Happy Holidays,redecorating,french cushions,Cath Kidston lamps and more!!!
Am trying my best to catch up on blogs and update mine,its just a never ending battle to find time!!! have been really unwell the last 5 days with gastro and flu,just starting to feel human again,but still off my food,which is a blessing in disguise for me over easter as i havnt raided the kids eggs and i dont think there are any left! A good kick start to my diet.
Well,the last 2 months or so,i have been painting the outside of my house,and being 5 bedrooms and 2 storeys is no mean feat.It is coming along beautifully in a deep cream,white trim on windows,black gloss doors,guttering and ironwork.I have painted the deck tiles in a gloss black,so very ooh la la!!!! Am nearing the end,which is just as well as i think our summer and warm weather are well and truly over!In for a cold winter!!! Next job is our renovations,we are knocking out some walls and joining our kitchen and our back sun room into one big room,adding French doors and redoing kitchen completely.I think i am going for cream and white in a French style and no more pink!!! So i am having a big sale of furniture and lots of treasured pieces to make way for the new!!! So check out my ebay listings as i have some special pieces including my beautiful roses lounge suite!
I have been making more of my french farmhouse cushions using lots of old tickings,ribbons and buttons.I love recycling old teatowels,sheets and curtains to use in these cushions.My son has just returned from paris,so i have a new stash of goodies!!!I am going for a new look in my house,i think red and tan are the go! I just love the french fabrics and colours and so much more durable than pinks and whites when you have kids,cats dogs,lizards and husbands!!!!And may i add husbands mates who just dont appreciate that feet dont go on furniture or sweaty bums in cycling gear!!!
Having good school holidays here so far,staying at the outlaws,with Miss daisy and my niece,they are having a great time,even if i have spent half of it in bed! The holidays go so quickly,only a few days left! It is nice to get away to the country for a break.
Ryan is back from his trip to Europe and is adjusting well to being back home after so long away! he had a great time and now has all of term one school work to catch up on! So his holidays are spent stdying chemistry and maths,but after jetsetting around Paris,Denmark,Sweden and Germany,i think he cant complain!!!
Anyway,i had better go and socialise,we are all about to have a nice competetive game of scrabble!! Enjoy the holidays everyone! Check out my current ebay listings if you like the look of any of my latest items!!! I have a sale on many of my cushions at discounted prices!!!
Take care!! Les xxxx
