One of the downsides to living up North is that we don’t get to see our family as much as we would like. Which makes me sad. But when we do, it’s as if no time has passed really.  Although, saying that, nieces grow really quickly. Here are a few […]

Saltaire on a quiet Saturday

As you’ve probably already guessed, I love Saltaire.  As a country girl, moving to a big city was a big deal! I am used to getting stuck behind tractors rather than navigating the crazy roads of the city.  Saltaire provides an oasis and it’s very pretty with coffee and vintage […]

Handmade Treasures

I enjoy looking at all my old and new photos on my mac.  It’s good to remember fun times often especially as memories are kept digitally nowadays. These two are personal favourites from a recent conference, one from this year and one from last.  

Vintage Crockery

I have a friend, lets call her Mrs H, who has a heavenly gifting of locating gorgeous vintage finds.  She has some sort of homing device or special sense that she tunes into and she finds the most amazing items.  This crockery is an example.  It was used during a […]

Percolation and Process

I have been contemplating the idea of process recently and understanding that I am a process person has been a huge revelation. This revelation has helped how I view my creative day and has shown me what type of day works best for me and that I basically percolate all […]


Some dear friends recently moved away and had a clear out. In the pile was this little, curious camera. Loving cameras and never hearing of Oktomat I took it home. I must say I thought that the day of 35mm films was fast approaching an end but ‘oh no!’ so […]

One Man and His Cat

It’s been a while since I posted so in the interim thought I would leave you with this iphone pic of Robin and his assistant, Lois. See you soon!

Cold Christmas Goats

As it’s ‘the most wonderful time of the year’ nearly, I am putting ‘Christmas’ in front of everything. These cold Christmas goats are at my local farm shop – not for eating you understand but for viewing pleasure and delight. I love goats. I love their little noises. I love […]

Victoria Quarter, Leeds

I did some window shopping at the Victoria Quarter in Leeds this week. With the main objective being ‘window shopping’ I really got to appreciate some beautiful architecture and the Christmas decorations.

Cath Kidston Shop

Cath Kidston Part Two

The Leeds store, I think, is quite big and at the bottom it’s like going back in time.  It is full of 80’s nostalgia. Actual, real, 80’s bits and pieces mixed with CK items. I used to love the painted/printed milk bottles and when they used to come with the milkman […]

Cath Kidston Leeds

Christmas At Cath Kidston, Leeds

No matter when I pop into a Cath Kidston shop, I can be sure that I am walking around going ‘ooh, I love that’ with a little grin on my face. The pink Christmas tree does work in the Leeds shop, they can definitely get away with it! I would not want […]
