A Weekend With…. Jane Goble of Posy

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

Hygge Book: The Art of Hygge by Jonny Jackson and Elias Larsen

It’s a funny thing, but I can almost separate my Hygge book reviews into those before I wrote a book about hygge myself and those I have thought about and not written since. It’s almost as though I think that reviewing someone else’s book on hygge would be like the mother in maternity who looks at you baby and sniffs, before saying “It’s alright, but … Continue reading Hygge Book: The Art of Hygge by Jonny Jackson and Elias Larsen

A gift from me to you on a sunny Wednesday… No strings attached.

I think I need more practise on the computer on how to upload PDF files to share. I think I do.

Yesterday was the chapter on what to … Continue reading A gift from me to you on a sunny Wednesday… No strings attached.

Starting next week on HTHTBW… the 50 Ways to Hygge the British Way Book Tour!!

It is a strange fact that as a Kindle author you don’t get a publisher and a publicist to take care of book sales for you. Nobody arranges the book tour, or blog tour, or any tour, nobody writes enthusiastic press releases, nobody takes charge of sending out review copies to the Big Names of whatever subject you’ve written about. It’s just not included. That … Continue reading Starting next week on HTHTBW… the 50 Ways to Hygge the British Way Book Tour!!

Hygge Book: Scandinavian Needlecraft by Clare Youngs

Hygge is intrinsically linked with sitting by the fire, but I’m bad at doing nothing. I like keeping my hands busy, and I like swapping out my crafts if I can. This book is ideal for me, because it’s not all one sort of embroidery, but a collection of quite a few. Scandinavian Needlecraft is written by Clare Youngs and published by Cico Books. ┬áThe … Continue reading Hygge Book: Scandinavian Needlecraft by Clare Youngs
