Welcome to our family blog. We share lots of posts here, and you can also follow along over there: 

Our happy home

I love being at home and creating a happy, loving, creative and inspiring place for my family to live in. One day, in the not too distant future, I hope we will have a place that we own, so I can really do all that I want to do in a space that's ours. But for now I am content to be renting where we are and every so often I will give you a little peek into our happy home. 

Here is a glimpse of my home office.


Pink and green suitcases from Pink Loves Brown

Cute little polaroid photo from our wedding by Polly Alexandre

Mini-bunting by Sass and Belle

Orla Kiely box

Live Well - Laugh Often - Love Much sign by East of India

Big jar of buttons - collected by me from lots of places on my journeys and decorated with washi tape from Papermash and some buttons

Big Kilner jar of cottons

Cute 'old couple' canvas from Temporary Measure in Keswick. (I got this just before we went and bought my engagement ring in an antique shop! I hope we are still dancing in the kitchen when we grow old...)

Glitter - again, collected by me on my travels

{Most of the rest of my office is currently in a bit of chaos as I try to rearrange things, clear-out, declutter and finally work out what to do with my so close but not close enough, almost finished PhD thesis that takes up so much room.}


My little boy is 3!
