Hallo again everyone. I bet you didn't expect to find me here again today! Blame it on the sunshine, that's what I say!
I was walking through the garden room a short while ago, and thought I would take a few photos to show you. We don't really know what to call this room, so I've decided on garden room, although I guess that might sound a bit pretentious! I used to say conservatory, but it's not that really, because it's a room with skirting boards, coving and a real ceiling! Anyway, it's a great space, which we had built about four years ago now. It's ideal for entertaining, because it's got a flagstone floor, and, of course, it's a wonderful space for the little ones to play. It's also a nice, light airy room as well.
I still have dark furniture in the house, but I really do love the shabby chic look. It's just so much lighter and really brightens up a room. As spring is just around the corner, hopefully, I bought this cushion yesterday. It just makes me smile every time I walk past it.
This little table is a new addition. I replaced the old handles with these glass ones, which my youngest daughter gave me as part of my Christmas present.
The mugs and pretty little tin here were, again, part of our Christmas pressies from youngest daughter. The Dig for Victory one is for hubby to use out in the garden in the new greenhouse, but I thought they were too nice to use, so I've got them on a little table that I renovated last year. Silly not to use them really, I suppose and I'm sure the Dig for Victory one will be used once hubby is able to get out in the garden again.
This little chap I quite like and, again, it makes me smile when I walk past.
I still can't get over how quickly the photos upload now, using Google Chrome - wonderful!
This little table you've seen before, but I just love the pretty shape. This one sits in the hallway, just by the entrance to the garden room. I'm a great one for having photos of the family around, as you can probably imagine.
The pretty shells on this table were collected by my youngest daughter and her hubby when they went on their delayed honeymoon to The Dominican Republic early last year.
I think that my home really reflects my personality - how about yours? (I can just see a funny comment coming from my dear friend Shady to that question. You see, I know him so well!!!).
Anyway, I hope you didn't mind me popping by again today. Romance will feature quite heavily in my next three posts - at least I'm giving you fair warning here! I, myself, am a hopeless romantic. (I'm saying nothing about hubby here!!! Hee Hee!!). My two daughters are the same, and love planning surprises for their other halves.
I still remember when Emma's (daughter number one) husband had to go to London on a course several years ago now. He was in his hotel room, and they were talking on the phone. Suddenly there was a knock on the door, so he said to Emma "I have to go, as there is someone at the door." When he opened the door, Emma was stood there with a bottle of champagne! She had travelled up from Devon especially to surprise him!!
See you all again soon my friends. (You will probably notice that I have removed the snowy picture from my header. I have replaced it with these daffodils, which I took in my garden in March last year. I really am starting to look for signs of spring now!!).
