A glassed fronted welcome with hand painted gold calligraphy, you say? I can’t think of anything lovelier than strolling along and visiting my reflection in one of these stunning windows!

Items have a tendency of coming in and out of fashion, and cut glass decanters seem to be one of those items. They seemed to go through a phase of being tucked away in cupboards rather than on display but I feel they are far to beautiful to not be seen. When put in front of a window, the light shimmers of their cut angles….simply beautiful.

We had a party a few weeks ago and used the decanters that my Mum gave to be (which were given to her by my Grandmother) and made individual labels for each, hung by scrap pieces of fabric that I had lying around the workshop. Simple, yet effective.

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!

There are a few things in life that are too beautiful to simply to tossed away once their primary use has been exhausted, and the stunning vintage seed packets are one of those things. With their vibrant designs, kitsch colour ways and nostalgic beauty, they’re perfect to be grouped together in frames and proudly displayed.

So, I have decided to start collecting plates. Any shapes, size, colour and design and I’m going to proudly display them in my home. I’ve always been attracted to ceramics and the beautiful designs and colours that have spanned the decades, and constantly come across one of plates on my travels. Watch this space…

Happy Friday to you lovely lot, too!

Sit & Eat

As a follow on from last weeks post, Hearty Home, I thought I’d collate some images of lovely dining areas. Whether you’ve got a separate dining area or one joined to your kitchen, I think that creating a nice environment to entertain in is important. I like to team eclectic pieces of furniture to create a quirky feel and add colour and texture with textiles.

If you want to see more of my inspirations for creating a beautiful area to sit & eat, check out the Hana & George Pinterest page.

Happy Wednesday!

I have always been interested in print making and one day, it is something that I would like to learn how to do. What is more personal that a fabric that has not only been designed by yourself but also printed by your own fair hands?

As soon as I saw this image of factory workers printing in 1947, that I had to share it with you. Even though printing techniques have been modernised nowadays, I love the team work and attention to detail that the ladies would have had to commit to to create lengths of cloth, with each batch being unique due to the nature in which they were printed back in the day….

By My Side

I am on a quest for the perfect side tables but haven’t quite found what I am looking for yet, so thought I’d turn to Pinterest for some inspiration.

I like to have my side tables piled with books, photos, flowers and a lamp. and love the idea of having a rectangular shaped ones for each side. What do you have by your beside?

You can take a peek at further of my inspirations at the Hana & George Pinterest page, too!

As a keen traveller, I am always looking to plan for my next adventure to experience new cultures and places and I love the idea of having antique and vintage globes on display. Not only are they visually beautiful but they also come in a variety of shapes and sizes which make them an interesting vignette on a side table or above a bookcase.

Happy Monday!
