Winter styling 

Hello, as we’re on the eve of December I thought I’d share a few pics of how I start to sprinkle some festivity through my home. The tree doesn’t go up for another couple of weeks but I like to add tiny touches to get in the mood. Pine cones and colourful dried rose petals…

Colourful September 

Hello, I just love September! It’s one of my favourite months of the year. I was picking flowers last week for my pop-up flower stall and thought I’d share how colourful it was.

Walking in the fields.

Handmade and vintage fair, first exhibition.

      It really has been a manic couple of weeks, I’ve been up to my eyes printing fabric, sewing cushions and gathering together my hoard of vintage treasures for my very first fair. Throw a puppy into the mix and you can begin to imagine my exhaustion, ha, but it’s all worth while when…
