Dear Daisy, It is your first day at school...

A Pinterest addiction

I've always liked making things but never really had the time to do much. The only thing I've done really apart from all the bits for my wedding two years ago is upcycling my furniture for our home. 

I still don't have time to do much it would seem! When Daisy is awake I either want to spend time interacting, cuddling or walking etc with her and when she isn't I tend to have other things that need doing like having a shower!!! (Or hoovering the dog hair carpet up !!) 

However I've found a new love for Pinterest recently and this just encourages me to do some! First up is our garden.. It's a lovely big garden that Ben has worked hard on this year and it's really starting to look lovely, however there's still lots of room for personalising it and making it "lived in". 

This was made from an old piece or greenhouse staging (a pallet would be good!) painted with Sandtex outdoor paint which actually paints on lovely considering it's a gloss. I don't usually have the patience for it, I find gloss gloopy and it takes ages to dry!

We got the brackets and pots from Amazon and then to fill them and make them look pretty. Pretty easy but I love it and think it looks really effective! 

Some other tasks I'm working on (I seem to have too many thinking about it!) are getting the play/ spare room sorted and lovely, finishing some upcycling on furniture in the house and more for the garden. These are some bits I've seen on Pinterest that I love at the moment; 

You can find my boards here.

I am now busy planning a party for Daisy as a bit of a welcoming garden party and am busy doing some crafty bits for this... I'll share when they're complete :) I don't want to give it away just yet! Those who know me personally will already guess it's vintage themed! 

Other than Pinterest does anyone use anywhere else for inspiration?

Lots of love,
Hayley xxx


  1. Hayley I LOVE your plant pallet thingy (can't think of a better name for it?), now following you on Pinterest too. I'm a bit guilty of pinning lots of crafty things and then never making them but you've inspired to maybe try and make some things. :) You're party sounds exciting, can't wait to hear all about it! (Jasmine wants to go!) xx

    1. I don't know what to call it either?!?! That sounds good to me!

      I'm the same honestly, very rare I actually do anything from Pinterest but I have thousands if ideas!!

      I found you on there too now! Xx
