Loving lately { links, tips and inspiration! }

I don't know about you, but I love Penny Dreadful's vintage tips, tutorials and links round-ups; they are a wonderful way to end a week! So, inspired by her comprehensive collection I thought I'd sum up a few things I've found interesting in a post I'm calling "Loving lately".
Let me know what you think and whether you'd like me to make this a regular event!
Plus, please let me know what you are loving lately!
