My name is Charlotte, you are most likely to find me drinking a cup of tea with a vintage plate piled up with biscuits, either sitting on the floor playing puzzles with Olive or at my quiet desk illustrating children's stories.

Wife to a brilliant friend from my childhood, Sebastian and Mama to Olive. We live in a rented town house where we scrapbook our dreams, sip tea/coffee/milk and cook up simple pasta dishes together.  We watch a film on Sunday afternoons and have cake on Mondays.

We mostly adventure to the seaside.

I am pretty fond of tea, a paper bag of white mice, Laduree macarons and Parma Violets. Writing, reading and collecting broken vintage china. Flower pressing, sewing and adventuring. Winter, Autumn, and Spring. 
I love being cosied up inside with twinkly lights when it's pouring with rain outside, early nights with a good book and a cup of tea, tiny adventures with my tiny famille.

When I get some time I also like to create things, wrap them up in pastel paper bags & twine and sell them online. You can find my little pieces here on the virtual shelves of my Etsy shop.


  1. Aww we're pretty similar please check out my blog...

  2. Hi there!

    I just stumbled across this gorgeous blog of yours whilst I was researching tea (it appears a love of tea is something we both have in common!). I just wanted to say "hi!" and say how lovely your blog is, the photography is beautiful. I keep meaning to start a blog, but I never got round to it, but now have just started one for my new business, so please pop by and take a look (not much there yet). I'm at http://theteadropblog.blogspot.co.uk/

    Thankies! And it is a pleasure to meet you!

    Kindest Regards,

  7. HI! Your blog is great. I too am a fellow tea enthusiast. My favorite tea is from Hill Country Tea (hillcountrytea-dot-com) and they have amazing Sri Lankan tea's all from one plantation. Their tea's are unblended so they are fresher and also taste amazing! try it.
