Yesterday on a gentle jaunt around the beautiful Lavenham, I came across so many fabulous wreaths, not a fake morsel in sight! Lula x

the twinkly lights of blighty

After 6 years of hot Christmases I'm happy to say I've finally returned to the motherland in search of a mulled wine, mistletoe and mittens! And nothing excites me more at this time of year than donning my winter warmers and venturing out into the bright lights of London. Regent Street, Trafalgar Square, Bond Street and Leicester Square to name but a few all hold twinkly treasures and wonderous windows. In the shadows of the London Eye I came across Southbank's Christmas Market. Another festive delight crammed with wooden chalets selling handmade crafts and yummy food. Oh to be British. London + Christmas = a happy place for me, Merry Christmas everyone! Lula x

wendy's wonders

An ordinary shed on the outside, a world of wonder on the inside. Mid-afternoon tea with my Mum's good friend Wendy soon turned into hours of treasure hunting. Handmade Nineteenth Century lace, old books, hand drawn maps, vintage sewing kits, wooden printing blocks... ah the list goes on. What a treat! Today's lesson, Tea at Wendy's always proves fruitful.
