Thursday Treats is my absolute favourite post to put together and as I write this a few days early (yes I love it that much) am sat here with two teeny kitties snoozing on my desk! Oh yes, the Williams’ have kitteeeeens! I am SO FRIGGIN’ excited. They are Maine Coons so are going to be ginormous but right now let’s enjoy the cute. Let me introduce, Rachel –
I’m ever so beautiful but still a little shy – Williams and Henry – I like to explore everything & the other day I nearly climbed up the chimney – Williams

♥ This week I was asked by 16 year old writer and blogger Rachel Phipps if I’d be interviewed for
her website. Hell to the yes I would! Head over to her site, Waste my Life Pretending, to read the full article. I particularly enjoyed answering the question ‘What’s in your bag right now?’ answer – ‘ a hell lot of crap it would seem!’

♥ UK artist Gemma Hadley of Apostle Art does fabulous mixed media work and offers a wide variety of commissions that can be adapted to create you something very personal. How about a piece of art depicting your favourite engagement or wedding image to hang on your wall? “ I do my art based on wedding photos (ie I did one of a couple doing their first dance)” Gemma told me “ or I can base it on a photo of their time before marriage. I can adapt wedding photos using acrylic, beeswax, paint or whatever the client might want. Much of my work is figurative and experimental, but when I do a commission I like to do paintings for couples, I love the fact it’s more of an ‘artifact’ – something that preserves the memory for life with daubs of acrylic and painterly energy.
Yes, yes, yes I want one!

Those who follow me on Twitter and Facebook will know I've had a rough few days of late. I've been letting things (or should I say certain people!) get to me and it must stop! Arrgh... so I apologise for that right now. However, in a much more positive vein, I am very excited to get going with this week's Thursday Treats as it always cheers me to share such internet wonderfulness with you all, my dear readers and loyal fans 😛
♥ First off - erm..hello? How fabulous are the photos at the top of this post? It was taken by the amazingly fun, cool, quirky and chatty Leah McCormick who I was lucky enough to meet on a cold day in London just before Christmas. I took her for a walk around Soho and down Carnaby Street where she went nuts over the Christmas decorations. Well they are pretty gorgeous aren't they?
♥ 10 of the weirdest wedding invitations - I think they're all pretty damn cool actually!
