• swatching • I’m being a fidget I can feel it in my bones - I have a really lovely weaving commission that I’m working on - which has to stay under wraps for now - its a little daunting if I’m honest but that’s ok -  I’m fidgeting and procrastinating with the decisions about colours and textures for it - so here I am again being soothed by knitting - the calm of making really slow cloth - one quiet stitch after the other - the feel of wool through my fingers - my mind frees as I wonder how this swatch will look as a jumper, will I like it? will it fit?.... the swatch is delicious I’m already in love with the colours and texture - I’m itching to cast on for the jumper at the weekend -  my fidgety mind imagining a huge woven scarf in blue tones wrapped around my neck twice to keep off wind sprites and maybe some mittens or a hat and so it goes on.....

Che belli questi giorni lenti, con nuovi lavori che arrivano e le serate spese a correggere la prima bozza del mio romanzo. Non mi par vero, sto forse sognando? Guardare il mondo con positività mi sta davvero aiutando, i problemi restano ma li affronto meglio e più velocemente. Buon venerdì con una vista così (quanto è  favolosa la mia città!). 🌞

COME ON DADDY WE’RE WAITING. We don’t normally get the Friday feels in this house but we’re off on a mini break this weekend. As soon as he Mr gets back from work that is. I am in a bit of a quandary though, we’ve been looking forward to this break for a while now which usually means it’ll be a let down. It would seem the key to parenting is low expectations. Anyways happy Friday y’all.

19th January
It's Friday & my mums just left for London, she's been staying the past couple of days. She has done lots of baking for the children mostly but alarmed at my biscuit intake whilst nursing Marigold made a few of my favourite things to nibble on. All that sugar in biscuits she says cakes are far better for you and who am I to argue I haven't time to bake these days ! Thanks mum for this treat of scones, jam and yes clotted cream for breakfast 😉Although she probably didn't mean them for my breakfast but hey I'am a busy mum of 4 nursing a baby I will just take whatever I can get & well who wants toast and yogurt on a Friday morning when there is a plate of warm scones on offer ! Happy Friday everyone 😘

Happy Friday! Still don’t remember what it is like to be able to breathe out my nose but still, it’s Friday. Looking at this picture makes me miss my hair pre-fringe. Last night whilst blow drying my hair, I have realised the fringe is now too long so even if I have a good hair day (rare) and decide to wear it out, I can’t as it is half covering my eyes now. Getting a fringe was the worst decision I’ve made in 2018. It can only go up from here right? Right?! I also had three and half hours sleep last night. It just wouldn’t happen. My sleeping pattern has been so ruined recently that I’m hoping this is a blessing in disguise and I’ll be out like a light by 9pm tonight 🤞🏻

Why can't it be warm? WHY? That said my highly anticipatory trip home next week for @phebeljc's wedding is keeping me going - tropical climes here I come once more 😍

Mi piace dare un suono alle mie giornate. 
Ogni mese raccolgo le canzoni che hanno fatto da colonna sonora ai miei giorni in una playlist. 
E le parole più belle poi le conservo su carta, scritte a matita. {La musica è un pilastro fondamentale nella mia vita, nonostante io non sia in grado di suonare alcunché. Ma non potrei mai farne a meno. 
Sono proprio felice che con delle amiche stia nascendo un piccolo progetto di condivisione sonora ed emotiva. Vi racconteremo presto. Intanto vado a mettere su un po' di musica 😊}

Curiosity. Sense of wonder. Courage. That moment when he discovered a fairy door for the first time in his life! 🧚‍♂️🚪✨ “Blessed are the curious, for they shall have adventures.” ~ Lovell Drachman 💫

Back at my desk this morning, but only for half a day. My mum is coming to visit and I’m taking her out for a champagne afternoon tea for her birthday. I can’t wait!

Mistaken Expectation •
I never expect it to snow like it did when I was a kid. It’s always too rainy to settle. But looking out to the courtyard and watching snow and sleet falling, I still get excited and hope that it will settle...once I get back home!! •

Did you know that Kristin Scott Thomas won her first acting award as Brenda Last in A Handful of Dust in 1988?  She’s wonderful as Clemmie Churchill in Darkest Hour but I’ll never forget her as Brenda Last.  A Handful of Dust is top of my list of novels with a hauntingly awful end.  The copy in the photograph is from 1951.  Penguin added Evelyn Waugh to a select group of writers including George Bernard Shaw and D H Lawrence when they published ten books by him simultaneously.  If you swipe 👉 you can see a list of all ten.  As you’ll see from the numbers, five had been previously published but these are all 1951 editions.  One shilling and sixpence is 7.5 pence!

