something different

How about this for a bathroom floor??

Not exactly inspirational but this painted bathroom floor would certainly do my head in, especially after a couple of drinks!

eclectic eccentricity

Just recently i've become completely OBSESSED with floral vintage style jewellery. This jewellery from Eclectic Eccentricity is so gorgeous it's just too much - i love love love it and want it ALL...

kitchen countdown

Kitchen work officially begins this Saturday! Saturday 1st November to be precise, so no more procrastinating.
First job - painting walls!
Progress pictures on Monday!
I thought i would broadcast this fact so that i should feel thoroughly ashamed of myself if it doesn't get done. I am horrendously bad at putting DIY things off, i must keep thinking: nice kitchen = happier me

finland home

Beautiful scandi, minimal and vintage mix home from Tintin in Finland. Not a huge space but i love the style, use of light and cosy simplicity, good storage too.
Via Livingetc for more pictures and info. Monthly prize winner bloody well deserved!

about time

I really LOVE vintage wall clocks, mainly variations on the starburst are my faves. Not allowing myself to buy anymore though as i already have about 4, no harm in admiring though.....

Here's a few beauties i found on eBay (click picture for ebay listing) and i'm having naughty thoughts about buying the top one - it's so pretty

Starburst clock in situ below. This is the exact same clock as i have in my bedroom!!


wallpaper prints

Very feeble effort from me today, as i am so tired i can barely see. Found these simple prints on vintage wallpaper, available from the famous Keep Calm Gallery (or easily make your own!) More Keep Calm style prints here

Although in my present state of mind i am appropriately drawn to this one below.... :)
