Beautiful Summer Bank Holiday. Pimms. A drive in EMI (our VW Beetle) through the country and a long walk. (I also got bitten by a wasp again – the third time in a month!).






Have a great Bank Holiday weekend everyone! I am planning a picnic on one of the hopefully better days this weekend…i am loving the good weather but dare I say it looking forward to some winter nights with an excuse to snuggle up with a good book! Any one else???

I leave you with some inspiration by A View To – great little postcards of colour themed objects. So fun to do yourself.





Sorry for the lack of posts due to hot weather, catching up on Desperate Romantics and general laziness!

* Currently reading The 19th Wife by David Ebershoff – a novel about religious polygamy.

* Had mushroom soup and finger sandwiches at Liberty’s tearoom yesterday.

* Also – spotted my dream road to live in featured in the Desperate Romantics (Lizzie Siddal’s family lived here) – Roupell St in Waterloo which is always featured in period dramas. Imagine living there!

Yesterday was too good a day to stay in and work so we wandered around Brick Lane and Spitalfields taking in the sun. I stopped off at some amazing shops on Brick Lane that were like pieces of art themselves…Comfort Station which sells modern Victoriana inspired jewellery all displayed in Bell Jars and old suitcases, Luna and Curious a bright white shop brimming with curious gifts and Mar Mar Co selling Danish design delicacies!

We stopped off for an early supper at St.John’s Bread and Wine in Spitalfields…for good old plain British fare inspired by the ‘make-do and mend’ era. The interiors are beautiful and Jane Eyer-esque (sombre). Please excuse the camera-phone images, I wanted to capture the moment but didnt have my usual camera. We ate Smoke Mackrel and Pickled Red Cabbage, Potted Pork and Pickles and Stinking Bishop and Potatoes (an oozy cheese with boiled potatoes and spring onions).
