Remember how fun that potting shed in Kent looked like to stay in?! We loved hearing about the crafty things to do in Kent so when Laura suggested telling us about similar places in Suffolk too we were all ears. The cottages there look equally quirky and fun for a getaway, hopefully we’ll be able…

There’s definitely something about the promise of a new year that makes you want to start planning holidays! H and I have been trying to find somewhere in the UK that we’ve never been to before to getaway to for a long weekend or something. As if by fate the lovely Laura from Freedom Holiday Homes…

Christmas Soap

The lovely people over at AO at home are running a soap making competition, ending today! We had some initial problems – we are silly and didn’t think that FRESH fruit would stop soap setting…. it does, so probably best avoided. Our soap creation is for men. It has a rich allspice scent and a…

I have been making my way through my pile of Liberty fabric which is leaving me with tons of scraps. These little scraps are hard to throw away, I know they’re so tiny there isn’t much you can do with them… but they are still a little piece of Liberty print and so I have…

I love the look of big, bright and colourful paper pom-poms; they’re such an easy and effective way to quickly transform a space that I knew I wanted to make some for my wedding party next month.

Succulent Pots

I bought my first couple of succulents a while ago. One has died a long death, but I think it has had a baby so I’m going to cut it off and hope for the best. The other is looking alright, but not too happy and I think that’s because I have over-watered them in…

I’ve been collecting old jars to decorate and use for flowers, straws and anything else I can think of at my wedding party. You might have seen my post on Yarn Jars and I was envisaging doing something similar to these but I also wanted to try out a few other ideas. I started experimenting…
