Listen to the rain

Let it soothe your spirit. Smell the freshness. Hear the patterns. See the cleansing. The way trees and plants drink it in. Feel the renewal.

Bee happy ...... Christmas photo shoot

I wanted to share some good news with you.
 
Last week my home was styled and photographed all dressed for Christmas by the lovely Naomi Jones and Robert Sanderson.
 
This is a little sneaky peak of one of the shots taken.
 
It was an amazing day and I can't wait to see the photos.
 
Look out next year for more photos in a home magazine for Christmas 2015!

Bee happy .... make an advent gift calender

I have been busy gathering little gifts, presents and sweet treats for making our Christmas advent calendar this year.
 
This years colours are grey and white and the bags will be sealed with this cute star washi tape.
 
I found these numbered stickers on Pinterest and printed them off onto A4 sticker paper.
 
Each bag will be numbered for a little treat each day in December.
 
 
What advent are you having this year?

Bee happy ....... visit the flower market

Who loves going to the flower market?
 
I visited out local market this morning and found these beautiful vintage style roses at £1 a bunch.
 
I quickly snapped up the last 3 bunches!
 
 
I love roses when they are looking a little faded and shabby, they have so much character!

 
Hope you all have a happy weekend!

Bee happy ..... kitchen settee renovation is finished

Do you remember these fabrics which I shared with you?
 
They were for updating my kitchen settee, in the end I used them all.
 
 
I am really pleased with the finished look and the dogs love it too!
 
I painted the frame in Annie Sloan Old White and stitched together a section of fabric pieces to make one larger piece for the bottom.

 
I used my trusty staple gun and glue gun and added a little more padding to make it softer to sit on.

Bee happy ...... update a settee

I have had this lovely settee for a while now in the kitchen but it was looking quite dirty (from the dogs) and the woodwork was yellowing so I thought it was time for a make over.
 

 
These are the fabrics I have chosen to recover with, now the hard work begins ......

Bee happy ...... hang up a dress

I was out shopping recently in the sales and came across this pretty dress.
 
It's not an everyday dress with the beading detail and net skirt but is so lovely it seems a shame to hide it away.
 
I decided to use a pretty hook and hang it on the bedroom wall as art.
 


 
I can admire it everyday now.
