sunny sunday

here I am! sorry for the short interlude, my mind has been diverted from my blog somewhat, but now I am back again!

Today was the first sunny day in about three months! I felt the urge to take some photos around the flat as the sun came streaming through the window.

this dress {it is hanging up after being in the washing machine} is my most favourite dress, I have worn it so much in the last few years. it cost £4 from Leather Lane market. It was huge so I altered it on my sewing machine so that i could wear to Paris fashion week {we used to show our jewellery there} and during the exhibition, i remember two women whispering behind my back "that's that Chanel dress" ...ha ha! 
...the Icelandic jumper is a new find waiting for a hand wash before i can wear it...

a candle for Nao to enjoy whilst in the bath.

a picture made entirely of Harris Tweed.

 Plimsoll loves to sit under the light bulb...its her light therapy during the winter I think.

not only am i glued to the property websites, i have come down with ANOTHER cold! 
the sofa was my nest today.

i love this picture, its a 1920s screen print i found in the market.

 little domino xmas card and tiny tiny dish...

 ...and beautiful sweets that are too stunning to eat!...from the lovely lovely lady at 'more tea vicar'

 and Euston, our naked Paddington bear...

I'll be back in a few ticks for some more updates of our weekends!


  1. All the very best of luck with your hunt for a nest, you'll be so excited when you find the right place xx

  2. I feel you, it's so difficult to find anything decent in London, best of luck, cant wait to see what you find

  3. Artemis! I have just stumbled upon your blog and fallen in love, its absolutely gorgeous, every last thing!!!
    Going on a bit of a tangent from this post, as lovely as it is, please could you let me know whether for your pouches of confetti at your sweet, sweet wedding, you used a rubber stamp and ink or?...
    I'm trying to recreate some similar pouches for some designs of mine so would really appreciate if you could let me know.
    Back to hunting out your little nest, good luck, there is not a lovelier moment than sitting on your boxes in your new home with your one love sipping tea :) I hope you find a little haven xxx

  4. I love your flat, so many nice things to look at! Good luck with your search for a new flat. Im well aware how hard it is in London to find somewhere for a decent price (which is one of the reasons we moved out and came to Norway!)

  5. Your flat is adorable, i could look at your photos for hours!

  6. These are my favourite posts of yours. You have made your little nest so cosy and it seems like a lovely place to hibernate throughout the winters.Best of luck with the house hunting. pS If you want cheaper houses and good weather, come live in Australia!

  7. Your house seems so lovely!
    Everything looks like it has been chosen to go together!

  8. I love your cat!

    And so many lovely things in your home and so well put together.

  9. Your apartment is gorgeous, wow!

  10. Ah........that dress ("chanel"!)= gorgeous and oh my gosh, a tweed picture and Harris Tweed at that!! As a follower of your blog, I have to say that you're doing a jolly good job, it's most entertaining and oh so pretty!

  11. I just feel the need to tell you that I love you! Haha! Your blog is a complete inspiration, and one day (in the not too distant future hopefully!) I will be coming to your lovely shop to buy my wedding ring! Much love xxx
