I have been reading Holly Becker's blog for some time now & cannot wait to get my hands on her new book, recently launched at Liberty London. It only took a mere glimpe at her recent post & I was instantly in love. Incredible table styling, such fine detail! I have been a big fan of Liberty fabric for a long, long time & this just brought it all together.
During my 12mths in London I visited the Liberty of London store maybe once a fortnight! It could only be described as my 'Holly Golightly' moment . . . when dreary, cold, lonely, damp(a little over-board?)London became too much & weaved its way into my normally happy disposition I would make my way here & within minutes the shiny, sparkly, printed, patent, wares on the ground floor would ALWAYS make me feel good. Sadly, the purchases were slim . . .it was often a choice . . .should I have meat for dinner at all this week or could I sacrifice & buy earrings instead!
And just in case you love the print as much as I do . . .
Love Tina xo

|Wallpaper - The Ultimate Guide|
A friend of mine recently mentioned she has decided to wallpaper the inside of her cupboard- what a fantastic idea! I love the way wallpaper can dramatically change a space.

We're going on a road trip for a few days . . . (not sure how successful this will be with a crawling 7mth old!)
I hope you have a lovely Easter break & I'll see you again when we are back at home.
Fingers crossed the antique shops are well stocked & open over the holiday!

It is no secret. Etsy & I are in a firm, committed relationship.
We hit it off immediately & have been inseparable for the past 2 years. We get on like a house on fire.
Etsy always remembers my 'favourite' things, makes me feel great on an otherwise ordinary day & brings interest & colour to my life. I'd say we are soul mates.
And to think, I receive all of this passionate love & I only had to give a few insignificant numbers on my credit card.
Etsy, I can't see a future that does not include you.

My latest project 'The Playgroup Room' is nearly finished . . apart from a floor rug & wallpaper (not in the budget just yet!).
Last weekend I won this little black rattan chair on eBay. What a steal! I have decided to lacquer it in the Honeysuckle colour I posted about a few weeks ago.
And cover the seat cushion in this green trellis fabric.
I'm hoping it will look bright & quirky with the mix of Floral, Spot, Stripe, Ikat & now Geometric fabric.
The only thing I really need now is industrial strength scotchguard!
More pictures to follow in a few days.
|My latest Ebay purchase|
And here are some fabric/wallpaper patterns I love!
Even though it is everywhere I always stop for a second look at anything in this Imperial Trellis pattern.
