Strawberry Sandwiches

You know that thing that people say about tomatoes in England. You know, that we get all the crappy tomatoes – that Italians keep all the best, most delicious tomatoes for themselves and that if we ever want to experience the taste of a proper tomato than we have to go to Italy and tussle…

Pimm’s and an Ode to Wimbledon
Pimm’s and an Ode to Wimbledon

Can you believe it’s almost July? Mid-summer really is my favourite time of year; festival season, BBQ season, pretty dresses and no socks season. I’d take all the wasps in Lincolnshire over the cold and wet winter months any day of the year. July also means another one of my favorite summer events – Wimbledon.…

The story behind . . . Rustic Lace
The story behind . . . Rustic Lace

Back in 2014 Matt and I popped over to Paris for a couple of days to visit Maison et Objet which is the crème de la crème of the trade shows in the housewares industry. As much as I generally try to avoid going to trade shows, I thought a mid week escape to Paris…

A Pretty Little Feature
A Pretty Little Feature

I’m feeling pretty damn proud right now. The Festival Folk collection has been featured in the lovely Country Homes and Interiors magazine – and not just any old feature. Oh no. A cover feature, if you please. Yipeeeee! The front-page article fills a further 8 pages of the glossy mag with beautifully imagery, styled by…

A calm Easter weekend?
A calm Easter weekend?

We are deep in the middle of a huge house makeover and kitchen extension project at the moment. This poor Victorian semi doesn’t quite know what’s hit it and as a result all of our stuff has been completely misplaced. The studio at the bottom of the garden is just a broken window away from…

Berry Full Smoothie
Berry Full Smoothie

I know we’re supposed to be stuffing our smoothies with as much spinach, kale and spirulina powder as possible these days, and I do usually opt for a greener smoothie when I make them. But, let’s be honest; no matter how much we try to convince ourselves that they “taste quite nice actually” they are…

Boozy banana and salt chocolate pancakes
Boozy banana and salt chocolate pancakes

Boozy poached banana and salted chocolate pancakes Some grown up pancakes for Shrove Tuesday. These are especially good if you’re giving up either alcohol or chocolate for lent. Or if your not giving anything up but just really like chocolate and banana pancakes. And rum. I’d never really thought about poaching a banana before until…

Pink Rhubarb, Pink Everything
Pink Rhubarb, Pink Everything

Pink Rhubarb, Pink Everything My current obsession with pink shows no sign of slowing down; if anything, it’s got mildly worse. And while I try to come up with new ways to convince Matt that it’s a good idea to paint at least one of the walls in the kitchen a rosy hue, I’ve had…

Festival Folk is coming…
Festival Folk is coming…

I’m a terrible decision maker. I worry in an unreasonable manor that I’ll make the wrong choice, and this can really apply to just about anything. “Should I go for an all-white colour scheme in the hallway or should I go for dark and moody?” “Should I invest savings into property or into my business?”…

Goodbye 2016 and hello 2017
Goodbye 2016 and hello 2017

Wishing all our wonderful customers a happy, healthy and prosperous 2017 The tinsel and baubles are boxed up and awaiting their journey to the loft, the wreath is propped up stubbornly by the back door and only Bounty’s remain in the tub of Celebration’s. This of course means the very dregs of Christmas are almost…

Christmas Mixtape
Christmas Mixtape

Are you feeling Christmas-y yet? There’s nothing quite like a festive melody to really get you in the Christmas spirit. I find that no matter how scrooge-like I might be feeling at any particular time, just the very opening drumroll of ‘Stop the Cavalry’ by Jona Lewie is enough to get me reaching for the…

Christmas Countdown
Christmas Countdown

Pinch punch first of the BEST MONTH OF THE YEAR! Would you believe we’re at December again? Now begins the rapid decent to the most over-indulgent day of the year and in case you haven’t tied up all those loose ends of Christmas shopping yet (or like me haven’t started), we’re going to be running…

Homemade hot chocolate and spiced banana bread
Homemade hot chocolate and spiced banana bread

Cheering up the chills of winter It’s November 29th. The winter sun is trying it’s damned hardest to warm us all up but there’s only so high a sun can reach during these months and it seems it’s barely lifted a leg over the gate post before it’s time to climb back down to the…

Pumpkin bread
Pumpkin bread

I think I can speak for most amatuer bakers when I say that pulling a beautiful loaf of homemade bread out the oven is one of the most satisfying feelings in baking life. Seeing that welcome crack of the crust along the top, then tapping its floury bottom and hearing the hollow thud of a…

Halloween cake
Halloween cake

It has been so long since I last baked a cake. So, so long. I guess it’s something to do with trying to eat healthy as I’m definitely one of those bakers that needs multiple tasters throughout the whole cooking process – raw eggs do not intimidate me as much as they perhaps should. And…

Autumn Edit
Autumn Edit

Is anyone else starting to get really excited about wearing big fluffy jumpers, eating over-sized game pie’s and not worrying about whether or not you remembered to shave your legs? Don’t get me wrong, I’m definitely a summer girl but there is something enchanting about Autumn and all the wonderful richness that comes along with…

A new season and a new home
A new season and a new home

Bar the odd day or two and the freak heatwave we’re due this week, the past few weeks have begun to feel decidedly more Autumnal. The blazing sunny days we admire through the window carry a surprising nip in the wind and nights are becoming darker at their inevitable yet terrifying speed. And as England…

Burghley Horse Trials 2016

Every year in Stamford at the beautiful Elizabethan estate of Burghley Park, one of the most prestigious events in the equine calendar is hosted to crowds now reaching 140,000 in just four days. And every year since me and Matt moved into Stamford we have missed the whole event due to other plans but this year we…
