Went to my first carboot sale yesterday morning since lockdown, it rained!! but it felt good to be back.
Haven't been to a pub yet, have you?
Things are slowing getting back to normal even if that normal now involves masks, gloves, temperature checks and giving out your contact details incase you need to be traced!! Funny how quickly we get used to something, isn't it? Never would have guessed this a year ago!

By far my fave room in the house.
Floorboards like this are the ultimate dream..... 🤎 HOWEVER when your son stomps around like an elephant no amount of flooring love is going to sway me to keep it like this! 🔇
Happy Sunday guys. Hope you’ve had a lovely weekend.
We’ve been at some nurseries and garden centres today picking out some plants for the planters, was in my element. I’ve popped some of what we went for on my stories.
The shelves are also all finished and styled and I think it’s made such a huge difference to the room. Love them 😍 swipe to see how it was done. Good old MDF again 💓
Walls painted @farrowandball downpipe
Shelf above the bed 🌱 does anyone know how anyone ever thought artex was a good idea? As we rent, there’s nothing I can do about it. But please just know, if my future house has artex ceilings, they will be replaced immediately before moving in! #shelfie
Happy Sunday guys ✨ Hope you’ve all had a fab weekend! Yesterday we started the big post reno clean and actually managed to finish most of upstairs, still got to tackle the worst part which is downstairs though but that’s a job for another day 😂
A few more finishing touches this week - the light fittings are up 💡I love the look of blown glass pendants like this one, so that’s what we decided to go for throughout the whole house!
Zipper is installed and cushion cover is allllmost done. Feeling ~*very*~ accomplished for figuring out how to set up my sewing machine on my own for the first time (after @jaeseagee passed it on to me years ago 🤦🏼♀️ thx again!).
In the past I would just make my mom set it up her machine for me and also fix it every time the thread would get jammed (thx mom 💕)
But I figured it out and fixed all my own jams and now I’m back to planning my clothing line lol. Are you proud of me Tim Gunn?
Decided to go completely out of my comfort zone with a paint color. I usually do all white everything. Wanted something different for the office and bedrooms and landed on BM - Kendall Charcoal. It’s the perfect color for a moodier room and adds just enough dark without being cave-like. Super happy with how it turned out!

I’ve had a little bee in my bonnet and needed to get some quick projects done. If you’ve seen my stories today, you’ll see I’ve painted my pillars, I’m also creating two framed pieces for my children’s rooms and I’ve completed this Ikea mirror hack! However, I’m not too sure I like it 🤔🤭🙈 I wanted to add a little black as I like how it grounds in a lighter colour scheme BUT this sticks out like a sore thumb! Help! Send me your ideas please on how to style this into my room or should I change the tapes to gold?! Let me know please and thanks 🙏🏽

Every coat I own has holes in the pockets. It means keys, coins, hair clips - anything small enough to fall through ends up nestled in the lining, destined to be found only after frantic scrabbling and shaking. The reason is one only mothers with small children will understand. Our family walks are a treasure hunt of sorts, the undetermined riches only presenting themselves during our meandering routes. Seashells from the beach, smooth pebbles found on a riverbed, autumn leaves from the park - any discarded item that captures their imagination is slipped into in my pocket “to take home” by tiny hands. Over the years the weekend detritus has sagged and ripped the fabric inside my coat. One particular golden walk in Northumberland last year yielded acorn cups and pheasant feathers, all of which made their way home with us. The acorn cups are long gone, but I kept the feathers as a reminder of the day. They sit in a Hendricks gin bottle, itself a reminder of my 40th birthday party. So that’s my story for today’s @myhousethismonth. ‘A Bottle Of’... feathers.
