about me

My photo
Married to Nick for 13 years, with 2 children; Sabrina - 12 and Dominic - 11. I am a girlfriend through and through in that I love girly things and anything that celebrates the essence of being a woman. I love vintage, shabby chic, the country and try my best to do my bit for the environment. SO yes...we have 3 bins in our house and try our best to recycle! I believe that with everything in life, the closer we stick to nature, the better off we'll be. I would love to have a balance in life, but have learnt that balance is not always possible, so strive for significance instead, in the hopes that that will be just as meaningful, and the rest will hopefully follow.

Seeing red…

Lord almighty I can’t believe it!  Windows Live Writer, where have you been all my blog thirsty days?  You are the wind beneath my blogger wings I think, because SERIOUSLY, blogger was killing me!  Maybe just maybe, my blog dreams will come true and this will be the year where I fit posts into my hectic life, because YOU have made it so easy,possible, achievable!

So about the spread…..i’m back tracking to December, back to the month where tinsel ROCKS, red is the rage and reindeer ears are THE fashion accessory to die for!
This was my table from this year’s “IT’S A WRAP”…gift wrapping will never be the same again, for me at least.  I love sipping sherry with my home girls to the sound of sticky tape, paper tearing, and ribbons being wrapped.  This was our third year, and December’s just won’t be the same without it. ever.again.  It’s a KEEPER!
Fast forward to February, and looking at this table reminds me that Valentines is around the corner.  No, I’m not ‘gung ho’ for it, but I have always loved the idea of embracing every special occasion that comes our way.  You keep them simple and low key, but you recognize the love, no?...just to break the monotony of …well…everyday life….yes?
So whilst Christmas is just a distant memory, I’m still seeing RED.  Maybe a cheese platter, red roses and a bottle of bling rose might be FUN!!

Us Crazy Chickens at Christmas!

  1. Shoe, you were definitely MIA here in blogland, kind of the same as I have been last year. Such a great idea to wrap pressies together. And a cheeseboard with preserve figs is my ultimate favourite.
