I am working really hard on some new logo's/ website ideas for 'A Harem Of Peacocks' at the moment and really wanted your input... A little 'market research' as it were. 

When you come over to read my posts where do you generally come from? For example is it via Blogger, Blog loving, Email or is it more likely to be via a social media link like Facebook, Instagram or Pinterest?

I know for me personally I tend to read mostly via social media nowadays and i'm really interested to see if it has changed for you all too? Thank you very much in advance and I hope you've all had a lovely weekend!

The perfect car boot find to start the season. I would go as far as to say that is one of my best car boot finds ever!  An original 1950's copy of Bambi, followed by a perfect moment of synchronicity, as I spotted a family of real life Bambi's, just feet away from me on my morning Forest walk!
I have been humming this ever since.... Happy April!

 I am honoured to have been interviewed by the lovely Lindsey at 'Hello Mr Rabbit'! Such a beautiful blog which I'm sure you're all already familiar. If not then click the picture below, hop on over and get to know us both a little better.

Charming Gardeners

"Let us be grateful to the people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom." Marcel Proust


My souls been blossoming with the arrival of Spring. All the Magnolia, Blackthorn and Cherry blossom is so early, unexpected and breathtakingly beautiful. A bit too distracting when trying to drive to work!

What ever your weather, I hope you're enjoying March. xx

Black Cloche...Black Cat

 Okay so perhaps he is Grey, but I won't tell if you don't!? 

Yes!...That is a Cat on my umbrella! 

A special leaving present from all those beautiful friends at Beyond Retro (past and present). 
So now my dream of owning a 'world famous James Smith & Sons' brolly is a reality and I really can not express how grateful I am for such a thoughtful and touching gift! 

Thank you all for giving me so many amazing experiences, happy memories and fabulous friends. My time with you was a highlight of my London living and now every time it rains I will think of you.
