About me

Occupation Wife, Mother and Homemaker
Location United Kingdom
Introduction Hello my name is Thea I have lived in Cornwall but have now settled in the Staffordshire Moorlands. I live a simple life and enjoy every part of it,I try to leave no footprints and recycle my world where I can, I have a wonderful husband called Fin he is the most patient, caring, loving person, he is my best friend. I have been blessed with three beautiful children who are loved very much. I love gardening and homemaking and am always looking for ideas and inspiration in magazines, books and vintage finds. I like to take something that is a bit dull and boring and change it into an item of interest and beauty. I like nothing more than visiting charity shops looking for pre- loved treasures followed by a delicious afternoon tea in a traditional tea room,I love country walks..and feel most at home in the woodland where nature plays her tune.. I love to laugh!!
