I love these Pashley Poppy bikes! If you enlarge the photos you can see them properly-I have a black Pashley Princess which I love, but if I didn't I would be very tempted by one of these! They are expensive, like all Pashley bikes, but are built to last a lifetime. The cheapest I've found you can get this one for online is £389 with free delivery from discount cycles
and they come in blush pink or pastel blue. Pashley bicycles are all handmade in England, and are renowned for their classic styling. One thing you do need is a sturdy lock though-my friend had hers stolen and the police said Pashley bikes are targets for thieves because they are expensive bikes. I use two locks, one of them a Kryptonite D-lock and so far I've been ok!

It's funny how things grow on you-at first I wasn't sure about painting our sitting room grey, but now I'm really pleased with it!
I covered the lampshade with a remnant of my favourite Kate Forman
fabric 'Roses' which is an antiquey-style pattern (my other favourite of hers is 'Sophia' in grey and pink). The lampbase was also wood but we painted and distressed it in a darker grey eggshell colour to make it look a bit more French.

Today I have been sorting out my everyday wardrobe. The OH made me this built-in wardrobe using some pine doors and a drawer he found in a skip! He lined it in some old Laura Ashley 'Kate' wallpaper I bought for a few pounds on Ebay, which was one of my favourite papers of theirs in the late 80's. Looking at the photo of the inside of my wardrobe, I canCan you also spot a glimpse of my new Cabbages and Roses 'Hatley' wallpaper to the side of the built-in wardrobe?
