well hello there! + thank you for bearing with me.

has it really been 2 months plus since i put finger to keyboard here? it feels longer in some ways...but i am very much ready to type type type again + as it's been a while i thought i'd make a fresh start.

tomorrow you'll find me at my new home...if you'd like to join me once more i would be delighted to welcome you over. hope to see you soon xxx

i can't help but notice that the gaps between my posts are getting bigger these days...the words fewer too...so i've decided to take some time away from this space. only a little interval but just so's i can free up my feelings + come back when spring is in full sprint + i have more focus.

thank you for all the lovely comments that you leave for me...i've become particularly bad at responding to them but each + every one really makes my day.

see you back here soon...xxx

loving these delicate colours
+ enjoying the ritual in preparing healthy feasts

taking some quiet time
cosy indoors with my friend mr b

whilst the stormy rain
beats on the windows

thank you for all the lovely comments on the last post...i did feel frozen once or twice lately but have thawed out nicely. i think the chilly weather put me into hibernation mode : )

since my unplanned absence i am now sat looking at a blank screen thinking "how/what to come back with?"...for today it's just a few things i've done/seen/liked over the past week or so.

got all excited at the arrival of a new nephew (little noel)

bought a new blue fridge
ate ham cooked in cola (trashy i know but so good!)
for mother's day
i like this top from tulip + nettle
(the blue gingham has a spring vibe no?)

listened to this by the whitest boy alive in my car
...a good driving song

covered a mini-mannequin
in bits of cath kidston catalogue for my mum
fell in love with fanja's lumi dolls

i've also been happy to see jodie posting again over at vintage film...go see this beauty of a dress on her blog along with some wonderful polaroids...she's going to share some of her collection of vintage clothing over the next few weeks + i plan to join in to show mine too : )

my list of new blog posts to read is bursting at the seams. everyone is being good. i have been bad + have also neglected my 366 project on flickr...it needs a serious update! oh well...tomorrow is another day. xxx

blogging about a fridge? a case of from the sublime (baby noel) to the ridiculous i know! but the colour does make me smile when i see it standing in our kitchen + it's so good not to have to go outside to fetch the milk in every time we make a cup of tea!

still chilly here!
some call it a haw frost
some said it was snowing
but the local weather lady told us
it's official name is diamond dust
