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…

Time for me and him.

Last week Stu and I managed to escape for a much needed child free break. Let me just repeat that last bit, CHILD FREE!! To add further emphasis to this detail, you should know the two of us haven’t been away, just us, since before Nancy, our eldest, showed up nearly 7 years ago. Big…

Easter Party.

We’re off up to Wales tomorrow morning, to visit family and join in with my cousin’s birthday celebrations. This means we’re away on Easter Sunday and Nancy was a little concerned that the Easter Bunny wouldn’t know our temporary address, she’s even written to him, explaining the situation! I’ve reasured her that that’s one clever…

Everything But The Dog Feature.

EBTD, a London based MidCentury and Scandinavian furniture specialist, has featured me over on their blog today. Click below to have a read… Whilst you’re over there, take a look around, they have some absolutely beautiful examples of classic, timeless vintage furniture. This Ib Kofod-Larsen sofa could turn my heart away from my beloved Ercol…

Industrial dining with The Hairpin Leg Co.

Our Ply and hairpin legged kitchen table gets a lot of love and compliments, it’s such a simple and easy design to make yourself and I’ve been promising a blog post about it for quite some time, it’s coming, honest, but this isn’t that post. Instead I have something else to share with you… I’ve…

A window solution.

It’s no secret that we don’t have any window dressings in our downstairs, I find many options overly fussy and as someone who is very anti-housework I see curtains and blinds as an extra place for dust to settle. We’re fortunate that the back of the house isn’t particularly overlooked and we live in a…

Tiptoe Craft Desk Update.

The craft corner is perhaps the most used area of the house, certainly by the girls that is. If we had to get rid of every single toy, as long as the supply cupboard was well stocked, I’m not sure Nancy and Eula would be all that concerned, it’s a very industrious corner, a constant…

Cosy Christmas by candlelight.

Hey, guess what, I’m going to talk about candles again! Some may say I’m a stuck record, but with the days so dull at the moment, we just have wetness and gale force winds here in Cornwall, none of the white wonderland magic I’ve seen further up country, life definitely requires some brightening up. I…

Simple things, beautiful natural wax candles.

I’ve lost my sharing mojo of late and as such have neglected to write here for a while, I blame the changing season and the energy it seems to take to adjust. In theory I love Autumn, once upon a time I may have even stated that it was my favourite time of the year,…

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…

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…

Mollie Makes Feature.

It’s been a bit of a crappy week this one, but I don’t want to go into that. Instead here’s a little bit of yay me-ness! I just made that a word, ok! Those that follow me on Facebook and Instagram may have seen me mention that the rather fabulous Mollie Makes asked me to feature in their magazine, actually I…
