Sunday ramblings

                   

Hello lovelies,

 I love Sunday's. I think it's my most favourite day of the week. It's were house work has been done (hopefully), and chilling out time really starts. It normally involves at least one house or garden job but that's ok. If the kids are on board then we'll go for a walk and collect chestnuts. I fancy making a cake today too. But let's not rush... For now it's cup of tea time and a good vintage interiors mag and back to bed for a lazy Sunday morning.

                                                             Have a lovely day.

CREATIVE CRAFT WEEK END

                         
                         
                         
        
                        

 Hello lovelies,

I'm planning on having a creative wkend. I'm not sure what doing yet, as that is the curse of the crafty sort! We're quite flitty lol. I may bake a cake, I fancy orange and polenta. And I fancy finishing some paintings too. I've just received some gorgeous trims so want to make some pretty cushions too. Then I think we'll go to Ampthill park and collect chestnuts so I must take out the big camera and get snap happy. Phewww being bored is for the boring lol. What are you up to this wkend? Whatever it is, I hope you have a fab one!

TEA N A CHAT AND A BIT OF PINK PAINT.

                     

Hello lovelies,

I posted this pic of our living room door earlier on Instagram. I'm going to give it a lick of paint. I can't stand orange pine, and those handles are going to have to go! I put pink to the vote and guess what?... You all agreed (smiley face). Great minds think alike. I've just managed to persuade Mr C that this is an awesome idea. (I'm very clever at that! What's even more clever is when he thinks it was his idea LOL). So after a bit of work Saturday morning I think I may just get the paint brush out and nip to Laura Ashley for a nice handle. 
I do love to paint stuff, and enjoy constantly changing our rooms around. There is so much you can do with a pot of paint, and although it has gone up a bit, it is still a relatively cheap option to update your home. Anyhoo, ramble over... Soon be the wkend!

Hello lovelies,
Was feeling in a pink mood today, can you tell...?
Thought I'd capture some of my fav things, blooms, china and pretty cotton.
Hope everyone has had a good day!

POLAGRAM PICS

       






       
       
       
       
       

Hello lovelies,

I tried out a fab new app the other wk called 'Polagram'. It's amazing! It's a cheap, professional way of getting Polaroid style shots. Just up-load the pics you want, hit buy, and in a couple of days they drop through the letter box! I do have a little picture machine for printing my own, but I have to say this was so easy and my shots look great! Such good quality! I'm going to frame some to go in the new bathroom, but for now I've made a pretty washing line in my craftservatory, using some vintage trim and some mini pegs from amazon.

                                                        Have a lovely lazy day.
