Lovely lavender 

I've been reading the Ruby Red Shoes books to little Lottie and we absolutely love the beautiful description of Ruby's cost caravan. Cups of tea, books to read and cozy blankets to cuddle up in.  It really reminds me of the atmosphere I try to create in our home with lots of cushions, books, handmade... Continue Reading →


Another year begins…

And with it comes new goals and a refreshed sense of purpose. I was lucky enough to receive an oil painting set from my husband for Christmas.
