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…

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…

Alice in Scandiland Shop.

A week ago I opened my Instagram shop, a place for me to sell my preloved, vintagey and contemporary bits and bobs, some from the around the house, some that I find when I’m out and about. I thought I’d talk a little more about it here today. I’m a firm believer that you shouldn’t…

Outlaw 2017, sharing creative spirit.

Before the summer I was asked if I would like to come along to the November Outlaw Market and run a workshop of some description, the idea excited me and I eagerly agreed, but then realised prepping for it would clash with other commitments, so I had to pull out. However, I could spare the time to…

London, Part 2: Out and About.

I managed to squeeze more than I expected into my short trip to London, this included some mooching around the shops, in particular the beauties that Stoke Newington had to offer, and boy what a treat they were. The day of the Amara Awards we decided to explore the local area, to slow things down a bit…

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…

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…

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…