I met this painter on my trip to Florence. He looked every bit a painter; the corduroy blazer, the scarf around his neck, small glasses, bushy white hair, wrinkly hands tinted with paint. I asked to take his photo, he declined, but he allowed me to take a photo of his tools. I love meeting other creatives and to meet an elderly gentleman, with years of experience, in the middle of picturesque Florence, was all so exciting.
...
But here’s what I didn’t expect. To be greeted by a man filled with so much bitterness, so much hatred for his life and people around him. In poor English he made sure to diminish me in every way he could. ”Who was I to flash expensive gear in his face. And if I made that sort of money I could at least buy all his paintings as a thank you for photographing his tools. And don’t think I was better than him, and why would I visit Florence, Italians hate foreigners. The world does not need more creatives.” The words he so carelessly spat in my face were disgraceful and beneath him. Luckily I am too a woman of wisdom and have a more relaxed approach to criticism and bad behaviour, than in my 20s. So I stood silently and listened with pity rather than reacted.
...
But it made me realise the importance of a creative community. Of being a role model. Of cheering on friends, showing them love and appreciation and not resent people for having better gear or doing well. I’m tagging a bunch of people in this post to say, I think you are awesome, I think your work is amazing and keep doing what you are doing. And I’m also asking them to please tag three creatives of their choice to show that we are a community of creatives who do not treat people this way and who choose to applaud others successes and lift them higher rather than trying to break them.
...
Side note. Please be mindful when people approach you. Your words might smash someone’s dream in just a sentence or two. But know this. If you happen to come across this 40 something photographer, have the courage to approach me and want to talk, you will be greeted with a smile. And if you want to talk photography, I will make time for you. That I can promise you.

this is the face of one tired mama. If you’ve seen our Stories you’ll know Papa Oak and the kids met me in Canary Wharf after work to see the Winter Lights. It was utterly beautiful and I highly recommend it whether you have little ones or not. What I don’t recommend is getting home waaay past bedtime, only to be woken up at 2am by Baby Oak carrying his favourite dinosaur book. Apparently it was book time and no-one had told me 🙄 Anyway, off to our respective day jobs we trot and let’s count the hours to the weekend #someonebringallthecoffee

Milano: una città che ti offre il mondo, ma allo stesso tempo te lo toglie. Una città frenetica, che non si ferma mai, sempre al passo coi tempi e mai stanca di accoglierci. Milano è quella possibilità che non credevi di avere, è quella lacrima strappata sul vagone di un treno, quella melodia che parte quando la giornata ti sembra storta. Milano è quell’amore e odio che solo chi è nato altrove può comprendere. ❤️
•
Buona giornata amici. Oggi riflessioni su questa città che mi ha dato modo di buttarmi a capofitto nel mondo del lavoro, che mi ha fatto crescere, piangere e sognare. Ma adesso vi pongo una domanda. Quanti di voi vivono Milano come una seconda casa? 🙋🏻‍♀️ #feliceadesso #winterstories #esercizidibellezza

I really miss summer ☀️ I keep repeating this probably every single day, but man, winter just isn’t for me. I’m not good with the chunky knit business and not freezing your arse in knee highs & skirts 🤷🏽‍♀️ I want to wear that 👆🏼 Esp. those cute lil yellow sneaks. Now where is my sun?!

Oh Japan, oh Japan!
▫️
Japanese gardens are famed for their innate sense of beauty and precision. They could be strolling gardens meant for recreation of feudal lords or Zen gardens meant for meditation. Takamatsu's Ritsurin Kōen (koen = garden) is of the former type.
▫️
Laid out in the mid 1600s, the garden sprawls across many ponds, bridges, tearooms and pavillions. You could spend hours wandering between each area, spotting curiously shaped rocks, glancing at the vibrant springtime blooms and feeding the colourful koi fish.
▫️
Or, you could grab a cup of green tea and sit back to enjoy its famed view. Linger long enough and the waters are bound to ripple a bit as the boatman steers by.

You could spend hours wandering between each area, spotting curiously shaped rocks, glancing at the vibrant springtime blooms and feeding the colourful koi fish. ▫️ Or, you could grab a cup of green tea and sit back to enjoy its famed view. Linger long enough and the waters are bound to ripple a bit as the boatman steers by. ▫️ #RicketyRoads_Japan  🇯🇵 ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ #VisitJapan  #RitsurinKoen  #Takamatsu  #japantrip  #traveljapan  #visitjapanjp  #japantravel  #ilovejpan  #RitsurinGarden  #ptk_japan  #KunalBhatia  #ShuvajitPayne  #RicketyRoads 
The clouds have taken command of much more than just the sky these days. The lanes and trees feel their heavy arms come morning, taking hold the memory they have and blurring the edges. I can't distinguish as clearly as I used to. And sometimes, the clouds reach for my heart as well, obscuring my feelings from one to another.

