A Kensington Home in Shades of Blue and Grey



I love blue but have never been brave enough to use it on my walls or kitchen cabinetry, I guess in the back of my mind I am thinking about re-sale and neutrals are so safe. However in this large, modernised, Kensington home, smoky blue works perfectly with the traditional/contemporary interior and shades of grey in other areas of the home.

DIY Snow Globes - 7 Simple Ideas


As a child I have fond memories of pretty snow globes my mother used to buy me at Christmas, today's snow globes seem to be made from cheap plastic and don't have quite the same charm, however, I spotted some lovely DIY snow globes around the blogasphere created with mason jars and ornaments. These ideas are simple to create and so much prettier than store bought globes. I decided to share some of the prettiest ones I discovered and also have a go myself.
