I enjoyed last Thursday’s Open House, so much, everyone. Thank you for popping by. I hope you’ll be over again today?
You may have noticed that my virtual home has been redecorated. I’m not really one for change, but fancied a little bit of colour.
Now, I only use free WordPress templates, currently, so I’m limited in what I can do to the place 😉
But it’ll do for now.
I also struggle a little with IRL (in-real-life) decorating. I have the very best of intentions. But as a patch of wall in my kitchen shows, I tend to put it off. Last October I painted a patch, with a test pot, and that’s as far as I got. Photo on Instagram.
But as I am participating in Helen from Clutter Rescues #springorganisingchallenge I’m hoping that by decluttering and thoroughly cleaning my kitchen, I will feel inspired to pick up a paint brush next week.
Watch this space.
It’s that time of year when I suddenly have a surge or energy to get sorted for…
here it comes…the C word….
And talking of Christmas, I have made my first purchase.
We’re very much into ‘making our own’ here, but I just could not resist buying some wonderful Christmas decorations from Kirsty Fanshaw Gifts. Below is another of my favourite of Kirsty’s creations – The rosette card.
And finally, I’m currently reading North & South by Elizabeth Gaskell. Did you know many of the classics are available to download free of charge on iBooks?
I just could not put it down last night. After watching the BBC dramatization (here’s a trailer) I was hooked! And as expected, now reading the actual novel has heightened the experience further as it fills in all the gaps, that no dramatization (no matter how well done) can fill.
(oh and being a bit of a languarge geek – I’m finding the vocabulary fascinating! I never realised that ‘factory’ is a shortened version of ‘manufactories’ from ‘manufacturing’. Now I type it I see it’s pretty obvious).
What’s happening in your world? Anything goes here, let’s talk!
