Favourite Nooks and Knick Knacks Around My Home

We’ve been living in our house for around eight months now and in that time have been working hard to get it feeling more homely. The great thing about owning versus renting is that you can do pretty much whatever you want decoration-wise so before we’d even moved in we’d hung up the wallpaper to give the place more character.

I’m really in to home decor and love having a virtual snoop around other peoples homes so today I thought I’d share some of my favourite nooks and knick knacks around my own home.¬† (more…)

A Tour of Our Garden Aviary

I have wanted an aviary since I was a child and obsessed with the one in my Grandads garden. He had canaries, finches and some funny little quail at the bottom, pecking up all of the dropped seed. I can still remember it now – a rickety structure he put together with old pieces of wood and rusty chicken wire- my grandad was good at building things like that.

This year I was finally able to make my dream a reality and together Gareth and I put together an aviary in our own garden. We’ve been slowly introducing our finches to it and it’s been somewhat of a process – but now we’re very nearly at the end and so today I really wanted to share it with you and give you a little tour of the aviary and its occupants.

Let me just preface this post with a warning: this is very image heavy!

Kitsch, Kawaii & Retro- A Glimpse In To My Collections

For awhile now I’ve been toying with the idea of writing about some of my collections. Collecting is a big hobby of mine and I find a lot of joy in it – if you follow me over on Instagram you’ll probably already be quite familiar with some of the things I covet and hoard because I’m forever posting photos. But for some reason I’ve remained relatively quiet about them on my blog. I guess I didn’t think many people would be interested but as this is such a big passion of mine I thought it would be fun to write about (and photograph!) And when it’s all said and done this is my little space on the internet, I really have to stay true to myself!

So today I’m going to give you a little¬†glimpse in to my Kitsch, Kawaii and Retro collections. I can’t show you everything as I’d be here all day! But I’ll show you some of my favourite pieces and explain why I love them so!
