These here pages are a royal rumble of thoughts and findings, curated loving (and often from the comfort of my pyjamas...) in the hopes of entertaining and inspiring.
This wee blog started out as a handy way to document my move from the UK to the Netherlands, sharing with my family and friends my journey into the unknown. These days, having carved out a place for myself in the farthest edges of the Netherlands, slowly building up aspects of my life and tackling the usual obstacles of starting from scratch (Ik ben Nederlands aan het leren... yup, what she said!), my blog has developed into a treasure trove of all things handmade, design-led and visually up-lifting.
Coming from a background in costume design and textiles I live for gorgeous fabrics, elaborate and dramatic designs and enjoy creating things with my own hands. Where I once had an incredibly creative career (and still miss working in the wonderful world of theatre and ballet), this blog is now my main outlet where I share my current projects and celebrate all things crafty, fashion focussed and inspiring, sprinkled here and there with literature, sweet treats and adventures a plenty!
At a gigantic five foot one, a few freckles and a light sprinkling of pixie dust on top, my perspective on life may be presumed small but curiosity often gets the better of me. I can be found exploring the ruins of an ancient castle, trawling through a dusty old book shop or stuffing my face with a cupcake (or two).
