Patched

When you first move into a home, it is all stations go with redecorating and adding personal touches. However, i always find that it isn’t until you’ve lived in the space for a while that you start really adding your own mark on somewhere.

Over the past few years I have collected cotton embroidered hankies. Some might find this odd but I find them to be delicate and romantic, and in todays age they no longer serve a purpose but I want to display my collection. With this in mind, I am going to make a curtain and quilt. Patchworked together, seams to seams.

Happy Friday!

Fushia & Neon

…A bar cart with crystal cut glass, candles, a touch of gold and fushia roses…all topped off by lovely bedding with a touch of neon.

Bliss.

Hibernation

I’m looking out the window and it’s November. Actually, no, It’s June but it might as well be November.

This time last week I was donning my sandals and strutting around in a t-shirt, this week I am snuggling on the sofa under a blanket and my Diptyque candles are flickering away. When the weather is like it is today, I get in hibernation mode. I’m of the opinion that there’s not much better than the comforting light given off by my beloved lamps (I’ll go into my love of lamps in another post) and the sound of the rain tapping at the window.┬áThere is something about the British weather that I like – the ever changing ‘seasons’ keep me on my toes and I quite like not knowing what it’ll be like in another few days.

As I sit here vegetating, I thought I’d share some warming images with you all. Enjoy!
