I recently purchased a new couch for our lounge - it is a turquoise velvet Chesterfield and I love it! We had a dark brown leather couch for ages, which was handy with very young kids in the house, but now that my children are old enough to mind where their dirty feet are going...I thought I would splash out on something I love! I have also had lots of fun filling my new couch with beautiful cushions. Now the only bit I have to worry about is stopping Bella the pugalier from jumping up on it! All these images can be found on my pinterest board and my instagram feed.
I recently had the pleasure of a photographer and a journalist being in my home for an upcoming article (which I will post about once published). This gave me a great excuse for updating a few items in my home, spending hours styling it and putting out lots of lovely flowers. It was nice to have a pretty, clean and photo worthy home, even if only for a few hours! I took a few shots myself before it all returned to the normal mess. You can view the rest of the images on my flickr stream here or my pinterest board here.
I have a board on pinterest called, just beautiful. The images don't have a specific category but are so lovely I want to keep looking at them. Here are a few- enjoy. All links to these images can be found on my pinterest board. Link with love. Happy Friday to you all! P x
Our little puglier - Bella! Hand made cards from my girls Enjoying my delicious cake! Gifts - vintage glass bottles More hand made cards More gifts - vintage tea cups Flowers from family abroad and more lovely cards
I celebrated my (39th) birthday on the 24th of Jan. I must say I felt very blessed. The sun was shining, I received plenty of lovely messages and warm wishes from friends and family, beautiful hand made cards, flowers, gifts (vintage finds and art materials, the way to my heart!). I enjoyed a delicious home made chocolate cake and we ended the day with a meal out at our local Thai restaurant. Bliss. The next day bought even more excitement when we picked up our new little puppy - Bella. She is a puglier (cross between a Pug and Cavalier Spaniel) and we are all besotted.
