Welcome to my blog! I am Nan, the human component of this blog. B.A.G.S. (a.k.a. AINE) is my pug. This blog will notate musings, muses and British inspired goodies with an American twist. I own The Portobello Road Shoppe located at theportobellord.etsy.com. My specialties are: sewing, stitching, paper crafting and felting. Oh, and the occasional nummy brownies.
Let's do a quiz - what goes TICK TICK TICK in my house?
C) my phone
d) my fridge.
I am sure you guessed my clock right? WRONG. IT IS MY FRIDGE!!! Oh my goodness I have been going just batty with the ticking hence I have been doing anything to block out the noise. Luckily the repair person is coming tomorrow. And yes, my fridge is relatively new. GERR.
I have been going a little bit crazy with the sewing lately due to being obsessed with blocking out the noise. I am working every minute I can on my Halloween Quilt. I am very behind at this moment. So my mom gave me some See's Candy to keep me going - or save for a crop - which ever came first. :)<
I have also found some really cool magazines as well.
Ottobre from Finland. It has uber cool patterns and sizes that are very modern. Quite excited about trying some items in here
Stitch and Studios...love the Japan article and the Studios is very inspirational.
Living Craft. This magazine is so cool. It is all about Natural Fiber. LOVE.IT.
And I think I need to subscribe to this Magazine. Home and Antiques from the UK and is based on the Antiques Roadshow. *LOVE*
Oh and lookie what I have here.... NEW MOON PORN! *squee*
I love the fact that they dressed him up in an Edwardian Coat and that he is from the Edwardian time and of course his name is EDWARD. LMAO.
and I had to post this one.
So what does Aine think.... yep. Mummy crazy with the paper goods and sewing.
....And that is interior designer! Picking out lights is hard ya all! I picked two and I am still deciding if I like them. I think they will stay because I can't look at another light!
I also got the fixtures(Anthro hooks, yep no bars mom!), facet(matches the shower) and paint! All for this is needed for deadline day Tuesday-yeeehaw!
So help me pick out which blue I want -- this is so hard ya all! I like them all. Ugh
