KEEPING COSY THIS AUTUMN

Autumn is the season that defines the transition from summer to winter, the weather gets colder and the days get shorter, trying to hang on to the feeling of warmth can be challenging.

As soon as I can see the sunny days descend into windy evenings, and feel the slight biting chill in the air, all I want to do is snuggle up inside the house. ‘Fall’ colours - burnt umber, dark oranges, deep reds and browns – are my favourite, I prefer darker colours as they are richer, and aren’t as cold as other paler shades. Bright colours are okay too, but I prefer the subtle tones of the warmer autumnal hues.

HAPPY HOUSE SHENANIGANS

 happy loves rosie style

Having a little perusal around the internet the other day got me thinking that I wouldn't mind getting a wardrobe for Freddy's bedroom...you know his bedroom has been in the Dining room since his accident last December...I think the last time I updated you all about this was that he was receiving physio therapy and that there was a chance that he would walk again! well that has not happened because his limbs are too lax due to his Ehlers Danlos Sydrome!

Retro Style is interesting, vibrant, and central to my karma!
However Retro is not just a look or feel!
It can also be a longing for simplicity and a more concise life.

3 EASY STEPS TO THE PERFECT KITCHEN

3 steps to the perfect kitchen
What makes a kitchen perfect? In my eyes, there are a few things to look at. It needs to be attractive yet practical, for a start. And it also needs to be easy to clean and safe.
Now, you might be wondering why I’m asking this question. Well, several years ago, older readers of this blog may remember that we decided to tweak our kitchen a bit with vintage french enamel worktops and covered the kitchen doors with white sticky backed plastic!...
