Today is our 11th Wedding Anniversary...
I just thought of posting this today to say that I am truly blessed to have spent the greater part of my life with him and I look forward to all the wonderful years still to come...

I bought him "not on the high street " gift but it's really lovely present which i think he might use it everyday..(he likes to sit and enjoy nice cuppa coffee while studying)

I love the quote on this mug because for me in marriage whether it's a magical day out there or the worst race of your still have to KEEP CALM AND CARRY ON!

Happy 11th Anniversary!

How Could I Resist?...

How can you resist a carboot sales where you can buy vintage treasure or get a barely used item in a very low price...

If you are a regular car boot sales shopper, you may find the allure of the "precious junkies" and the sale is too much to resist...just like the one below!

Happy Half-Term!

A touch of Scandinavian style...

Last month I made a stop at one of beautiful interior shop in Edinburgh. I'm amazed at all the things they have! Want to take a peek?...

 Their displays were fabulous and the items in the store were even more amazing in person. I'm soo glad they featured Greengate! One of my favourite brand from Danish company.

Everything in this shop is absolutely adorable including these eye-candy melamine beaker and the stoneware Spot Yellow jug.

The bright colors on the stoneware will add sparkle to your kitchen decor

Greengate Apron

Bright and cheery quilt....a great selection of beautifully designed fabric

Fabric by the metre. They have gorgeous, old fashion florals plus a good range of oilcloth

Some of them have beautiful pattern taken from an old French design

Check out that wonderful retro feel teatowel. I loved that!

Everything is soooo pretty...and sooo tempting!

I used to buy lots of Greengate tin boxes from Korea. During the trip, i ended buying this two tin picnic boxes in the Millie design. They will look lovely on my kitchen shelf

Pretty paper napkins to spruce up my place setting...colorful Maggie White, gorgeous Wendy Pale Blue and Millie White 

It's fun to mix the melamine mug in Maggie Blue, Asta Pink and Maggie fact the more the merrier!

Hopefully one day I will be able to carry this delightful range of products in my store.
 I hope you enjoy this little window shopping trip!!

Breath of Spring

It's Spring time in Manchester but we had wet and cold weather for the past 2 weeks. The weather kinda cloudy these days and the rain fall unstoppably...It seems that our winter is everlasting. I feel like napping under the blanket again after the last snow...

This was my first experience of Spring...and this season brings the thought of flowers. Spring is so beautiful and inspiring for me. We've had beautiful sunshine in April and been out to some great parks to snap nice pictures ...I decided to make a post and share with you.

Sign of early Spring

Everything started to bloom in a short time...its daffodil

We flocked to beauty spots almost everyweek to feel the spring breeze.
