Cycling and crafting

In a bit to get fit and slim for the wedding I have being upping my cycling around our village as part of my keep fit routine. My parents brought me my Pashley Princess bike for a combined christmas and birthday present I love her and couldn't resist taking a photo (on my phone as my camera died) of the Pashley in the frost. It looks so quaint! 

After my enjoyable but bloomin' freezing ride home I have stoked up the fire and got on with a bit of wedding crafting...

These luggage style tags are going to be tied onto teacups and used as name places for our wedding breakfast tables. Hopefully they will look pretty and the handache will be worth it from all the fancy writing!

I have sourced tea sets from all over the country over the last year ready for the wedding and to hire out through Vintique Tree, this one shown it the pictures is a delightful carltonware buttercup set I picked up at a antiques fair it the summer, I just love the bright colours!

Anyhoo the weatherman is telling us it is going to be snow doom tomorrow so George is getting prepared...whilst I need to go and get dinner ready!

    1. Thanks Liz, I was so excited when I saw I had a follower! x

  3. Hello! I love this post. I too have just gotten a bike (for xmas) which is very similar but in lilac. It's great for exercise, but so pretty too, right? Speaking of pretty, that tea-set is the prettiest thing :D
