See that beautiful house down there... all empty and shiny and bare, just waiting for someone like me to come along and put lovely things in it.... Well, it is in danger.

The Boy wants to do something truly horrid to this gorgeous, beautiful, stylish space... thats right, he has his heart set on one of these horrors...

Goodbye 'burbs, HELLO City!

I just got the call I have been waiting for, we have been approved to take residence at this beautiful property that we fell head over heels for last week....

We wanted to be closer to the city, near beautiful Hyde Park, and we wanted a house that was simply more 'us', and this baby ticks all the boxes!

I cannot wait to start making this stunning house my home x

Some quiet time...

Things are a bit quiet on the blog front at the moment and will remain to be for the next few days. Some very sad news means I have to wave the Boy off at the airport tomorrow so he can visit his beloved grandmother who is not well. I will miss him terribly and worry constantly (because thats just what I do) so a mini-break with a girlfriend has been planned for the weekend and will hopefully keep me from going bonkers.

I will however, hopefully have some very very exciting news to blog about when I return, but i am not going to jinx it by saying anything now, so you will just have to wait. x

Get Knotted

I saw this interesting DIY project on the fabulous Design*Sponge a while ago and decided to give it a go myself. I made two sizes and they have ended up as a little piece of wall art by the front door. I am toying with the idea of dying them, but they are quite nicely understated in their natural state, what do you think?

New addition to the UK cushion series

This is my newest addition to the UK flag cushion family and my new personal fave. Made with 100% Indian Dupion Silk it has a much more sophisticated look and feel. I make these to order so if you would like one of your very own then please feel free to contact me for pricing etc. X

My Hurty Back

Oh the pain!!!

I feel the need to share with whoever is out there, the excruciatingly diabolical pain of my very, VERY, Hurty Back. I have no idea what caused it, it could have been the new routine that I couldn't quite get the hang of at the gym yesterday, it could be a slothing injury from lying on the couch watching back to back episodes of 'Flight of the Conchords' with the Boy... I don't know what did it, but OH. MY. GOD... IT HURTS! I shall give you a few moments now so that you may send lashings of e-sympathy my way.....



Righto, thanks for that.

So. after a somewhat amusing, but at the same time horribly painful and quite distressing trip to the Chiropractor and the GP, (amusing because of the fact I had to hobble along in public, bent at a 90 degree angle whilst hanging on to the Boys arm for support, and intermittently dropping to floor in great spasms of pain, sounding like I had a bad case of tourettes... ... hmm, doesn't sound that amusing does it? Perhaps you just had to be there...) I was prescribed a lovely cocktail of painkillers and anti-inflams and sent home to 'see how I go'.

How great are prescription pain killers?! So after popping the pills...

...It was home to the couch for back to back 'Spooks' and being waited on by the Boy who brought me our fave take away Vietnamese and tried his very hardest not to laugh at my pathetic attempts to move about. Bless his little heart x

Hopefully all settles down and i'll regain all normal function again very soon.
