Posy Pig…Β 

So those of you who know the story, it really is a true one, despite Dylan saying I concocted the whole thing because I wanted a pig… it does sound like something I’d do, I do like pigs, but she REALLY did just wander into our garden one night when he was at work!!!!! Amazing!!!! 😭

She was sooooo small!!! πŸ‘†πŸ»* I don’t know why there’s such a big white gap there but I can’t get rid of it so it’s just there ok?!!! πŸ€”

Anyway, she’s settled in super & despite not knowing where she came from, she’s very very sweet & now living happily at Rose Cottage… We think she’s about a year old now which is good news for her as farmed pigs only live to 9 months before they’re slaughtered. I can’t even think further than writing that sentence but I’ll leave it there. She plays like our dogs, she makes her bed before she gets in it & she always poos in the same spot so she doesn’t make her pen messy…our dogs are pretty thick compared to her if I’m honest. 

SO… she’s growing growing growing & will soon need more space!!!! We originally let her loose in the field but she couldn’t be trusted to stay put so until we can buy more stock fencing she’s got to stay where she is! I’ve started a fund & figured I’d make her some of her very own ‘merch to promote her cause!!! 

I dreamt up these bags because every Friday, the grocer at our market gives us a bag of wonky carrots because she has a soft spot for pigs & wouldn’t believe my story of how Posy arrived, I invited her to Rose Cottage for a coffee & we’ve been friends ever since!!! Anyway, my usual shopper is always full of junk & the plastic ones are the devil!!! SO…everyone needs one for their veggies right???! You don’t have to be a Vegan to buy one, just a believer in a better life for pigs & therefore the world!!! They’re printed on Earth Positive bags which means they were produced using ONLY renewable wind & solar energy therefore being carbon neutral! Good eh??! 🌱🌎

So, they’re XL shoppers, Β£15 & free first class post so if it’s market day tomorrow it can be with you just in time!!! (I only have 10 so get in touch if you’d like to have one!) 

(Oh they’ll actually be in my shop in two ticks! Click HERE to shop!!!) 

Oh and here’s Posy’s cheerleader reprezenting today!!! πŸ˜†πŸŒ±πŸ‘†πŸ»πŸ’— 

And thank you from πŸ‘‡πŸ» who can’t use iPhones… πŸ™πŸ»

πŸ’• Christmas at Rose Cottage…πŸ’•

So while its tidy… No wait, it’s always tidy,

Summer at Rose Cottage… πŸ’•

You’re all well aware of what we spent our *sometimes sunny summer doing, it seems a while ago now, but flicking through my book now it’s here reminds me that it was extraordinarily ordinary in the most beautiful way… πŸ’•

I’ve collected a few pics together to hint at the moral of the story so far…

We started working on it pretty much every day from June, scrap booking, hunter/gathering & face timing my moods & feels to my bestie & publisher Sissy.

Flora & me were very professional & didn’t once give up!!!

PAH! Ok maybe only three or four times but I found it quite difficult to bring my head back to the real world with regards to deadlines, adult conversation & stickability to one project rather than a zillion little hobby ones! It’s been a LONG time since I was at Uni & even then I don’t think I worked so seriously!!!

After everything was curated I really enjoyed the pages falling into place, I ordered the months & colours in the book which is a small detail but for someone like me <Aesthetically anal I think is a good description!> is such a beautiful detail & gives an underlying moral to my wellbeing narrative. Serious stuff eh??! Who knew!!! πŸ™‹πŸ˜†πŸ™‹ *note to self…email Uni lecturer to confirm me actually completing a project!!!

On my part, I was almost done, Lauren was able to get on with the dull bits & turned it into an ACTUAL thing. I did however knock up a little pretend version for Flora’s critique that was home printed & holepunched!!! Fingers crossed it will be worth something one day…πŸ˜†πŸ˜†πŸ˜† I won’t be posting any pics of that!!!

Hallelujah!!! Finally, the first week of November 2016, after almost half a year of labouring our love, it is ready for you!!! I’m hot & cold excited & goosepimply happy, but you know that right?!!!

You can pre-order a Special edition in an embroidered gift bag on my website at the moment… Here. And pleeeease pop by my Instagram to leave some sparkly feedback! If it’s not sparkly, hold on to it!!!!!

On Monday the 28th I’m throwing a ball of a competition to celebrate!!! It will be like the 12 days of Christmas with a super prize every single day! The shops involved are AHMAGAAAAD amazing, including The Meringue GirlsBloom & Wild & Cosatto!

