Lamps make a home so cosy. One of my favourite things about winter and the dreaded short days is being able to have lamps on so much more!
We had our first family wedding this summer and I loved every minute of the weekend! Everyone was so involved in all of the preparation so we were kept busy. My cousin arranged all of the flowers and they were one of the big talking points of the wedding. You can see why! The venues already had some beautiful displays too.
Kerstin Rodgers AKA Ms Marmite runs The Underground Restaurant, and she wrote Supper Club to share some of her wonderful recipes. She opens her house up once a year for a big celebration of food! She fills her garden with yummy street food stalls and opens up all of the rooms in her house. Her bedroom was a crochet party, her daughters room a cocktail bar and her beautiful garden room housed chocolate makers and homemade jewellery for the night. The decor of her house is worthy of a book on it’s own. it was stunning but too full of people to record it properly! I managed a few photos of her kitchen displays between chocolate making talks.
I went to Bestival on the Isle of Wight this year on that hot hot weekend in September! This meant lots of beautiful skies, shadows and sillhouettes! I’ve always loved the silhouette of crowds in front of the stage lights too. I was stewarding for Oxfam and our night shift gave us the chance to see the unbelievable sunrise.
