Hello, We awoke this morning to heavy snow. I’m not one for the cold or wet so I decided to spend my snow day Sunday drinking lots of tea and styling a little festive flat lay. I made a moody backboard using a canvas board and acrylic paints. It works really well against wire fairy […]Read More Festive floral flat lay
Since getting Purdey, our new puppy two weeks ago I have not stopped, there has not been much time for photography I can tell you. I can’t wait until she’s old enough to take over the fields. I love this shot of my daughter walking through the corn fields last year! I can’t get […]Read More Walking in the fields.

Im not usually a fan of red, but in the depths of winter, when these berries hang like ruby jewels I’m greatful for their statement.

I love my nespresso machine! I’m always a bit miffed that Mr Clooney isn’t standing by it whenever I enter my kitchen but whatcha gonna do… At least I get to sit and enjoy my coffee in peace, with my latest country homes mag sprawled out in front of me. Have a great Thursday […]Read More Morning coffee
My china blue roses linen is the perfect soft delicate background for a February flat lay. I love to take a minute, with a cup of chamomile tea, my wild flowers book for new inspiration, a fresh bloom and a scrap of one of my fabrics.

There are few things more calming then sitting down with a fresh piece of Lino ready to make your mark. I love designing and making my own blocks for fabric printing, being in charge of the whole process from drawing, cutting, selecting fabric and the instant gratification that comes with something handmade. I think […]Read More Textile design, block printing.
