Flowers Chic and Cheap

My house comes alive as long as there are colorful bouquets and plants around. I don’t like to spend a lot of money, so I tend to purchase plants vs bouquets (they last waaay longer!)

Carlos Motas Flowers Chic and Cheap caught my eye this morning. When I don’t have a pretty bouquet on my coffee table, I’ll stack this book on top!

Bailey’s Home and Garden

a really beautiful store that i have never been to (but would love to visit)…
located in Bridstow, Herefordshire.

the concept for the store is equally cool,

The things we sell are a surprising mix of vintage and new from a variety of sources – but they all share the qualities integral to our repair, reuse, rethink philosophy.

One of our favourite things is to reuse unloved bits and pieces (small or large) that we find on our travels, and give them a new lease of life – it’s our version of recycling… so abandoned bobbins from old textile mills turn up on our shelves as egg timers, lamp bases or string holders; scraps of floor board become mirror frames, tables or even kitchen units.

When we’re not rescuing and recycling, we design simple useful products with a subtle sense of humour and nice labels. We also source some things from small family run companies who have been making the same things for generations – such as beautiful Burleigh pottery – still made in Stoke-on-Trent.

Our biggest project so far has been the move to Whitecross Farm – it’s taken about 2 years to sympathetically restore and repair the run down buildings and turn them into our store, which is definitely worth a visit.”

the owners have also written 2 books, Simple Home: Calm Spaces for Comfortable Living and Recycled Home i can’t wait to check them out!

i am posting this for my husband. i am thinking that with his out of control book collection, we could probably build the book fort. it would definitely be cooler than having all the books taking over our bedroom and linen closet.
