That has to be one of the coolest names ever! And even more appropriate if you consider that Natasha is a sculptor and ceramicist, so her work literally does go into the fire to be transformed into something beautiful! In the Hygge Nook, we have a shed load of creative people. Some create for joy, others do it as their jobs. One thing’s for sure, … Continue reading A Weekend With…. Natasha Phoenix
Last year I ran a series of posts called A Weekend With… I was lucky enough to ask some of the most hyggely bloggers out there about how they found hygge helped them live their lives. You can read the posts by clicking the tag A Weekend With. Part of the reason I love hygge is that it is so home-based, and so egalitarian. Queens … Continue reading A Weekend with….. a difference.
It’s Friday! Yay! I have made it through another week and this time I actually made time to write for the blog! So much of my time and energy at the moment is being taken up with writing about happiness for the new book (it will be ready soon) that after I’ve done the paid work there isn’t a lot of energy left for blog … Continue reading A Word for the Weekend: Huffle-buffs
It’s been a while since I did A Word for the Weekend. I don’t know, real life sort of got in the way, or I wasn’t as dutiful as I should have been. But today on Twitter I saw a word I knew you would need, because if you are anything like me, this is what you do. I am, sadly, Mother-in-Law free now, … Continue reading A Word for the Weekend: Scurryfunge
Social Media sometimes gets a very bad press. It’s full of trolls, people lose their politeness and inhibitions and feel able to say anything they like. Don’t post about yourself, you never know who’s reading your posts, it increases isolation because you’re online not meeting up in person etc. etc. etc. Okay, I’d be a fool not to agree that parts of the Interweb got … Continue reading The Hygge Nook: Social Media at its Best
Just a quick weekend post to share my fun this afternoon…. you should never leave me alone with a computer and an idea! I’m making notes on Autumn hygge for a proper post next week, but this is too cute not to share straight away! Have a good weekend! Continue reading Autumn Hygge…
When I started up my A Weekend With… series I had a few blog heroes that I wanted desperately to feature. I wanted Lucy of Attic 24, knew I had to have Gillian of Tales From a Happy House and dreamed of having Jane from the Posy blog. Jane no longer writes her blog, due to reasons she’ll explain below, but it’s still there in … Continue reading A Weekend With…. Jane Goble of Posy
This week’s post comes from Gillian, of Tales From A Happy House. Gillian’s blog hit my feed several years ago, when her stories of family life in Leeds struck a chord. Her house was beautifully scandi in style, and she liked so many of the things I liked…. I think it’s always wonderful when you realise that there are so many people out there … Continue reading A Weekend With….. Gillian of Tales From A Happy House
