red chair


Santa was very good to me this year.

He gave me a beautiful red chair and I love it!

I popped my loopy granny cushion onto it for the photos.

Eventually, it will find a new home in my craft room.

In the meantime, I am enjoying a wonderful and relaxing  holiday break.

I hope you are too.

dolce luce


This week  I’m loving……

the sweet, gentle light of Christmas…..

flickering candles, shimmering lights on the tree,

the perfect reflection from a silver bauble.

Pure joy!

I’m loving……



I have always loved white interiors.

I have this idea that one day  I’ll have a house with white walls and painted white floorboards in every room.

Until then, I’ll just  have to be content with adding touches of white to the home.

Some flowers here, a candlestick there and a Christmas ornament or two.

White floorboards…….how lovely…….I’ll keep on dreaming!


By the way did you spy the cute, crocheted stars on the tree?

I wish I could say I made them, but I didn’t.

You can find them here

I had some baskets that I was using to store fabric and they were looking a little tatty.

I thought it might be nice to revamp them by adding a new lining.

The baskets were blue so of course the lining had to be red.


 I did a little cutting and sewing

fitted the lining to my baskets

then popped them into the cupboard to hold all my crafty goodies
