Some of my closer friends will know I am prone to the odd weird dream. And when I say weird I mean really weird!
Last night I dreamt that a nun came to sort out my wardrobes! I got really cross with her because she moved all my stuff and made it really difficult for me to get to my clothes. BUT she found some more shelves at the back of the wardrobe, and they were filled with pretty jewellery and accessories! And then, like Narnia, we found a door at the back of the wardrobe and there was a large extra room to the house that we never knew was there! But the only way you could access it was through my wardrobe, so I was then trying to figure out if I could knock through anywhere to access it, but I couldn’t figure it out!
I don’t know why I didn’t just move the wardrobe! 😂
What do you think that means? Answers on a postcard!
It’s Tuesday and I find myself in the role of “mum’s taxi” today as the kids sporting activities have resumed! I’m hoping I’ll get chance to plonk myself in this armchair for a while as after all that dreaming I’ve woke up exhausted! @storyofmyhome WILD THING @myhousethismonth

Haven't posted much lately - working full time with a new puppy doesn't leave me much spare time and the house is a mess 🙈 He's fast asleep so quickly cleaned the downstairs loo before I start work. Swipe left for a cute puppy pic 🐾
Navajo motifs are transferred to different fabrics using a variety of printing, weaving and embroidery techniques. Extraordinary patterns and vibrant colours give this theme a fresh touch, while coarse fabrics in jute and refined linen recall the more rustic beginnings of this very current trend, adding depth and texture to the collection.

Wicker hanging pot from @hmhome and faux plant ( wouldn’t be able to keep a real one alive 🙄) from a local garden centre.
I did it, I only bloody did it and tackled the huge floordrobe in our room, hiking to the peak of everest had nothing on that baby, a giant mound of 70s crimplene, faux fur and sequins, it looked like a drag queen's charity shop donation. 🤦♀️😂
Styled up the Greek flokati rug I bought at the car boot for £12, can decide if I prefer it as a rug or a throw, one thing I do know that by thrifting I saved myself £400, and saved something beautiful from landfill 😁
I think that this possibly is one of my best ever thrifts, whats yours?
Almost everything thrifted.

I have lots of quirks... one being that when I start to clean my house, I start in the same spot and go through the same routine every time. If I try to start in another area, I just don’t feel like I’m as efficient or productive. The kitchen has to be clean first for me.... any body else do this? Lie to me.

Bojangles certainly knows the best spots in the house 🐈

Two things that bug me from this shot.
1. The lime green filing cabinet. I’ve been searching for years for a teak or rosewood vintage filing cabinet, with dansette legs preferably, and with practical filing capabilities, but alas, nothing. My next option is to paint the green out brown, so it doesn’t stick out like a sore thumb. I have got some lime green 70s coasters scattered around which helps tie it in a bit, but it’s still just too garish for in here. (he says!)
2. The back wall behind the pink door I really want to paint a colour, I’ve done a few mock ups but am still undecided- I might show you on stories. Oooorrrr.......I could do some supergraphics...🤔
In other news, I have a little feature this evening on @flourishaddict so go and check it out and please please give me some support! Be there or be square!
Trójmiasto i moje top 3 kawiarnie!
Tu wnętrze jednej z nich, gdzie flat na zimno był idealny,do tego wnętrze totalnie w moim stylu.
I tak już mam ,że wyjazdy to dla mnie również odkrywanie kawiarni, knajp i szukanie smaków i miejsc do zdjęć!
Oznaczycie mi swoje ulubiony kawiarnie Polsce?
Tak, w całej Polsce! Bo szykuje się na jesień sporo wyjazdów, będziemy w różnych zakątkach, więc chętnie poznam Wasze rekomendacje!
Well I feel as though I have a whole new piece of furniture since giving my filing cabinet a lick of paint! I really like how the cute colours on the top, pop! It’s funny how such small changes can make an impact. I like the new muted colour. It’s completely not the colour I wanted, but it’s better than the lime green and it’s definitely growing on me. I’m gonna give myself a week and then decide whether to re do it in the richer, reddish brown it was meant to be!
Rebelling against the prompts again today because I simple couldn’t wait to share my gorgeous new cabinet!
Inspired by a similar piece she created for Wendy @the_yorkshire_homestead the fabulous Zoe @zoe_morton_shaw_interiors has upcycled this beautiful china cabinet for me with a stunning grey and gold ombré effect. I cannot tell you how thrilled I am with it.
My grandma had something similar, filled with treasures, and whenever my sister and I visited her we would stand and stare at all the lovely things inside. Mine houses treasures of a different kind! Anyone for a cocktail?
