Everyday Moments..

This year's handmade, foraged & upcycled festive mantlepiece.. 
Pretty florals fresh off the line and still warm from the summer sun..
A little handmade 'Flowersaurus' awaiting the finishing touches before going under the tree..
And a very special Christmas stocking in the making.. Hand printed with violas from the garden..
The cutest little hand-me-down, (now strawberry strained) t-shirt.. and a peg in each hand.
Our lone zucchini who defied the odds (and the slater bugs) to grow big and happy..

Much Love


  1. I love your mantlepiece, it's looking lovely. And the decorated twigs are a great idea too. The t-shirt is excellent, so is the stocking, what a novel way to decorate it. I hope you enjoy the rest of the week Sophie. CJ xx

  2. So much beauty here, as always! xx

  3. Beautiful mantle vignette for Christmas, Sophie x

  4. OMGosh! That stocking! I've always wanted to try that but never have! I may have to do this with my girls for family Christmas presents, just beautiful!!!

  5. Love this series of posts you do.
    All beautiful.
    A post on how to make that stocking !? X

  6. Ooooo I love that flowersaurus! My munchkin is a bit obsessed with Peppa pig and wants a dinosaur like George..I might have to try n make her one!

  7. so lovely to see that southern light. here we are enjoying the subdued hues of a winter glow.

  8. Wow I love the flowersaurus!!! And as for your Christmas stocking - that is gorgeous. I'd love to know how you've done it. My sister in law only said the other day that her 4 year old daughter is obsessed with gerbras and roses - I wish I had some more time before Christmas to make her a Gerbrasaurus!!! And the t shirt is perfect - used as the designer intended!!! Thanks for sharing Sophie

  9. Hi Sophie
    I've been reading your blog for a long time and wanted to take this chance to say a big thank you for blogging as it's really been helpful to visit in with someone like minded! It's hard sometimes doing things a but differently but then when I read your posts, I see the joy and beauty in being removed from all the pressures of the western world and embracing simple living. Thank you so much. Lots of love to you.

  10. Our new house has a mantelpiece and I cant wait to decorate it. Yours always looks so lovely. x
