'Summer of sport' Etsy List curated by H is for Home

We’ve had an exceptional summer of sport so far this year. The England team last week came 3rd in the Women’s World Cup – the best either the men or the women have done since 1966! We stayed up ’til way past midnight to watch the matches, but the quality and excitement made it worthwhile.

We’re a week into Wimbledon Fortnight and local girl Heather Watson gave Serena Williams a scare… and, for a while, the British public a glimmer of hope.

We’re currently engrossed in the Tour de France – an annual favourite of ours – last year’s Yorkshire Grand Départ a memory we savour.

Next week sees the start of The Open Golf at historic St Andrews in Scotland. I’ll be a golf widow for a week, but I might join Justin in watching the final few holes.

It’s National Camera Day today!

We’d certainly be lost without ours. The camera is an essential piece of kit for our lifestyle & business – whether it’s the blogging or selling side of things. We like one that’s compact in size, but has a good quality lens – with ‘point & shoot’ and ‘messing about’ options!

We’ve actually got two of what we’d call ‘proper’ cameras – so there’s always one available for home shoots, auction views, markets or days out… plus 2 camera phones of course. No excuse not to get the shot then!

To mark the day we’ve chosen a selection of favourite ‘camera collectables’ we found on Etsy.

Etsy List: True Blue

'True Blue' Etsy list

We went out for a meal at the weekend with a couple of friends. When they turned up, one of them said to me, “I’ve never seen you wearing blue before”. I thought about it a second and realised that even though we’ve known each other for about 15 years, it was probably true! Other than jeans, I don’t own that many blue items of clothing.

The following day, I thought about it a bit more. I’ve never had a blue interior either. No blue-painted rooms, no blue towels, no blue bedding, no blue pottery or glass, no blue pots & pans. Granted, blue isn’t one of my favourite colours – like purple or orange – but I’ve nothing against it. I love turquoise, royal blue and indigo… sky blue and baby blue, less so.

Perhaps I’d better make up for lost time – there’s so much fabulous blue vintage and interiors stuff out there!
