New Cape Cod Kitchen Lights

image The White Shed 

Some time ago I bought these stunning lights via A-M of The House That A-M Built fame. 
I had been searching for quite a while but everything I liked was either too expensive or overseas.

I was delighted when A-M posted about these lights which are available through her beautiful Hampton's Style Store Cape Cod Designs.

I absolutely love them and think they finish off my kitchen perfectly.

A big thank you to Kelly Dyett of Black Sheep Photography for her amazing photographic skills once again! I can't wait to share a few more of Kelly's pics of my home with you soon.

New Favourite by Paul Bangay

image via

Last month I had a birthday.

Lucky me got this stunning book Paul Bangay's Guide to Plants from my brother and sister in law.

Most of you would know by now that I am a HUGE fan of all things Paul.

This gift could not have come at a better time. We have just pulled out some awful bushes around the veggie garden and I am looking to pretty up the area a little.

I can't stop looking through all of the stunning images by Simon Griffiths. 

If you are after a book of colour this is not for you. A lot of green, a little white and a touch of lavender. I LOVE it!

If you want your own book or would just enjoy drooling over Paul's garden designs head over to his website oh and he also has a blog.

The Great Outdoors

Love this amazing outdoor area.

Is it any surprise really? Black and White sofas, studded ottoman.............absolute perfection.

Just not sure what you do when it rains? I guess you call the butler and house staff to come and quickly carry it all inside.

Styling Fun

The weather here is awful today. Luckily I've had plenty of work to do inside.

Tomorrow I have a fun little photo shoot planned with my new stock, so I have been busy styling a number of pretty little displays to be photographed for my website.

I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend.
