The sun just keeps on shining here in Sheffield. It's been unseasonably warm these past few weeks - I think they call it an Indian summer. Either way, we're loving it! The collection of brass on my windowsill is looking lovely - I'm enjoying watching it grow, especially because it's for such a special reason (they're for the wedding). I'm also working on a few Christmas projects - yes I'm starting early this year in the hope I'll not make myself too stressed nearer the time. Above is my little corner where I work away whilst watching my rubbish TV programmes and snuggling with Betty. I think I'll go do some more of that now...

Sorry it's still been a little quiet around here - I'm having some issues with my photo editing software. I know I should just get over it and post anyway, but I like to share my best if I can and I'm more comfortable editing pictures before I put them out on this bit of the internet I have going on here. I'll admit, I've shouted at my laptop a few times now and it's probably just retaliating. I hate technology sometimes... grr!
Anyway, whilst I try and fix my issues (and calm my temper) please enjoy this short girly fashion-y film.

I've said it before, but I feel so lucky sometimes to live where I do. Sheffield is the city of steel and greenery. So many contrasts... the industrial and the rural. It really is the best of both worlds. Depending on my mood I can walk the city concrete taking in the noise and the colours, or walk through the parks with Betty by my side breathing the fresh air and feeling the grass below my feet.
Yep, even Mr. Attenborough is a fan of the steel city! This is just one of many impressive street art spots in Sheffield. I'm forever stumbling across new treasures, but this one is definitely a favourite.
Where concrete and nature coexist...
And when I need some peace I head over to the Botanical Gardens... a stones throw away from our flat. With Betty in tow of course!
The hours I've spent here... listening to the birds, taking pictures of all the different flowers and trees, laying on the grass with a book or a new crochet project. It's also Betty's favourite walking spot. Because it's so nearby I get to walk around here each morning and I never take for granted how lucky I am to have this beautiful space at my fingertips.
There is so much charm about this city. It has a rich history and a promising future. Whether you're looking for live music, vintage shopping, locally sourced food or a walk in the hills, Sheffield has it all. There is just so much to share about Sheffield. I feel this is just the beginning.
