bits and pieces


So this weekend has flown by I thought i would share with you a few glimpses of my weekend, it has been a lovely weekend filled with seeing people and being with my lovely family. I have spent  most of my weekend trying to get my studio into perfect working order again, not to sure if you have all been aware, I haven't really spoken about RubyRaeLove too much recently, I have purposely had a break from the shop, (things are still available to buy) I just haven't been as dedicated to making as I once was, but with the help of friends and family my passion has finally been re-kindled and I have been working on a new collection lots of lovely hand-made, reclaimed items will be popping up soon. So the studio is ready and raring to be messed up again.
I spent the evening writing business plans and proposals for my up-and coming collection. Plus I have a rather cool interview and behind the scenes shoot planned for Tuesday so I had to sort and plan all of that i do love planning. 
Me and mum decided to head out to a carboot sale on saturday so I could scout about for vintage jewellery ready for the new collection, believe me when I say I found some gems i shared a few over on my instagram _ellamasters_ I also snapped up a wonderful pair of boots that I have been trying to hunt down i was going to reluctantly spend £45 on a pair but something stopped me and guess what i found a pair at the carboot for a wonder grand total of £1 you should of seen my face!
I spent Sunday with one of my old university friends who has moved to london to study she popped over mine for a lovely afternoon filled with tea, coffee and family time. The weather has been horrendous so it was lovely to sit drinking tea snuggled under my duvet catching up on life with holly. What have you been upto this weekend?

  1. Sounds like a perfect weekend! I love finding a bargain like that, especially when it's something you've almost spent a lot more money on!
    I've spent my weekend house-hunting and marshaling at a local triathlon, it's been fun :)

  3. Great photos. Your space looks so lovely and inspiring. It's great to hear that you have regained that passion for your beautiful shop.
    I was lucky and had a lot of time this weekend to draw so I spent hours and hours illustrating. I'm a happy camper.

    Have a great start of the week!
