Thought you might like to see this poster that was hanging locally here in Nelson last month. So sweet! It's a print of the actual stitched piece - it's quite deceiving though - looks like the original doesn't it?

Treasures under glass

I have a house full of cupboards - full of tins - full of treasures - and I bet you do too! I love knowing that I have them but I definitely forget what I have. Does that happen to you? So I love this idea of having 2 or 3 glass cloches that you display tiny vignettes of our prized miniatures in - to admire - and then swap them out for another selection when we get tired of them. This is a fun tutorial, at 2 Gypsy Girls, on how to make said displays - now where can I find those cloche(for a reasonable price?)

This gorgeous images of a french home come via Lucy Auburn's Pinterest board. They are from Cote Maison. I love all the shades of grey. Do you think it would get depressing to live in such a grey interior? I suppose this would be the perfect place to throw a handful of bright pink pillows etc to brighten things up if need be - what do you think?

Hello everyone. As advised, I spent a good 20 minutes in NEST in San Francisco at the weekend. Thank you to everyone who knows me well enough to recommend this beautiful shop to me. I love a store owner who has the confidence to step away from the normal wholesale channels and fill their shop with amazing, one of a kind pieces and vintage treasures. It is indeed a remarkable store. I have just a few pictures of NEST - but I do have lots of good street shots of San Francisco that I'm looking forward to sharing with you this week - so stay tuned :-)
