Coffee Morning At Strandfield

I met my mum this morning for coffee at Strandfield House, I usually go there once a week, its one of my favourite places to visit.

Strandfield house is a florist/garden centre, it’s also a farm shop/coffee shop/furniture shop/antiques/ bits n bobs. Jesus can you blame me for loving it, Strandfield truly has it all.

The coffee shop has a colourful vintage style to it, gorgeous coffee and full of homemade goodies.

The delph is a mismatch of china cups and saucers, really beautiful, you can also purchase a variety of different sets.

The farm shop is  full of fresh fruit and vegetables.

The Garden centre, has a huge variety of plants and flowers to choose from.

Is Winter Over Yet?

As soon as Christmas is over, I feel myself pushing  towards spring, cannot wait for the bright evenings. Christmas this year was a mess and that’s putting it nicely, I was snowed in, no water for TWO WEEKS, had the flu and my family were all very sick Christmas day.

The only ones that enjoyed the snow in my house were the dogs.

So Roll on Spring, roll on the flowers, roll on the sun, roll on bright evenings.

Painted white furniture and wood mixed together brightens up this small room. The yummy soft pink colour on the walls adds a fresh feeling and the flowers bring it all together. Dulux, paint colour, Rice Flower is one of my favourite pinks for a bedroom.

Yellow is all about spring, bring the outside into your home, you walls will come to life with charming bird wallpaper.

Soft and enchanting  floral and bird wallpaper from Laura Ashley.
