Friday I'm in love… with love

19 Jun


Via fffound

So I’m back from Norway, where I had a stupendously good time (will show you some pics soon), my red Bobbin Glorie has arrived (ooh she’s so pretty!), I’m gearing up for the Moonwalk on Saturday (followed by seeing Take That on the Sunday!) and all in all I’m feeling really happy… and loved up. Which is strange when you’ve been in a relationship as long as me and the other half have but good strange… So I thought I’d pass on the love (and an award) since it’s a Friday and you’re all so lovely ๐Ÿ™‚

1. Simplify our love tile from Rob Ryan
I love this gorgeous tile from very talented Rob Ryan… and they’re finally back in stock at his Etsy shop. Yay!


2. Heart Yo-Yos from Somethings Hiding in Here
Love is a little like a yo-yo โ€“ sometimes in love you feel up and sometimes you feel down… And don’t you just love the cross-stitchness (yes a trip to Norway hasn’t cured me of that!)


3. Love Card from Curious Doodles
Love how simple this is… it’s so a ‘I could have made this’ kind of thing. Except I didn’t.


4. We Make Sense via fffound
Even if no-one else understands us…


5. Sampler Love via fffound
Only just realised how many cross-stitch/sampler things are in this post. Anyway, no idea who Helen and Lito are but I think this is so sweet.


6. Every Day I Love You from Rockett St. George (via Poppy Talk)
How romantic is a bit of old wood? Very apparently!


7. You are loved via fffound
Because everyone needs to be told that once in a while.


7. A rather lovely award
Before I went away, Kerry from The Seventy Tree gave me this rather nice award. She has a totally fab blog โ€“ and is a fellow lover of yellow โ€“ so if you haven’t been there before, get over there as it rocks.


And now for the passing on of the award. Here’s some blogs I think are rather lovely too…

Eden Rose
Her Little Place
Lobster and Swan
Little Doodles
Slices of Beauty

Check them out if you haven’t already and have a fab weekend xx

    What a cute post. I love the doily cards and the bit of old wood as you call it!
    And you do deserve that award, well done.

      Aww thanks so much Polly! (And yes I’m sure the designer would be thrilled with my description!!)

    Great post, it is my boyfriend’s birthday soon and I always end up getting him something pretty soppy. I quite like the “we make sense” card. It’s so true!

    Glad to have you back too *claps* – I can’t wait to see Norway. I would love to go up there sometime I’m just not a beach kind of person.

      Thanks Laura โ€“ that makes it nicer to be back โ€“ am missing sunning myself on the deck it has to be said! Will share some pics soon ๐Ÿ™‚

    Oh thank you thank you for the sweet award, I’m going to post it up
    And I *love* this post. I have a little collection of pebble shaped hearts displayed on a cake stand, and I am so pro-cross stitch! I posted on my cross stitch that says “Love” here, if you want to have a look!

    Thanks again for the award, it’s made my Friday morning! xx

    Love that you posted Love! So loving the Rob Ryan piece! (His work makes me swoon) xo

    Lovely things! I have been coveting the Everyday I Love You picture for a while and Rob Ryan is just so fab.

    Can’t wait to see a pic of the bike in the flesh (so to speak)!

    • Conversation Pieces 19/06/2009 at 5:42 PM #

      Hopefully will get a pic of this weekend โ€“ maybe before or after I walk 26 miles (I so just want to play on my bike now this weekend!)

      And I’m now slightly weirded out by the idea of a ‘flesh bike’!!

    I am saving up for that Every Day I Love you picture! I have a spot for it planned – above the bed! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  8. Eden Rose 19/06/2009 at 10:58 PM #

    Mwah, Mwah!! Thank you for loving my blog! That is a huge honour coming from you. I love this post, hearts are beautiful and that ‘we make sense’ is just perfect. x
