A Mori style hideout



With a little peek at my new Gunne Sax dress! I managed to get it second hand and super cheap after trawling long and hard through the internets and *managing to find a UK size 10* - good
thing as us elven folk gotta save for Christmas! I hope it will still fit once the mince pies start to come in. I recently redecorated my little lilac corner so I thought I would just give a quick tour of my little tiny Mori inspired space. There's a lot of pink here but I have tried to incorporate natural elements too, along with second hand items, and special things from over the years.


I'm so in to reading gardening books lately, so I keep a few on my little table. This one in particular was leant to me by my Gramama! I'm eager to brush up on my flower and tree knowledge so whenever I do a garden post I can actually name the kinds of flowers to you! I am often uncertain as to the names so I don't bother including them, which is sad. I would also love to teach them to Oscar as he develops and his interest in the world keeps growing.

A little list of things I have collected on my table: Barry M nail polishes, Yankee Kilimanjaro candle, Pandora bag, pot of kawaii pencils, Tsum pencil case, my lamp (not shown), winter reads. In my bottom draw is a box of special old things and photographs. I hang up any bags or scarves with my mystery dress on the door. I'm so excited to show you! Please stick around, it will hopefully be coming on a Sunday near you. I love making over my little corner and changing it up, when you are always surrounded by boys things it's a kind of pink retreat!

Do you have a little hideaway in your house? I'd love to try making my own dresses one day!

  6. I've been eyeing up that Marie Tsum pencil case for so long, I'm slightly obsessed with her so it would fit in well with my collection aha. I used to love it when my Grandad would teach me about flowers/birds/all things outdoors, so I'm sure that Oscar will love that book one day! x

    1. Awww I'd love to see your collection, she's always been my favourite character too xD I think she was one of my first Tsums, the pencil case came half price when I got her so I went for it! Still trying to build up stamps on my little card xD My grandma always did that too, she inspires me in many ways! Thank you for your lovely comment Leigh-Anne! :D xx

  15. I'm not that into gardening but I can't deny, that books looks so nice! And the whole ambiance of that photo is really inviting, calm and what someone would describe as a happy place.
