the beat my heart skipped, indeed

It's only 1pm here in London and I think my day has just been made. Would you look at these images! This is the kind of thing that gets me up in the morning. I can't tell you how much blogging, blogs and bloggers has contributed to my life. Being self employed and running a small interior design business is not nearly as glamorous as it may seem, and if you're not very careful it's easy to become demoralised when occasionally faced by that mean ol' dog: isolation. And so, having access to some fantastically creative people via blogs and Twitter has at times been the only link between here and full time employment.

I am amazed by the sheer generosity of spirit that is out there, particularly in the creative fields and it's a delight to every now and again, find 'my people'.

Latest finds - do have a look, these blogs are outstanding:

The Diversion Project - vintage; glamour; impossibly Cool; warm hearted (and Australian!)
little blue deer - gorgeous colours; slightly bohemian; eclectic-eccentric (US)
wicker and stitch - sophisticated; stylish; craft-cosy (another Sydney, Australian)
the beat that my heart skipped - daily design; designer makers; the place I go to when I need a quiet tea break - (and she's British, too!)


  1. far out brussel sprout. thanks for the fab shout out heather, i'm kind of blushing down here in the antipodes! v. thrilled that you enjoy a diversion now and then : )

  4. Hi Heather, I am coming by way of Jules. Great post by the way!!
    I see you like bicycles, you will probably appreciate my post on Pashley's. I am trying to decide which one. Would love to know what you think! Look forward to following your blog :)


  5. Jeanne - hello! Yes, I absolutely adore cycling - love Pashleys (if I lived on the ground floor, I'd own one, for sure), I'm keen to see what you're talking about, so I'm heading straight on over...

    p.s. loving the 'Jules' fan club meeting over here < oh, and she's witty too!
