Lovely things

I took a trip to Ikea and also Tkmax. I found these gorgeous letter trays reduced from £12 to £2 and a cute set of tins for £3.

The eldests new desk - he is growing up fast:

I would like a drawing of our house for our hall but they are about £50 so i thought i'd have a little go. I drew this little sketch and am pretty happy with the results. So i am going to do a bigger one using black pen and then frame it in white with a nice border:

For Christmas i got a lovely bar of chocolate with Best Mum on the front. I have only just realised that the back says this - cute!

I recieved a lovely card from my dear bloggy friend Kazzy. This cheered me up no end:

 Sunday was a lovely day. We went with the in laws and my mum to the seaside for breakfast and then up to Hadleigh castle. The boys had lots of fun with their swords, walking in puddles and rolling down hills:

We put my new bedside drawers up yesterday. Here they are:
As you can see there is lots to do in this room. We need to paper and paint the walls, get new curtains and nets, and renew the floor (When we took the over head wardrobes down we found that the floor boards had been laid around them - grrr! so we now have two patches of old, unusable floor boards. Eventually i would like white floorboards in this room, but for now we are thinking of 'Patching up' using the (luckily) found spare boards in the loft.



  1. you are doing a wonderful job of making your beautiful house a home x i love your sketch! you clever thing! i bet that would look great in pen and ink or even photocopy it larger size and go over it in pen and ink ;0) ...glad you liked the card x

  2. The set of cherry tins are so cute!
    Your sketch of you house turned out lovely..I think it will look really nice done larger and framed.
    Very nice bedside drawers..I like your radio on top. I hope the room makeover goes share photo's of it when it is all finished :)
    Have a great week!
