4. This is the cutest 2CV car I have ever seen.
5. Sharing a relaxed dinner with my fiancé, Yvonne, Tina and Karine is a lovely way to start the weekend.
6. Have you tried Banana and Coconut cake before? We made this on Sunday and it tasted so good!
7. I’m lusting over AURA’s new neon coral chevron quilt cover.
8. It was fascinating to learn that this limited edition Trawl print was made by digitally layering an original watercolor painting of tranquil water over a photograph of a boat.
9. How amazing is the packaging on these pencils?
10. The Marne dipped yellow jug from Habitat needs to come home to my colourful kitchen!

  11. So many fab images but my favourite has to be the 2CV – my Mum had a kermit the green one when I was little and she used to roll back the canvas roof and my sisters and I would stand in the back seat and peer out over the top. That was until we had to get out so the car could make it up a hill.

  12. Looks like you’ve been quite busy this weekend! I love that art print, I think i will havve a look for my watercolours and try it 😉
    Wish you a happy new week!
