Party.

I’m sat here, foggy headed from too much wine last night, the girls on my lap, watching a film, all stuffed with cake and just having a lovely lazy Saturday. It’s a rare thing, argument free days, so I’m just soaking it up and enjoying the sofa snuggles. We’re watching Fly Away Home. So, I…

Blooms and Babes with 3acre Blooms.

I had such a fun morning today with some lovely ladies, a much needed treat after the worst night in years, Nancy and Eula clearly conspired to tag team throughout the early hours, resulting in me having less than 3 hours broken sleep. Have kids they said, it’ll be the best thing you do with…

Living Room Revamp, setting a plan in place.

The living room has been in a state of disassemble for weeks now, waiting for this and that, but mostly just for me to get more motivated. This is the room that has possibly benefitted the least from the extension (read lots more about that here). It lost it’s definition and felt a bit like…

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,…

Interior Fantasies.

If you had a beautiful, large, empty house and the freedom to create what ever you wanted, what do you think you’d come up with? I had a dream last night that I owned a French Chateau (no doubt brought on by watching Escape to the Chateau, which I totally love, does anyone else watch it?) Most…

Favourite things feature.

Time to share a few of my favourite things this week…. Pinterest inspiration… I know Macrame has been ‘on trend’ for some time now, I’ve always appreciated it’s beauty, but didnt really have anywhere for any new things, but as I have a rejig in the living room (more about this in a few weeks)…

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…
