this and that this week!

I honestly dont know where the weeks are going at the moment! We seem to be racing towards easter at a rate of knots!

we have been very busy getting some pretty mothers day orders out to customers.

I am hoping this year for some little succulents for mothers day this year rather than the traditional flowers. I am loving these little plants so much at the moment!

i am sure the colours of this little plant that i photographed at wild at heart in london must have inspired the colour for our new colour way of chinoiserie chalk, - watch this space lots of lovely colours to be added to the website over the next week or two!


Australian florist  Helen Leighton (who i had the pleasure of meeting last year) has a fabulous pinboard of succulent wedding ideas on pinterest. I love the idea of them in mixed bouquets.

…….talking of flowers and all things mothers day, my lovely friend Paul from the fabulous florist Petal to the Metal, is popping up in Paul Smiths iconic flagship store in Londons Floral St this weekend. London followers will be able to nip into Paul Smith store and pick up a fabulous mothers day bunch. If you can 't make it to london then you can follow Paul on pinterest or instagram .

I am yearning for a bit of sunshine at the moment and keep thinking about holidays. When my lovely parents in law were alive we used to meet them in Sicily every year for a week in october, my father in law was the vicar of the anglican church in Taormina in October each year! So i really enjoyed reading Liz from the red bistro blog post about a recent trip to Sicily. Her photos really do encapsulate the unspoilt beauty of Sicily.


Liz is an amazing cook who lives in Malta, you can follow her blog here, its a little ray of sunshine on a wintery day!


Hope you all have a fun filled weekend, and a happy mothers day to all of the lovely mummies out there .
