I don’t know what it is about blogging, but I find it incredibly difficult to show up consistently.

Building a collection

Hello friends, it is Sunday evening here in Parsons Green and if you read my post last week you will notice that I have failed in my efforts to try and write this post earlier in the week.

Food for the soul

A short and sweet one from me today. It is Sunday evening, I have just got Jake and Posy into bed. Posy requested the gruffalo for her bedtime story (any parent will know that this isn’t the shortest of bedtime reads) followed by four rounds of singing baa baa black sheep.


It is fair to say that over the last few months I have been feeling muddled and very scattered in my approach to growing my small business. I was finding the juggle of a demanding full time job and busy family life increasingly difficult and was struggling to find fulfilment when working on Posy + Petal.

Little ones

Jake has alway been really creative, which probably isn’t a huge surprise with two arty parents. I am literally a container of tiny fizzy bubbles of ideas and would spend all of my days drawing, cutting, sticking and making, if only I could.


Oh dear, it has been a very, very long time since my last foray into blog land. In fact if I look at the dates of my last post, it is around the time that I returned to work after my maternity leave.


Although my baby business is called Posy + Petal, an idea conceived shortly after my daughter Posy popped into the world, there is another little one who very much inspires me and is at the heart of our family. 

Floral pick me up

Last Saturday my husband and I enjoyed the most delicious and decadent care free day at Chelsea flower show.

The Flower Appreciation Society

I have always loved to learn particularly when the subject matter leans towards the creative. At school you would always find me in the warm and cosy art block, filling my sketchbook with tiny drawings, whilst eating my sandwiches.

One day

I have always loved city life and London life in particular. So buzzy, busy and ever changing, but as my little boy began to grow and I became pregnant with my second child I started to yearn for a move out of the city, somewhere greener, prettier, quieter and slower.

Everyday flowers

'I must have flowers, always and always' one of my favourite quotes from one of my favourite artist's Claude Monet and I couldn't agree with him more.

Start Somewhere

I first started thinking about this journey when Posy was just a tiny tot and feeding frequently both day and night.
