Last chance to see... Peter Roseman Paintings, 5 Seymour Place

I'm very sad that tomorrow is P's last day at 5 Seymour Place...

If you have the time, come along for a look! I promise you'll be amazed...

Fantastic Mr Fox

I'm really looking forward to seeing Wes Anderson's take on Roald Dahl's wonderful tale, Fantastic Mr Fox...

It's been ages since we were able to make it to Colombia Road Flower Market, but fortunately we managed to get there this week and picked up these beautiful marshmallow pink and white Hydrangea blooms.

Also noticed that Ryantown is one year old... how time flies!

Started the day with breakfast at The Albion and ended up having my favourite kind of day...


My three Baggu bags arrived today and I'm thrilled with them... one regular size Baggu in grey, a baby Baggu in black and the big Baggu in smoke.

The big one is BIG!

Portrait of a handsome man

Weeks and weeks and weeks ago I drew a picture of P and it made us both laugh so, so much. 

 I'm not very good at drawing, but I wish I was.

As someone who will flee the scene if someone is crunching on a crisp apple, and who avoids having to hear an apple being eaten at all costs, I'm very partial to an apple motif and even had the nickname Apple back in junior school.

Found at the very lovely BadenBaden via Ah-Yi.

Bags, bags, bags...

As hard as I try to avoid wanting new things, my wish list just seems to get longer and longer and longer.

The Pia Wallén leather handbag has reappeared on my radar. I've wanted this bag for such a long time.

When, oh when, will I get my mitts on a Swedish Hasbeens wrist bag? It really is just the thing I need.

Closer to home, and within my grasp, is the American Apparel cotton canvas pocket tote... must go back and have another look.  Surely not too wasteful at £21?

AND, I've just been informed that a selection of these are on their way to me... more about them when they arrive.  Just don't get too excited about the colour choices which I made from the fantastic selection available.

I've done very little shopping in the sales (in fact I think this is it), but last week I picked up these little cuties from Tabio at 50% off...

Both pairs have been through the washing machine a couple of times already, so I guess that's a sign that they were a good buy!

Polo Chair... it's mine

We needed a chair and table for the space where P is showing his paintings, so naturally I had the perfect excuse to order the white Robin Day Polo Chair... it looks a treat with the white Ikea Muddus table, don't you think?

Peter Roseman Paintings

Yesterday, P's exhibition opened at 5 Seymour Place. It was a great opening night, spent with friends, family and lots of new faces... all of whom were very impressed with my talented husbands incredible work.

Moo Cards

Today we received the Moo Cards which we ordered for P's exhibition, which opens next Tuesday.  They're details of three paintings (top Pollen Count; middle The Ghost of a Flea; bottom Sleeps with Magnets).

I'm really pleased with them.

Muji manufactured by Thonet

A brilliant collaboration, which will finally be available in the UK one month from today... Muji manufactured by Thonet.

I'm really excited to see these simple, beautiful pieces for real. They'll be launched at the Tottenham Court Road branch of Muji on 1 August.
