the doors

Today we have two new doors*
not just new doors but new doors with new rooms behind!

*vintage doors from 'house of reclaim' in Fordingbridge
chair from 'the dump' (painted by me)
cute vintage patchwork cushion from local carboot sale...
don't you love her madly?

didn't we have a lovely time the day we went to the Olympics

 So this is where I spent last Friday!
I'll let the pictures do the talking...

 *Yohan Blake....swoon

What an amazing day and a wonderful Olympics,
thank you to all the brilliant volunteers and all the Athletes of course!
*ps. I seem to have developed a teensy bit of a crush on Yohan Blake...lush!

a creative slump..

It seems it's not just me who's having a creative fugg...
 goodness knows how long it's been like this,
thank heavens for country living magazine,
what a great support!
 So you can see why I have creators block,
but you can't hear why..
if you could you would hear
 workmen knocking through our dining room wall,
high pitched singing
and lots of spine chilling drilling.
Roll on 4 o'clock when I can tiptoe downstairs to take a looky!

building materials..

 Never under estimate the stress of building work
the generosity of bloggers.

I have Deb from Simply Miss Luella
to thank for all these lovely florals
all the way from California!
Deb you have rescued me from a land of noise and disruption,
now to find my creative mojo...
