spring days

found and sewn found and sewn

Spring seems to give me lots of motivation, must be the lighter, longer days, and recently my days off have been spent at home and in the garden.

Here's a few things I've been up to...

Working on a very exciting new sewing project...more on that to come. 

I made this delicious Squash and Spinach Tart from the lovely Anna Jones cook book, 'a modern way to eat'. I have never made my own pastry before and it was surprisingly easy. 

Spending time, helping out at my boyfriends produce store. So many lovely things in that shop!

I keep rearranging things at home, decluttering, trying to get a simple, fresher look. I really love white ceramics, the two beautiful white handmade vases are from the lovely Illyria Pottery in Oxford. 

The White SylvaC flower vase I found in a charity shop for 50p a few years ago.  

I'm still starting most days with 10 minutes of meditation using the Headspace app. I'm really enjoying it 

My favourite flowers, Anemones and Ranunculus on the mantelpiece, a gift from my boyfriend.

I'd love to know what you have been up to lately... Have a lovely Easter Weekend.
