is it that time again! every week i promise myself that i will update my blog with something interesting in between my friday folksy window shopping excursions but yet again the week has whizzed by and i haven't managed it. i would like to say it is because of this lovely cliche.... so much to do; so little time.....but in reality it is this....so much to do; too disorganised/but for now there is some window shopping to do. I couldn't decide on a theme this week so i'm using a quote instead by the wonderful william morris.
easily distracted doing research on the interweb/ chatting networking/ etc etc you get the idea. some of the posts i have in mind are these; quilts in progress plus new vintage quilts just arrived from the states. the story of flo. whats in my wip box(es). recent adventures with little ed. i will try my hardest to do one this week.
"have nothing in your house that you do not know to useful, or believe to be beautiful"
i so wish i could live by this completely but some things are not so easy....such as the growing collection of decorative salt and pepper sets/china thimbles/i heart (insert holiday destination) eggcups that we keep receiving. i know these to be neither beautiful or useful! i can only break sooo many and did manage to 'lose' a whole box of these lovely items in the last house move....but still they keep coming.
enough rambling, here is my selection for this week.

useful and beautiful
useful plus beautiful because it incorporates my love of old tins and all things green
so beautiful and with 50% from each sale going to help people in japan it is definitely useful.
beautiful and useful
too beautiful to put things in but useful as inspiration
once again useful and beautiful. mr morris knew what he was talking about....
just beautiful...been coveting this for a while
and i think i'll end with another quote by william morris
"the true secret of happiness lies in taking a genuine interest in all details of daily life"
