Mondays are for Mugs: Modcloth

This prickly pear should be ideally be filled up with super healthy cactus tea. 

Alternatively, if you're suffering with the cold no.5 of the season like me...Lemsip, as those spiky spines have got to be good for the sorest of throats...mmm *reaches for Lemsip*

Styling the Seasons: January

January is all about new starts and (in this particular home lover’s world) it has been the nicest of new starts, as I’ve been settling into my lovely new home. 
So my Styling the Seasons post this month firstly represents newness and gathering together lovely new things for our home - including this table and bench set (from here) and long wished for cheese plant (I’d convinced myself I didn’t have room for one in the last place…I know).
But it’s also being reunited with lots of things that we’d packed away and put on hold while waiting for moving to our own home. I think this beautiful print (in the top pic) represents this nicely as it was taken by the boy and was the second present he ever gave me  (this was the first) way back in the days of yore. 

Seeing this lovely homely print sitting prettily next to our new bits-and-bobs that we’ve both carefully chosen together, in our new home, makes me very happy indeed.

I so enjoy doing these #stylingtheseasons posts, thanks to Katy from Apartment Apothecary and Charlotte from Lotts & Lots, two clever, creative ladies who have thought up this fun challenge.

Oh and a proper New Gaff post to follow sometime soon (promise) but in the meantime here’s a little sneak peek…

Mondays are for Mugs: Martha Mitchell Design

"I'm a milk and no sugar thanks." Something I'd no longer need to say (at least 3-4 times a day. Tea obvs) with this excellent hot drink personalisation mug from Martha Mitchell Design
Other things I'd still be saying: 
"Any of those biscuits will do nicely"
"Can I take two?"
"How did I let this get cold?! Still going to drink it."
"Shall I do another round?"
