Finding Calm


When I get overwhelmed with all the stuff that needs to be done I find I don't want to do any of it even though logically I know that doing part of it, no matter how small, will help.

Tip of the week! 

With the seasons changing, we tend to go into spring cleaning mode in our lives. Don't leave your blog out of the mix! Take some time to clean up your blog's sidebar this week. Could you stand to remove an item or two? Are all the items on your sidebar useful to your readers? Are there ads slowing your site down? Assess what you're making your visitors see on every page and ask yourself if YOU'D be ok with those items on a site you're visiting.

Rest and Reflect

Black Boy Hill 

Black Boy hill was once covered in the unique plant for which it was named. In 1914 the site was cleared to make a camp for volunteer service men. The site remains a memorial site to our soldiers, planted out with grass trees (black boys) and rosemary for remembrance

Changes To The Regular Schedule

I have so much to share with you I barely even know where to start, from fashion to food, sewing to cleaning, crochet to day-trips. So, I'm going to begin with a personal update.

If you're a regular Purfylle reader you will have noticed a change in the posting schedule from almost every day to only a couple of times a week.

There have been several factors that have contributed to this.

Fashion?


I promised to share with you my wardrobe rebuild this year and showed you my new tank tops, aaaaaand that's about as far as we've got.

This is the long overdue update on my summer wardrobe rebuild.

Lion Around

With my back playing up I've not taken the camera out much and when I have results have not been great so I am dipping into the archives today to bring you this guy who refused to get up from his nap to have a dignified photo taken.

A Pinning Celebration

I have a special pin request today in addition to the pins you're already linking up.

I have begun 2 new Pinterest boards for coasters. If you have ever made coasters, upcycled coasters, decorated or crafted with coasters and bragged about it on your blog please hunt down that pin (or make a new pin if need be) and link your coasters up too. I want to fill my new coaster boards up!

Crochet Cat Coasters

Crochet Cat Coasters #handmadeXmas2016

For the last couple of years I've been doing my best to give handmade gifts for Christmas. This year I've gotten together with some of my favourite blogging friends and together we are making #handmadeXmas2016. Each month we will share a new project to make as a gift.

I made these adorable little coasters as a gift for my cat loving friend last Christmas and I'm so excited I finally get to share them with you!
