So last week I did a thing.
A getting married kinda thing 👰🏼💒🤵🏻.
It was lovely and a whirlwind and I’m sad it’s all over but it does mean I no longer have an excuse to ignore my lack of crojo and must get back on it.
I’m starting with finishing some W.I.P’s as that always inspires me to make new things however not today as today I managed to remember the W.I.P but forget the hooks 🤦🏻♀️ I’m clearly out of practise and now being taunted by wool I can’t use while sat at the tiny humans ballet 😬
The shutters on our bedroom window are louvred, the slats are angled downwards, filtering out the morning light to a soft grey glow.
It is impossible really to see the weather properly until you throw them open to reveal the sky in its full glory.
But yesterday morning I had a sense that something magical was happening behind those slats. I tentatively opened the shutters and then began to throw on clothes as fast as I could.
There was sunrise, and mist, birdsong, and dew sparkling everywhere. We walked (me, the dog and Rufus - who always loves an early morning ramble), soaking in the sounds, breathing in the freshest air, watching the light filter through the trees and over the meadows.
We talked about flowers and insects, and I waffled on about light. At times we walked in brief silence, with just the distant, comforting, rumble of Alain’s tractor interrupting the birds.
The dog gave futile chase to a hare in the woods and we looked in vain for the white tails of the deer flashing through the leaves.
It was over too soon, this magical, early morning walk of ours. It’s like meditation, a bath of restorative sound, light and air offered only to those who get up early enough to seek it.

When you can never find celeriac in the supermarkets there is only one this for it... grow you own! 😄
Peyton is also growing some sweet peas and pumpkins that she got in a kids little growers pack from @wyevalegc and we’ve got some strawberries 🍓, tomatoes 🍅 , parsley 🌱mint 🌿(for the gin obviously😉) chives 🌱and rosemary 🌿growing too.
For today only you can get your little paws on this hand painted and hand cut watercolour balloon artwork.
The rainbow is also hand painted and there is even a sparkly little star hiding 🌟
Drop me a message if you would like to give this beautiful cut a new home.
Please note is available for a fiver unframed 💕
It's election day here in the UK: yet another one clouded by anxiety and fear of what our country is becoming. Remember to breathe, to feel the sun on your skin and the ground underfoot. There is still good in the world, generosity, and compassion no matter how the vote goes today. Whatever your preferences please do vote.
Passion Pit IS light ✨ @passion_pit this past friday at @thedanforthmusichall. article and photos NOW up on @soundbitesmedia.
personal note: I was beyond thrilled to not only photograph, but see PP. I've been a fan since Manners came out and have been wanting to see his show for years. So happy.
This is my all time favourite corner of the house at the moment 😍 it’s just waiting for a window seat cushion on the bench which is to the right and then it’s the perfect reading/working nook 📚
I am still on the hunt for just the right chair to go with the bureau though, it needs to be tall/supportive enough to sit and work in but I really want an armchair style seat there 🤔
hello lovelies .. a week ago i spent a lovely morning @labmpls with my daughter learning from @sweetalouette how to create a floral arrangement .. it was sensory overload at its best .. a room full of beautiful blooms, bright sunshine, a heady floral aroma, happy chatter, yummy snacks and time with my girl .. we each came home with our very own creations .. 💐🌷💐

It was the hardest thing I’ve done not to infill this cut with bold and bright rainbow colours, opting for softer pastels instead but I’m glad I did now it’s finished 😍
Sometimes it’s good to challenge yourself to go against the norm and get out of your comfort zone 🙌🏻
I had a really interesting chat with @sarah.simple.moments - she’s an Insta expert - and it got me thinking about the content I post. I know this is really boring for some people but for those of you who don’t mind, could you answer a few questions for me please? .
Do you enjoy reading captions or do you prefer to scroll through? Do images or captions stop you in your tracks? Do you like Insta posts to have meaning and encourage you to answer a question or tag a friend? Do you take part in hashtag challenges? .
I finished a few of my crochet W.I.P’s and have finally started something new but as it’s still at that unrecognisable and not very photogenic stage I can’t share it just yet.
I have however finished this paper cut fish 🐠 it needs some finishing touches but she’s already a very pretty lady 💗
