Christmas Time.

Writing here has become progressively harder for me this year, not just because I seem to be so short on time, but also the longer I go between blog posts, the more I start doubting myself and the ideas I have to share. I question whether it’s actually of interest and am I just being…

The Alice in Scandiland Shop Gift Guide.

Last minute larry here with my gift guide, but better late than never, right?! You can easily shop this gift guide as I’ve created a special section on the online shop, you can find it here. I really enjoyed putting this edit together, even if I only decided to do it and hour and a…

Stocking Fillers for the Girls.

Today was an unexpected day at home, having succumb to a viral thing that’s been stalking me for weeks. Wonderful timing as ever and I’ve had permanent guilt all day that the shop is closed this close to Christmas, absolutely not how I saw this week going. Anyway, I’ve mostly been collapsed on the sofa,…

A Christmas Gift Guide with a Difference.

Giving a gift can be a wonderful experience, that buzz when you know you’ve found just the thing for that particular person, the time taken to wrap it up beautifully, the anticipation of handing it over. However, finding the right gift can also be rather stressful and headache inducing, especially for that person (usually a…

Advent begins.

There’s nothing like a little crafty project to break the blog block, hi, remember me? Possibly not, it’s been a rather long time, again! Needless to say life is CRAZY busy right now, but I am really excited to share the Advent Calendar I’ve put together for the girls this year. It’s been a relatively…

Christmas Stockings and things.

It’s Christmas Eve and all the planning and buying and build up is coming to frution. It’s the creating that I love most about Christmas, the chance to justify sitting down and spending half an hour weaving foliage into a ring, just as important, in fact much more so than the 3 loads of dirty…

The Decorated Tree.

Last week I shared with you our family Christmas tree buying traditions, but left you with the naked tree. Now it’s time for the decorations. I like to think I’m pretty good at taking snaps of our home and the details within, but certain things are just beyond my limited skill set. Photographing decorated Christmas trees…

Christmas table inspiration.

I thought I’d share some of my Christmas table inspiration, I have a thing with perusing table scapes on Pinterest, it feeds my love for beautiful crockery, lovely glasses and general faffing and prettifying. Add in a sprinkle of Christmas and I’m in heaven. For me, this year, it’s all about bringing the outside in,…

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…

O Christmas Tree…

I’d planned on waiting until this weekend to get our tree, it felt like it was too soon, but with the weather being so questionable at the moment we (well more like I) decided to take advantage of the patches of sunshine on last Saturday. Typically the moment we committed (told the girls what was…
