Feb 3rd, 2019 Sunday 7 Bean 15 min read

[AD – some (about half) affiliate links have been used in this blogpost.] Hello, How’s your week been? Aside from the inevitable minor dramas which, when living in England, go hand-in-hand with a wee dusting of snow… not much going on here at Chez Threads this past week. We may have finally, finally… like… f.i.n.a.l.l.y. said goodbye to January, but the ‘hangover’ of fatigue from what…

[AD: affiliate links have been used in this blogpost; although to date, I am still approximately $9,999,947 shy of buying that retirement home in the Caribbean I have my eye on.] … Hello, How are you all doing on this fine, freezing cold, 97th day of January…?! It sure is the longest month, E.V.E.R. And yet… we are almost there guys. Almost. I’ve decided to do…

Sunday 7 – Minimal-ish New Year, New-in Styles

Jan 13th, 2019 Sunday 7 Bean 19 min read

Hello! And belated Happy New Year (which feels like donkeys ago now, doesn’t it?) I’m not going to mull over the festive break… just to say it was a good, long, restful one & hope yours was good too? There’s an awful lot going on at home here at Chez Threads, a transitional period between the end of one chapter, though the page has not…


Sunday 7 – Dressing Down to Dress up

Hello, How are you? Apologies for the delay in getting this final Sunday 7 of the year published…more a Tuesday 7, but that doesn’t sound quite as good, does it?! It’s a very busy time of year for pretty much everyone though, right? This post is probably also a bit too late in terms of Christmas Parties and the like, but if like me, you don’t…


Life in the 70s: Going Full Circle?

Dec 2nd, 2018 Small Talk Bean 13 min read

Hello, How are you all doing with your Christmas shopping & decorating? We don’t have a tree up yet. Zero decorations, in fact. We’re getting a bit of carpentry done at home next week… not the best timing, but it’s just how it’s worked out. Hopefully, hopefully… we can decorate the house after that. So… from the title of this blogpost, you may have guessed,…

Hello! Welcome back to a Sunday 7! Getting festive this week, and taking a look at Christmas Jumpers. It’s Christmas Jumper day on December 14th… according to Save the Children but, in order to make the most of your investment, I think it’s OK to wear your festive knit or sweatshirt anytime from now, right through January… … and in fact, if you choose wisely, and go…

AHello there! I’ve been a little absent from my usual Sunday 7 slot… it’s getting to that time of year again, a bit like the Summer Sales, where it’s everywoman for herself, with ‘Black Friday’ deals being fired at us left, right and centre… … and if it’s not BF deals, then it’s the Party Dress edits or Party Shoe edits on the regular blogs…


Sunday 7 – The Patterned Knit Edit

Nov 4th, 2018 Sunday 7 Bean 19 min read

Hello, And welcome back to a clothing Sunday 7 – after last week’s Gallery Wall With Hidden Meaning Sunday Blog! It’s been half term here, and the older boy’s birthday (the day before) Halloween, so things have been pretty hectic here in the Threads household. So much so, that I’ve pretty much worn jeans with my new Samsoe & Samsoe Fabrizia Sweater for a full week and…


A Gallery Wall with Hidden Meaning

Oct 28th, 2018 Small Talk, Small Town Home Bean 13 min read

Hello, And welcome to a Sunday… blog-post. No actual Sunday 7 today, just a generic little blog-post, about my lounge room Gallery Wall, which has taken some 6 years to put up. In fact, longer if I count the years which Mr T & I have shared a home – all of which pretty much sported, bare, naked walls! So here it is, my gallery…
