After a big week in the Wilde Asher studio working on our upcoming collections for Autumn, searching, sourcing, planning and making, I was delighted that the rainy weather suited my weekend idea to spend time pottering, crafting, movie watching and re-energising for more exciting and busy weeks ahead.
Saturday.. Ben had some work to finish off, so I enjoyed some time pottering through my grandmother's treasures and finding spots for some favourite pieces. Also on the to do list, a spot of colourful crochet and plenty of rainy day film watching.
One of my favourite platters.. Such a sweet mix of floral and art deco styles.
Crocheting in fruit tingle colours makes me happy on rainy weekends..
Sunday.. The overcast morning called for pancakes and lady grey tea, followed by a quick trip to Bunnings for some crafting supplies and a few new herbs, with a fortuitous stop for a sweet vintage treasure on the way. After some garden crafting (currently one of my favourite weekend past times) we took Jack out to the beach for a lovely afternoon wander and fossick.
Sunday pancakes and a cute weekend find..
A quiet gardening kind of crafternoon.. Just love this little tea pack of herbs and with a few coats of paint and a nautical theme, my stash of recycled tins were transformed into fun planters for my little balcony style garden.
Jack enjoying the perfect kind of dog afternoon at Sandgate. Being a dog who grew up in the country, he had never seen the ocean, so it was quite a treat indeed!
What did you get up to this weekend? Did you watch any good films? I watched The Words and The Great Gatsby (circa 1974) and enjoyed them both.
