Shortly after Easter this year I got a very bad concussion that left me on full bed rest for three weeks and semi bed rest for another 3 weeks. For the first three weeks after the diagnosis I was not allowed to use a computer or a phone. I could not even watch TV. I was only allowed to sleep or take a walk if I felt good. The first couple of weeks were hard. The following weeks were better as I learned how to pace myself. I realized that my body was quite adept at letting me know when it had had enough. And so I listened to me and surprisingly, I learned a lot about myself.

Bailey's store in Herefordshire

I have been going through a Rustic phase for a while now which basically means I am in love with everything old and wooden, natural fibers, natural decor and anything recycled, re-purposed or hand made. When I saw this post from Greige I just had to investigate further. 

Bailey's store which is located in Hereforshire in the U.K. (sigh....) has all of the above and much more. You can peruse their supply of eco-friendly goods here their recycled goods here and the rest of the store here. They have a huge selection of stuff that you can buy on-line or if you are lucky enough to live nearby, you can visit the farm buildings which house all these goodies directly.
