White lumina

Image -

Success at last! I've found the most beautiful Lumina pumpkin - it's enormous and the most gorgeous creamy peach colour. My lovely boyfriend took me out to Fanny's Farm Shop in Surrey and Fanny herself showed us a great array of pumpkins. Now we just need to work out how to carve it! Can't wait to make lovely velvety pumpkin soup either. I've used Delia's recipe every time I've made it and it's just the best. It will make you long for pumpkins all year round! CXX

Alpine chic

As well as my fascination with gourds, I've also taken a liking towards mounted antlers like these ones from Aren't they lovely, v. log cabin and would be perfect with my reindeer skin rug in wintertime (which I'm not allowed to keep out because it malts so badly!). Antlers also make me think of Moose Bar in London which has some seriously cool antler chandeliers all in-keeping with it's Alpine look. CXX

Autumn bliss ♥


Image - Country Living

Where did the summer go? My last post was in August! Sorry it's been a while. Autumn is here in London and is one of my favourite times of the year. It's the chance to start getting cosy at home again...and Halloween, which I love. At the moment I'm trying to source gourds in London...I really want to try carving more than just a face! Wondering if I may have to grow my own white pumpkins next year CXX
