This month I’m … February 2022

EXCITED ABOUT
The arrival of some fab new textiles!

I have a shipment on the way from Turkey – lovely bedspreads, scarves and towels. It’ll be the first time I stock towels – I hope you’ll love them as much as I do!

DECLUTTERING
The house

The colder months are a great time to get into those boxes that have been lurking in dark corners for a while. I don’t like throwing stuff into the trash & give most things in good condition away – decluttering just feels so good!

MAKING
Lots of soups

I love soups. And winter is the best time to cook & eat lots of them. 
ThisQuick carrot & sweet potato soup’ is a winner: quick to make, nutritious and full of flavour.

RECOMMENDING
“Soup for Syria : Recipes to Celebrate Our Shared Humanity”
by Barbara Abdeni Massaad


I bought this wonderful book at the height of the Syrian refugee crisis a few years ago. It is a collection of soup recipes by acclaimed chefs and food writers who came together to help food relief efforts to alleviate the suffering of Syrian refugees. All profits from the sales of the cookbook are donated to help fund food relief efforts through various nonprofit organizations.

Baby, it’s cold outside

With the excitement of Christmas in the past, the end of the winter nowhere in sight and the rise in daily pandemic numbers, it’s once again time to get comfortable in your own four walls.

Simple comfort food, a cup of tea (or a cheeky glass of red 😎), cosy blankets, cushions, candles, a good book or the latest TV series will get you through those cold winter evenings.

Using cushions is one of the quickest, easiest & cost effective ways to to add seasonal touches and texture to a space. Eye-catching cushions in different shapes and sizes also help to create luscious style spots around the home.

I keep a stash of cushion covers in our linen cupboard and tend to change them rather often to instantly change the look & feel of our sofa, bed and chairs. And the best thing: It takes all of 5 minutes!

Blankets – Throws – Covers
Name them however you want to: Blankets are a must-have for cold winters. Practical and versatile, they change the look & feel of a space in an instant.

I talk about candles quite often over on my social media accounts – I confess: I’m addicted to them! Not a meal, however simple, passes without candles on the table; candles burn when we watch the latest TV series or read books & magazines in the evening.

Nothing beats the warm light of a real candle, especially in winter.

The Sayonara Season is upon us

The dreaded Sayonara Season is upon us and lovely friends pack up their lives in Japan to move elsewhere / back to their home countries. I’ve called a number of countries my (temporary) home for more than 20 years, but I’m still not used to the frequent good-byes…

Are you saying sayonara to some of your friends and would like to get them something to remind them of your time together?

Here are my suggestions:
