Re:So Pop Up Shop | Brighton*

I’ve just got home, I’m tired and hungry but I’m also really excited! Why?

Starting Our Garden Project

We have a large untamed garden extending all the way round our house.  There’s rubble, weeds, brambles and often frogs, slowworms, foxes and badgers as well. The project, quite simply, is too large for J and I to undertake alone, especially considering J has CFS, so can’t really do much in one go. So we thought we’d hire a landscaper.

An Appreciation For Art

I always feel that art can really change a house into a home and give it a personal touch. That being said, I’ve never really been in a position to buy art before (I don’t think ripping out posters from magazines really counts to be honest!).
