Pink Palace #1 The Kitchen Window~

So the story goes…

Mama shipped over too much stuff from the UK. Mama also bought too much stuff in SA before said stuff arrived from the UK..

The result after putting 5 boxes in the shed..

An over cluttered but organised and color coded space!

On the brighter sided I have a good excuse in my daughter who just loves it 🙂

Our kitchen window..


These flower pots were all found in UK charity shops, rabbit was a very expensive UK purchace, owl was a recent addition from a South African charity shop and the flowers from a UK charity shop. Mama Bird bounces and she is also from Twickenham. Her basket and hat have been taken from a porcelain doll that was given to my daughter. The green dish is for my curtain tie backs at night in case you were wondering.




I don’t wanna start drilling walls so the hand towel holder has ended up on the window, with Allegra’s fairy that she got from my brother from another mother’s cuzza on my birthday, bottles from Twickenham and the Lavender that my Mom put on out house warming cake ❤

And that’s just how we roll..


Oxfam Womens Day~

So last year I was planning on scattering 1000’s of wild flower seeds into the beds of my local park in Hampshire. Well I moved and someone took over where my idea left off.

I’d like to thank Sarah Raven for BBC’s Bees, Butterflies and Blooms. Sarah took what I wanted to do to the highest level and I’m so pleased that I’m not the only one who had the same concerns regarding the diminishing bee’s and butterflies.

Today I registered to host a Oxfam fund raiser. The first thing that popped into mind was cupcakes.. Then I was like how many cupcakes could I sell? Not many! I registered anyway and knew I’d figure it all out.

Well you’ll be pleased to know I’ve figured it out. Hopefully with your help I’ll be packaging thousands of wild flower seeds for a £5 donation. All proceeds to Oxfam.

I’ll be having my Oxfam Get Together celebrating International Womens Day between now and 8 March 2012!

Please share the love if you live in the Uk I was targeting the ladies but I decided to target the men too. You all have a special woman that makes your your world go round.. If she is not your wife or the mother of your child she is your lover, she could be your precious sister or your irreplacable mother, your special aunt or your comforting granny, your best cuz or even your best friend. I suggest a donation of £5 and you’ll get the oppourtunity to get the bee’s buzzing and the flutterby’s a flapping.

Please ask for more info!!!!!


can save the life of a mother and her child by enabling Oxfam to train a midwife in Ghana.

New Hobby~

Love, love, love my new hobby. Got some material, needles, cotton and accessories. Cut open one of my pillows for stuffing and got creative.

I now need to locate stuffing and restuff the pillow~

I’m thinking my little love letters would make great fridge magnets so I tried it out.

Thoroughly enjoyed making and stuffing the hearts and they have all been given away. I have been comissioned to do a personalised one with a persons name one it. Feeling quite pleased that she thought my efforts were worth £5.
