Heart and Home online shop

I am all about pretty things and am drawn to any shop that stocks items that appeal to my vintage and shabby chic style. Heart and Home is a new online gift shop that is right up my alley. They stock an array of beautiful accessories that are unique, charming and affordable, from both international and local suppliers. Take a look at some of their stunning range in the pictures below…


Birdcage + Mini Chest



Heart and Home specializes in home accessories, soft furnishings and gifts for children and adults, many of which are hand made. Each product is carefully selected to ensure a unique selection of gifts. This is a wonderful way to purchase birthday presents and wedding gifts for those loved ones who live in another part of the country as they offer a complimentary gift wrapping service! Each gift is carefully wrapped in cute polka dot gift wrap and red Petersham ribbon with a customized tag. During checkout of your purchase all that you are required to do is to indicate whether you would like your gift wrapped and write your personalized message and it will be delivered straight to the recipient.

They really do have a lovely selection of items. I’m trying to encourage more outdoor play so the tent teepee really appeals to me and it’s something that could be moved indoors should the weather turn! So pretty. The croquet set is also something I have my eye on. Very “Alice in Wonderland”!

Kathryn is a South African lifestyle blogger and mom of 2 who has been blogging daily for over 9 years! She writes about travel, health, beauty, fashion, decor and family... but not food (unless it's food she's eaten made by someone else) as she is a hopeless cook. She only wakes up early for 2 things... a red-eye flight to somewhere exotic and early morning game drives. She has just finished an extensive home renovation and would prefer to never see another box again. She's never met a chocolate or glass of bubbles that she didn't like!
