my new favorite room

This room looks so light and airy, it is something I couldn't achieve in my own house as a living room because the dimensions are completely different. However, I would love to incorperate some of the ideas from this room into a breakfast room ( when! we get our extension off the ground), imagine sitting in a room like this eating a warm english muffin with a pot of steaming hot coffee in the morning sun.........................

were going on a chair hunt.......

This chair just looks perfect for curling up with a good book and a coffee, fabulous!

But I do digress in fact i'm looking for dining chairs my battered old dining table is gorgeous but the chairs are not! They were 'given' to us by the owner of the house (in other words he couldn't be bothered to take them!!) but anyway they have done but I am now on the search for new ones. I'm toying with the idea of either scouting around junk shops for mis-match ones or buying a set, what do you think??

I know these aren't technically dining chairs but aren't they just wonderful!!

Fabulous Aprons

I've just been checking out what all the wonderful talented people on Folksy have been creating and came across these fabulous aprons from Purlesque Craft Boutique I hope you like them as much as I do

{household management? or in need of a manager?}

I think I may need to call upon those better suited to illnesses AND managing the house this week!! I have 3 sick children and another who is on her way ............. thankfully the littlest is safe ..... for now .....

It does seem to be proving a bit of a testing time at the moment just when I think that i've got one thing sorted another crops up but that is the joy of motherhood I expect

But on the plus side we did manage to sort our front garden out yesterday.....well I say we but I can't say I actually did that much apart from direct as to what I wanted to be done! I am pleased its been done the house was starting to look like some kind of student dwelling with things piled up to be taken to the dump (since June!!), trees have been pruned, the horrid 70's Pampas grass has now gone (YAY!!!!) but there is still quite a bit to be done

........I can feel another list coming on............
