Roses Farm: A dreamy British renovation

This beautiful cottage Roses Farm, is similar in style to my parents old cottage in Wales, and seeing these photos really makes me miss the old family home. I love this style of cottage with the exposed beams, inglenook fireplaces and flagstone flooring, there is something so cosy and inviting about them..... and not a sterile surface in sight :)

Snuggling up in front of a blazing fire, or sitting around the table in the dining room waiting for the aga to finish (slowly) cooking dinner. with a cuppa or glass of wine in hand..... bliss!

Literally my dream kitchen

Cabin Fever....

As the days get shorter and the nights draw in I find myself finally feeling comfortable in my skin again. I am not a big hot weather person nor am I a fan of the summers revealing clothing (on me) and how exposed it makes me feel. So when Autumn arrives along with the chunky cardigans, boots and scarves I feel finally at peace. But I also find myself craving the smell, taste and sight of the forest, and around this time of year my Pinterest account gets full of the most beautiful A-frame houses. So whilst sat curled up in a blanket (and sipping a fine Single malt), I thought I would share a selection with you guys.

Hope you are enjoying the season, what ever it may be in your part of the world xx

The 'Third Eye Hat" from HoneyWood and Lone Hawk

These stunning "third eye" hats are the result of a collaboration between Lone hawk hats and Honeywood vintage..... and I don't know about you but I just adore them!

I have never really been a confident hat wearer but my aim for this winter is to finally pluck up the courage to rock a hat ..... I may have found the perfect one to help me on my way. Each hat is a one off, having been handmade and hand embroidered by the talented duo.....

These beauties, plus many more stunning designs, are available online through both Lone Hawk hats and the fabulous Honeywood Vintage
