Miss Allsopp I salute you

I must admit I had a little crush on this program the first time around, however this year I have whole heartedly fallen head over heels.

You know you are a ‘tad’ obsessed, when you’re dreaming about meeting Kirstie Allsopp in your sleep.



Be it the very opening title sequence that screams out to any budding crafter or the flamboyant wardrobe of Miss Allsopp herself. That woman has a style all of her own. Mostly consisting of vintage I imagine. I am particularly admiring the giant aquamarine (engagement) ring the most...



My favourite craft of the series has to be the cross-stitch cushions master class with Emily Peacock. The embroidery equally thrilled me, as it’s always been a craft close to my heart.




I have religiously admired week after week, and become enthralled in all the tips and tricks along the way. Equally I was smitten with Kirstie and Phil’s Perfect Christmas, it was festive and fun and all the crafty ideas and beautiful aesthetics easily charmed me.



Thank-you Kirstie for a wonderful series and more so a wonderful way of life♥

  9. Thanks for the lovely blog comment. I love Kirstie's ring too. The size of it! I'd quite like to raid her wardrobe aswell. and the best bit is she looks like she enjoys a good meal rather than sticking to carrot sticks and seeds x

  10. Although I initially loved this series and everything in it, I have become increasingly irritated by Miss Allsops insatiable enjoyment of every single craft she undertakes. Surely every single one of them cannot be the absolute best thing she has ever done ever!?

  12. Aaah I hate to say it but KA inexplicably annoys me! I do however love her Location Location Location counterpart, and if her tastes are as beautiful as those pillows (Christmas list much?!) perhaps I could grow to like her :) jazzy ♥
