Huevos Picantes

Huevos Picantes

This lovely dish (spicy eggs) is a firm favourite Sunday breakfast in our house. I’m not sure if it’s because it has chorizo in it, or if it’s because it legitimately allows us to have guacamole before lunchtime. Maybe it’s just down to the cheese (God I love cheese). Anyway, its easy and quick-ish to...
Currently Coveting: Vintage Drinks Trolley

Currently Coveting: Vintage Drinks Trolley

I’ve been wanting a drinks trolley for the longest time (even longer when you consider how long this post has been sitting in my drafts). Somewhere to hold the good stuff for guests and parties, as well as all the cute glasses and drinking paraphernalia I have collected over the years.  Source Source Source Source...
T is for Tiles

T is for Tiles

When you think of tiling you probably think of the generic white squares around your bath. Or perhaps, and even worse, the old-fashioned floral monstrosities in your Grandma’s kitchen  (although I wonder if these are so retro they’ve become cool again?). Either way, there’s so much more to tiling than protecting your walls from water....
B is for Books

B is for Books

I’m a writer. And before that, I’m a reader. So, one of the things I imagine my house to one day have, is lots of books. Although I’ve managed the expectations that the Beauty and the Beast library set up for me, I do still have high hopes for my future bookcases. Just in case...

Currently coveting…Wall pugs

Pugs are good aren’t they? I mean, they might not be the smartest of pooches in the dog world but they are certainly a force to be reckoned with in the ‘wanna squeeze your face’ stakes. I’m a little bit obsessed with pugs actually (so too is BP, she won’t mind me saying this) but...
Don't be a doormat

Don’t be a doormat

Lately, I have developed a bit of an obsession with door mats. There’s no real reason why. I don’t have my own house, let alone my own front door but I can’t help but collect pictures of these quirky little guys.           I actually have that last one, in my bottom...
Stairway to heaven?

Stairway to heaven?

Walking up stairs can be a bit of a chore sometimes. You know, you’re downstairs watching TV and you’ve left your cardigan all the way upstairs, which at this point in time could be Everest for all you know. But, stairs would never be anything but fun if you were to decorate them like the...

Currently coveting…Film Map

OK, so I can’t covert something I’ve already bought but it hasn’t been delivered yet so it still counts. A map, loosely based on the style of a vintage Los Angeles street map, made up of over 900 film titles. Instead of normal names, roads and areas are called Jurassic Park, Field of Dreams, Valley...
