Something for 2010....

But the search ends here, where the night is totally clear, and your heart is fierce, so you now finally know, that you control where you go..... you can steer

so hold this feeling like a newborn, oh and freedom surging through your veins, you have opened up a new door, so bring on the wind, fire and rain

Well, that's me and the blog for the year pretty peeps. Time to have some serious time out, re group and I'll see you in 2010. Thank you so much for popping by, I'm pretty lucky me thinks, and always incredibly grateful.

Enjoy your time with family and friends as we celebrate the silly season and I look forward to catching up again in the New Year xx

Christmas came early!

Up there with receiving flowers and phone conversations with my two year old goddaughter Ruby, I LOVE getting mail. Even better, parcels. So it was like Christmas had come early when I received the most gorgeous parcel in the post from Miss French Navy last week. A stunning collection of her new stationary with fabulous lined envelopes (the ultimate indulgence) - I'm in 7th heaven! - Visit her website to see more of her fabulous designs, I'm loving the alphabet range - personalised cards without the personalised price! The perfect Christmas gift don't you think? Thank you Miss FN! xx

No longer in denial...

Don't get me wrong. I love the silly season. I just couldn't quite believe it was already here. But as clients at work start wishing me 'merry christmas', family start going 'what on earth do you want for christmas' and you have four (yes four.....) Christmas parties to attend this weekend, there is seriously no more room for denial. Have a lovely one xx via mary ruffle.... squeal!

Happy Hamptons

I've decided on one simple new years resolution for 2010. New York. And after seeing these photos from The Selby of Fulvia Farolfi's home in the Hamptons, maybe I better throw in the Hamptons for good measure.

Christmas Copenhagen Style...

Creams, whites, greys and hints of colour. Damn they do it well. Guess who? - Marianne Brandi and Keld Mikkelson, rented! If I had an entry way as stunning as this to display a Christmas tree I would be celebrating all year round. Loving that lounge - I would seriously never leave the couch (for something new and totally different....)

Where are the images from? - living etc magazine. Of course.

Stop the Press.

The Truffle Girls have my heart. I used to stalk in a scary way Mary Ruffle's tumblr and Karey's Mackin Ink, so I nearly lost the plot entirely when they come together at The Sweeterie. But wait. It gets better. The Shoppe. Yes, you can buy one of their sweet treats for your very own. But um, I may have just bought three, and plan to buy more, so I'll race you there! x
