A girl from the Lakes

 '"Ice Cream" whispers Clara, and her voice cracks' ~ Helen Dunmore 

Welcome to my blog! I'm Elizabeth, but do call me Liz -
I'm born and bred in the Lake District, in the north west of the UK, a girl with synesthesia but affected by ME and awful anxieties. I learn through blogging, Buddhism, being creative and forest living, and spend my free time communing with nature, creating, collecting and being old fashioned. I'm inspired by nature, ghosts, dusty places, Grimm's fairytales, the Pre Raphaelites and romanticism. I love creating beautiful spaces, 19th century flair, and basically anything cute or romantic. I harbor a childlike fascination as to how people did things a hundred years ago  View my FAQ here

Little House in The Lakes
At age 19 it was a miracle to find out I was pregnant, and come May 2015, we welcomed little baby Oscar in to the world, two weeks early! The experience was so surreal and there is nothing more heartwarming than getting to know and playing with this little sugarplum - and seeing all his little smiles and giggles! In February 2015, we moved in to our tiny flat with its own teeny rose garden.

 '"Ice Cream" whispers Clara' -
Is a vintage lifestyle blog, rebooted in July 2015 after the birth of our first child. It is a place for everything romantic, chic and beautiful, with beauty reviews, pretty dresses, old fashioned gardens and adventures with our baby. The funny name is part of a quote from Helen Dunmore's short story 'Ice Cream'. Fancy collaborating, enquiring about something, button swap or saying hi?
