Carve out some time for yourself in 2019. I’m collaborating with linocut artist @smudgedprints and we are running a day retreat on 9th February at the utterly dreamy and gorgeously gloomy house of @ridge_and_furrow - interior designer and stylist. Guests will spend the morning designing a personal rubber stamp, using linocut techniques under the guidance of Kate Buckingham, and then after a sociable lunch and a wander about we will help you get more focus and intention into your life by learning the technique of bullet journalling. And you’ll be free to roam and take snaps of Elle’s house - it has so many secret corners and surprises! Everyone will leave with a bullet journal ready to use, a bespoke stamp that brings you joy because you made it yourself, and hopefully some new clarity and friendships too. Tickets for this 10am-3pm day retreat are £65 and limited to only 10 spaces. Click link in my bio to book. Make 2019 the year you live intentionally! It’s the perfect Christmas present - give yourself some time!
Another glimpse of that gorgeous @balsamhilluk tree we went faux here as the under floor heating @peonycottagecotswolds would have played havoc with a real tree 🌲 I’m so pleased with it they look very real!
It’s a ritual in our house that my son and husband get the tree, it was to be last night but no trees that passed the grade 😳 hoping for better luck today 😉is your tree up?
Have a lovely day everyone.

The Planting Plan for the front garden I’m designing is labelled up and ready for my clients. The plan shows exactly where each carefully selected plant goes. The brief is to smarten the area up and create a fitting entrance to the house. I’m using a lovely small purple leaved crab apple tree in front of each window as my clients are really keen to obscure the view in from the road.
