Hello gals…well I hope you all had a good weekend and that it is sunshining wherever you are. At the moment the Happy House is in a bit of a turmoil!…Yep it has finally happened…I have my mojo back!
A few months ago I blogged HERE that I wanted to do something about my ugly 1970’s cupboard…which is good for storage, but not very nice looking…alot of you told me to paint it or to bring in another dresser that I had in storage…and for a few months I have really not been bothered to do anything about it!
But the other day I was interviewed by a magazine and all the questions the lovely lady asked me…I thought ‘hell yeah’ I did do that and I can do that…if you get my drift…anyway it has made me more determined to get sorted and start throwing out my chintz so to speak ;)!…so the Happy House is all sorted and clean for Chrimbo!
Back in the summer…do you remember, we decorated in a very ‘Kitsch’ way adding colours like orange into our colour scheme….Well lately as I look around, I do yearn for our Happy Shabby look again…we have lived with this look for years and years and somehow I have had this urge to get ‘rid’ of this kitschy colour and revert back to our old ways…so the other day I expressed my feelings to Freddy and to my surprise he agreed.
‘You can have free range’, he said…Ahh Brilliant I here you all shout…lol! But if only I had of ignored that little ‘free range’ quote and stopped right there and then! for now I have wrecked every room by starting all at the same time…we are having a major SPRUCE UP…I just had to do it! I have been living with the colours that I would tell everyone else NO! dont you dare buy that! for a few months now…and although it is in fashion…its just not me! I have never been a fashionable bird anyway…
I have just sat down here for a few minutes with a cup of Cinamon spiced Chai Latte…my favourite drink at the moment…and thought I had better fill you in 😉 …I’ll keep you updated as I re-arrange, paint and tidy each room! I think the dining room might have to be finished last…as I have everything stock pilled in there that I no longer want!Have you been inspired lately to have a big change around in your house and if so what has spurred you on…
Oh and please remember to enter my Cath Kidston Day Bag Give-away…remember you can enter as many times as you like CLICK HERE to enter…it will b e drawn on October 31st.
