Pretty English Garden
Pretty English Garden

The late spring flowers are just starting to retire for the year with the clematis montana no longer at its best and the lilac’s ruffles turning weary and brown. Not that I’m complaining – far from it because all this means that summer is right on our doorstep. Wonderful, wonderful summer who I miss so…

I finally made the trip to Hastings last weekend to visit one of my best friends who bought a house down there two and half years ago. I know – two and half years – waaaaaay overdue. She had as she put it “a free house” (her beau was in Italy) although I’m not sure…

For summer this year we have added some cute new products to the Pretty Retro collection in the form of trays and textiles – the perfect additions for this everyday range. Pretty Retro was first launched in Autumn 2015 and it’s popularity has meant we’ve been able to expand it’s prettiness onto more lovely things…

Laid back Spring music
Laid back Spring music

I can’t imagine life without music. If I’m not belting out old favourites from iTunes in my car I’m sneakily scouring Spotify for new music when I should really be finishing my latest blog post. It’s on when I’m cooking, it’s on when I’m working and going to gigs and festivals is just about one…

Vintage Indigo is coming
Vintage Indigo is coming

I get so excited when we’re about to launch a new collection. Well, excited and nervous/self-conscious in equal parts really. It can be quite a lengthy process developing new products and new collections – at the moment for example I’m working in ideas for Autumn/Winter 2017 already! So it’s always lovely to finally get to…

I love beautiful imagery – who doesn’t?! There’s something inspiring about seeing a beautifully styled photo that makes you wish you could jump right in and be a part of it. Instagram is perfect for this. I think I’ve professed my love for Instagram many-a-time on the blog before and I’m going to do it…

Egg cup giveaway
Egg cup giveaway

This weekend is Easter weekend which, traffic jams aside, is one of the best weekends of the year in my books. Not only is it perfectly acceptable to eat chocolate for pretty much 24 hours solid but more importantly for me it really marks the end of the drab winter months that, lets be honest,…

Pink rhubarb pie for pie week
Pink rhubarb pie for pie week

How absolutely adorable is the pretty pink colour of rhubarb this time of year. Grown in England’s very own curious triangle of the North –  the ‘rhubarb triangle’ (where during the months of January to March farmers live in a candle lit world full of bright pink, tasty rhubarb), it’s lovely pink colour and sweet flavour…

Whether they are birthmothers, grandmothers, adopted mothers or just somebody that has been a motherly figure in your life – hat’s off to all…

Make us your Facebook favourite

So you may or may not have noticed that Facebook has severely changed the way it shows you content in recent months. Have you ever thought to yourself, “hmmm, I have loads of friends and follow lots of different pages but I’m constantly scrolling through the same old stuff in my news feed’? Well that’s…

Flippin’ eck!

So I know it’s pretty difficult to beat the classic lemon and sugar combo on Pancake Day but if you’re anything like me you’ll be curious enough to give something new a try. Here are 5 recipes from some of my favourite food blogs that look worthy of a little whisk action this Tuesday. Now…

The Evolution and Inspiration of Highland Fling Highland Fling originally launched as a small collection of mugs, trays and coasters for winter of 2012. The snuggly warm colour palette and tartan textures were inspired by a chilly trip to a Castle in Edinburgh the previous year, with a pretty vintage floral design thrown in for…

Robbie’s Roast Chicken

I’ve always been a big fan of Burns night, partly because I think any celebration of poetry and the arts should be honored without hesitation, and partly because Scottish single malts and Haggis are two of my most very favourite things. One of the first Romantic’s, Robert Burn’s charming poetry and folk songs include beauties…

A trip to Japan
A trip to Japan

So this post is a little late in arriving but I still wanted to share my amazing trip to Japan with you! Right back at the start of last year I was paid a visit by two lovely chaps working for the Japanese department store Hankyu.  They asked whether I would like to attend the…

Out with a bang
Out with a bang

Our first year of fairs ended with a bang last year at the Country Living Christmas Fair back in November! For those of you that couldn’t make it, we had an amazing stand position right at the entrance of the fair. We had our beautiful new handmade rustic shelves, lovely winter foliage from Miss Pickering,…

I’ve been away from home so much this winter that I just couldn’t find time to make either a Christmas Cake or Christmas puddings. So I’ve had to find some new Christmas baking recipes to give the house that amazing smell that only homemade festive treats can do. This is a recipe adapted from the…

Christmas Giveaway 2015
Christmas Giveaway 2015

I genuinely think I enjoy giving gifts more than receiving them at Christmas. I mean, don’t get me wrong, everybody likes getting a lovely present, especially when it’s all wrapped up in pretty paper with bows and ribbons and just so happens to be that lovely fluffy jumper you saw in Vivienne Westwood last month…

Our new British-made Notebooks

Lets talk stationery. I’ve been trying to venture Katie Alice into the world of stationery for quite some time, and after months and months of unsuccessful attempts my enthusiasm was dwindling somewhat. But I refused to call it a day and carried on relentlessly googling until I found what I needed. You know that thing…
