Chalet Style!

I have just spent a really lovely weekend in Switzerland (well, still here actuall, flying back to London tonight!) and with winter fast approaching, I have felt the need to hibernate. And where would I like to hibernate? In this gorgeous chalet in Courchevel in the French Alps of course! I love those stripped back wooden beams with super modern finishing touches.

Sunshine Yellow!

Sunshine yellow is my favourite colour, so imagine my delight when I saw my butterfly pendant featured in this gorgeous Treasury on Etsy. Thank you FlashForward!

Here is a quick snap of me and my sister preparing for another photoshoot for my Etsy shop (me-brown hair, Emily- blond!). I feel like I'm always trying to improve my photos, however, I think these ones have turned out too dark... any comments welcome!

A Winter's Tale....

It seems to be getting so dark so quickly in London at the monent! I really feel that not just autumn, but winter too is setting in really quickly.

It's a cold, sunny, crisp day and for some reason I got to thinking about one of my favourite artists, Ben Nicholson. I love his pale, muted colours and his technique of layering complentary colours on top of each other then a really simple line drawing of some everyday object like a cup or a bottle. I also particularly love his tree landscapes which really capture the feeling of a wintery frost in the countryside.
Here is a little montage of some of my favourites!

I am SO sorry for my total lack of communication over the last couple of weeks! A combination of a really busy period at work plus coming to New York to spend nearly 2 weeks with boyfriend have resulted iv very little time spent on my Etsy shop and on my blog.... I've missed it!

Hopefully back to normal from this weekend as I want to start posting some of the cool pictures I have taken in NYC and will return to London (sniff sniff!) on Monday night.

Hope you are all well! What's everyone been up to in the last couple of weeks?!

Le Tour de Londres!

I love a good cycle at the weekend and this Sunday just gone was no different! My sister, her husband and I took to the streets of London (under very grey skies!) for a good 3 hour cycle down to Hampton Court, 500 year old palace and former home of England's most famous tyrant King Henry VIII - yes, the one that chopped off his wives' heads!

Here comes the bride!

I just came across this fab shop on Etsy - Letters4lilly which sells wedding bouquets made from buttons. I've never seen anything quite like this before, I think it's such a great idea! Now, I just need to get engaged!

New Hair Comb...

I just listed this new hair comb a couple of days ago... a little bit of a different style for me. The little gold rosebuds are so fiddly to make but hopefully the end result is worth it! Feedback welcome - do you like the added gold flowers or do you think the hair combs look better with just the rose ribbons?
