Max's Mummy



I blogged sometime ago about my lovely and dear friend Jo, and her creative talents - Aniseed. Jo has recently set up her own blog, chronicling her adventures as a first, sometimes bewildered, Mum. I salute her, it really does seem like the tough's job in the world; but Jo tackles it with such grace and humour, its inspiring. So with out futher ado, here is Max's Mummy!



The gorgeous couple on their wedding day in NZ, I was lucky enough to attend, it was wonderful


Max visits the Thames, I wonder if he will remember


Baby Max finally arrives, going over speed bumps really works!


The excited and slightly freaked out Jo & Richard bring Max home


adored by Mummy


and Daddy, Max is a very lucky boy.


Max recently turned one - Happy Birthday little man!

So pop over and say hi to Jo as she negotiates the joys and challenges of first time motherhood.

I am so in love with this Matthew Hilton Chair - but even at trade price, I think I will be admiring the picture only for the near future.

Hip Hotel Paris












I'm extremely fortunate to have very kind friends who let me stay with them when I visit Paris, but if I couldn't I think this is where I'd be Caron de Beaumarchais

The Colours of Toast

Blogland has been awash with the Toast autumn catalogue this last month - forgive me for adding my 2 cents worth :)











I have long been obsessed by these wonderful hand blown glasses, I might just have to buy and ship them home



now they come in colours, how fun


have been in serious love with this beige ticking bedlinen for years, simply perfection


lovely shapes and can't you just smell the beeswax - heaven


blue & green, blue & green - say no more
