TINY GLASS AND GLITTER WORLDS FOR THE TREE

Old photographs I have been collecting for years have found new homes, inside these tiny glitter and twig decorated glass worlds.

CHRISTMAS MERMAIDS AND RUSSIAN BAUBLES

Hello and happy Monday to you. We had a lovely weekend, in Rye on Saturday and Hastings Old Town on Sunday, soaking up some December sunshine and spoiling ourselves by eating breakfast out two days in a row. We scoured all the antique and junk shops for bedside tables, I found a bargain £7.50 number that […]


JUNK SHOP RESCUE FAIRY TREE TOPPER

JUNK SHOP RESCUE FAIRY TREE TOPPER

I found this little lady in a junk shop, wearing a ridiculous hat and a threadbare embroidered dress. All pinks and creams with german metal braid, she immediately caught my eye and I snapped her up for £2 knowing she would be the perfect angel to sit on the top of our Christmas tree this […]

STARTING EARLY WITH HANDMADE GIFTS

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of meeting the author of Junk Genius the lovely Juliette Goggin. It was a sunny Saturday and as we made our way through the twisting lanes out past Battle and into Ashburnham, we were welcomed by a smiling Juliette at her garden gate. Not being able to drive […]

Hello! I’m writing today from my sofa, tucked up with a cat and an endless stream of christmas themed programmes on the box, I have a cold but am hoping it’s going to leave soon. After a week of sold laughter with my mum and sisters in frosty Ireland, I returned to a DIY blitz […]

Obviously when travelling I always keep my eyes peeled for any new bakery opportunity that should arise and Laguna beach was no exception, after browsing the lovely collection of home wares in Areo we happened to find Casey’s Cupcakes.
