It keeps happening to me, I just can’t help it. I love buying pretty things for our home, I love receiving parcels and I love finding the perfect place for them to live.
My poor husband tolerates my obsession very well even though, in his own words, he ‘doesn’t get it’. I tell him it doesn’t matter that he doesn’t get it and that he will learn to love the ‘stuff’ that regularly appears in the house.
My studio, which is normally where all the pretty things live, is now full, full to overflowing, so I have started spreading into other areas of the house rather than curb my addiction. Mr Daisy hangs things up, puts pins in the wall for displaying gorgeous things, tolerating my quirky instructions with only minimal huffing and puffing bless him.
So, I thought you may like to see my latest arrivals ……
This arrived from Just Bunting in Cornwall and I knew where I wanted it to live even as I was ordering it, which is unusual. However, Mr Daisy huffed and puffed a lot with this and really didn’t get it. …..
And my love affair continues with the very fabulous work of Marna Lunt of Little A Designs, she is so creative and talented. My parcel arrived so beautifully wrapped and ribbon tied and was a delight to open and then I spent a happy hour or two finding the perfect home for my new pretties ……. on the plus side, I could do this all by myself, without enlisting the mister’s help, so it seems he hasn’t noticed the new additions to our home yet ……
The hearts are gorgeous and Samson is proud to wear the love heart round his neck!
I adore this new idea from Little A Designs … Marna makes lots of different sized hoops with gorgeous Liberty fabrics and a baby sized pegs for displaying treasured photographs. This photo was taken in the 70′s of me and Mr Daisy having a dance ….
Have pinned my ‘Cuddle Here’ rosette on the arm of my very cosy snuggly armchair in the hope that is will attract some attention!
And finally, my totally gorgeous cushion. Marna is a genius with cushions. These are not cheap and are not everyday wear cushions, they are heirloom pieces to treasure, made with love and adorned with beautiful vintage buttons, ribbons and fabulous embroidery. And each one is an original work of art, have a look at her website if you fancy one, they make perfect gifts for special people …..
It’s Friday, so that means you must all bake for the weekend. Try one of my lovely recipes and let me know how you get on. I will be making cherry meringues …. a request from Mr Daisy, and as he has been good enough to humour me with my pretty things, I think it’s the least I can do for him
Happy weekend folks, love Daisy Cupcakes
