Big Shop News.

Things have been a little quiet round here I know, almost 4 weeks since I last posted, but life has entered a whole new level of busy and there hasn’t been enough room in my head for intelligible blog banter. In case you haven’t heard, I’m opening a shop in Lostwithiel. This life changing decision…

What do I do it all for?

Today has got me thinking, what do I do it all for? All this stuff I’m mixed up in, fingers in lots of pies… A few years ago we decided we wanted some babies, so we did that. I planned on staying at home with them for as long as I could, I didn’t really…

A leap of faith.

Every so often in life an opportunity pops up and it’s down to you to make the decision as to whether you’ll jump right into it, both feet first, or hold back tentatively, citing timing issues, finances, commitments elsewhere, all very valid reasons. Recently I’ve been racing along, continually working on projects in the house,…

Living Room Reveal (version 307)

FINALLY I can share with you in full the newest and I pray, long lasting version of the living room. Crikey it’s taken longer than anticipated! Some of you may have read the last blog I wrote about this room, at that time I was in a pretty awful state of interior affairs… You can…

Ending the weekend on a Cocktail high.

Great weekends are made up of furniture buying exploration in our beautiful home county, discovering new beaches, eating good food and rounding it all off with cocktails in the garden. 》A disclaimer here, there was also much arguing too, the girls have been in quite a funk the last few days and my patience wore…

Out and About – Falmouth and Penryn.

I’ve had the loveliest 2 days, spending some quality time with close friends, away from the house, the children, it’s felt like a mini holiday, which can only be a good thing. Today I met up with my lovely friend Kirsty and we headed to Falmouth for a few hours. I took a fair few…

The first Creative Lunch.

Last week’s first Instagram Creative Workshop was so much fun and I can’t wait for the my next group on Tuesday. I thought I’d share some quick snaps I took, to give you a small insight into the session. I’ve also included a ground floor video House Tour, as the house was so tidy the…

Small Space Garden Ideas – Table Top Edible Bowl.

It’s no secret that I’m in love with my garden, those that follow me on Instagram and watch my stories will have seen that it features heavily in our daily life. This said, it’s a relatively recent love affair, which intensified when we spent some time last year having a bit of an overhaul. You…

Tipping the balance.

Being self employed is a funny one, in theory it sounds great doesn’t it, the freedom to define your own working terms, be your own boss, flexible working hours, you choose where, who, why. Following your own creativity, fitting around the daily flow of family life, just perfect. For me it has happened by accident,…

Leisurely lunching and all things nice.

Increasingly I am realising how much healthier my relationship with my husband is when we get out of the house, explore a little and talk about things aside from the kids and how they’re driving us crazy or what’s on the diy to-do list. Stu can’t sit idle for long, if we’re at home he…

Shop, shops, shopping.

Last week I wrote about the little break Stu and I had in Bristol and at the Westbrook Court B&B in Hereford…a much needed, child free few days to invest some time in us, to relax and recuperate. During our travels I got to visit some absolutely wonderful independent shops and cafes, some of which…
