Day 28: From down low... In a house where space is of a premium & the owner is a serious lover of ‘stuff’, every inch of that space needs to be used in some way shape or form to showcase said ‘stuff’ ... I have 2 staircases in my house & they are the only spaces that still look as they did when I first moved in as funds for secondary spaces ran dry - cue the need to adorn the thick anaglypta wallpaper (which comes in a whole host of differing patterns 🤣) & deep shag pile patterned carpet with as many object ‘d ‘art as possible & have a constantly evolving walk through gallery until funds allow me to do more curated works of art 🤣
My favourite way to explore a city is to sneak around the back streets looking for gorgeous alleys and corners... or staircases just like this. 🌱Discovering little spots of beauty that I would never have noticed had I stayed on the main drag. ☀️
There’s probably something deeper there about the unexpected beauty we find when we choose to step off the treadmill of our expected life and venture in to the unknown... but I’ll leave that to you 😉
We didn't know if we had too many or not enough things to fill the gallery wall up the stairs, turns out it's not enough and there's space in the middle to add more at a later date.
It's an eclectic mix but I think I love it, it's like our gallery of geek!
We are home from the hospital after his overnight stay. When I walked into his room he was eager and ready to go! He did all of his PT and OT exercises with very little help. 👏🏼 🙌🏼 Now resting and icing while I make dinner. I’m so happy he’s back. 😊😘 #moveeveryhour#upthestairs#downthestairs#ptisgoodforyou
Hope your all well! Thought I’d share some landing shots today, we carried on the ‘superfresco easy white bellagio wallpaper’ up the stairs from the porch and we use the shelf at the top of the stairs with the baskets to store our towels and toiletries. Also we love how well this light goes up here and love the unusual shape of it!
So I got stuck in Insta jail today! I think I’m free now however I’ll hold off any commenting until tomorrow just to be sure I’m not just on probation! Don’t want to be serving anymore Insta time!
How’s your day been everyone?! I have to be honest and say we’ve had a fairly slow day, I don’t think I got dressed until lunchtime! Not like I had anywhere to be so I didn’t mind too much!

I can hear chants and incantations
And some guy is mentioning me in his prayers
Well, I don't know what it is
But there's definitely something going on upstairs ...”Dig, Lazarus, Dig” by Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds
Things I tell my 9yo a zillion times but which don't seem to stick (and now that I am reflecting, it is nearly the same with my husband😂😂) - folded clothes on your bed can go in your closet
- if you leave dirty clothes under your bed, chances are I don't find them to wash them
- a backpack in the middle of the hallway could lead to an accident
- if it is cold outside, put on a jacket
And so on and so forth. I love her to bits btw, dont get me wrong❤❤ What are you constantly reminding your kid of??🤔 Caro from @corporatemumsbalancingact
Good morning Sunday. It’s been a crazy week of non-stop working but all very exciting...one more busy working day today and then tomorrow some chilled family time.
I must catch up on #myvintagemyantique stories as I haven’t posted one for a while so here’s a quickie. See that beautiful large red ceramic piece? It’s West German 1970s. I bought it from a dealer about 4 years ago with a plan to sell it. But I got very attached to it. 😀 Whenever @juliaalexanderinteriors and me run our @alexandbro styling workshops in my home, everybody wants to buy it. Can’t think how many times I’ve said no. It’s a keeper. The colour, texture, shape - love!
