My Home

It may be dated with clashing carpets and wallpaper....the kitchen may be a little ermmm....80's, the bathroom with its peachy coloured suite but you know what, its my home and its what you make of it right?  Which is why i've posted a selection of photos of my favourite things.





A little corner in my 80's living room with my fab iMac (which i love love love).  The desk was secondhand but with an old embroidered cloth gave it a very vintage feel.  My chair which is a typical red office swivel chair covered in a throw with a little pillow saying 'love is a flower that never fades, it buds in youth and blooms with age'.




My bedroom, picture frame with my nan and grandad on their wedding day and a few bedtime reading books.






A table which i covered in decorative paper and coasters which i painted years ago....fake roses which i bought for 25p per bunch in a lovely creamy jug.  This lives in a little corner of the conservatory.




The 50's/60's fireplace....soo so dated but with a little love and tarting up actually looks quite quirky.











And the dining room table as it is today....little 70's doily things bought from ebay and a few fake flowers.  A vintage tea cup with a tea light living inside.





I love my little home...it might not be up to date and full of brand new things, but surely its about how you dress things yes?  I love pretty things which is why i cannot get rid of anything.  I've battled against this for a long time, but you know what?  It's ok...instead of being thrown away my things just hibernate for a while until its time for them to come out again :).

Considering i had to rebuild my home and life all those years ago...i don't think its all that bad!

  7. Half the fun of an older home is using those lovelies that are dear to our hearts -- they sometimes just don't "go" in a modern setting! Mine's a 60s home -- oh yeah, aqua bath!
    Loved peeking inside yours!

  9. Hello,
    I visited your blog today - I saw you on 'Yonks.' Your blog is lovely, and your pictures are soft and have a romantic look about them. Me and my daughters started a blog, and we would love it if you could visit us and follow. I would enjoy coming back to visit with you. Your blog is filled with beauty and simplicity - two things which I love. I hope to hear from you, and have a sweet day.
