Thank you for the replies yesterday about the room decoration, in the end I went for Ivory Cream and am really happy with the result. It's a lot brighter and I have my new piece of artwork for above the sofa, Mum has bought it for me for my birthday but is being lovely and not making me wait until July to have it! I will show you pictures of everything next time once I've done the final touches and you can have a look.
Here is just a peek at how dingy the old colour looked compared to the new (the old is in the middle in case you can't tell!)....
To the, ahem, charming anonymous poster who left a comment on the previous post I would have a lot more respect for you if you weren't too afraid to say who you are! I could say so much but instead will just point out that it was a light-hearted post and it's MY blog and I'll say or ask what I like thanks. If you don't like what you see then please don't read it!
Onto more pleasant things, we just had my Mum and brother over for tea, which was lovely. It would have been my Dad's 63rd birthday today so I wanted to mark the day in a nice happy way. Cue more red spot overload! I would love to say that I baked the cakes myself but what with a start of the month food shop and getting the furniture back in the living room I just didn't have time. I still miss my Dad every day but I'm very happy to say that I didn't dread today in the same was as I did last year and there have been lots of smiles and happy memories :)
Hope you've all had a great weekend and wishing you a nice week ahead xxx
Hi, I'm 33, I have two young daughters and I am in a bit of a transition and life change at the moment! Hopefully you will want to see how it goes with me.
I love things with a bit of history to them and enjoy their extra character. I enjoy sewing and embroidery when I get the chance! I love fabrics, ribbons and buttons... and chocolate.
I try to follow William Morris' guidance of "Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful".
Thank you for visiting my blog x
