Larch Living

Anyone who has followed my blog for sometime now will know how much I love supporting small businesses. They may also know that I moved into my first home this September in Manchester, and naturally I had my eyes open for cute living items to make it feel like home.

Larch Living, a company I have been following on Instagram for a while now, really caught my eye with their eye catching Skandi-style homeware items in monochrome hues, as well as offering a delightful selection of Jewellery and miscellaneous gift items perfect for Christmas.

Who doesn’t love scatter cushions, I ask?

The Cloud and Raindrops cushion was  the one I fell for- shop it here. its a beautiful soft linen fabric, and although you can’t see in the photo, the reverse is patterned in tiny black raindrops!

Here it is in pride on place on the bed!

Seeing as I mentioned the jewellery, I thought I would show off what is by far one of the most beautiful pieces of jewellery that I think I will ever own! A ceramic hummingbird. The quality of this piece is beyond what I was hoping for, with a delicate chain. The colours of the paint and the enamel glaze are really beautiful. Shop it here, it’s on sale at the moment too!

Visit their website as there’s not of items on sale right now so you can pick up a bargain in time for Christmas.

Follow me on Etsy

I’m forever browsing Etsy.  Its such an exciting online marketplace which allows me to create lists of the things I love and follow amazing shops selling handmade items from all over the world.

Mostly I favourite stunning or unusual jewellery,  though on my list you might find handmade leather shoes, satchels,  or things for the home.

Jewellery trend : Raw Stones

I’ve always been a fan of semi precious stone jewellery.  Not only is it affordable but available in any colour of the rainbow. I’ve recently taken to “raw”  stone jewellery though –  a step back from the polished stones,  instead taking full advantage of the natural beauty of stones such as amethyst,  quartz and many others I couldn’t possibly name.  Etsy for me has the finest collection of raw jewellery ranging from the fair in price to super extravagant raw stones that pack a punch in the pocket but wow are these pieces incredible.

Today I’m reporting from the affordable camp and showing off my raw quartz triangle necklace from Aubergine Fox on Etsy. (@AubergineFox on Twitter and instagram).

Here it is,  all for the super affordable price of £9.50. She also has some a making druzy pieces (sparkly raw stone  reminds me of glitter).
