Starry Eyed

Hey lovely people, how are we all? I’m on my first day off this week and loving the feeling of knowing I have five days at home! 

I got to thinking yesterday about stars. I have over the last few years developed what can only be described as an obsession with stars. I remember my mum telling me once that you tend to love the things you need to be surrounded with (I think we were talking about favourite colours). So I must need stars in my life. 

My brother in law made a joke about his and my sister in laws imminent house purchase yesterday and chose to veto a house warming gift of a star from me because of how many I have in my home. I had a look around when I got back from work and noticed that yes I do seem to have plenty of stars in the house however they are all different, I am almost like a collector of stars!

You can find stars in many different places (yes I know the sky is one!) I tend to find them in trinket shops, vintage stores, shabby chic furniture stores and various other places. If I see one I can’t resist buying it so as a result I have many in different styles and materials. I literally surround myself with them. 

Do you have a theme that runs throughout your home? A symbol, something that makes you smile, makes you think of something or be reminded of something? I would love to hear about it.

All of my stars have come from local shops to me in Whitstable and Canterbury and each and everyone makes me smile. 

I hope you like them! 

‘Don’t lose hope, when it gets dark the stars will come out’

Much love xx
