hello

Welcome to my little corner of the internet!
I am Maria,

I am in love with and married to Steve, the most wonderful man, who makes my life complete.

He has built us a lovely cosy wooden cabin in the Welsh hills and I still can't get over the breath-taking views.

Our little boy was born in the Spring of 2015 and we are both head-over-heels for him.

We have a gentle wolf in the form of an Alaskan Malamute, who howls like he' s in the wild and can't wait for Billy-boy to grow up so they can go on adventures together. My sweet companion, Dilly-dog sadly died not long before her 14th birthday and we have recently got a new friend for Timber-wolf and Billy-boy, who both miss her greatly .... a crazy little springer boy called Duggee!


I was born in my parents first little cottage into a lovely Christian family with 4 nutty brothers and my mum spent many hours making things for us all. Spaceships for the boys, dolls clothes for me and flapjack for us all. So my life has been spent surrounded by crafts and half finished projects.

I love making things, reading, going for walks, drinking tea, taking photos, smelling roses and dreaming!

I am living the dream I have waited for my whole life!


I have been trying to live a more synthetic free and holistic life and using essential oils is a huge part of my journey towards wellness and I would love to share it with you!

I love reading and although don't get as much time to disappear into a book the way I used to, I still have my favourites and you can see them here --->
