Happy New Year 2015.
I hope you all had a fantastic Christmas celebrating and noshing with family and friends:-)
A few days ago l went through all the previous year's posts and selected some (a lot) of my favourite pics to share, although l really felt like it'd been a bit of nothing year, l see there's been a few positive changes and improvements:-)
The New Year had me creating a white day bed in the spare room...Just cos :-)
l DO love a Summer post... and it's worth the effort just to remember these warm days in the midst of Winter. Temperatures are quite wide ranging here where we live.....from -5 (Celcius) in Winter to over 40 in Summer.
Also in March hubby and l celebrated 30 years of marriage which was quite the milestone....and they said it wouldn't last....haha.
Lots of furniture got makeovers including this TV unit which began life as the base of a dressing table.
A 1950's prom dress pattern found at an antique fair was used it to make this ruffled tulle number.
Red lipstick music bunting celebrated Valentines Day.
A vintage wooden side table got a blue makeover.
Found lots of lovely old china to both sell and to add to my collection.
Around Easter l opened my stall for business at the Mill Markets, there's been some serious culling around the house since then.....which was needed, though l have to say also rather painful.
The main bedroom is forever changing...new linens always create impact .
From pink to blue.....
and new wall shelving too.
Sewed some Winter velvet slipcovers...changed up the tables and wall décor.
New paintwork on the dresser in the dining room.
Chosen to compliment the new paintwork in the adjoining kitchen...
Now a calming cohesive space....
Visitors arriving meant a do-over for the guest room. l painted some new artworks as well.
After a long cold Winter, Spring finally arrived and l wasn't about to miss a minute of it. The house was awash with flowers....
Whether from the market, the garden, or snapped from trees along the side of the road, flowers are forever inspirational.
Sewed more cushions and created new vignettes...always chopping and changing, an endless process.
After years of searching for a new dressing table the right size and style for this corner l finally gave up and decided to repaint the one l was already using.....Made my own chalk paint colour and was happy with how it turned out.
l wish you peace, love and happiness for the coming year. Thanks so much for popping in to visit over the past year and for your kind and encouraging comments.
