How food blogs won me over
How food blogs won me over

Blogging does not come naturally to me. A couple of years ago you couldn’t have recommended a blog highly enough to me that it would actually make me sit down and enter its URL into my search bar. And trying to get me to update my then pitiful blog was like trying to make Mary…

Autumn/Winter 2014 Photoshoot
Autumn/Winter 2014 Photoshoot

A couple of weeks ago I got to do one of my favourite parts of the job – photography for the new catalogue! I love getting involved styling and propping the photos and lets face it – everyone loves a day out the office. Especially a scorcher like this one! Quite bazaar trying to create…

Last weekend was a fun one. A super fun one… so I thought I’d write it all down. Here are my 6 good things. It was a busy week in the lead up to the weekend full of photography and flower shows which although is one of my favourite sorts of busy it left me…

Raspberry and rosewater cupcakes
Raspberry and rosewater cupcakes

I suppose it would go without saying that my love for flowers extends beyond growing them in the garden and putting them in a vase. I love wearing them, drawing them and giving them. I also love cooking with them and am especially in love with rosewater and orange flower water in baking. A couple…

Making paella
Making paella

The past two years have seen some unexpected life changes for me. One of the biggest changes I’ve faced is that after living in villages in the middle of nowhere for most of my 28 years I have now moved to a town for the first time in my life entering the dark and scary world…

Brining duck legs
Brining duck legs

Duck legs are one of my most favourite things to eat. At a pub I used to work in a few years ago they used to get duck legs from a local butcher that were cured and they were the most delicious flavour! So when I saw Fergus Henderson’s recipe for brining duck legs I…

Making paper tissue pom pom’s
Making paper tissue pom pom’s

A few people have asked where I got the pom pom’s from for the Birdsong summerhouse at the chelsea flower show – I made them. A perfect rainy day activity or something to do with kids, they are super easy to make with satisfyingly pretty results! All you need is tissue paper, wire scissors and string. They’re…

Spanakopita – Greek spinach, feta and filo pie
Spanakopita – Greek spinach, feta and filo pie

Spinach is one of those things that every now and then I get an overwhelming craving for – usually after a spat of unhealthy eating when I can almost hear my body crying out for vitamins. There’s just something about eating it that makes me feel much better. Kind of like Popeye – kind of……

Visiting the Chelsea Flower Show 2014
Visiting the Chelsea Flower Show 2014

This week I finally got to visit the Chelsea Flower Show after longing for years but never quite being organised enough to book tickets before they sold out. Thanks to an invitation to collaborate with Scotts of Thrapston on their beautiful summerhouse stand this year, I was able to fully gorge on the magical gardens in the…

Katie Alice at The Chelsea Flower Show 2014

This year I was flattered to be asked by local business Scotts of Thrapston if I would like to work with them on their beautiful summer houses for their stand at the RHS 2014 chelsea flower show. I’ve been desperate to go to the flower show for a long time but my sieve-like memory prevents me from…

Vintage inspired baking accessories
Vintage inspired baking accessories

When I arrived back from a two week road trip around Italy at 2 O’Clock in the morning it had completely slipped my mind that it was in fact Easter Day. It hadn’t crossed my mind that the fridge was empty and the shops would be shut and there was little-to-no hope of a surprise…

From Burano, with love
From Burano, with love

I first heard about Burano just over a year ago when I discovered one of my now favourite instagrammers @corrine_t – a well travelled nurse from Canada. Her beautiful gallery features bright shots from all over the world sharing experiences and offering inspiration. It was inspiration I took from her photos of ‘Isola di Burano’, a tiny Italian…

When life throws you gooseberries… make Jam
When life throws you gooseberries… make Jam

I love that point when you have been visiting relatives and it becomes time to leave, where you are almost certainly persuaded to take something with you whether it be left over cake, plant clippings, some carrots dug out the garden (the later is a particular reference to my Grandad) or just something in the…

A bit of Christmas Floristry
A bit of Christmas Floristry

This weekend I got into the festive spirit (which is slightly earlier than I normally would but I’m certainly not complaining) and did a Christmas Wreath making workshop at a local Florist. Tracey set up Foxtail Lilly in her own outbuildings in a town local to me and is a wonderfully inspirational place. She makes beautiful flower…
