Christmas 2012

Another year another christmas holiday!

Since I haven’t blogged in almost 10 months (seriously a bad blogger….) I figured now would be a good time to start again with it being a new year.

Christmas is always spent at home, surrounded by family and friends. I’ve just hit the big 2-5 which means being a ‘grown up’ in the real word, although Santa still knows how to spoil me 🙂

I got a great selection of books (which ill post about later!), shoes, bits and pieces and my favourite thing…a new camera! So armed with my new camera expect a lot of new photo posts!

My second favourite things…..Lego stormtrooper alarm clock!

Anyway I hope you all had a lovely christmas holiday and I shall return soon with new posts and some better photos!














Samye Ling – Tibetan Buddhist Centre

Yet again I’ve been completely distracted from blogging! Alongside work, blogging and general life I’m studying a web development course! It’s coming into the final stages now do is getting quite intense.
That and the fact I can’t help but work on a little side project I’ve got going – Erica’s Imagination

Feel free to have a little peek if you haven’t already!

Mothers day was almost a week ago now (time is flying) and I spent it with my nana. We picked her up mid morning and whisked her away to Samye Lings. If you have never heard of Samye Ling, it is situated in Eskdalemuir in South West Scotland, 15 miles from Lockerbie. Continue reading

I’ve Been A Little Distracted Lately…

Ok I appologise! After all of the excitement last week of being nominated for the Kreativ Blogger Award I have fallen off the blogging wagon this week.

With work, family and bits and pieces cropping up I haven’t had time to even watch my beloved Big Bang Theory let along be creative with my blogging!

Well I thought I would share one little thing i’ve been up too….


Yep….thats what has kept me so busy! If you are on instagram you can follow our exploits here:@ericasdoodles

First signs of spring

Hurray – Spring is almost here!

No more chilly nights or rain/snow/sleet filled mornings, no more going about in wellington boots and no more scraping my windscreen on a morning basis.

With the weather being so lovely this today, we ventured out to a local tarn.

I have been entrusted with the cutest (in my opinion anyway!) dog known to man for a couple of days so it was a chance to tire him out with a long walk for him and a chance for me to bask in the morning sun shine.

Heres a few photos from our walk (Only a few – I took over 150!!).

The Hunger Games – Another wallpaper attempt!

Another attempt at photoshop, im pretty pleased with this even if I do say so myself!

Hope you enjoy it – the only photo I used that is mine is of the trees, all other images are official Katniss and Peeta images.

If you haven’t already you can read my Hunger Games, Catching Fire and Mockingjay  reviews here 🙂

Antique and Collectables Emporium!

Last weekend (its taken a while to be able to sit and write this!) I ventured out to an Antiques and Collectables Emporium. Needless to say, I was excited about going!

Unfortunately I didn’t come away with anything. Heres a few photos from our trip –

Im seeing so many delightful typewriters at the moment – possibly a sign to invest in one?!

I posted this photo on Instagram a few day ago (Lorna – This was a real treat to rummage through!), I love old crockery! Im trying to put together a collection of old patterns and designs, rather than buying a plain matching set! So far its not going too well – im getting a little too picky about patterns!

Little old tins like this are so useful! I have quite a few already so held back on getting some more. I currently put bits and pieces, such as hair pins and make up, in the ones I have now.

What a great design! You just dont see patterns like this now.

I spotted these fantastic playboy plates and immediately thought of the amazing writer behind I Want To Be A Pin-Up! (Please check her out if you haven’t already!)
