Autumn styling ....

Despite the feeling Summer had a revival this
past week, Autumn has really made its appearance.
For me the more reason to cosy up my home,
especially my 'new corner' in our living room.

Now all our boys have flown the nest, a very large
dining table wasn't necessary any more. 
At least not all the time, so my husband made me a new one, 
keeping the large tabletop standby when they are all at home.

I do love to make something new from an old piece of furniture.
We already established that the top of our garden table had its
best time, but the iron frame was still good enough as a base for a
new smaller dining table.

We bought some scaffolding wooden boards and
my husband made a new tabletop out of them.
He did exactly the same with the frame of our
garden bench.
With the two new dining chairs we also bought, all this
gives our dining area a whole new atmosphere. 

I'm so very happy with the end result.
Although I have a lovely working space upstairs, this new corner
and my birthday present (a very fast laptop) makes that I hardly use it nowadays.
This is now my favourite (working)spot!

The mirror behind the table is something I never get tired of but I've
added hooks on it, to make room for some (autumnal) displays.
At this point throwing all my good intentions to declutter overboard,
but I just can't help myself.

You can find the Hanging Basket here on our website

I made the little Rosehip Wreath myself, you can see below how ...

The French Linen Table Runner is also available (in two different sizes) at our Shop which you can find here

These are not the only new items on our website, here are the other ones ....

I love this Mini Butler Tray , not only to display Autumn at its best, but also a handy accessory in the kitchen 

Another lovely item for your kitchen is this Wire Iron Egg Basket

And when the nights are drawing in, this Knee-table to have a hot chocolate
 or meal in front of the TV.

In the meantime I enjoy everything the garden still has to offer

You can find the Bellied Jug and Country Diary on our Website

And in anticipation for the real life friends of this one
to make a regular appearance

You can find the Wallsticker Robin here

I also added some items to our Sale
in order to make room for the 'C' word 🙊 

But let's enjoy Autumn first, have a lovely weekend!



  1. Such lovely ideas Anita and beautiful products that you source. I love how we continue to adapt as our life chapters change before us. Wonderfully written and truly inspiring x

    1. Awww ... thanks Molly. I'd like to think I adapt well. But to tell you the truth ... I think that's because they still having their meal here at home a few times a week! Xx
