A Blooming Fancy Party Cake
A Blooming Fancy Party Cake

To celebrate the launch of the lovely new Blooming Fancy collection I decided to make a pretty pink party cake topped with a giraffe in a party hat, of course. This would be just the recipe if you are looking for something fun and summery to bake for the big royal wedding at the weekend! I…

Festival Folk Picnic Time
Festival Folk Picnic Time

The bright and happy Festival Folk collection has some excited new limited-edition pieces for this summer – our first ever collection of picnic-ware! The scandi-inspired design which sings in a bright festival-inspired colour palate, translates perfectly across to the beautiful new set of pressed bamboo dinnerware and accessories! The lovely new pieces are made from…

Easter weekend new product launches!
Easter weekend new product launches!

Happy Easter weekend! Ignoring the fact that we just had another amber weather warning for snow (come on guys, really?!), it’s kind of starting to feel like winter is on the way out! The clocks have changed and the extra hour of daylight feels like the perfect gift! The blossom is finally starting to burst…

Food Tour of New York
Food Tour of New York

When you go to New York for a week you kind of expect to come back carrying a few extra pounds (especially if you have a rapidly growing baby in your tummy), and last week we certainly embraced the New York food scene as best we could. While out there for work and visiting family,…

Monthly Instagram Competition
Monthly Instagram Competition

Our new monthly Instagram competition has launched! I’ve been an on-and-off Instagram addict for about 5 years now. It’s changed an awful lot in that time but it’s still my favourite social media platform, a wonderful source of inspiration, photos of Italian Greyhounds doing ridiculous things, all round lolz, general life advice and most importantly…

Easy fruit loaf
Easy fruit loaf

A craving for cake and a distinct lack of butter… Sunday evening at around 4:15 – just late enough for the shops to be shut and just early enough for me know that the sudden urge to bake that I’ve just had is not going away in a hurry. What cakes can I bake without…

English Winter Minestrone Soup
English Winter Minestrone Soup

A hearty, seasonal  Minestrone recipe Minestrone soup is one of those glorious dishes that can be completely different depending on what time of year you make it and so which vegetables are in season. Along with carrots, pretty much a given whatever the season, this version includes English potatoes, leeks and onions, beautiful Fenland celery…

Christmas Gift Guide 2017
Christmas Gift Guide 2017

Here we are again then! The twinkly lights are flickering faster than false eyelashes at the works Christmas do, the Christmas emails are flooding in thick and fast and the supermarket aisles are stacked high with plastic tubs full of shiny wrapped chocolates (oh how I mourn the disappearance of a proper tin)… Ah yes,…

Pear and Blackberry pie
Pear and Blackberry pie

As winter arrives with its faithful companions; grey skies, muddy fields and icy windscreens, I find myself turning to the comfort of cosy food to get the feeling of warmth that I miss so much outside of summer. There’s nothing ground-breaking about this recipe (apart from the super easy pastry from Call-me-Cupcake), it’s more just a…

Free bags this November!
Free bags this November!

This isn’t really a blog post about Christmas. Because after all it is only the first of November, and although there are them that count down the days to Christmas from as grotesquely early as the 26th of December; for the majority, I believe November is still too premature for tinsel and jingle bells. I do…

Off to Japan…
Off to Japan…

In just over two weeks I’ll be boarding a flight on my way back to wonderful, wonderful Japan. I’m honoured to have been invited back by Hankyu department store in Osaka to exhibit at their bustling British Fair event, which I first attended back in 2015. The upcoming trip has also provided me with the…

End of summer playlist
End of summer playlist

I don’t know why I’m so surprised about the arrival of Autumn every year. Actually, I suppose it’s not Autumn’s arrival, but rather Summer’s departure that catches me off guard.  As much as I can totally get on board with the chunky knits, hearty bowls of root vegetable stew and roaring log fires, I largely…

Birthday Parties and Cauliflower salads
Birthday Parties and Cauliflower salads

Cooking is still proving somewhat tricky in our current state of non-kitcheness. We’ve now been without basic household appliances such as a kitchen sink, oven, hob, washing machine and worktops for 5 months and a full year has passed since we saw most of our kitchenware. Our favourite bowls, our pour-over coffee maker, our spiralizer,…

Back to school
Back to school

Learning is important, she says. I only wish I had respected that piece of information a little more when I was at school. Matt and I moved into our first house in Stamford during October 2013 – we obviously made it a priority to test the route to the local pub; exploring a little along…

Strawberry Sandwiches
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…
