Hello there Frenchies!
I am in love with anything starry, and I believe it should be loved all year round! I have put together a few of my favourite things I have spotted online (and some I own!) that I think you will also love!
These would make great presents for Christmas for your near and dear or as a little treat for yourself anytime.
I have the starry pyjamas and they are so comfortable, and an excellent price. I am in love with everything from Hush, have a look at the matching items too I am sure you will approve.
Have you spotted anything online you think I would love?
Hey Frenchies, this is one for the Gin lovers this evening, inspired by GBBO I thought I would treat you all to a cake. x Continue reading

There is nothing I find more satisfying than faffing about at the weekend and creating a little pretty display in my home.
i just love the term ‘Vignette’ in French it means ‘little vine’ but in the context of interior design (and in my head) it basically means pulling items together in a balanced and pretty little composition.
Today I want to share some tips on how to create a table vignette (or any surface be it a windowsill, coffee table or the top of the microwave which my brother in law always has a giggle at).
In my home the colour base is simple; Grey, white and cream. So the absolute joy of that is, I can add in seasonal colour or ‘trend led’ pieces quite easily.
You do not have to spend a fortune, its all about how you put it together.
This vignette above was on my kitchen island a few months back.
The above was an example of a bedside table display I had.
And the third much to my brother in law James’ delight is the top of my microwave.
As you can see from the three images there are key themes emerging,
- Variation in height
- Variation in objects
First thing to do is find your focal piece (Lamp, flowers, picture) this ideally should be your item to add height.
Second on the list, layer. I like using books or a granite board as a shelf, arranging the items giving a variation of height.
Thirdly- have fun with it! Don’t get too bogged down in the detail, the aim of the game is adding all your favourite little pieces together, standing back and admiring them.
For even more inspiration, head over to Pinterest and see what the truly creative people are up to- honestly it really does blow my mind how creative people are!
I will leave you with a few images that caught my eye on Pinterest, and remember to share your creations with me!
Ok, so there’s one thing to need to know about me. I’m potty about pots. Not just any in particular, the amazing works of art that are Emma Bridgewater.
I can’t really put my finger on it.
I just love the quirky designs, they are fresh modern and most importantly, feminine!
I could quite happily spend my entire months salary on it. My favourite thing to do is to trawl Instagram and look at other people’s collections, the few people who spring to mind are @gillyandmac and @kittyray85 they both have collections I’m incredibly envious of…maybe some day.
Some people get the obsession some don’t, all I know is that I have a feeling that I don’t plan to quit any time soon!!
