Days at home doing nothing much are my favourite kind of days. You know the ones spent in dressing gowns, comfy socks and unkempt hair? Bliss. Although I spent a good chunk of my bank holiday working on a new adventure, I did manage to rest up and got down to some serious house pottering. Here’s a few pictures of the small things in our home that make me happy right now. If you like a good nosy at other folks homes (like me), you can see previous posts, here, here and here, with lots more to come!
Sunny butter dish and hot cross buns.
Our new handmade pink knitted pouf c/o Habitat serves as the perfect foot rest, snack table and seat. With the dense cotton crochet knit it adds lovely texture too and is the perfect solution for adding alternative seating to our small and cosy lounge. The muted pink/grey colour fits in well with our lounge decor but I’m sure it would suit any scheme. No doubt, when the niece and nephew come over to play, it will create hours of amusement too!
Our trusty coffee machine and pops of colour from my favourite mugs.
Love our Orla Kiely canisters to add a little retro glamour to the kitchen top. Home to cereal, biscuits and tea!
Late evening light in our bathroom. Yes, that is a teapot.
Tote bag awesomeness
Crisp white bedding and a favourite magazine
Healthy snacks on pretty vintage china.

If you’re easily tempted by a little window shopping let me introduce you to Let It Reign. The online boutique sources the very best in unique and contemporary products from established and emerging British designers including Alphabet Bags, Wolf and Moon, and Me, Me, Me to name a few.
If you’re partial to unique handpicked accessories, design-led homewares and contemporary prints then take a peek through their site for inspiration; here’s what inspired me!
That holiday went pretty darn fast, didn’t it? How was it for you? Mine was spent working a lot from home but I did manage to rest up in our humble abode (more on that in another post) as well as going for lovely long walks nearby in the sunshine.
Other highlights from the weekend included coming home to hot cross buns and hot sweet tea, roast chicken dinners, watching Philomena, Raising Arizona and The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug, eating lots of chocolate and holiday treats (and not regretting any of them) and finally testing out my new Alphabet Bags tote bag and Wolf and Moon hare necklace c/o Let it Reign - I’ve had so many nice compliments about both!
How was your weekend?
