Hello again! Just a brief note to say thank you to you lovely people for dropping by and leaving your sweet comments - so much appreciated. You'll have noticed that I am not really visiting your blogs to say hello right now.... but I promise that once this smelly thesis is out of the way (28th May!!) I will be back to regular blogging/visiting and very much look forward to catching up with all your news! Thought I would share this adorable disposable cake stand with you - I could never throw it away! And the doilies - so pretty! Thanks again for your comments and support : )

Hello..anyone out there??

Hello..I'm not sure if anyone stops by's been a long time and I keep meaning to come on here and write up a little post to tell you what I am up to and why the long gap in posting..I am doing a Masters and am in my final year with the deadline for my thesis coming towards me like a high-speed train so I am extremely busy trying to get it written up and it is occupying most of my time right now...boring!

Anyway, the end is in sight and I am feeling so excited about having it out of my way and out of my hair and really looking forward to a lovely summer! It's the May bank holiday here and while I did some work this weekend I also managed to go out for a couple of nice lunches and am just back from the garden centre and lunch at Avoca.

I bought some beautiful hydrangeas for the garden and a little Japanese maple. I also bought some really pretty mugs in Avoca and was really excited to see they are stocking PIP Studio goods...this is a wonderful web store based in Amsterdam with the most gorgeous homeware...bedding, cushions, porcelain..a veritible feast of goodies that I hope you will love as much as I do!! It has been on my list to share with you for some time...check out the PIP website - I dare you not to fall in head over heels for everything!!

I have some home projects to share with you but not quite yet...I love the wallpaper below as well as the cushions and hope to buy a couple of bits and bobs once I am finished my thesis...
