Ketchup On Everything

I just have to share this amazing prize I won recently on twitter through Blog & Buy Sale. Which if you haven't stumbled upon before, is a fantastic site which showcases the work of independent artists/designers/makers. It's really great for finding really quirky and unique products. I've been pouring  over the work of Kay Vincent (Ketchup on Everything) for a while now - in fact our house definitely needs to have one of these prints! I love the humour and simplicity in her designs, as well as the graphic colour palette.  So I was thrilled to win this gorgeous melamine coaster set, it's made in Britain and is of a really lovely quality, and oh how these quirky little characters make me smile in the mornings when drinking my morning cuppa! Thank you so much to Kay and Blog & Buy Sale!

Gorgeous Weekends

So I know the weather has kind of gone downhill since the weekend, but I thought I'd post about it to try and tempt the sun back a bit, as it was just a bit lovely wasn't it? Not sure I can remember a bank holiday like it! We spent lots of family time together outside, sometimes in the garden.

Look at these pretty frilly edged tulips which have just come up in our front garden, I probably should have left them there (I remember so clearly my mum telling me off for picking flowers as a child!) but I couldn't resist putting them in my beautiful pink vintage vase.

Delilah had fun on a tractor at Barleylands Farm,

...and marvelled at the Gruffalo sculptures at Thorndon Country Park.

I was particularly excited by finally being able to wear my new bright blue floral Keds!

Here's to another amazing weekend everyone, hope you all have a good one :) xxx
