Now that I am a work from home mum I have a long list of chores to complete. I have been saying for the past few months ‘when I finish I am going to sort….’ Well that time has arrived and we are starting with a car boot sale on Sunday. Chloe needs to raise 2K for sports tour and I hope having a big clear out and selling some old toys will be a great start and give her the boost to realise that raising this money will be achievable.
I also need to declutter as we have recieved some beautiful and unique decorative items recently that I want to showcase. Culture Vulture is a website that offers gift ideas from around the world. I saw so many unusual objects it was hard to know what to pick when I was offered the chance to review. The first item that jumped out at me was a Normandy recipe stand. This absolutely matches the kitchen blind I fitted last year. I like the colour, which brightens up my kitchen and complements my other pieces.
Next up I selected some more owl accessories. Chloe has a thing for both owls and cushions, in fact I am surprised there is room for her in her bed alongside the sumptuous soft furnishings she has! She adored this Folk Owl Cushion which costs £40 and this again comes from France.
Keeping with the owl theme I chose the Philosophical Owl, I am into quotes and inspiring messages at the moment, which was highlighted in my recent wall stickers post. The wise owl has pride of place on a widowsill. My final choice was some handmade fairtrade wrapping paper from Nepal. It is my best friends birthday this month and I am a firm believer in wrapping presents carefully and with beautiful stationary. Yes I am that person who will also reuse nice paper by opening the present carefully!
What I liked about Culture Vulture is that you will find beautiful hand crafted products that are not mass produced and seen in your friends homes. You will have unique items that encourage guests to look and want to explore your home.