But there is joy yet to be found among the clouds and fog. They remind us of things to come that can not yet be seen. And when the sun starts to fall, they let us know there is color still in the world, for they hold it so we can see and hold close the promise of light while the world begins to sleep.

The triumph of a sun set.

This week I got a dose of the stress that comes with being challenged in a new way, my first dose in a long time. I think it's so easy to live a stagnant life because it's safe. When you start to have that feeling of moving, or being pushed forward, you can sometimes meet it with some resilience and anxiety. Growth isn't comfortable and change is the one constant thing. It's so necessary to keep moving and keep striving. Be confident. Even just fake it until you make it. Embrace the process and you'll get what you need.

Although amazingly frustrating, it’s wonderful to have an artist in the family. Mother is endlessly creative, and curates that effortless style - actually effortlessly. Example here, her colour swatches for her new drawings. This, according to her is a doodle. If I did it, it would have taken three days, six attempts and numerous tantrums. The best I could do is a take a wonky picture of said doodle 🖍😍📸

Just a reminder that some things, often times, and many seasons start out really rough, quite ugly, and no where near their potential. This probably goes for people too.

After creating a piece for a social artworking event that was easy to execute but difficult to keep easy (does that make sense?!?) Lot's of restraint on my part, and I can't say I love it (the end result) even though I know it is the example it needs to be... I just released the last week of pent up snow days and stir crazy on this canvas with the leftover paint during the last 15 minutes of my 2 hours of solitary time in the last week. It doesn't really surprise me all the emotions didn't come out pretty, but I've got a good foundation to build up from now and that my friends is why we must never scrap our efforts prematurely especially when the process itself was beautiful, therapeutic, and necessary.

so a few weeks ago I mentioned that we fenced + expanded our garden (it’s 6000sq ft now.😍), & I’m wanting to go the companion planting route (@fromthegrange - I am so thankful for all your posts! I have no idea what I’m doing & they’re very helpful). I have two specific goals. I want to grow enough tomatoes to can sauce because we’ve never done that before & we eat the heck out of tomato sauce! what are some good varieties? last year I let them get a little out of control, so I need to come up with a trellising system. I also want to grow cabbage to at least make small batch of homegrown sauerkraut. I’m planning on growing a climbing flower or vine on the back fence to block the mulch pile from our neighbor’s view. it’s a shady spot- any suggestions? & I’d like to put an arbor over the gate, but I’m not sure what kind yet. SO MANY PLANS. our soil was pretty good when we moved here but it’s AMAZING after two-ish years of deep mulching. I’m into it. also yes, I’m gonna post about our new 🐐 babes (see our story) soon, don’t worry! now I gotta go cuddle them. #lifeisgood

We're currently having a little love affair with chickpeas. Here's how we've been preparing them: toss them in a hot pan with a little olive oil (or coconut oil) and season them with a generous amount of paprika & garlic powder. Cook them for a few minutes, stirring every so often, until they're fragrant & crispy. Take it from us, they're pretty addictive. We'll be showing you a few different ways to use them in recipes, so stay tuned! {Styled & produced by @sprigcreative; 📷: @__mattgibson__ }

A carpet of the stuff. This luxe display of blush velvet, warm dark moss and brass touches is a highlight of our styling adventure so far. We took inspo from the scent @northeastchandlery created for @notyouraveragewedding_ show and we ran with it. This look could be recreated and expanded in SO MANY WAYS - so if you love it get in touch 💋

I think I’m possibly the most laid back bride to be ever, but I also think I’ve been in denial about how much there actually is to do 🙈
This morning I got together with Ma Eade and we did some practice table decorations and other bits and bobs and it was much fun, but I think I’m going to need more than just the one day I’ve currently got booked off before the wedding to sort it all.
Little hint: our wedding will involve a lot of gypsophila because obviously 🌿

Trying to take moments of calm in between talking to lots of inspiring women with amazingly creative ideas this week. I only had a coughing fit in one call this week, so I’m taking that as a win 😉

I’ve been speaking to lots of people right at the start of their coaching journey this week, and found myself explaining my simple, slow approach to marketing to almost all of them. And as this is something everyone can benefit from, I thought I’d write The Slow Marketing Manifesto ⭐️
•
It goes into my core beliefs that I base my client work around - simplifying, being purposeful, being valuable and being human. I hope it will help you to change the way you think about your own marketing.

