gold works well in a traditional setting

Why not fabric in your living room

H & G

Hope & Glory (my shop!) still wrapping my brain around that; well the blog has had a mini makeover, major make over to come, my very talented and lovely graphic designer friend is working her magic - so exciting! But in the meantime I've done a re-jig and freshen up, which is an improvement I think, so check it out and let me know your thoughts. Comments on H&G are now open to all, weirdly it was set to only followers before, so I do apologise, v annoying I'm sure.

Thought I'd give you a quick round up of some of the lovelies that have recently rolled in the door.....

Hiliarious Babushka Skipping ropes + friends and the cute apple card sets

gorgeous glamorous 70's gold dessert glasses

sparkly glasses & crystal bowls
great new range of jewellery

beautiful cards by the very talented NZ artist Rochelle Andrews
not new but on a rolling rotation all the wonderful fabrics I bought back from the U.K with me
and yes there is Cath Kidston hand & body products - can you imagine my excitement!!!

and how pretty do they look - swoon
To see more mooch over to Hope & Glory

Have a great weekend!

Winter Warmers

Just cos its mid winter and chilly on this side of the world, doesn't mean we can't rug up stylishly!

rich and inviting, coffee sacks are def cool

green can be warm, warming it up with velvet and wood, I have green on two walls at the shop, I love it

rockin' the plaid, I have a similar one on my bed at the moment

what can't a plaid blanket do? Plus a fabulous head board helps :)

not just the fire, but the books make the room feel cosy - I adore the colours

imagine staying in this bedroom - wonderful

as a rule I don't do camping, but I could do this!
keep cosy!
