Hello everyone,

I love styling the seasons! And was so excited when Katy from Apartment Apothecary, and Charlotte from Lotts and Lots delivered the news of working with  Laura Ashley loveliness.

I love flicking through the Laura Ashley catalogue, drinking a nice cup of tea. 
It was so hard to pick something and I took ages to decide!

To me, February means anticipation of spring.
Spring = birds and flowers

So I finally decided on the New England Nesting Box, some paints and  the gorgeous Summer Palace wallpaper.

I decided to style a shelf in my conservatory as I love spending time out there.
I made these little origami birds from the summer palace wallpaper. They are so simple to do, and I will post a tutorial on how to make them soon.

I decided to give the New England Nesting box a little beach-hut makeover by painting it in alternate stripes of Sapphire and Pale Topaz.

I just love my seasonal blooms, and like to display them in jam jars.
I painted the bases in complimenting shades.
From left to right: Pale Delphinium, Pale Duck Egg, Pale Topaz and Sapphire.

The old window frames came off a vintage dresser, I love them, and putting the Summer Palace wallpaper behind them turns them into a real spring scene.

I love to mix vintage pieces into my styling.