The link’s in my bio, now who’s getting on board with the manifesto? 💪🏼

Want to know what it looks like being me? Something like this. Not holding poppy seed heads upside down or clutching bunches of ammi. I know everyone is doing digital detox these days. I know screen time changes the neurological development of children and adolescents. I know I know. But when people ask me how I juggle being a psychologist-seedmonger, it’s because of this. My life in my hand. I don’t really remember life before the internet but I sure as hell couldn’t have done this if I’d had to print seed catalogues and actually answer a phone. I couldn’t have learned floristry without @saipua’s blog and @ifimade online courses. And I wouldn’t have met some incredible people without @instagram.

@konditori is the most adorable little coffee shop. They truly have their own style, which is really hard to build! NYC based this is their first shop in #Philly. I think they're going to do just fine.⠀
.⠀
In other news, I've been running around like a chicken without a head, trying to figure out what to prioritize first in my business. Not having a deadline can make things hard. There are things I have to get done that don't really have specific urgency.⠀
.⠀
FYI, I'm going to Creative Mornings tomorrow (@philadelphia_cm). It's a breakfast series that includes a 20-minute art related talk based on a different theme each month. Tomorrow, they're getting doughnuts from the only doughnut shop that matters @federaldonuts. (So, I'm DEFINITELY showing up).⠀
.⠀
Secretly, I really want to give a talk here one day. I have no idea what it would be about though! Any ideas?⠀

Yay or nay?
Currently a snow angel but designed as a guardian angel. Made to look as though she’s ancient and magical, a little totem to keep you safe and remind you help is always near. 
I made it yonks ago and haven’t done anything with it. I’ve been wearing her all week and am planning on tweaking the design when I get home. 
I want to tinker with the bail and make the back thumb shaped so she’s tactile and can be rubbed when the wearer’s worried.

January, is the month to embrace the citrus fruit.  Make marmalade, sip hot lemon drinks, spike spiced salads with lime juice and pause to enjoy how the light hits the bright colours just so and transforms a grey winter day.

✋ Парфюм для работы

Многие знают, как порой трудно одеться под дресс-код для рабочих будней. Выбор аромата для офиса также сложен и требует внимания. 
Необходим очень легкий, едва уловимый аромат цитрусовых или растений, которые создадут приятный запах вокруг, но не будет перебивать дыхание. Наверняка с Вами случалось так, что коллега за соседним столом надушился таким едким парфюмом, что дышать в офисе было невозможно. Не повторяйте таких же ошибок.

Who inspires you?
This is a beautiful card by my friend Elizabeth @bottlebranch. You might know her as @ehpyle. She's a talented lady who makes the most beautiful products for her etsy shop. When people see her cards in my home, they come closer for a better look. That's how nice they are (The cards, not the people. But the people are nice, too 😉).
So, today, a little gush about Elizabeth. She is fulfilling a dream of mine; to have an etsy shop selling cards inspired by flowers. I have watched her from the very first days of her shop, to now selling wholesale and at markets. I have watched her photos grow in beauty and sophistication. She's a class act. And she'll probably blush furiously when she reads this 😂.
Elizabeth inspires me. So many of you inspire me. Who inspires you on here? Who is your role model? I'm pretty sure if I had to name one person on here as a role model, Elizabeth would be it.
I'd love to hear who your 'one person' would be, and why. Let's have a little IG inspiration celebration! 😊 💕 it'll make you (and them) feel all warm and fuzzy. 😁

Il 2018 mi ha già insegnato una lezione importante: è inutile tentare di cambiare una persona che si comporta in un certo modo da tutta la vita, perché continuerà a non capire e ad agire come ha sempre fatto, non accorgendosi delle conseguenze su chi gli sta vicino. Piuttosto, è meglio fare un lavoro su se stessi e cominciare a lasciarsi scivolare di dosso certe cose. Che non vuol dire non preoccuparsi più, abbandonare o voltare le spalle. Vuol dire semplicemente mettere la propria felicità davanti ai problemi degli altri, perché quando quei problemi, che non ti appartengono, ti bussano alla porta ed hanno la capacità di distruggerti, allora è chiaro che non si può andare avanti così. Bisogna difendersi. C'è una sottile differenza tra chiedere aiuto, un consiglio o un conforto, e scaricare il proprio peso sulle spalle di qualcun altro.

It's easy to get wrapped up in our everyday tragedies. It's easy to get upset when something doesn't go our way and get upset at the person in front of us who's job it is to just be that service for those convenient things. 
Ordering room service and having a hotel employee unwrap the freshly made food is a massive privilege. I want to remember that I am no different from this hardworking person standing in front of me. They deserve to be treated just as I would want to be treated. Remembering the people who do things everyday, most of which I probably don't even notice, to make my day better is important. Kindness is a part of my goals for the year. Kindness is easily over looked. Kindness is important. (#amonthofkindness, #amonthofkind)
