Easter Delights

Happy Easter weekend everyone! I'm glad to say that the cold weather has just arrived and therefore this Easter will be as cosy and lovely as ever! Yay! Here are a few things I am looking forward to doing in my Easter break..

         + Finally start finishing up this blanket and get a whole lot of my new blanket done!
         + Make myself a pretty dress out of some lovely floral fabric I found at an op-shop the other day.
         + Go to the Harvest Farmers Market on Saturday morning.
         + Eat lots of chocolate and sweet treats!
         + Go for a road trip with Matt to Deloraine (if he is not to busy with work!).

Hope you all have a lovely and relaxing Easter break! xx

Element Eden 'Knit Off' Pack

This winter, Element Eden (one of my all time favourite clothing brands!), is hosting an amazing 'knit off' competition on their Facebook Page! The competition encourages everyone to pick up some knitting needles and get into some winter crafts for a chance to win a new Element Eden wardrobe and a years supply of Cleckheaton yarn! I was lucky enough to be sent an Element Eden 'knit off' pack to help me get started and I am smitten with it! The pack includes everything you need to get started... including wool, patterns and even some cute Element Eden knitting needles. So excited to enter some of my winter crochet patterns soon! xx

Caravan Love

Yesterday My Mum Bought a copy of My Cool Caravan, a book full of the most adorable vintage inspired caravans! I have always loved caravans and it has been a dream of mine for a while now to buy a tiny little caravan and fix it up and make it look pretty. Here are some lovely caravans that I found through Pinterest today. xx

February Snaps

I am continually amazed at how quickly 2013 is flying by... two months have gone already! I'm very happy to say that I really made the most of February. Enjoying the last bit of summer at the beach with friends and relaxing during my last few weeks of freedom (uni has officially started for the year!). Here are a few snaps of what I got up to in February...

1. Collected some good reads for a week away at the beach.
2. Treated myself to a stunning new craft book.
3. Had a very successful op-shopping trip.
4. Was given some amazing vintage lace collars and had a lot of fun attaching them to some of my favourite dresses. 
5. Spent some time filling the pages of my journal.
6. Wore cute summer outfits. 

Feel free to follow me on instagram, just search for the username @greylace. xx

Element Eden Winter 2013

The first day of Autumn is officially here in Australia! As you may know, autumn is my favourite season... I just love it when it starts to cool down and everything becomes so beautiful and cosy. The pictures above are from Element Edens 2013 winter lookbook. Element Eden is one of my favourite brands and they do such an amazing job at styling their lookbooks. This one makes me so excited to start sipping tea and crocheting in front of the fire! I have also seen a pattern for those cute little kitten mittens and might even try to make my own pair this winter!
