It’s yet another Bank Holiday Monday in the UK, and if it’s a traditional one, chances are it’s raining… since our posts are magically scheduled in advance on holidays, we’ve no way of knowing for sure. If you’re stuck indoors for one reason or another though, take inspiration from that essential and most British accessory – the humble umbrella…

Look book! Creative Walls

2011-04-creative-walls

Whether you rustle up beans on toast from your basement flat or cook your supper on a rusty Rayburn in your country pad, your home is your castle. A book shelf always speaks a thousand words but don’t let your conversations stop there. Adorn, hang, stick up and pin, the walls of your home are just waiting for to document your goings on, real life scrapbooking. Catalogued clutter is cool.

Creative Walls – How to Display and Enjoy Your Treasures collections is a ‘living Pinterest’. This new book by Geraldine James applauds hoarders like us and says it’s ok to collect, it’s what you do with it that counts.

Hello birdy!

Whether appliquéd onto cushions, printed on curtains or fabric, birds of all shapes and sizes still dominate home style and decor and yes, we still definitely like.

These bonny lil fellas from On to Baby are made with simple birdy shapes and heart shaped bendy wire feet and we think are a little bit too nice to save for babies. Why not dip into your fav fabric stash and make up a a flock in all shapes and sizes.

 

Fresh eggs!
