I have to say I am really loving winter. The bulbs are starting to flower in our garden (thank goodness they can do their thing without any effort on my part), and all the bare trees have given us a view that we don’t usually have, which still gives me a little surprise sometimes when I drive up our street. I’ve always dreamed of misty mornings and smoking chimneys and warm cosy houses when it’s cold outside – I’m not a hot weather gal – so this time of year is heaven for me. I’m also greatly appreciating that it’s nearly the school holidays again (time flies!). Maybe that’s why to me it feels like the week before Christmas – where everything needs to be sorted and wrapped up and finished by the end of this week!
These are some of the happenings in my world..getting these faux-bamboo chairs (above) ready to take to a client’s house. They’ve been sprayed glossy orange, though it looks red here, and paired with green ikat fabric. I think it’ll look fabulous paired with this:
I also spied these bargain white side tables at..wait for it..the Reject Shop! today:
Okay, maybe not the best quality, but still a bargain!
There’s also a sneak peak of some help I’ve given Ellise over at the Charles Whyte blog with her living room curtains, if you want to check it out..
