This Little Shelf Of Mine
Over the last few months, since December in fact, I've loved joining in with a great photo challenge on Instagram called Styling the Seasons. Hosted by two lovely ladies Katy (@aptapothecary) and Charlotte (@lottsandlots), the challenge is simple- style a surface of your home to represent what that particular month means to you, using the hash tag #stylingtheseasons. I'm constantly inspired when I scroll through the gallery and have insights into the wonderful creativity of those joining in, and their beautiful homes of course!
This month is extra exciting as there's a chance to win a place at a Spring floral workshop in London later this month. If only I didn't live so far away otherwise I'd definitely be joining in the competition.
I have a little shelf in my hallway which seems to be the surface that I'm drawn to each month. Its one of the first things you see as you walk through our front door and I can't resist tinkering with it and styling it as the months change.
When the door is open, it fills the hall with light so it also makes it a great spot for taking product photos for the shop.
I thought I'd share a few photos that I've taken for Styling the Seasons, mostly involving flowers! When I scroll back through my photos I love seeing the impact that the seasons have on my home and particularly this little shelf.

Rarely does the shelf stay the same for the whole month as I play about with it and replace flowers when they fade.
I hope you've enjoyed seeing my shelf and maybe even have a go at joining in too.
Have a lovely day.
