Bowerbird by Sibella Court – Inspired to collect

I received Sibella Court’s new book Bowerbird for Christmas and enjoyed reading it at home on the sofa in the last few days I had off work last week. Crammed full of inspirational ways to display the things you collect, the book explains how Sibella arranges and re arranges her own personal collections as they grow, to display and store each item. Full of unusual ways to share your belongings the book made me want to collect more than I all ready do! I often rearrange my things at home depending on any new additional furniture or tidy away old things to make room for the belongings I feel for more at the tme. A cheap Ikea table goes to make room for a large pine one we found on the street and the fire-place is rearranged after a small vintage  barbecue stands in  for a make shift fire grate…I dont think I will ever stop changing our flat, every time I do  it just makes me like it more…full of individually found objects and furniture from various days out, full of memories. Each item has a story to tell. After reading the book cover it made me just want to have a good rummage in a junk shop and see what else I can find….

Secret Santa

Pictures of the Secret Santa gift I put together for our Menswear Designer at work who loves to cook.

I have mentioned Jose’s a few times, both at work and also on ‘Hollybees’ as it is my favourite tapas restaurant and a great place to relax on  Sunday afternoon and enjoy a few dishes of traditional Spanish food. After buying his cook book on our first visit I have been able to have some of his delicious food at home. I put page markers on some of my favorite dishes that I have either eaten at Jose’s or have had at home. A great way to share your favourite dishes as part of the gift.

Homes and Interior

Some images from a beautiful book I came across, ‘Romantic Prairie Style by Fifi O’Neill’. Gorgeous rustic interiors and some lovely ideas for finishing rooms…I love the idea of using a ladder as storage, something I saw at the Maltby Street Market also…
