Publicity, fakes and a Christmas freebie

This week the blog has featured in a list of ‘blogs to read’ in Elle Decoration, Mexico. I was pretty surprised given that…well…it’s Elle Decoration Mexico….but pleased to be asked.


ELLEDECO-11-BLOGSNow to flowers.

I got these. Nice huh?


Here’s a closer look.


What you hopefully haven’t noticed straight away is that they are……….fake.

I’ve never been a fan or seen much point in fake flowers until I visited my friends house and couldn’t believe how she always had such a nice display of hydrangea, a bit like these. She revealed that they weren’t real and told me she’d bought them from a specialist shop in NYC and so when she was back there again recently she kindly popped along and bought me a set.

It hasn’t stopped me buying fresh flowers as well, but these are so cool. You could even have them on something normally too warm, like above a radiator in the winter.

Then lastly I’ve been contacted by the nice people at Country Living Magazine about plans for their Christmas Fair.


It’s weird to be writing this as I sit with the sun streaming through the kitchen window but they’ve given me two free tickets which I will give to the first person who drops me a email claiming them. You can find out all the details here and they also have an early bird two for one offer if you book before 7th September. Either enter the code: CLEB15X into the discount code box when buying online or call: 0844 848 0150 and quote: CLEB15X. I’ve been before and I enjoyed it, so do go along if you fancy it and you are in the UK. 

UPDATE: thanks to everyone who contacted me about the tickets, these have now gone.

  1. Hi

    I love your blog and your beautiful house and would also love to go to the Christmas country living magazine fair. I am sure I am not the first one but I had to give it a try.

  2. Hey Tor,

    Hope all’s good with you 😊

    Blog is fabulous as always. Living in a rented house now, it’s always good to get ideas of how to personlise without being about to actually personlise the place, ha ha!

    Just a quick question about the flower shop. Do you mean ‘socialist’ or was it an auto correct from ‘specialist’? 😉

    Give my love to London and maybe we’ll cross paths at some Ross drinks or something in a year or two?

  3. Oh, the Christmas fair looks like it will be gorgeous! And congrats on the magazine feature, its lovely to get recognition of your work 🙂

  4. Country markets seem amazing. They are so authentic and lovely.
    Your army green cabinet is fantastic and placing those frames with interesting art suits the entire interior. Great choices.
