One Year on…

Hello readers, Jen here….Goodness me, time flies…

Almost a whole year has passed since our last post.
Seb is now a whole year old…a real little man.

I have moved down the hill to Rodborough, our first beautiful little home.
A red bricked slice of heaven.
I am now a Working Mama and Seb has discovered a love of art.
I am keeping as creative as time allows…
With a little card making and (sporadic) jewellery making –
I alsoam taking part in One little Word 2015 and GetMessyArtjournal workshops…
wow, a busy bee!

Whats new with you?

Shani has been a busy bee, setting up Hampton Cakes

Her beautiful artisan cakes are just fabulous.
She made this amazing Bunny Cake for our little man’s Blessing day.

Some exciting news :)

Here at Made in Minch HQ, we are delighted to announce the safe arrival of Sebastian Ray Taylor born on 22.03.14 (hopefully this explains the lack of blog activity and fashion Fridays!) we are really enjoying newborn life and I was even making jewellery during early labour-that’s dedication!

Our maternity photos were taken by the wonderful Camilla Reynolds http://camillacreativephotography.com/2014/04/02/pregnancy-photo-shoot-gloucestershire-maternity-photography/ way back in January.
It was so much fun!Camilla put us straight at ease, in our most beloved place(The common) and we were lucky with the light beautifully caught on camera forever. We are so pleased to capture such a magical time in our life story!
Just thought you’d like to know! Thanks for your support- Jen and baby Seb x

Fashion Friday : We’re standing in a light that won’t fade.

Hello!
How is your weekend going?
We are basking in the glorious afterglow of another hot day.
Our village definitely comes alive in the summer.

The warm breeze skips over the common and makes for  a beautiful evening walk.
Do you have a “go to” place that calms you after a busy day?
The common is definitely ours!

GOLD FOREVER by The Wanted

We’re standing in a light that won’t fade,
Tomorrow’s coming but this won’t change,
Cause some days stay gold forever.
The memory of being here with you,
Is one I’m gonna take my life through,
Cause some days stay gold forever…

5 6The dress is so easy to wear, light and comfortable.
The neutral base colours of navy, grey,cream and purple really come into play here.
Teaming them with bright coral is a fun twist.
These shoes were a birthday present.
They are incredible, 3 clashing colours,
Pink. Purple, coral… tropical!
These are echoed in the bag and necklace. 7 8 10

Fashion Friday : These Fragments of time

header

Happy Friday everyone!
Greetings from a muggy and sticky Minchinhampton today!
Its been the very best of British “Summertime” weather this week, a little bit of everything.
How is the weather with you?

We are busily making goodies for the Country Fayre in September.
Something to look forward to!
This song has been the soundtrack to our week here at Made in Minch HQ.

“Fragments Of Time”
(feat. Todd Edwards)

Driving this road down to paradise

Letting the sun light into my eyes
Our only plan is to improvise
And it’s crystal clear
That I don’t ever want it to end
If I had my way I would never leave
Keep building these random memories
Turning our days into melodies
But since I can’t stayI’ll just keep playing back
These fragments of time
Everywhere I go 
These moments will shine
This dress will be a firm favourite I think.
Polka dots, a lazy summer colour palette… what more could you want?
I’m more than a little bit in love with these wedge shoes too…
They are just the right height to pair with jeans for a date night,
and look pretty with a dress too.
The necklace is one of my own designs.
I love those prettily decorative bead caps.
