Colour is for me is food for the soul ... my style is shabby country meets Cath K !! i have many hobbies i like painting furniture and generally giving new life to things that have been pre owned and rummaging around junk shops but more importantly i like my home to be a safe cosy comfy retreat..for all that come .....

This year ..hope so


Don't you just love this wallpaper its a Cath Kidston print and i,m hoping that its still in print when we get around to putting it up , I have the bedlinen in the similar CK design and it looks rather lovely i bought it from eBay that is the colour palette .add some gingham and duck egg blue ,here and there .. lovely ...i can see it all finished ....
I,m yearning for an old fashioned iron bed , well i would settle for a newish one pretending to be old ..if that doesn't happen then the pine one will have a face lift .i will paint and distress it , loads can be stored underneath the bed in trunks , our bedroom is small ..and when we decorate we may have to sleep in the camper in the driveway ..should be fun... we haven't got a spare bedroom..maybe one day ...
Anyways it will be a summer task ..as we are waiting for the roof man to fix a damp problem first .. but the good ones are always busy but worth waiting for.
