Sharing my favourite homes, food, books and sites that are currently inspiring me:

^ Reading Modern Rustic by stylist Emily Henson. A Christmas present to myself, it's full of inspiring spaces from around the world. You can check out her Pinterest boards here.

^ Spending some time chilling out with this beautiful Tumblr site Just You Wait

^ Loving the food styling and recipe ideas from the wonderful Babes in Boyland, my all time favourite Scandi blog.

^ Also on the recipe ideas front is this beautiful Spring vegetable tagliatelle. Please hurry Spring, I can't wait for asparagus season.

^ Exploring these simple evergreen wreath making workshops - perfect for any time of the year, not just the festive season.

^ Go take a read of Abigail's beautiful blog. Her photography is stunning and I'm a big fan of her vintage finds.

^ I'm completely head over heels in love with this blog - Lean and Meadow. I can't rave enough about it.

All pictures via my Pinterest feed except the top two which were taken by me. 

This Week


Monday, 26 January 2015

Hello there! It's been a very busy but fun few days here. Lots of great company, good food and new places to visit. Here is my roundup of favourite images via my Instagram feed.

^ A new door number that we need to hang. At least that's the plan, I have a feeling it will take a bit of persuasion to convince the husband to get the drill out. He's not a big fan of the old DIY.  I've been searching for a vintage French enamel door number for some time but just could never get lucky with a number five. At car boots and antique fairs I always came across lots of number fours or sevens for some reason. So in the end I bought this one. I think it will look really nice next to the dark grey door colour. (Basket is from Housekeeping Store, painting is vintage and from a carboot, painted vintage plate is from Lloyd Loves - just in case you want to know). I rather like it just propped up against the wall in the porch but that kind of defeats the purpose of having a front door number!

^ A visit to Judy's Vintage Fair in the Leeds Corn Exchange. Lots of lovely sellers although I didn't buy anything this time. Definitely worth a trip to one of the fairs if you have one near you in the next few months. I'm hoping to find a nice vintage dress for my cousin's wedding later in the year.

^  Tulips. I can't get enough of them. Last week it was hot pink, today I've bought some lilac ones. My favourite flowers of all time.

^ A meet up with some of my fellow Yorkshire Bloggers for a fantastic lunch in  Belgrave Music Hall and Canteen.  This is a great venue, totally laid back and family friendly. There were lots of kids in there and all were made completely welcome. Vintage furniture, squishy sofas, enamel lighting - my kind of pub. And what an amazing roof garden! Spectacular views of the city and little sheds with fairy lights to sit in on a chilly day. The pizza was great too.

Hope you have all had a good week too. x
