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…

Master Bedroom Makeover.

Our house was shot for a feature in House Beautiful Magazine last month and this was the catalyst needed to push on and get multiple projects finally done, in time for the photographer’s arrival. Our bedroom had a mini makeover 2 years ago, on a budget of about £5 and that was fine, for then….

A world away, just for us.

Last weekend we escaped real life and made a beeline to the Penventon Park Hotel, in Redruth. I’d been invited along for a night’s Press Stay, to take a look at the hotel and experience it for ourselves. The timing couldn’t have been better, with life so hectic at the moment (when is it ever…

The importance of scent in interiors.

There are many ways to approach designing a space, but for me it’s about a feeling. Whether it’s a piece of furniture that excites me, setting me onto a path of inspiration, a colour or certain accessory, scent is as vital as all these other elements. A room should be an experience that goes far…

Eula’s Room Revamp.

Today I’m breaking my blogger’s block and putting something new here. It has been the longest I’ve ever gone without writing in this space and as the days have ticked by the weight of my absence has got heavier, completely crushing my ability to string the right words together. The longer you go without doing…

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,…
