daffodils.... spring has finally sprung

I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o'er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a croud,
A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.
William Wordsworth 1804

The sign of spring has finally arrived, with Easter hot on its heels, you only have to look outside for inspiration this year. Nature awakens in Spring, with daffodils, tulips & snow drops peaking out beneath the crisp dewy grass.

Every year I am inspired by a huge cherry blossom tree that grows in my mothers garden, its simply majestic. The mass of pink looks so romatic and warming and then falls like natures confetti covering the surrounding area in a bed of subtle pink petals. This is the time you can find me outside, desperatly taking cuttings and trying to re-create this little bit of natural art into my home. (it never last long though and seem to spend most of my time collecting petals off the floor!)

This season we have tried to incorporate this freshness into some of our new products with the introduction of artificial sprigs and branches that look so realistic even gardeners approve! I have asked a few!

So take a look and maybe add a few, we have popped them in a country earthenware jug, mixed into twig lights to refresh...... so versatile they can go in any room x

storing notes, ideas, recipes.......

Bits of important paper, cut outs of recipes your planning to try, an old butty box being used as a sewing box store........ we house all our bits and pieces in the most random ways, never sure where they are when we need them! Well maybe its time to get a bit of organisation into your life with a spring clean and a tidy system of storing?

Keep all those recipes together, build up a useful and exciting collection of family recipes that can never be lost, cut outs of magazines that you simply cannot part with.... collect and give as a lovely gift for a child's first home or departure for university.

What about a stunning guest book? Brilliant idea if you have a home or cottage that you rent out or allow friends to use. Feed back is always productive! Alternatively, what about having one in the guest room of your home, it will allow friends over the years to let you know about brilliant times spent with you and over the years grow into a diary for you to reminisce on the fun you have had.

An address box to keep all your contacts up to date and again a great University send off gift so your children, nieces, nephews or grandchildren can always contact you xx

That Tupperware box that you have kept your sewing needles, pins and cotton in for the last 10 years really has done you proud. However why not treat yourself and upgrade to a more stylish sewing box.

The other things we tend to keep in tupperware boxes around the house that we can never place our hands on when we need them, the first aid kit! Why not have a look at our stylish storeage boxes, with a traditional theme, these boxes are perfect for knowing exactly what you are short of and where the plasters are when scrapes and accidents happen.

As for your shoes, surely that polish, clothes and brushes deserve a new home? This stylish wooden shoe box is a perfect gift for your dad, husband, brother or grandad. In fact anyone that likes to look after themselves and seems to have everything already! This is a perfect gift that will be appreciated for years to come.

welcome in the spring

Spring is beginning to show signs that its finally here. The charms of spring with pale early blossom, nascissi and daffodils are shooting out of the garden and signalling it's time to throw open the door and invite the crisp colours and vibrant fresh feeling into the home.

All aspects of Spring including the fresh romantic singing birds and subtle blossom flowers are going to feature heavily in the coming years interiors.
Check out some of the products that are inspiring us this spring xxxx

With nights getting lighter, we are starting to look at ways we can use our gardens this year to the maximum. Introducing decorative wall art and solar lighting can help create ambiance, enhancing our outdoor pleasure and encouraging alfresco dining and entertaining.
