We went to Vietnam in 2010 and despite a few challenges it has got to be my favourite ‘overseas’ trip ever. Steve took this picture of a rooftop sheltered by colourful umbrellas in Hanoi.
Whole Larder Love is my new favourite blog. Amazing photography, simple living.
Now that it is November I feel I can safely mention that Christmas is on its way. I am intending to feature interesting products which garden lovers would love to receive as gifts over the next two months, starting with this quirky Grow Your Own calendar by Bold & Noble. It is a hand pulled screen print which comes in black or green, giving month by month guidance as to when to plant and harvest.
If a calendar is not your thing but you like their style, Bold & Noble also do lovely art prints like the two below (Wild Wood and Meadow). They are giving away a free print with all orders until 17 December, which is a lovely gesture. Details here.
If I had too much money to know what to do with, this is the kind of thing I would spend it on: hand painted chinoiserie wallpaper. The amazing images featured here are by de Gournay.
