“May the sun bring you energy by day

May the moon softly restore you at night

May the rain wash away your worries

May the breeze blow new strength into your being

May you walk gently through the world and know its beauty all the days of your life” -Apache Blessing

May is here! Time to get our those picnic baskets and checked blankets.

We hope yours is filled with lots of fun and joy!

~Elderflower Cordial recipe~

Ingredients:

Makes about 2 litres

  • About 25 elderflower heads
  • Finely grated zest of 3 unwaxed lemons and 1 orange, plus their juice (about 150ml in total)
  • 1kg sugar
  • 1 heaped tsp citric acid (optional)

Directions:

Place the flower heads in a large bowl together with the orange and lemon zest.

Bring 1.5 litres water to the boil and pour over the elderflowers and citrus zest. Cover and leave overnight to infuse.

Strain the liquid through a scalded jelly bag or piece of muslin and pour into a saucepan. Add the sugar, the lemon and orange juice and the citric acid (if using).

Heat gently to dissolve the sugar, then bring to a simmer and cook for a couple of minutes.

Use a funnel to pour the hot syrup into sterilised bottles. Seal the bottles with swing-top lids, sterilised screw-tops or corks.

~TO READ~

milk and honey is a collection of poetry and prose about survival. It is about the experience of violence, abuse, love, loss, and femininity. It is split into four chapters, and each chapter serves a different purpose, deals with a different pain, heals a different heartache. milk and honey takes readers through a journey of the most bitter moments in life and finds sweetness in them because there is sweetness everywhere if you are just willing to look.

The breakout novel from the critically acclaimed author of the short story collections Who I Was Supposed to Be and Why They Run the Way They Do— It is a dark, beautifully rendered, and gripping novel about coping, about coming-of-age, and about forgiveness. It is also a beautiful illustration of how one family, broken by tragedy, finds healing.

Have a blissful month of May.

February is such a wonderful time for love, to rejoice and share with our loved ones. With Valentines day and leaves slowly starting to turn green, its a time for lots of things to begin to blossom.

Here are a few of our favourite things this month..

 

~ The intertwining cold freshness of winter and the earlier sunrise and awakening of spring ~

We are loving our Trafalgar porcelain range especially against the French mosaic table top. In stunning fresh blue and white- the perfect must have to any country home.

Fancy some D.I.Y? Why not create a sweet mug shelf and have your favourite Powell Craft set arranged with tea cups, side plates, one of our tea pots and our porcelain mugs hung up on cute pegs? See below for some rustic design inspiration..

We love the jar and fresh flower combo ~ for a sweet country look for the home.

Why not pick youself some fresh flowers on your way home or treat yourself to a bunch at the florist… you always deserve some self love! Arrange them nicely in a jar and pop them in your favourite place in your home.. simple pleasures are the best!

Our dressing gown and ladies apron in our Hummingbird print is stunningly elegant, yet the turquoise bird gives it that pop of fresh colour. Have your girlfriends swooning as you have them round for afternoon tea, or feel luxurious as your dance around your home like a hummingbird in your silky soft gown.

 

Wishing you a month filled with love, peace & joy!
