Elephant Pillow Covers

How cute are these!

10X16 Blue Elephant Pillow

I love the photography too – super simple. Theoretically they are for kids, but I think they would translate into a grownups space as well.

If I had…

….£295 spare, I would treat myself to one of these. Sigh.

For the love of all things sacred, someone who is a size S buy this belt.  In fact, I’ll buy it for you. IT HAS PINEAPPLES ON IT

Can you believe it.

Did I mention?  PINEAPPLES!

Vintage Vision Fashion Show in Abergavenny

It would be a crime to miss it!  It’s going to be a fantastic event, the frocks are gorgeous and there is the ubiquitous shopping opportunity afterwards. (hooray!)
You can purchase your tickets in advance at the Vintage Vision shop in Abergavenny, or contact me for tickets –

Fireplace Before and After

I found some before pictures the other day. Our fireplace before:

In this picture we had already put a coat of white paint on the walls (formerly mustard) and the wood (formerly orange-stained).

Below is the Living Room now.

The grate in the fireplace is apparently an original bedroom sized grate.  The fire places upstairs have been covered up, but it seems that someone moved one of the grates into the downstairs fireplace first. 

I’m hoping to make more use of the open fire this year, now that we are rid of the pesky Jackdaws (and then made extra sure they don’t come back).

Looking at it now I’m pleased with it.  It’s easy to forget how far you’ve come, and to become obsessed with details you don’t like.

Yes, the top shelf houses my collection of Jilly Coopers books. Judge me.

Rainy Week Ahead

Mr Weatherman today predicted a rainy week.  Not so great for the Ryder Cup.  To cheer you up on a rainy day, now in the shop:
