Happy New Finds …. Spring

Happy New Finds …. Spring

Spring is definitely in the air here in Blighty and we have been out and about finding happy new finds and buying bits and bobs for our home.  As you can see from above…I am introducing Orange into our home…I never liked this colour before and would never never buy any combination of it! lol! silly me! anyway this colour is growing on me BIG TIME!…Its so fresh for Spring…and with the yellow….oh its just DiViNe!.

I have re-styled this area…as I felt it needed a bit more colour…and freshening up.

I have been quite lucky finding pretty wonderful items lately….hehehe! whether its because my taste has turned into a bad one! and everyone leaves the ‘gawdy’ stuff that I like! or I have just been lucky! I don’t know! :p

….But I feel I am moving into the ‘Next phase’ more retro, 1960’s kitschy stuff…well ok – yup I have always really been into this kinda look, but without the orange it was all a bit difficult…

so I would buy things and hide them! 😀 ! C’mon gals…you all know this little trick! :)))…and sneak them out when no-one was looking!

This way it kinda introduces the family to your way of thinking! lol! kinda like if you fancy a holiday!…by leaving some brochures around the house and not saying anything!…he suggests the holiday! even though it was your idea in the first place! 😉

Right so now we are all on the same wavelength!…and to my amazement Hubby brings home this wonderful chair, the other day – can you see it in the background!…I’ll do another post about that soon! that is a story in itself!!

I also seem to be going through a ‘swanny’ phase…flowers look so lovely displayed in the one above…especially lovely pink roses.

Yep quite a collection I have now….I started it about 6 months ago and I have become infatuated with them…they are so beautiful.

Have you changed your mind about certain colours lately? If so tell me about it!

Bye for now my luverlies 🙂

    Every time I visit your blog, I resolve to check in more often – such a cheery place!LOVE the orange (not a surprise for a Halloween artist though, lol) – and I read somewhere the color orange actually has healing properties – releases some chemical in the brain or something…Oh, and Rosie is just sooooo adorable!♥ Carolee

    Have I ever changed the colors I like. I use to like the primitive colonial look, dark colors, plaids and such, but having read several blogs from England about ladies such as yourself who love bright and "happy" things, I have now repainted my entire house in pretty, bright, pastel colors and want lace at all my windows and an English garden outside. I am even going to make a union jack flag for my upstairs hallway. It's all you English ladies' fault I've changed so much and I love you for it. You have brightened my world. Kate from Indiana
