five on friday – my weekly faves #lifestylelinkys

I was inspired by my friend Leigh of Hines Sight blog to try out the Five on Friday – feature: to share five things I am loving this week. And there are plenty of things, quite literally, this week as I am still furnishing our house and trying to make it into a home. The host blog for the idea is North Carolina (US) based, so I am bringing some British faves to that mix. So here we go, my first weekly faves:

London map-inspired padded pin board

1. My London map-inspired padded pin board which I managed to hand on the wall and the Mamma Mia musical tickets for next week that I bought for my daughter as birthday present

Wimbledon Tennis

2. Wimbledon tennis – I was too late for the tickets, but we’ve been watching plenty of matches on TV and of course enjoying some strawberries n’ cream and bubbly… (Image

patio set and an umbrella

3. New patio set and an umbrella. As England has been rather rainy this summer and there is sunshine forecast for next week, I am dreaming of nice BBQs and family meals outside to the tune of some nice background music

Bodum coffee grinder

4. My new Red Bodum Bistro Coffee Grinder
– so we can have a fresh brew of Starbucks in the morning. As my kitchen colour scale is grey and white, I have added some splashes of red, such as this grinder, red tea pot and kitchen paper roll holder…

Garden Collage


5. New garden plants: two bay leaf trees and lavender to the border in front of the house and plenty of different buxus topiary for the entrance and the patio. Now I am just waiting for my new planters for my lovely topiary…Five on Friday
