i've finally found it!

Some of you may already know just how much I love the scent of lichen...

... it reminds me of places like this. I've often wished I could bottle it.

Well somebody has already done it for me! I'm currently sitting here typing getting wafts of lichen every now and again. I bought a set of
mini perfume oil samples from etsy shop For Strange Women after being seduced by the natural ingredients and beautiful packaging, and yesterday I tried Moss & Ivy for the first time. After the first burst of powerful fragrance had faded I was left with my favourite scent! Lichen!!!! Total bliss!!! I just can't believe that after all this time I've come across it. Happiness in a bottle!

set in stone

Here are a couple of custom orders I have done for people as keepsakes for their dearest ones. I think it's really sweet to add initials on the back. I like the significance of setting your love in stone. It reminds me of names carved into the bark of tree trunks.

most romantic place

Voted the most romantic place in Wales it certainly lives up to its accolades.

Llanddwyn Island off Newborough Warren is the sort of place where you can feel a million miles away from home.

I had one of those moments, when you feel completely present and at one with the world, all my cares just faded away.

As we watched the sunset and the birds flying home to roost I found a couple of lovely unusual pebbles and some sea glass. One of the best kind of days. Smiles all round.

I'd really love to hear about your most favourite romantic place, please feel free to leave a comment.
