My Winter Yorkshire in Instragrams

One of the best things about having my dog, Dexter, is the necessity to walk him every day. I’m a pretty nesh person by nature, and although I love loving up here in the Pennines, I’d sooner be looking at the beautiful view out of my window, than braving cold, grey or wet weather – something we get a lot of. I’m not someone to take myself off on a less that gorgeous day, just to wander about. It’s one of the reasons I decided to get a dog, to make me get out and exercise. By hook or by crook, my big black hound needs a good walk everyday, and he doesn’t care what the weather is doing.

I have to confess I was dreading my first proper winter with a grown up dog, but do you know it’s done me the power of good. With the help of the right outdoor clothing, I go off gladly every day for mine and Dexter’s constitutional.

Just look at some of the beautiful things I’ve seen over the last month. Sometimes it may well be bleak, but it’s always beautiful. All these pictures are taken within half a mile of my home. I love Yorkshire!

Kitchen Mood Board

We are in the process of installing a new kitchen. I should say the slow and chaotic process as we are doing everything ourselves (as we like to do around here). Above is a mood board of what our kitchen *will* be like when it’s finished, but it certainly isn’t at the moment.

I am not willing to share the before or during photos until it’s finished, because until I can see the light at the end of the tunnel, that might be just how it stays! I know this is just my natural pessimism talking, it will be done, just like the loft studio and bedroom before that.

With so many many decisions to be made about every single detail (just which handles, lights, tiles, flooring, wall colour? etc), I was feeling a little bogged down so decided to use my under utilised Polyvore account to help me visualise things better.

More to come, on this one!

Love and Adornment exhibition

Out and about – event news

It really feels as though my jewellery gets out and about more than I do at the moment! I have had a collection of jewellery in the Platform Gallery in Clitheroe since October, and was delighted last when when they called and asked if they could keep longer, as it’s been really popular – so if you haven’t had a chance to get over there, please do.

Last week, I sent of a collection of jewellery to the Inspired By Gallery, in The North York Moors Visitor Centre, Danby Forest. If you are planning a trip, my jewellery will be part of the exhibition until the 17th March.

Lastly, you will be able to see jewellery, cards and notobooks at the Just Makers Fair at RHS Harlow Carr, Harrogate. One of my favourite places to visit, so you might see me at the exhibition between 24th February and 15th March.

You can get full details of the above events and contact details for the venues on my Events Page.
