Books | Garden Style by Selina Lake…

I can’t wait for Spring.  I’m dying to get out there and potter in my small courtyard.  At the moment I have pots with green tulip shoots popping up through the soil and unrecognisable shoots of plants that I’ve forgotten I’ve owned. What are they?  Time will tell once they fully emerge. Spring is the perfect time to get outside and start planning and playing with your outside space.  And if you are in need of some inspiration, then look

Sisterhood | Building a community…

I often get asked why I started Sisterhood Camp.  Where did my inspiration come from?  Well to be honest it was started with an innocent need to connect with like minded women.  To bring together all those creative women I had ‘met’ over the internet.  A camp in North Devon – a chance for us to switch off from work. The majority of women I knew were in the blogging / artistic community who I had met through blogging and

Inspiration | Mood board for March…

This month I am drawn to soft muted tones of beige, browns and tan.  With stems of pampas grass, gold statement earrings, brown legs and earthy ceramics. Looking at these images I think I am desperate for warmer weather, to walk barefoot on cool concrete floors.  Hear bird song, and smell fresh grass.

Door trims with sticky marks.  The stair

Recipe | Cumin Chicken with giant couscous, courgette, peas & mint with Le Creuset

This time of year I crave fresh green vegetables and simple ingredients, cooked in a quick and easy way.  Leaving stodgy winter foods behind me, I’m after quick, nutritious meals that the whole family will enjoy. I am longing for wild garlic and spring greens.. there is nothing better than going for a walk in the woods and gathering a handful of wild garlic leaves to cook with.  Soon!  In fact I heard the season is particularly early, and there are
