The Pink Baker

Today I am excited to share a new blog with you! It is called The Pink Baker and is run by one of my best friends Coby. Coby is an amazing baker and after a bit of persuasion she has finally decided to start a blog to share some of her creations and I couldn't be more thrilled! If you love baking and really pretty things then you are going to love her blog!

Lovely Vintage Finds

The other day I stumbled across the lovely shop Hello Darling Vintage on Etsy and I am in love! The items in their shop are so unique and the photography is so beautiful. All of these items are all still available and are around the $20 price range... Go and have a look at some of their other lovely goods for yourself!

I wish...

The amazing Finders Keepers Market is on this weekend in Melbourne, and I wish more then anything I could go! It has been a dream of mine to go to The Finders Keepers for a good 2-3 years now, but unfortunately I have not made it to one yet. Above are some pictures of the Frankie stall... This time around they are having a vintage pop up shop, a sweet caravan photo booth, as well as all of their usual pretty Frankie bit and pieces. Melbourne has another Finders Keepers Market during October, and I am definitely going to try and aim to get there!

My Finished Blanket

Over the Easter weekend I finally finished this medallion square crochet blanket that I had been working on for over a year! The pattern is based on an old vintage pattern but I changed it up a bit to make it look like a blanket I saw on-line once. I am really pleased with it, I love the colours and the pattern worked out really well! I have also decided to enter this blanket in the Element Eden Knit Off Competition! Are you entering anything? I would love to see it if you are! You can read about the details here. xx

P.S. I have had a lot of requests for a tutorial of this pattern, if you are interested please let me know and if I have a lot of interest I might give it a go!
