The Devil is in the Detail





I am really drawn to this colour palette, I just don't have the discipline - I'm too much of a sucker for a splash of rose or moss green, without being too country that is. Modern rustic is the term used by Notebookmagazine.com where I sourced these lovely images, and I do like the ecletic mix this suggests. It has that homey feel without committing too much to one style or age. I like!

Phroaw!

At least today hasn't been as hot as the last two, I've never been much good at adapting to the change of seasons and this has really sent me a little loopy. I hope Iam not too old for it but I may need some really cute bobby pins to stop me going completely mad as I jump around in front of my fan too.

Monday means well I'm sure

I love the new range from http://www.poppiesforgrace.com/ they are so soft and lovely. The invitations are really pretty and there are lovely ones for boys and girls, with matching treats bags of course.

I hope you all manage to find your own little sanctuary this weekend to rejuvenate, I'm thinking about putting a door on the walk in robe for this very purpose. x

Monday Matters

There are always Monday matters to attend to but sometimes you just need a few uplifting words to give you wings so to speak

Friday Loves .....

You can't but love a diorama, as long as you doing the gazing and not the creating. I would swiftly move from diorama straight to drama in one quick snip of the scissors.

Getting My Groove Back

The joy of being in St Germain at Le Editeurs famous literary bar with Steven's lovely sister, whilst her just as lovely husband looked after their very very lovely sleeping baby near by. Oh and the joy of sharing a bottle of Baileys and a chocolate souffle. Oh so lovely.

Water does not get any bluer or clearer, but oh for our sandy beaches - Positano
Just try to imagine the scale as you look at the small speck of white to the bottom of the frame. Such was the construction and layout the Romans could fill this entire structure in ten minutes. Inspiring, but blood curdling.
The Spanish Steps, just a vibrant hum from the many who chose to sit and ponder the unseasonally hot day wandering through cobbled streets where one may amble into a Roman Forum centuries old or the latest interior design layout in Prada.


Paris - detail, wealth, art and history know no boundaries

I have recently had an unexplained hiatus from blogging and have found it very hard to get any momentum since our return from our trip, which in fact seems a lifetime ago. Soooooooo, I though the best way to kick start is to look to the simple things to love that have inspired me lately................Am feeling simply better already. I hope you enjoy these images half as much as I have.
