I love when people find some old vintage goods in their homes and give them on to me. I love having the reputation of looking after things and cherishing them. (hoarding, ahem). And I am always so thankful to have them to add to my collection. So when I got a bag of napkins, tablecloths and aprons I was squealing with joy! I should probably sell them on like a savvy business woman. But I am a softy and can’t seem to distinguish between the blurred line of personal items and business items. So for now, I will love them always. And maybe tomorrow, I might sell them. (don’t count on it!). x
Exciting news! I am so proud to announce that Messyla is featured in a one-off Wedding special for Mollie Makes. I have been waiting patiently to spill these beans for about a month now and thankfully it is time to show you and tell you all about it.
If you have been following my blog for a while now you will know that in August 2012 I designed and created my sister and brother-in-law’s wedding in our country garden. Everything was a little bit vintage and a little bit country with my handmade invites and decorations, vintage china and fresh cut flowers in little tin cans. (+ so much more!).
It was a joyous wedding season and when the opportunity came to show my Messyla Wedding accessories in Mollie Makes, I squealed and jumped around. (for a few weeks.)
I am so thankful to the Mollie Makes team for such a wonderful feature and hope that if you are having a wedding in the future that you will consider Messyla for your handmade, vintage touches!

Hi everyone! What do you think of my website re-design? I hadn’t changed the layout and style of my blog for about 8 months and I felt it was time for a change. Spring cleaning. I also knew I wanted to incorporate one of my makes into the website header and currently the Twiggy Wreaths are my favourite item in the shop. I renewed all the information in the About Us, Contact Us and Stockists page too! (Use the overhead tabs.. Eep!). Overall it was a day for square eyes as I sat by the computer screen making graphics and deciphering whether words like “Welcome” were real words after I had typed them so often.
I now feel fresh and tidy online and offline. So hopefully this spurs some extreme productivity as I fill my Online Shop with goods. I am getting closer to a deadline I set for myself to have this all complete.. so it’s off to work I go.
Enjoy your day.x
Getting organised. Catching up with some Spring orders. Finishing off a new crochet cushion. Filling my “new” sideboard with all my stationary and office materials. Listing some new items and some craft supplies I am selling..xxx
Phew! Friday is here, in another flash, and there has been lots of items added to the shop today too. My plan is to add as much as I can to freshen up for Spring and Summer. I have so many new cards and gifts (and some favourite oldies too!) to add, so bear with me whilst I get through all the photo editing and listing. It’s such a time consuming process! But I love when my shop is nice and full – grabbing a cuppa and marvelling at my hard work! I hope you all have lovely weekend plans..x
To my lovely Mum. Who is always there for me, who teaches me all her wonderful skills and who is my best friend. x
