Friend feature: 1930s Vintage meets modern house tour.

A fair while ago I featured my lovely friend Rachel’s Victorian home on the blog and the renovations they had undertaken so far, it was supposedly the start of a more frequent feature, where I would share with you the homes of my friends, some in the real world, but also those I have come…

Instagram Giveaway

Hey there lovelies, a quick heads up, over on my Instagram I’ve just posted about my beautiful collaborative Giveaway with the wonderful Hilda Carr. You may have already seen some of her work in my home, she made my two favourite mugs (a third beauty is in the making and on it’s way to me soon as I…

Why all white? My reasons for *almost* all white walls.

One of my lovely followers messaged me last week to ask about my house and my decision to have an all white background. She was interested in my reasons for our doing this, the things I have learned as a result of living with a white interior for a few years now.  I thought these…

Farewell to the holidays.

Today we went on an adventure to Looe Island, a promise I made Nancy last November. As we pulled our coats tightly around us, breathing in the fresh chilly air, then seeking out Hot Chocolate to warm our frozen fingers, we made a pact that we would have a Moomin style adventure come the warmth…

Scandinavian inspired Kitchen update.

This post has been a long time coming, but as ever life just runs away with me and I never seem to find the right time to take ‘finished’ photos. So I’m going to use a mixture of snaps from here and there, to take you through the story of our kitchen. Grab a cuppa,…

Vintage Antiques Fair.

The girls and I went to an Antique/Vintage Fair today at The Royal Cornwall Showground, Wadebride. I couldn’t help but take some snaps of the treasures we explored and I thought I’d quickly share some of them with you, as I attempt to get the small people to sleep… I have a thing for old…

For the greater good.

I’m on a mission to reduce our ‘stuff’ again, and that means saying goodbye to pieces I love, but rarely use.  The initial decisions can be hard, but I find more often than not I don’t miss those things once they’re gone.  Naturally the holidays has led to the house being quite chaotic, the expected…

Surviving Summer with Soren’s House.

We’re well into the flow of the Summer holidays, but this week I’ve been plagued by terrible, headsplitting toothache and as a result have been in a bit of a grump. So when a big box of goodies arrived from the lovely Soren’s House it was just the boost we all needed. Naturally the box itself had…

Garden makeover, Phase One.

I’ve shared various snippets of our garden transformations over the last several months, but until now haven’t managed to get it all down in one place. I’ve been waiting to take ‘the right shot’, for the weather to be just right, but in doing so time has gone by and some of the beautiful plants…

A little something just for me.

The school holidays are upon us and I am trying to find my feet, find the balance with two small and feisty people at home 24/7. I’m not ashamed to say I like and very much need time to myself, this is something I am realising more and more in recent months. I need time…

Beautiful blue.

I thought I’d share some of my snaps from today, because it was kinda a bit beautiful. After delivering my turquoise chair to it’s new owner we had planned to head to Treyarnon which was close by, but road works scuppered that plan, so we headed to Crantock instead, tough life isn’t it! I’m pretending…
