What Is Love?

Posted by Kirsten Bridge on

Valentine's day looms and we are persuaded that in 365 days this is the big one for romance... hearts, flowers, cards and champagne. We have plenty of suggestions if you are seeking the ideal gift for your loved one, just take a look in our Valentine's Day range, pop into our little shop or telephone us and we will be more that delighted to help you choose something ideal, but this blog isn't actually about buying gifts at all... I love grand gestures as much as the next person but really, truthfully it's the small gestures that touch me.  Recently...

The Season of Mist & Mellow Fruitfulness...

Posted by Kirsten Bridge on

  Autumn returns after a chaotic and not entirely seasonal summer and the busy stretch to Christmas begins!! Early September dawns and the arrival of more trade shows and the discovery of more little gems in amongst the plethora of suppliers and products. Our commitment to discovering the "Best of British" design is as strong as ever in this wonderfully patriotic year. We were particularly delighted to find new ranges from all four corners of the British Isles, so from South Devon to Mid Wales, Norfolk to South East Scotland and with a quick jaunt over the Irish Sea (metaphorically...

A Season Of Celebrations

Posted by Kirsten Bridge on

The Queen's Diamond Jubilee, the arrival of the Olympic flame on our shores and the celebration of our first birthday at our shop... early summer promises to be the season of champagne toasting, bunting hanging and Union Jack waving! May has been a riot of large cardboard boxes arriving from our favourite suppliers based all over the UK; fabulous new bedding in stripy tones, on-trend, lightweight summer scarves incorporating floral, polka dot and star print designs, practical enamelware kitchen and garden lines and of course one or two items with more than a nod towards our royal leader.  The Jubilee...

Message to All Mums

Posted by Kirsten Bridge on

It's been a busy week, in a busy month, in a busy year and tomorrow it's Mother's Day. My own, precious Mum won't be sharing the day with us as she is returning from much needed holidays, so for the first time since arrival of no1 child nearly nine years ago, we will be celebrating Mothers Day for me!  Cake?... I hope so, ideally homemade and the more "boldly" decorated by my precious boys, the better.  Cards? Once again homemade rules and glitter is essential. Flowers are always a winner, but picked in the garden and presented with a joyfully...

Happy New Year!

Posted by Kirsten Bridge on

 Crikey, the second week of 2012 already, that first one passed in a blur! January is the traditional time for so many slightly scary resolutions so I thought I would share a few... 1. Make resolutions that are actually practical 2. Kick the caffeine habit or at least beat it into a manageable daily number 3. Rediscover "feel good" 80's and 90's music and get dancing around the kitchen, ideally with the children... think Deacon Blue, classic "first time around" Take That, Erasure, Wham (yes really) and Whitney Houston  4. Experiences not objects - family camping weekends, concerts, walking on...
