Will You Be My…


Happy Valentines day folks! This is a Bird takeover whilst Bugs continues with her house move. I do not envy her, after moving 5 times in three years I will happily stay put for as long as possible! (Although a bigger house would be nice to give more space to my ever growing home jungle!)

As it is Valentines I thought it would be nice to show you what makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside, and if you are single do not turn away! Valentines isn’t just about boyfriends/girlfriends/husbands/wives/lovers…. in Denmark and Estonia its also known as ‘friends day’, so remember those people you turn to in times of crisis are all ‘special someones’ and  today is the day to show them just how much you appreciate them!




First off has to be my husband. When we met at 18 I never imagined we would end up married, but after being friends for 7 years he plucked up the courage to ask me out at a Voodoo Glow Skull gig (Ahhhh).





Origami Cranes, we spent so many evenings making hundreds of these to hang from the ceiling of our conservatory for our wedding reception and then sent them out with thank you cards afterwards. So many of our friends still have these up in their homes which makes my heart melt each time I see them. Remember the Corinne Bailey Rae video for ‘Like A Star’? Thats what originally gave me the idea 🙂



This, from my husband today, we don’t really celebrate Valentines or anniversaries by doing anything extravagant because love is about each and every day, not just ‘special’ days, however he always does a little something to make me feel special. (Also how adorable is that string of hearts?!)





That Love Potion tea by the way is amazing! Another divine concoction by Bluebird Tea Company – ceylon tea with strawberry, chocolate and rose petals, i’m on my second pot already!

This little Hoya Kerii otherwise known as a sweetheart plant or valentine hoya. How cute is that?! I thought this was super adorable when I found it at From Victoria and since in the lead up to Valentines day the local supermarkets have been flooded with these little guys. They are really easy to take care of and if you show them a little tlc they will eventually turn into a bush with an abundance of heart shaped leaves.




Wildflower Illustration Co. recently designed this card featuring one of my favourite Pride & Prejudice quotes. I just had to frame and hang it!





I hope you are all having a lovely day whether you are enjoying it with that special person, your friends or by yourself!

    I do the same thing – I like simple and little things on Valentine’s Day. I am more of a DIY Valentine’s Day girl 🙂

    By the way, your paper cranes from your wedding are beyond beautiful. That was such a wonderful and a clever idea to send them back with the thank yous! You’re so creative!!
