In usual style

In typical/usual style, I have left everything until the last minute for Christmas. Cards are still sitting on the table, presents are yet to be bought, food and wine waiting to see our fridge. Thank goodness for online shopping and home delivery! Some pics above from my travels this weekend.

Where the fairies are

Adoring these earthy mysterious organic prints by local artist Melissa Williams. They remind me so much of my childhood as a little girl playing with flowers under willow trees trying to find evidence of where the fairies had been (they always left their shoes in the white flowers of stinging nettles so no one could get them :-)). To see more visit here.

Decorating night

I'm really starting to feel the magic of Christmas now we are only two weeks away and a lot of my work for the year is over. I have my little silver baubles, twinkly stars, fairy lights, glitter and ribbons all ready to come out of their box this evening. There is nothing more enjoyable than filling your home with sparkles and love :-)

I can't decide if I'm feeling autumnal or summery, or perhaps just a bit confused! What is happening to our December? I think it might be time to get those gum boots I've been lusting after or at least add them to my wish list for Christmas...Hmmm :-)

In bloom

And so the obsession with hydrangeas continues! I hope you all had a great weekend. I have a rather busy few days coming up but will be back before you know it. Promise. x

If you went, what did you find?

Sail away

So close to the sea and so little time to really make the most of it. In a few days though we will be all hands on deck as we do a little sailing, I'm so excited it has been ages.
