Frosty Morning

The gorgeous frosty morning the other week inspired me to get the camera out, so here are a few photos. I even got told off whilst taken them, someone asked if I had a pass!

bit of new and a bit of old!

We've been in our house for 3 years, and so far the only room we've really injected our personality into was our living room. Finally we have started to make our bedroom a nicer place to be in. Just thought I'd share a few photos. 

On this previously bare wall we now have a selection of cards and postcards in various frames. We plan to add a few embroidery hoops too, with some lovely fabrics and perhaps the cross stitch I am working on. I also love how easy it is to change the look of your room by putting in new images or swopping the frames round.

We also bought this piece of furniture from a charity shop the other week. It's so lovely to have something you know won't be in lots of other homes, as most of our furniture is from Ikea. Even better the dresser only cost £20! I just love it's 50's feel. We'll be on the hunt for more stuff like this from now on!

Cross stitch

Above is my initial design for a cross stitch of me, Joe and Winston that I want to make and put up in the house.

I was inspired by the amazing cross stitch patterns by Wee Little Stitches  like the ones below:

Scooby Doo


The Goonies
