My apologies for posting about Christmas decorations when the Summer has only just ended, but I came across these adorable mice today and I have a feeling they'll be sold out before Halloween.
They are so gorgeous, I wouldn't want to pack them away after Christmas!
You can get them from Cox and Cox and if you need any further persuasion (which you probably don't) they are currently offering a 20% discount to all new customers.
I just can't get enough of this beautiful colour combination and I'm building up quite a large wish-list. Today I'm sharing a few of my favourites - they are all handmade by independent artists and makers here in the UK - and this first selection are all under £10. Just click on the photographs to visit the shops.
These are a little bit extra at £10+ to £30.
And these may need a bit of saving for - but they are definitely worth it!
If you love this colour combination as much as I do - have a look at my previous post and check out my Mustard and Grey Pinterest board.
"Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful".
It's almost one hundred and forty years since William Morris first shared his belief and it's as true today as it was then. It's a philosophy that makes a house into a home. As with many things in life, it's the little things that often make the big difference.
Adding accessories to your home can instantly refresh it, especially if, like me, you've become more than a little obsessed with a particular colour combination. At the moment I'm drawn to anything grey and mustard (or charcoal and ochre!) and I'm finding lots of high street buys that are well within the ten pound treat budget.
This gorgeous, modern selection is from Dunelm - just click on the photographs for more product details.
I'm back - actually I haven't been away. I did plan to take a little time off in August but I didn't plan on getting the flu. Anyway I'm back in the land of the living now and the two weeks of enforced rest has at least given me some time to reflect ( and not just on how quickly the washing basket fills up when you don't do any chores for a few days)
I do write a lot about enjoying the simple things in life and a short spell of not being able to enjoy them certainly make you appreciate them even more. Having a very minor illness made me realise just how precious good health is and reinforced the necessity of self-care routines.
The two things I missed most were dog walking and coffee. My lungs still feel like they're about to burst but it is so good to be outdoors and enjoying the fresh air again. I got soaked to the skin on my first long walk - it felt great!
I know something is wrong with me if I can't face a cup of coffee and for the best part of a week, even the thought of it made me nauseous. Thankfully that wore off and the reunion was sweet. I don't think I've ever drunk coffee so mindfully as that first cup - the feel of my favourite mug in my hands, the warmth, the smell and then the taste!
Well - I'm off to put the kettle on now! Anyone want to join me for a coffee?
If you're a coffee lover, or you know someone who is, then why not do a spot of coffee break shopping. All these coffee related treats are from independent artists and makers - and they are all under £10. Just click on the photographs to visit their shops.
