Matt Pugh Design

I have just discovered Matt Pugh courtesy of Mrs Eliot Books and his work is excellent. I have seen his owl in Heals already and lusted after it, his lamps are also very covetable, well it's all beautiful really!

See for yourself.

A post from Bloesem Living

I have just seen this August post over at Bloesem Living: Let's Get Personal in New Zealand with Ellen Giggenbach. I had to post some of the pictures, it is such a great home and the sort of place I aspire to - she has lots of colourful things, it is a visual feast for the eye! It has made my Tuesday so thank you Bloesem and Ellen Giggenbach! (Who I am now following and this is her website) Read all about her approach to her home over at the brilliant Bloesem blog.

Jonathan Adler's first UK store!

I was very happy when I saw in Elle Decoration that Jonathan Adler is opening a store in London! I still won't be able to afford much of his stuff but at least I can go and look at it! It will be in Sloane Avenue in South Kensington and opens on 1st October. Hoorah. Here are a few pieces from his website that I particularly like. To quote him:

We believe minimalism is a bummer.

We believe you should throw out your Blackberry and go and pick some actual blackberries.

We believe that your home should make you happy.

I really like the enthusiasm of Leona on the Thrift-ola website, she is brilliant! To quote her:

"Thrift-ola is the thrifting and crafting adventure I’ve always dreamt of.  For most my life I’ve dressed and decorated my home with odd stuff found at a flea market, charity shop, jumble, car boot sale, junk yard, swap party, church bazaar – any place peddling second hand goods. I love the look and feel of old things, I feel an immense satisfaction when spotting the Made in England stamp but mostly I just don’t like having the same stuff as everyone else."

I agree! Especially with the last line. Have a look round her site, it's very good and it looks great! (Images are of items for sale on her site.)

Biscuit tins, apples and more...

Recently I have been... wrapping apples in newspaper and packing them into wooden trays. We have 3 apple trays and they are overflowing with apples! In the last 24 hours, approx. 30 fell off the trees, this is a normal day and these are the apples we have to throw away! We plan to make cider and I am going to try cooking them tonight even though they are eating apples. Does anyone have any good apple recipes?

I also recently bought some brilliant biscuit tins from Marks & Spencer - one in the shape of a large jammy dodger and the other in the shape of a large bourbon. I bought a custard cream one last year and am v pleased they have brought out more! I thought it was possibly just me who was weirdly excited by this but when I posted photos on Instagram, I got a very excited response from fellow Instagramers! Who'da thought?

Some more recent Instagram pics below (one showing a small brass mouse I bought for a bargain price on eBay recently!)