You must NOT FORGET!!! Until then dearest, sending Love xxx

The seven days of Crimplemas…

In case you’re wondering, we live in sweet Crimplesham, mix it up with a two year olds excitement for the big day & you get “Crimplmas!!!” Cute eh??! Well done Flora!!! 

Anyway, starting next week I’ll be celebrating the seven days of Crimplemas by sending a different gift everyday to a weeks worth of winners! They will all lead up to the official launch of my brand new book!!! ☝🏻️☝🏻☝🏻 YAY!!!

You’ll have to be on the ball as I’ll be posting each prize at 7am every morning & I want a regram!!! (This will be of a pic of my book though as I need as many people as possible to see it! **still 49 to sell before I make any money!!!!πŸ‘ŽπŸ») 

You can/should enter ever day as the prizes are all connected with my book & specifically chosen for their beeeeeeauty!!!!

Here’s a sneak peak…

THERE!!! Aren’t they super??!! They’re not in order so keep your eyes peeled from Monday morning! πŸ’•

Behind the scenes of @Be_More_Hygge…

So I’ve banged on about it for the last week, you should all now be well aware of my new true love, living the life of Hygge, a Hyggelig, a Hoogah??! 

No idea if I’ve just made that last word up, but in my mind it means, like a Yogi of Hygee, an absolute Pro, which is most definitely what I am!!! Anyway, read on for a super quick definition…

‘Hygge (β€œheu-gah”). The art of building sanctuary and community, of inviting closeness and paying attention to what makes us feel open hearted and alive. To create well-being, connection and warmth. A feeling of belonging to the moment and to each other. Celebrating the everyday.’ 

Blah blah blah, a super fuzzy hooray feeling inside I think…

So, I’m just about ready to show you what we’ve been working on, not at Rose Cottage this week, but up in Lincolnshire at my Mama & Papa’s studio Workshop. (Shed.)

Here’s some behind the scenes pics of me & the Boss at work! 

Conveniently, my Dad is world famous for his signwriting on super trendy cars, so he’s in charge of my latest project! 

So, here they are, a gesture in mug form

Take a moment, be warm, be quiet, be calm, be mindful, be thoughtful, be Autumn, be happy…be Hygge. 

Hand painted, limited edition, Autumn enamel mug available from Sunday 2nd Oct from Florafairweather.com

Rose Water from Rose Cottage…

I’m SUCH a sucker for anything ROSE!!! *except Turkish delight, but I’d deffo eat it if it was the ONLY treat available!!! 

I made bottles & bottles of this when I was very pregnant, enough to last my whole labour. Rose is so so nostalgic to me, moving to my most loved house (EVER) with my Mama & Pappy when we were little, it was a huge old Edwardian house built on the edge of the beach, the only thing between us & the sand was a little woodland of Christmas trees that after years & years had become a cats cradle of tumbling wild roses. The house was so fusty, Mama & me filled it with bowls of warm water & all of the blooms & it soon smelt DREAMY!!! We had the bestestesest summer I can ever remember in that house, camping out in one room because it was such a wreck, but still, just the BEST ever ever. 

Ever since, I’ve used wild rose In some of my happiest days…head to toe on our Wedding day & sipping happily throughout my lovely labour… 
Anyway, Jeeez, I didn’t mean for the life story today, I was just going for the recipe!!!!! 

If you’re still awake, here it is! πŸ’€

Collect your roses! 😏

You only need the petals for the water but I always snip the whole flower so another one grows in its place! 

Put them in a pan & fill with just enough water to cover them, particularly fragrant ones might need a little bit more to dilute the taste… *think Parma Violet, granny perfume taste! 

Cover the pan & warm the roses until they simmer & until they’re colourless.

Then drain & cool with ice or savour it warm!

Yes darling husband, it does look like pee, but I promise you, pee doesn’t taste this wonderful! 

*i don’t think??!

If you don’t have a wilderness of weeds & bushes like we do at Rose Cottage, you can use supermarket roses, they all smell & taste just as lovely! 

Enjoy! πŸ’•

An afternoon in Narborough…

We’re pretty spoilt for choice regarding Country Houses to visit in Norfolk, but Narborough Hall Gardens are so so fresh, it’s an absolute delight, every single trip. 

 *Even with two terrible toddlers in tow today!!!

It’s no secret I ADORE cake & blooms, cake & blooms…forever.

So here’s  why it’s SO highly high on my highest list!!! πŸ’•
