Rag Dolls – part 3

Seriously, who doesn’t just adore Scandinavian design? I mean those clean lines, gorgeous patterns, bold colours, whats not to love? Now combine that with my ongoing quest for the perfect rag doll and you have Jane Foster’s quirky creations.

Jane lives and works from her modern eco home in Devon in the UK. According to Jane her passion is “bold, simply, happy designs”. You can see this clearly reflected in her collection of charming soft toys.

Colour Inspiration

Do you ever have days where the same colour keeps popping out at you everywhere? This happens to me often, once I have noticed said colour, I will keep seeing it everywhere – and I mean everywhere: TV ads, magazines, shop windows, business cards etc etc.

This week it has been the turn of an old favourite – purple. A dark and moody colour, full of mystery and intrigue. A colour you can almost touch and smell with your eyes.

As a tribute to the lingering heavy scent of purple, I have put together a mini collection of some of my favourite purple pics of the week.

Circus Orchids

Orchids really are like the old world circus acts of the floral kingdom. Their theatrical blooms never fail to impress and their abundance and stamina are worthy of grand applause.

These intriguing jewels come in all shapes and sizes and to spite their delicate appearance are relatively easy to keep happy. They need to be loved and occasionally watered and of course constantly admired. Our dining room is the perfect spot to showcase these cheery plants . It’s a light and airy room directly off our kitchen, so anyone who is pottering about will definitely not miss them.

Much to my delight, this year all of them have decided to bloom at the same time, so our dining room looks like the Big Topper with all its new colours and stripes and dots and spots.
