Dr Martens Factory Shop : LOVE!

Now we might live out in the sticks where the sheep are loud and the internet isn't great, but we do live near the Dr Martens Factory Shop!

We're regular visitors, it's like a traditional family day out for us and whilst I was working away today, Yan & Betty went shopping..... and didn't they do well?!

Pink Dr Martens Clemency Boots
Pink Dr Martens Clemency Boots £30 (RRP: £115)
For me, a pair of Clemency Boots. I don't have any with this heel, so a new style for my collection.

Dr Martens Aggy Bow Sandal
Dr Martens Aggy Bow Sandals £20! (RRP £120)
For Betty a pair of the lush Aggy Deyn Bow sandals. I bought Biba a pair of when they first came out and they didn't cost me £20!

Dr Martens X Comme des Garçons Sandals
Dr Martens X Comme des Garcons Mens Sandals
For Yan these fab Comme collaboration sandals. I can't find them online but today they were £20!

Not a bad shopping trip I'd say.

My Awesome Camera Cozy

Thank you to everyone that shared my post last week. Your generous tweeting led me to find the rather wonderful @missybsleeping and now, less than a week later, I'm the proud owner of my very own Doggy Camera Cozy!

Only now Biba wants one too!

Crochet Camera Cozy : Assistance Needed

I can't crochet and I can't knit. Unless I'm attempting to make triangular bunting or something, because everything I attend ends up being triangular.
I can't concentrate and it seems I can't count either because I'm very good at picking up extra stitches from somewhere.
It's not that I haven't tried. I promise you I have but my mum was the knitter and whenever I needed something - she turned her magic.

But now I don't have my mum to ask and since the Photojojo newsletter landed in my inbox last week, I have been hankering after this really cute doggy crochet camera cosy.

And I need your help to make it happen! I've purchased the pattern and I will buy all of the materials needed. I just need the magic of someone who is nimble and able with a crochet hook to make it into reality for me.
