What a mixed bag June was! In every single way. As always though, here I am focussing on the loveliness and what better start than a glorious sunset and my favourite wild flowers. I’ve been using my camera with a manual setting on focus more and more. I have to say I am really happy with the results for the most part. It feels like a small achievement worth celebrating!
The story of June is mainly a flowery, grey sky, busy one. We had lots of building works and are now in full on decorating mode. I’m really excited to show you the finished results soon! I took a trip to London on a very rainy day, not so very photogenic but still a lot of fun. If you missed it I went to a celebration party for the 10th anniversary of Sophie Conran’s collection for Portmerion, you can read about it here.
June also sees most of my garden flowers all in one go. The bunch of gorgeousness pictured below is entirely homegrown! I hosted a Silver Pebble workshop around my dining table. Emma Mitchell came and demonstrated what can only be described as magic in silver making. And after the initial ‘fear’ everyone made a treasure or more to keep. Book yourself onto one of her workshops post haste people! It was brilliant! I’ve misplaced my photo though so will link to this one Emma shared instead…
A few more lovely things to note… These cards from Love Betty Ann, with catchy phrases they are worth a look. This necklace from Wanderlustlife which is a limited edition available now. £5 per necklace purchased is being donated to CoppaFeel, a breast cancer awareness charity who you can read more about here. And this gorgeous print from Wildflower Illustration Co (their name alone is enough to draw me in) who produce a beautiful range of prints and personalised stationery.
And then to end the month I met my friend Emma of A Quiet Style for tea and cake in a cafe with the best table top I’ve seen for ages. Yes this confirms my utter immersion in Instaculture and the search for pretty drinks on lovely tables with gorgeous light. I can live with that.
Here’s to July!
