Minimalist bedroom makeover.

The title of this blog post says makeOVER, but I think makeUNDER would be a more accurate description. This room was ‘done’ before, but it really didn’t represent what I wanted from our bedroom, I’m not entirely sure how it ended up as it did, but I wanted change. It wasn’t terrible by any stretch…

Sunday garden thoughts…

As the weather improves, slowly, day by day, my thoughts again turn more and more towards the garden. Stu and I have had many ‘conversations’ (read arguments!) in the last 5 months or so about what we want for the garden, we haven’t seen eye to eye on many points, but I feel we have…

Isn’t it bloody infuriating when you’re trying to frame a nice print, you give the glass a good wipe to get rid of any marks/ dust, pop the print in, do it all up, flip it over and THERE ARE RUDDY SPLINTERS OF WOOD AND BITS AND PIECES STILL STUCK IN THERE!! So you do…

A perfect world in miniature.
