Hush Autumn/Fall 2010

Hush
Star pyjamas by Hush
Sloppy Joe dress by Hush
Vintage rose pyjamas by Hush
Pure Silk pyjamas by Hush
Striped bed socks by Hush
This week for my 'shops i love' page I bring you Hush, my favourite Luxe loungewear boutique for pyjamas, robes, and knitted accessories. I just adore their comfy but flattering cotton flannel pyjamas, with a wide leg low rise trouser and oversized shirt with scoop hem and breast pocket. They are perfect for chilly nights in front of the fire. I admit to having quite a few pairs that arrive in a matching bag, enveloped in tissue paper and placed in the chicest of gift boxes. How can a girl resist that?

Have a sweet day!

The New Covent Garden Market

Cream berries



Twig Bowl



Birch vase


If you live in or around London I highly recommend a visit to the New Covent Garden Market, situated within a five minute walk of Vauxhall station in south London. It's open Monday to Friday from 3.00am to 11.00am and 4.00am to 10.00am on Saturdays.

"New Covent Garden Market is the largest fruit, vegetable and flower market in the UK. Located in the heart of the capital, we pride ourselves on being the focus for food and flowers in London and we are the choice of many leading chefs, florists, restaurants, hotels, schools and hospitals. With over 200 businesses on site, offering the highest quality, range and service, we know you’ll find the right company here to supply all your catering and floristry needs."

My favorite business at The New Covent Garden Market is C Best, who sell a dizzying array of vases, candle holders and props used by the top party planners in the UK. Christmas is no exception and they have the largest baubles I have ever seen! You'll find wreaths that are glittered and feathered, ribbons, beads and feathered birds to adorn your gifts. As they open at 3.00am, I have been known to get a little shopping done before work!

On a recent visit I picked up some berries, a twig bowl, a realistic looking bark vase and some brown tissue paper for my "Winter Woodland Christmas".

Have a sweet day!

This week on Scrapbook Dreams, I continue my theme of a "Winter Woodland Christmas" with these gorgeous images of pine cones that would be perfect in my Winter Woodland setting. I went for a walk in the woods last month and collected a bunch of pine cones, so I will have to have a go at painting a few of them white, screwing eyelets into some and clustering the others into a wreath or tree.

Lavender Room

Birdie Paperweight
Heart Bowl by Lavender Room
Moroccan Bowl by Lavender Room
Lotus Flower tealight by Lavender Room
Distressed Wooden Photo Frame by Lavender Room
This week for my 'shops i love' page, I bring you Lavender Room. Set up in 2003 by friends Nicky Sanderson and Jenny Atherton, with the goal to become their customers’ favourite shop with old-fashioned values of good and personalised customer service.

When I get a chance to head down to Brighton, this is one store that always makes my heart flutter when I go in. Situated in the infamous lanes (adorable pedestrianised streets full of independent boutiques selling clothes, accessories, home wear and hand made fudge!), it is the cutest store with white roses at the entrance leading to a floaty white interior.

Inside you'll find vintage tables with delightfully decorative home accessories, pretty displays of candles, frames, glasses and cake stands on the shelves and a couple of rails of well chosen must-have pieces for the season along with bags, shoes and jewelery. If you ever get the chance to visit the relaxed and easy going town of Brighton on the South Coast of England, don't miss this delightful boutique!

Until then, check out the eye candy online at Lavender Room.

Have a sweet day!
