JANUARY HIGHS

JANUARY HIGHS

Hello and happy 2014 to you! Sorry for just disappearing, but the festive season just carried me off and I am only just getting back to normal. I hope you had a lovely time with family and friends. My mornings have been spent enjoying sitting cross legged on the carpet looking out through the french doors […]


THE FADING OF AUTUMN

THE FADING OF AUTUMN

Wild winds and heavy rain have sped up this slow starting Autumn of ours, some days of brilliant sunshine have fooled me, but my garden trees are almost bare and the cold is creeping in. We have almost finished our bedroom, but matt varnishing floors and painting skirting are taking up all my time.The camera […]


THE LANDSCAPE I CRAVE

THE LANDSCAPE I CRAVE

Hello, how have you been?! Sorry for the silence, I have been away working all last week in a pop up store and bar for London Cocktail week. Now exhausted and sick with a horrible cold I spent yesterday in bed with my kitties and many cups of honey and lemon. Today I am semi […]


CRISPER DAYS AND A LITTLE LESS DAYLIGHT

CRISPER DAYS AND A LITTLE LESS DAYLIGHT

Happy midweek lovelies, last year the Summer never was and winter arrived abruptly in August with a storm that stripped the trees and ended at the beginning of this June, I think there was a Spring but it happened in the blink of an eye. This years glorious Summer has filled me with hope. When Mother […]


THE FADING OF A SEASON

THE FADING OF A SEASON

Everything around us slowly changes, it’s nice to have the luxury of time to notice it. We have been on the road, driving to see family a lot lately. The drive is beautiful, through Pett Level to Rye, Camber to Lydd then on across Romney Marsh all the way to Hythe. The fields have gone […]


SNAPS FROM THE WEEKEND

SNAPS FROM THE WEEKEND

Bits and pieces from days at home, this lovely hand printed postcard is from a new ice cream parlour that has opened up in Hastings Old Town called Blue Bird. Its the cutest hole in the wall with hand made souvenirs and ice cream for sale. Shrimp nets and pirate eye patches muddle in with […]


SNAPS FROM THE WEEKEND

SNAPS FROM THE WEEKEND

My coral sunset peonies are on their last wave of colour, a delicate pale gold, but there are still a couple of days until the petals completely drop. I have so enjoyed their beauty each day, my friends couldn’t believe they were real. Simple and quickly made garlands from my Friday night gathering, before we moved […]


BIG NIGHT IN – HEALTHY LIVING PARTY

BIG NIGHT IN - HEALTHY LIVING PARTY

Happy Sunday to you, today I am sharing the fun I had taking part in 


SIMPLE PLEASURES – RHODODENDRON CUTTING

SIMPLE PLEASURES - RHODODENDRON CUTTING

Back out in the front yard, lopping off boughs and digging up unwanted shrubs, this little rhododendron snippet looked too pretty to drop in the garden waste, so I popped it in this old pottery vase to survive another day. The only place I like the colours mauve, purple or lilac is in or from […]


LATELY IN PICTURES

LATELY IN PICTURES

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 […]

THINGS TO TRY IN APRIL

THINGS TO TRY IN APRIL

Thanks for all the new home joy! We are settling in quicker than I imagined and gradually finding places to put our many things. So now I am feeling ready to get back to normality, which involves saving a million links and writing lists of notes, half of which I never get around to using. […]


WHAT’S NEW PUSSYCAT

WHAT'S NEW PUSSYCAT

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 […]


FOOLHARDY

FOOLHARDY

A couple more pictures from around the place, up and out early today, the sun is shining and although the forecast says rain I can’t quite imagine this sky turning grey today. With a train ride through the countryside and some window shopping planned, I hope my faith in the clouds is not too foolhardy.

ICE CREAM FOR BREAKFAST

ICE CREAM FOR BREAKFAST

A blustery, rainy evening, made for a quiet Saturday night in with the tigers. I am so happy to wake up without a hangover. Ready to face the day making things in my workroom. I am going to eat ice cream for breakfast in one of my new enamel bowls and salad for lunch, if […]

So I will see you again Monday hopefully with a shop update, restocking the shelves with colourful handmade things. I miss my tiny precious tigers already, but […]
