Door curtain

Yesterday we fitted a curtain to the back of our front door in an attempt to reduce the draft which bellowes through the letter box and all round the edges. Not wanting to spend a fortune, we fashioned it out of one of a pair of Ikea ready made cotton Alvine Smal curtains, wonderweb, little hooks and eyelet rings.

Success... the hallway is warmer! Not such a success are these photos... any way, you get the idea.




Bedtime read

Not long ago I mentioned that our next bedtime read was going to be The Wizard of Oz, but once we'd finished The Long Goodbye we detoured to a different classic... Mary Shelley's Frankenstein.

It's a fine read!

Wii Music... why?

I think it's disturbing that this is the best thing they can think of doing with their time...

Flash afternoon tea

Yesterday, Deerlylou and I enjoyed the delicious Josiah Cream Tea at Flash... the second pop-up restaurant from the talented boys over at Bistrotheque.

I love the Will Broome for Wedgwood china designed specifically for the 80 day project.

Antipast accessories for earthman

Two weeks today P and I will be heading off on our honeymoon. We were married on 8 December last year and, due to me breaking my ankle ten days later, we decided to delay our Spring trip to Hong Kong and Japan until the end of the year... which is now almost here. YAY!!

Among the many exciting things about our trip (for me that is, possibly not so much for P) is seeking out hard to find Antipast goods... much like these, which I found on-line here at Brooklyn based Bird.

I've mentioned before my fondness for toadstools, so was delighted to pick up this little candle stick by Rice for just 99p at Columbia Road last Sunday.
