Introducing my latest blog of the week Elephantine. A peaceful place curated by Seattle based Rachel Ball, who lives with her husband and pets Rufus and Bodhi. A fellow lover of simple, pretty things and also it seems, just as baffled at keeping a house plant alive as me. (I am down to one thirsty looking little thing at the moment, every time someone gives me one as a gift I want to say take it home, it’ll be safer with you). I love Rachel’s beautiful photographs, a mixture of daily sightings, home life and kitchen brilliance. Dotted throughout her blog pages are Rachel’s What to wear features including cute outfits and accessories to compliment her hand made jewellery, and I’m sure after swooning over some of these lovely recipes you’ll be pleased to know she also sells beautiful kitchenware from the Mignon Kitchen co her other online shop.
