, especially beginners handspun like mine that is all thick and thin. The small size is pretty small :) so I've put it aside until I find a likely head amongst my friends kids that needs to be kept warm.
