As the seasons change I find my wardrobe wish list goes through the roof! With inspiration everywhere and the high street all looking a little same-y I need to get back into mixing up old and new, so I thought it would be fun to try a new weekly feature, Vintage fashion Fridays. I hope [...]
Only a month or so away, my favourite season will begin, a light breeze will whip at the trees pulling down the leaves, leaves that seem like they only just opened, due to the crazy weather this year, Summer is passing in a wave of torrential downpours with grey skies and every now and then [...]
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 [...]
I found something beautiful in my email today, these sunny bright flowers and some interior details to go with them. Solid rain on all days except the marathon since we arrived here last Monday, booo. So these charming yellow freesias and late daffodils are giving me the morning boost I need today x All images [...]
A new Hawaiian Ruby Guava Pacifica Candle on our mantlepiece has rekindled my love for coral brights, beautifully scented in creator Brook’s words- with ”the warm smell of coconut wax on surfboards mingling with the sweet scent of the guavas from the tree in front of our house. This blend is reminiscent of paradise”. When I picked it up [...]
We just had a delivery at Butlers of the loveliest scented candles, hand cream and laundry bags from Izola, looking through their site I also found these beautiful soaps and soap dishes, with the husband being a real soap hound I just know he would love a set xAll images Izola.
Hello Monday people, I hope you had a lovely weekend? We had home cooked food, coffee at the De La Warr, bought lots of new Kilner jars and tidied the larder (no more peg topped bags for us!), some sunny Sunday morning walking, picture taking, a movie and and a huge bowl of honey and [...]
Love the peaceful washed blues in these images from the new Volga Linen CatalogueAll images Volga Linen.
Mysterious circumstances and fancy urns, just a few of Baltimore based artist Yelena Bryksenkova’s favourite things. Who is in her own words ‘Russian-born, midwest-raised, baltimore-based’. A few of my favourite things are her wonderful illustrations and paintings.I love the colours and patterns, the fun things her characters take part in, their delicate worlds and surroundings. Yelena’s [...]
Today’s Blog of the week comes from the beautiful world and Tumblr of Nicole Hill, our paths crossed over at Flickr a couple of years ago, and although I knew about Nicole’s shop, I only just discovered her oh so pretty Tumblr and I am so glad I did, now I hope you’ll visit too. A beautiful [...]
Of all the amazing and wonderful things we saw last February on our trip to California, the coastline along Big Sur was just the most beautiful. Breath taking, (quite literally) as some of the drive was a trifle scary. The curves of the land met the rocky shore and glistening swells of the sea, turquoise, [...]
All things bright and beautiful, the last tiniest art show of 2011. The sun is shining in one half of the sky, the other half is clouding over with a menacing grey. After all the fun and games of Christmas are packed away we still need some colour inspiration to start a new year. With [...]
Saturday in London, firstly to get the husbands wedding ring resized, we went to Tiffany’s, and it was so pretty all decorated with lights. The second we stepped through the door and were surrounded by glittering jewellery and pale decorations, I felt the first real tug of Christmas. Then to find somewhere new to eat [...]
Pale, simple, faded with a shabby glamour, my six things today come from the three shops that make up Rigby & Mac. ‘The dulwich trader at No.9 combines country style with a touch of glamour, Tomlinsons at No.89 has a feminine, vintage feel and proves that pale is definitely interesting and Ed at No.41 is [...]
One more day until it is officially Winter, mild until yesterday’s gale force winds and cold rain showers, so I think our luck just ran out. But something sparkly always cheers me up and today that cheer comes from this sequinned necklace by Toast.
So worth waiting for, the new Sparrow & Co website is open, and I have to say if I could buy all the things we like, the shop would be empty. All of the products are beautiful, unique and have their own story to tell. Things you will buy to enjoy for life, not on [...]
A garden or some outside space has been on our wishlist for some time now, so when I received this urban garden collection from Kate at One of a kind, I popped them straight on the mantle piece and jewellery hanger, a tiny forest of lilac and green linen trees, each with a sweet printed recycled [...]
