    Christmas Joy

    I’m not going to write gift guides or how to decorate your home this festive season.  What I am going to do however is wish you all a very Merry Christmas what ever way you decorate or what ever you buy I’m sure you will have a wonderful time no matter what. I am looking forward to slowing down, spending precious time with my loved ones and having a thoroughly decadent few days. Happy Holidays let the festivities begin Jx (Images via Pinterest)

    Winter Hues

    It’s mid January, not a month I particularly cherish once the Christmas holiday glow subsides I find it hard to get motivated but I’m also not one to start mentioning Spring right now either.  I want to find peace with the darkest days of Winter before looking toward the light and warmth that Spring brings. I try and find ways to embrace the grey skies and bleak corners, making moments of magic and enjoyment when I can.  Warming food that nurtures and drinks that warm your belly.  Setting the table for evening meals with lovely cutlery and special ceramics to beat the Winter blues.  Layer the sofa and your bed…

    Winter Mood

    The light and mood of the beginning of the year always seems bleak and a bit dark, I find myself struggling with it, always have.  I’ve found it rather hard to get going this week, an empty diary a birthday passed and the death of two geniuses filling my thoughts.  I’ve not had the notion, inspiration or light to be able to take any images.  To be honest maybe I need a few weeks of being kind to myself and not trying to strive for something I’m not even quite sure I know what is to be truthfully honest.
