Hello! So blossom season is nearly over and I couldn’t not write about my favourite time in the UK - when all the beautiful blousy blossom is on the trees - little pink and white fluffy clouds. My favourite thing about the UK is the seasons - getting cosy in front of an open fire in the winter, the signs of awakening and renewal in the Spring, the longer and lighter evening with BBQs in the Summer and the stunning colours of the Autumn. Spring has to be my favourite though, and it inspires me in all that I do…Read More
If you follow me on Instagram, you will know that I love flowers. I feature them heavily, love to have fresh flowers as much as possible and my favourite gift is a bouquet full of soft and pretty blooms.

In December’s Perfect Wedding magazine, I was lucky enough to have a double-page feature, showcasing a styled wedding shoot I worked on back in the summer. This shoot was designed to inspire readers to use vintage at their weddings in a fresh and modern way, and to provide some inspirational images for styling your wedding reception. Want to take a peek at more of the images? Here is the wedding table design I put together and next week will be the dessert dresser and table plan…Read More
I love vintage (obviously and phew, you say - it would be silly doing what I did if I didn't!) for many reasons - for its character, history, charm, stories behind the pieces, design details, and I just don't believe modern pieces are the same in quality and sophistication. But another reason I love vintage is that it means a lot of different things to different people...Read More

My house is full to the brim of vintage bits & bobs, a lot being decor but mostly at the moment it is full of my hiring items! In the cupboards, on display, in my external storage unit, in the shed... you name it there is a place for my vintage treasures. When you do a job like mine you can't help but look out for treasure wherever you go. If I pop to the shops, I have a nose in a charity shop, if I'm going to a boot sale I keep my eyes peeled for vintage knick-knacks that will make perfect props. And if I'm away for a weekend or even visiting friends & families, I scout out the towns for pretty shops & cafes for vintage inspiration and possible purchases...Read More
