Styling the Seasons: January

... and so it is at 11pm on the 31st of January I'm finally getting around to posting my Styling the Season images for this month...

One of my favourite things about January is having a new diary.
I love the crisp clean pages, the corners not yet dog-earred, the thick notes section at the back still with plenty of room for plans and stories.
As much as I love the new diary -  I also hate letting go of the previous years - so January becomes this transition month where I often end up having both diaries close at hand - sometimes transferring various notes from my old diary to my new one, a process which for some reason I really enjoy.

My 2015 diary is the 10th one I've had the same - so for my #stylingtheseasons I decided to get all of my old diaries out together...

Our hyacinth has bloomed and flopped and I can't resist cutting a few hellebores from the garden despite their tendency to droop too. None of these winter flowers can really cope with central heating (even when we are pretty mean with ours) but it's worth having them anyway. Spring is coming... it's coming. 

The droopy flowers.

I love the look of these bulbs in our Astier de Villatte mugs - although they are just as perfect for hot chocolate too.

I have to confess to taking these photos in a bit of a hurry this morning - I got a little distracted flicking through the pages of the last ten years of my life....

  1. Ha ha! I love the way you squeeze them in right at the end of the month and I'm so glad that you did as this is so joyful and beautiful. What a perfect way to show off your newly painted fireplace. Love the colours x
