Spring has Sprung at Sweet Days HQ x

At last we have colour at Sweet Days HQ.
I just love the colours of Spring flowers, they seem so much more delicate than their Summertime cousins.
I have planted so many of late, grape hyacinths and tete a tetes alongside naturalising daffodils on our lane as well as splitting masses of snow drops.
In years to come these gorgeous flowers will spread and carpet this lovely space we live in.
Spring in all of its loveliness is here to stay for a while and she is a welcome sight.

Fabulousness in Val D'Isere

We recently spent a week in the wonderful ski resort of Val D'Isere and what an amazing time we had.
The snow was quite unbelievable, so much so they said it was one of the heaviest falls they had had in years.  
To say it was cold was an understatement, -27 on one day and the temp did not not get below -10 the whole time we were there.
However what this meant was we pretty much had bright blue skies on most of the days, and the skiing was simply brilliant.
We hired a gorgeous chalet, which had a wonderful log fire and was in such a fabulous spot, right on the slopes which meant you could ski to and from it every day.
All in all a fabulous ski holiday.
Here are some pics to show you just what a beautiful part of the world this amazing place is.
A lovely week spent with amazing company.
Val D'Isere we will most definitely be back.

Wedding Flowers Magazine Feature

I am really delighted & thrilled that the gorgeous wedding of Vanessa & Ian's has been featured in Wedding Flowers Magazine.
This Sweet Days and Roses wedding was a real joy to work on, and I added so many individual finishing touches & little details that made this wedding so gorgeous.
I loved working with the lovely bride Vanessa and her & Ian make such a gorgeous couple.
I got to work alongside some amazing people, from the fabulous photographer Tobiah Tayo, Ian Lloyd Florist & his fabulous team, & the lovely Rebecca at Vintage Tea's & RSVP's and many more.
It is always such a treat to see your hard work featured in a lovely glossy magazine.
A gorgeous day for everyone involved and a beautiful wedding of Vanessa & Ian's that was a day to remember.

Blues, Whites, & an old tin bucket x

I do love the colours in the gorgeous flower bouquets I have dotted around our home at the moment.
Blues, White and Greens always look so wonderful together, a really lovely vibrant, fresh colour combination.
At this time of year we all need a colour hit as outside tends to be a little brown and grey outside, so beautiful Spring blooms give you a sense of something to look forward to.
The snowdrops now are also showing their little faces all around the garden & verges.
Still a while off before we have the wonderful colour hit of Spring outside, so for the time being I have Spring in doors.
I especially love using old tin buckets and the silvery grey of the tin really compliments this pretty colour scheme.
November just gone, we planted over 2,500 Spring Bulbs in and around our land so this year hopefully should be a riot of colour.
Beautiful Spring & all its wonderful colour, one of my favourite times of the year.

Happy Happy Days ! x

What a wonderful week this has been.
Not only are all the bulbs shooting up in the garden and in the verges but we have had the best news ever with regard to our lovely home.
I bought my little cottage 7 years ago, it was in a very sorry state and had been empty for a couple of years and was totally neglected, damp and un loved.
However I could see what a beautiful spot this sub standard little house was in and I could see that one day it had the possibility of being a beautiful family home.
After a long old planning process and taking our first planning refusal to Appeal, we found out this week that we have in fact been granted planning permission for our beautiful stone, oak and Welsh slate home.
We are so delighted that the Appeal Officer saw exactly what we are trying to achieve and has granted us permission.
What better way to celebrate than with Spring Flowers, the whole house is now full to the brim with beautifully scented Hyacinths.
I am so delighted to now have our dream come true, as I believe this beautiful spot deserves a beautiful house.
Happy Days !

Beautiful Vintage Trinket Box

Happy New Year Everyone !
What a wonderful start to the year it has been so far, so many exciting things are happening and lots to look forward to.
I had to share with you a recent gorgeous little find of mine, this adorable French antique trinket box.
The little satin blue cushion inside is in such wonderful condition considering its age, and there is only the smallest little chink in one of the glass panels.
Such a pretty little treasure .... I adore it.
I hope you all had a wonderful start to the New Year, and I hope that 2012 is a wonderful happy New Year for you all.
