Quiet coffee shops like this will always be my favorite place to read, journal, blog and edit photos. Where do you feel most inspired?

HELP!!! I desperately need your votes, tips, and general hand-holding as I weigh the options for curtains in our family room! Joking aside (since clearly this debate is hardly earth-shaking), I’d love for you to check out the full saga in my IG Stories and leave your opinions there for the next 24 hours✨
Available ✨ Half term crept up on me again because I never look ahead and check when it is 🤣 Anybody else the most unorganised mother ever ? I like to think I’m just laid back but it’s probably more epic unorganisation on my part 🤦🏻♀️✨ If anybody has any fun crafty ideas to keep a 1 year old and 8 year old entertained send it my way 👍🏻✨ This beauty I’m wearing here is pinchbeck with a lush dark green agate stone in the base 🌿 There is beautiful engraving all around the fob with a lovely little deer sitting on top of the stone ✨ She’s listed on my website for under £100 and includes a chain so you can wear her as a necklace ✨ Link in bio to check her out ✨
If you’re new to #DreamGreenDIY
, then you might not know that this is more than just a one-woman show!! Nikki McIntosh, the founder of @WiseAppleVintage
, has been helping me with marketing for about two years now, and I can’t even fathom what work life was like before she joined me here at DGD. So, today I’m celebrating her with a roundup of all my favorite vintage goodies in her @Etsy
shop 🙌🏻❤️💕 Check out the list and learn a little more about Nikki on the blog now✨

60th birthday party last night. The band was Amazing, as was the catered food. We have such talent in San Marcos! The kitchen is a mess this morning tho😬 ... but when my lovely fruit delivery ladies turned up with my pineapple and avocados I asked if they’d be interested in a small job of cleaning my kitchen... thankfully they’re returning after they’ve finished their fruit run to wash my dishes for me✋... so now I can nurse my hangover in peace🤗
Yesterday was fully self-indulgent.
One of my favourite vintage items - a Bakelite hairdryer in its original packaging with full instruction paperwork. Isn't it amazing? Can imagine someone prepping their 1960s bouffant on a Saturday night with this retro beauty 💙
One thing I always promised myself when I started my business was that I would SOMEDAY get to the point when I would actually take the whole weekend off. No writing, no photography, no big projects...Eight years later, I’m finally able to treat myself to those hard-won weekends, and damn does it feel good 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻 All this to say that I’m about to park myself right there on that couch for the duration of the day! Books, movies, pet snuggles...It’s gonna be a GOOD one, folks 🛋❤️💕What are you getting up to this Saturday?
P R A I R I E >>> Little House on the Prairie is having a serious fashion moment. Yup, the Laura Ingalls Wilder look is big news right now. I spent approximately 10 minutes on the high street this week and spotted a prairie dress in every shop I went into. But, what do you do when you want to be on trend but don’t want to turn up to the party looking the same as everyone else? Go vintage of course! •
The prairie look also had a major moment in the 1970s thanks to @lauraashleyuk
so if you want some originality head to your local vintage shop for inspiration.
Find this cotton 1970s frock in store now and featured in the latest edition of @circusjournal.

Is it weird that one of my favorite rooms to look at is our upstairs bathroom? All that gold, the rectangular sink, pretty stone counter, vintage art that came from two totally different corners of the state... 🛁🧺🚿 One thing I AM considering changing, though? The wall color...Should I paint it dark teal or green? Hague Blue from @farrowandball
