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

A selection of loveliness

I hope you all have some good things planned for the extra long bank holiday weekend. We are going to the Apple Cart Festival in Victoria Park on Sunday, which I'm very excited about. And there's talk of BBQs, pottering, napping and general taking it as easy you can with a 5, 3 and 1 year old!

I have some lovely things to share with you, which you might like to spend time looking at over the weekend.

My favourite shop in the world finally opens an online shop.

Mr Christian (finally) starts a blog.

Byebye Birdie now goes up to age 2 and has a cute new shop with even more goodies.

From beautiful stationery to new treasures for your home.

Feel summery and make this.

And finally, here's a little competition to win a copy of my favourite book of the year. It's Susannah Conway's "This I Know. Notes on unraveling the heart." A beautiful book that I can't put down and I know one that I will keep going back to at different times in my life. Susannah writes so well. I feel like I'm sitting with her sharing a coffee and cake in a lovely cosy cafe on big comfy sofas, listening to her wise, thoughtful words. It is illustrated with her precious polaroid images too. I will definitely be recommending this to my female friends {Guys I don't really think this one is written for you!} and I bought this extra copy to share with one of you.


If you'd like to win a copy please leave a comment below and I will draw a winner on Tuesday 5th June. Good luck! x

This competition is now closed and the winner is Muddling Along. Congratulations! xx

That was May: This is June
