Summer Wishes

Intimation of Dew {HouseofSixCats} Wish {thegardenshed}

Blow a Wish {naomilevit} Make A Wish {SimplyLodge}

Make a wish!
These little ones remind me of summer... lying on the grass and making wishes.
The summer feels like it is finally here... after a long long winter.

Grab a picnic, and enjoy the sunshine and make a wish!

Eteaket - Edinburgh

Eteaket, is my early morning treat, 3 mornings a week... I'd go 7 if I could get away with it.
I love the place! If you have ever been, you'll know why!

It is a fantastic little tea boutique in Edinburgh.
They have one of the biggest ranges of tea (coffee too) you'll find, which the staff have an amazing knowledge on.. so you'll always get the best one...
with one of my favourites being Rooibos Creme Caramel!
All the tea comes in a awesome little pot, served with proper little teacups.... and saucers!
Not to mention the individual timers so it tastes just right.

If you haven't had a chance to pop in recently, or ever, then have a little trip in soon!
Have a yummy little cuppa, and a cupcake.. they are BEAUTIFUL!!

Tuesday Afternoon Tea

Yes, I am aware its Wednesday, but I loved this little shop so much, I had to share it!

I love simple little stitchings, and these made me smile.
I love the polka fabric, and the fonts to go with it....
There are a lot of little lovelies to be seen in her Etsy store,
so have a little wander over... Tuesday Afternoon Tea

Little Breaks

We are off on a little break before we have the baby.
We have a few people to visit, a few lunches to have and a few things to buy.
We kept aside a few pennies to get some things for the baby room, and I cant wait to get them!

So... I thought I would leave you with this stunning image from HeyZee.
Have a lovely weekend, and I promise to report back as soon as I can with some lovelies!

You make me happy...

......when skies are grey!

These would surely brighten any wall on a grey day, especially with our weather lately.
Each one is so pretty, I don't think I could decide which to hang on my wall!
They would make a great house warming gift...

nest {mistybliss}

I think my nesting instincts are taking over..
I have a bursting energy to find that perfect 'little' thing for the baby room. and most of the house if I am honest, I like shopping!
Its all the personal, well thought details that make it unique, and well... perfect.

alphabet {lovemaestore}

I have found so many things that I need to have....
Wall decals seem to be one of them, I want them in all the rooms.
I love all things bright and colourful, and how can you say no to these?

little house village {the little red door}

How adorable are these little houses?!
Neatly lined along a little shelf, or over the top of a doorway... the family name would look perfect in these too!

wooden star house tree {urastarhouse}

I seen these and fell in love... a great little room addition, or a great little gift.
And the best part?
You can order a little one custom made, for your custom little self!

Which always gives me an instant smile. They brighten up any room, or garden, or event and who wouldn't want to look at these everyday?!

Fantastic little addition to a little room!

Hello Sweetie Notecard: {gramkinpaperstudio}

And welcome to Raspberry Thistle!

A new blog to showcase some great talent and work that is out there. I decided to start this blog, due to a few factors, one being that I am soon to go on maternity leave, so wanted to use my time productively and show others a lot of my favourite things!

RT is currently a work in progress, but hopefully, with some of the best talent out there, it will soon be blooming with ideas, freebies, fun and awesomeness!

If you would like to be featured, or know someone or something that should be, then email us here:

Have a wonderful monday!
