Weekend Links

Have you had a good week?  We got snow (a tiny bit) this week for the first time this winter – it was fun while it lasted!  I’ve also been busy in the kitchen – some fruits of my labour are up on the blog next week.   In the mean time here are some links to things I’ve found interesting lately:

A Stunning Eco-Friendly House Tour


I love a good look around other people’s houses, especially when they’re as stunning as Artemis Russell’s.  Artemis is a blogger at Junkaholique (one of my all time favourites)  and jewellery maker from the Isle of Wight.  Artemis and her husband Nao have furnished their beautiful home mostly with secondhand car-boot, flea-market and charity shop finds.  This has created a stunning, yet simple look, that’s warm, inviting and easy on the environment.  I couldn’t resist giving you this eco-friendly house tour:

I love all of her vintage and antique finds that together make this home so unique.  It clearly looks like a labour of love!

Artemis is also one crafty mama, and has made a lot of items for her home, including this beautiful mobile for her daughter Pehr, and can we just marvel for a minute at her home-made Wendy house:

I’m completely smitten with Artemis’s house as a whole and I could post a million more photos of her gorgeous house!  Instead go have a look at Junkaholique and be prepared to lose a good few hours dreamily browsing her archives!
