I’m packing up this little blog and moving it over to Tumblr.

I love WordPress but I just needed a simpler way of blogging and so have decided to give Tumblr a go. You can find me at http://gracemakes.tumblr.com/ .

Hope you make the leap with me, see you on the other side!

Hello everyone! Hope you all had lovely weekends, the Boy and I went to Totnes and Dartmouth for a wander, a cream tea and charity shop bargains.

This week is turning out to be an inspirational one.

I thought I’d share with you my five favourite blogs. This idea is shamelessly stolen from the lovely Fiona over at The corner of the internet I call home, who wrote a top seven list a while ago.

These blogs are the ones I enjoy reading, sometimes commenting on but definitely ‘oohing’ and ‘ahhing’ over them.

Without further ado, and in no particular order, I give you, my top five… Continue reading
