Come Home to Me: the Lazenby’s!

Us foxes have the good fortune of knowing some incredibly stylish, lovely and clever people. Though most of us don’t  own our own place we like to make the best of what we’ve got! Here are a few ideas of things you could do to turn your humble abode into a cosy sanctuary that feels just like you!

 A few months ago now in our Friday Finds we featured this beautiful artist called Mark Lazenby he has some seriously amazing work that you can buy here. Do it! Every house needs a Lazenby.

Mark, his beauty of a wife Rachel and their amazing kids live in one of my favourite houses to visit because of how beautifully they have decorated it. It is fun, quirky and cool, just like them! 

Their kitchen, like many, is where some of the loveliest things happen, cooking, eating, talking, drinking.

The walls are filled with things that are a proper treat for your eyes!

Under “To & From THE ZOO”  is one of my favourites of Mark’s “A Brief History of Eternity”. You can buy it!

 “So Far” (below)  is by a British Pop Artist called Joe Tilson.

I missed getting a pic of their eldest Noah’s art work that’s up on the wall and is also pretty amazing!

 

Mark and Rachel’s mantle has loads of lovely anniversary pressies that they have made for each other, as well as cute pics of their little ones!

This one is coloured in sugar cubes for their ‘sugar’ anniversary, 6 years!

There are also all these beaut little touches, like this little defender of the lounge room hiding up near the ceiling!

I want a house just like this one day!

A house that is quirky.

A house that is homely.

A house full of beautiful things.

A house that celebrates the people and things I love.

That, right there, is a true story.

Happy Thursday … one day til the weekend and I get to hang out with that spiffy lady, Hanna, in Bristol!!

Whoopie!

Happy Canadian Thanksgiving… in pictures!!

Hanna, Sarah and I have a little tradition where we celebrate with friends Canadian Thanksgiving being that I, Celeste, am a little bit Canadian! Well… a lot a bit. Kind of. I guess it’s fair to say that an Australian Canadian living with permanent residency in the U.K. and family in Tanzania and New Zealand I am a bit confused, a linguistic surprise.

But the lovely thing about my confused heritage is that I get to take all the beaut bits about each and fit them in my life… one of the best is Canadian Thanksgiving! Hot Dang!

So this year, as always, I did the turkey and yams, Sarah and her Simon did roast veg and hot cider (!!) and Hanna and her  Jon brought the best pumpkin pie in all the land!

It is a most lovely opportunity to, despite all the annoying bits and bobs, take stock and be thankful for friends, family, fun, food, God, music, beauty and of course cigars and tequila! What are you thankful for?

This week will be full of Thanksgiving-y make do mends!

Here are some pictures of our scrumptious thanksgiving feast to whet your appetite.

Sarah and Mr F’s famous hot cider… it goes down a treat!!!

The Feast!

The Crown… I can’t fit a massive turkey in but this beautiful organic crown from Brimarks butcher at Battlers Green Farm does more than the trick!

Some thankful ambience!

Roast Veg and beetroot! So good!

Candied yams and asparagus.. The trimmings!

And here it is.. the best pumpkin pie in all of the land! So good that this was all I could get a picture of … too busy smashing it in my face!

Thank you for reading and happy Thanksgiving!

– Hanna, Sarah and Celeste
