Recently I’ve been…

Growing some tomato seedlings. I was a bit late putting these in and have just spent the weekend re-planting them into separate pots, so fingers crossed they now have the space to grow. As a completely novice gardener (one who has just killed another house plant) I'm thrilled to have made it this far!

Making this Japanese bound notebook at a craft fair. Bookbinding isn't one of those crafts I've been desperate to try, but this really was great fun to make the hour long workshop just disappeared. I’m saving it for some extra special note writing.

Arranging our new rug and coffee table. The rug is a new purchase from ikea, a bargain compared to a very similar one I liked elsewhere. The coffee table is a vintage trunk my parents' recently turfed out of their attic, which brings some much needed character to our living room. Once we've sorted a few finishing touches, cushions and pictures on the walls, I'll show you the full effect.

Loving this new two tone lamp from Lane, which I won in Lou from Little Green Shed's competition. It's the Brighton and Mr David colour way and has cheered up the blank canvas that is my craft room – a space that has been very neglected since we moved in last year.  

What have you been doing?



  1. Go you growing your tomato plants from seeds! I cheated and brought them when they were in plant form haha. I've killed many a houseplant in my time, especially cacti but oddly i'm not doing so badly with outdoor plants or veg. Fingers crossed for the rest of the year!

    1. We got the seeds for free - I probably would have cheated too otherwise! Hehe

  2. Im growing a bonsai tree at the moment =]


  3. Your new lampshade is stunning! I love the colours... Good luck with the plants. I'm terrible at gardening but tomato plants are hardy! If mine can survive then I'm sure your's will too :-)


  4. Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous. That notebook is adorable, the rug/trunk combo is perfect, and that lampshade is perfection! I've missed your blog; it's so darn pretty. Hurrah for being back on the internet again (me not you :) ) Hope settling into your new house is going brilliantly xxx
