Looking for inspiration for a Secret Santa this year? For this weeks I Love Mondays post, I thought I would do just that.
I have put together some things that I would love to receive. Prices range from £5 – £15, though I couldn’t resist the vintage plate art kit, for £20. Cool huh? Continue Reading
Todays ‘I Love Mondays Post, is dedicated to Hush Hush. I have previously written about Hush Hush HERE, but I thought it was about time I featured them again.
I love a bargain, I’ll readily admit if its reduced in price, the attraction level of a product goes up for me. Such is my addiction of a bargain, I have been known to stalk Hushhush – the daily flash sales site. Beautiful and stylish items, at really affordable prices. What I thought I would look at today, is small and summery items from Hush Hush, that are very reasonably priced. Adding a little taste of summer to your home!
1 & 3 – £8.50 and £8.00
These Fairground Ride and Popcorn Stand prints are a fab way of introducing pastel colours and a vintage vibe. What a great price they are too. The artist is Zee Longenecker, there are three pastel coloured prints to choose from, all with a seaside, fairground theme so great for summer. They would look great grouped together for more impact.
2 – £5
This ruler Hanger, its been reduced from £14 to £5 I love the natural and vintage trend, and this coat hook fits it perfectly. This Expanding Ruler Style Hooks is a great way to keep your home tidy, I can imagine it would look great in a bedroom for necklaces and bags, or in a hallway its ideal for everything from jackets to dog leads.
Perfect for these long summer evening we are having. I would add a citronella candle to these (those candles are life savers) and burn outside, as soon as the sun goes down. They are really delicate and pretty, when you aren’t using them for outside, they would look just as good indoors. I love that they will blend into any colour interior (and exterior) and that they come as a pair. I’ve often found lanterns that I love, and only been able to find one available.
Crafted from white metal, this Set of 2 Large sized Lanterns will make a vintage pretty statement wherever you place them.
I have seen these often, and coveted them, these are a great price though. Again they could be used outside very safely as they aren’t glass. They would look great in my outside space, I created on a budget. Made by Nkuku’s, these cups are hand-painted enamel. The designs are very distinctive with their pop of colours and flower details. I am going to buy a set of these, as I can imagine both using them as cups, but also as decoration around the house. Even as small vases with a single flower from the garden. This is the Pink Franjipani cup, but they come in various colours. They are handwash only, but for something this pretty, I will make an exception.
Well as Monday is here, and many of us are either dragging ourselves out of bed with a sunshine hangover, or still feeling elated over the amazing win by Murray at Wimbledon. I thought for this weeks I Love Mondays post, as you may all be feeling a little delicate still. I will give you something not only to consider purchasing, but something you may want to drink in and reflect on in your home from Saatchi Online.
There are a broad selection of oil paintings for sale at the Saatchi Online site, and I have chosen three of my favourites for you to consider. All of the painting are available to purchase as an original or as a print, however some originals have already been sold.
First up is this abstract oil painting, I just love the colours and the texture from the paint that has been used, and think this actually reminds me of summer, its beautiful!

This oil on canvas, is a gorgeous portrait, the colours that have been used by Thomas Saliot on the profile of this girl are beautifully handled I think. She reminds me of my eldest daughter, who often wears her hair just in this style. I love how graceful the lines are, but also that her eyes are down turned, almost shyly. I would love this in my home!

This painting entitled ‘Shine’ is very atmospheric, it is two-tone in colour, which works really well I think. It has a mysterious feel to it, and it would make a fantastic impact in a room, maybe a dining room or even a bedroom.
So what do you think about my choices? Do you agree, or do you prefer something else from the Saatchi Online Gallery.
