Styling Spring at Mine - Littlegreenshed blog

I am so excited about this months #stylingtheseasons!  There is something a bit special happening later this month, let me tell you more.

Katy and Charlotte in partnership with at{mine} have invited a small group of bloggers / stylists the opportunity to style a box of beautiful Bloom & Wild flowers in anyway they wish, reflecting what April means to them.  My box arrived last Thursday through the post. Inside the cardboard box was a pink delight of flowers, all perfectly wrapped and ready to be arranged.

So what to arrange?  Well, I was stumped.  With the added pressure of my brilliant peers to the mix, I wanted to do something that was different for me and not typically ‘Littlegreenshed’.

Last week, I found a pretty hexagonal shaped mirror in a junk shop, and so inspiration was formed…  a floral mirror garland…

Spring Cleaning 2015 – Part three…

31/03/2015

Spring Cleaning part three - littlegreenshed Spring is here, according to the recent equinox and the clocks going forward.  Time to dust down our homes, fling open the windows and de-clutter.

We’ve been charging ahead with our decorating, getting it ready for a number of interesting projects coming up.  The thought of cameras and people snooping at my dirt covered walls leaves me with dread!  So we’ve been touching up white paint, upcycling bits of tired furniture and cleaning everything in sight.

I almost forgot!  I am five!  Five years of blogging… who’d a thought it?!

Happy Birthday dear love, I really do love blogging, I love writing, documenting, telling stories.  Blogging has changed my life, our life and made it so much richer.

I have met awesome people, had some incredible opportunities and worked for some amazing companies along the way.

The next five years, who knows?!  But I hope this will continue and get bigger and better in the future.  Dan has already stepped up to help me with sponsorship and admin side, so if you need any help there it’s best to email him on Danlittlegreenshed@gmail.com.  This frees me up to do more writing and creative stuff.  Speaking of creative stuff… there is something really rather wonderful in the pipeline, which I am itching to tell you about!  SOON!

Thank you all for being there for me over the past five years, it has been a blast and without your constant support and positivity I would have never have continued.

So thank you!  And happy birthday!

Off to eat cake…

B&Q’s new lifestyle book…

b&q enjoy lifestyle book - littlegreenshed blog

A few months ago I was approached by B&Q to give my ‘expert’ opinion on their new neutral range.  Giving a privileged pass to view the styled sets on a private Pinterest board. Such was my excitement, I spent a good few hours there!

The new B&Q book ‘Enjoy’ features regular everyday building products, styled in an unique and innovative way.  Think copper pipe and scaffold boards.  All styled perfectly with on trend navy blue and white.

Nature in the Home – a weekly pick…

Littlegreenshed blog - nature in the home

A calm scene by @Birdsform

I’ve got a bit of a thing for table and chair views at the moment.  The past few weekly picks for my nature in the home series have been quite similar.  Perhaps I am drawn to the calm serenity of them, or the fact that I would love to be sitting there right now.

This image is so pretty.  A bunch of garden foliage on top the rough hewn table.  And that House of Rym cup and saucer set ready for an early morning brew.  All complimented by that wonderful throw.  Yes, I adore this image.  Thank you @birdsform for submitting it.

Thank you all for joining me again this week.  My #natureinthehome8 is up on Instagram, so please do hop over to see.

See you next week!

Coming home…

24/03/2015

dining room 1

I am a homebird.  Cancerians are notoriously so. Adventurers, creative and wild – yep I’m all those things – but mostly I love being home.

Travel is in my blood, and mad adventures, but there is nothing more wonderful than returning home, to my own house, to my things, my bed, my loves.  I think travelling the world for many, many years, having nothing but a bag of belongings has made me want to ‘nest’ more than ever.
