The Last Snowdrop Necklace & Giveaway


Because I love snowdrops so much, I decided to make a little souvenir of their beauty, that would last beyond the short season of their fragile blooms. I decided on a necklace.

The Goats In The Gully


The Avon Gorge and the land on top of it, known as The Downs, is a pretty special place. Not only is it rather spectacular to look at, it's home to everything from nesting peregrine falcons, to rare plants such as the Bristol onion, Bristol rockcress, and Bristol whitebeam trees (which you will notice all have EXTREMELY ORIGINAL names).

Serene Snowdrops


I am endlessly delighted and fascinated by snowdrops. Every year when the first shoots start appearing, I enter a full on snowdrop obsession and have to seek out as many as I can for their short flowering season.

A Mermaid Playlist


Recently I started to think about mermaid music. Music that makes me feel (more) like a mermaid, music that I think mermaids would listen to, music that could be made by actual mermaids who are masquerading as music artists. The result was this watery mermaid playlist. Do you have any favourite mermaid-y songs?

Window Wanderland


In February I went to a lovely community event called Window Wanderland. It was started in Bristol and now takes place in several areas of the city, plus a few other cities across the UK. The idea of it is that people decorate the windows of their home or business, and when darkness falls they light them up, creating an illuminated artwork, installation or scene. Something to brighten up the dark nights and bring a little light and joy to the cold, gloomy winter.
