Bedhead heaven

Hello peeps!
Just thought I would quickly share my new wonderful bedhead with you all. Isn't it lovely?! It really finishes the room off now we also have the built-in-robe installed too. The great people at Heatherly Design made the bedhead for me. I am now in the middle of stripping back the outside of the french doors so I can paint them. Huge job but it will be worth it in the end!  Hope all is well in your part of the world. C ♥

Oh my goodness! I can't believe I have not blogged since June! What a terrible blogger I am. I won't offer any excuses as it's just the same old story, not enough hours in the day to do everything I want to do. Anyway here I am to say "hello" and tell you a little of what's been happening.
Mostly I have just been working, pottering at home, visiting friends and family, gardening and selling vintage homewares on Etsy. I have sold quite a few treasures lately which has been fun. I love packaging them up with white tissue paper and baker's twine. Isn't it wonderful to buy something on the internet and it arrives a week later like a suprise in the mail? One item I was going to list and then decided I might keep instead is this lovely set of teaspoons. They were tarnished and tired but an hour of polishing and they look great now. I love the Art Nouveau design on the handles and could not part with them.
Well that's it from me for now. I hope all is well in your part of the world! C ♥

I'm hooked!

Oh dear, I'm hooked on Pinterest! Have you seen it? It's soooo gooood!
I love looking at all the wonderful images everyone sources and adding them to my boards. At the moment I am taking advantage of the great bathroom ideas out there and am saving them for inspiration for my renovation. Here's one I love. So exciting! I've added a Follow Me button if you want to check it out.  C ♥

What now?

Should I admit defeat and ackowledge that I can't seem to find enough time to blog regularly? Or not worry and just post when I do find the time? Hmmm, let's pop that thought in the too hard basket for a little while!

On a renovating issue I finally got around to removing the old ugly tiles from around the fireplace. It took a fair bit of hammer & chiselling but it looks so much better. I have drawn up plans for a custom fire surround made of MDF that I will paint. Then we can install a gas log fire. Lovely! C ♥

Where did it go?

Eek look at the date! Where do the days go? Where do these blogging people find the time to blog? Maybe I'm disorganised... although everyone tells me I am so far from disorganised it's not funny! Anyhoo, here I am... on holidays actually... which is why I have some time to blog! I am trying to work out how to put my Iphone photos onto the laptop so I can show you some holiday pics. Rain check on that one! Here's one of the Little Dog - he's staying with Uncle Stormy while we're away (and having lots of adventures by the sound of it!). OK well cheerio for now. I hope everything is well in your part of the world. C ♥

A quote a day...

Hello everyone! I love quotes - they are funny and inspiring and make you contemplate life. This one is from Laura Trevey at Etsy.

Life just whizzes by so quickly it's good to be able to slow down now and then and take a breath. This quote makes me think that sometimes life is too fast and we keep putting off things we should be doing now! Not because we can't do them, but because we can't seem to make the time to do them. I hope this year I (and you too?) can achieve something we've been wanting to do for ages. On a lighter note, I found this funny quote on Etsy too! Hope all is well in your part of the world. C ♥

Happy New Year...

Hello blog friends. I am feeling a little flat this morning and was thinking of ways to help cheer me up. Anything orange always makes me feel better so I made a little collection of orange-y fun. I hope the images make you smile too. C ♥
