Happy Saturday to you, here is my final DIY idea for these sweet Mini Glass Milk bottles for DotcomGiftShop. Used as pretty individual place settings or a centre piece for guests to help them selves to, at a tea party or celebration.
Catching up after three days away from my husband, cats, laptop, Pinterest and all my favourite things. So with my tigers by my side I have sought out these four images featuring some candy coloured happiness for your weekend x 1. How to Make a Perfectly Delightful Vanilla Birthday Cake – Sweetapolita. 2. San Francisco [...]
I have spent the last few lovely days away from my laptop and with my mum and sister, and today all alone at home once more, I am having fun styling these super cute Mini Milk bottles in a crate for DotcomGiftShop.
My little old Sony camera has gotten a few more days out lately. And I actually started to remember to take it with me, to places. So here are a few of my favourite pictures from the past couple of weeks. Our apple tree finally burst into blossom and is so pretty. Everything that is [...]
I just discovered a new room. The one outside. With not even a window box to our name, 3 small cacti and only one tiny plant on the verge of death as we left the apartment, I was feeling quite intimidated about taking over such large front and back gardens. All I saw on our two [...]
Midweek quiet time this morning (after a blustery stormy night) found me browsing through all the back issues of the lovely Styled Magazine by Victoria Hudgins of A Subtle Revelry, and I found a few pages I think you will like. All images Styled Magazine.
Today I have been on a bus catching, parcel posting, chocolate gathering (yep I’m all out) mission, now safely back at the lodge I have been looking for interesting things around the blog world. So here are five fun friday finds for the weekend. 1. FIORDILATTE LAVENDER ICE CREAM AND HONEY BRITTLE from The Red [...]
After a weekend of May day sunshine fun in Hastings and Brighton, including too many gin’s and Daiquiri’s with friends, I have spent today at home with my four legged pals. Making piles of lavender bags out of lovely Liberty Fabrics, for the upcoming Summer Time Curiosity Bazaar at the Printworks in Hastings (see the [...]
We have moved house! Now our internet is up and running, I am super happy to be back with you. The move went well and we already love it here, it’s all we hoped for, bad backs and sore hands all round after a morning of filling a lorry in sleet and then an afternoon [...]
When the prettiest book of 2013 arrived in the mail last week, I was so excited, and wow, Selina Lake’s Pretty Pastel Style does not disappoint. It is filled from cover to cover with the loveliest pastel inspired interiors. Modern settings with new ideas and a dash of vintage all mixed in, bringing long neglected pastels [...]

Taking Charlotte’s lead, I am popping in from a crazy couple of weeks to say hi, with a re-cap of how my days are being spent. My page here is a little neglected but with work and the selling and buying of homes in full swing, whenever we get a spare minute we just want [...]
I have been thinking about this wonderful project the last couple of weeks and suddenly realised I had better get my skates on, so I am happy to share that today I made my pledge for a copy of the beautiful book Little Treasures: Made by Hand by Pia Jane Bijkerk. It features over 50 [...]
It may be wishful thinking (what with moving home on the horizon an’all), but I am looking forward to starting March with cheery brights and lots of ideas of fun things to make in time for this years early Easter. With pages packed full of DIY projects Homemaker Magazine is a great place for beautiful [...]
What will you be doing next weekend? I think I will take the walk to St Leonards, (long neglected but believe it or not), the posh end in the past, it seemed everyone put their heart into our Old Town and somewhat forgot about traveling the other way along the promenade. But now it’s community [...]
Introducing my latest blog of the week Elephantine. A peaceful place curated by Seattle based Rachel Ball, who lives with her husband and pets Rufus and Bodhi. A fellow lover of simple, pretty things and also it seems, just as baffled at keeping a house plant alive as me. (I am down to one thirsty looking [...]
How was your weekend? I battled the weather to enjoy two days with my friends, baked cupcakes, had a pub lunch, vintage window shopping and had to duck out of crazy golf as the wind and cloud really was too grim! These bright cheery pictures of our apartment are by Simon Eldon, who visited me [...]
The sun shined long enough on the weekend for a beautiful day trip around the Kent coast, we stopped in Margate, visited the Turner Contemporary, walked the quiet back streets to find the Shell grotto, an amazing underground space patterned with millions of shells, the cool air, dimly lit corridors and glistening walls whispering mystery [...]
Chasing Summer, but not quite getting there this year in old Blighty, we have had so much rain that the hose pipe ban has been lifted so every cloud it seems does have a silver lining. For my sunshine though I have turned (all be it belatedly) to the pages of the Sweet Paul Magazine Summer issue [...]
Only ten more days then I am back to my little seaside town, full time cat amuser, attentive sister/wife and kitchen extraordinaire. I will bake, tidy, make and most of all POST. I am having real fun up here in Soho, but will be so happy to Summer in Hastings. With the odd trip to [...]
Ha! Wrote this a while ago, but in all the mayhem didn’t finish it and just discovered it in my drafts. So, some more pictures from around the house, a winter mood board makes way for a carnival of colours over my mantlepiece to celebrate the return of sunshine, a new (old) pen pot for [...]
