Not that it's good enough really, but I do have an excuse for being a bad blogger recently and not keeping up with my blog reading & commenting much either ... although that, I'm now trying to catch up with :) But in my defence, we've been pretty busy recently - you see, we've taken over Simon's grandmothers old house. Sadly, Nan passed away a couple of years ago, at the most amazing age of 101 ... and she was and still is in my eyes, one of the most incredible women that I had the privilege to know.
Anyway that aside, the house is just perfect .... it's a tiny, tiny house in Kent, right on the edge of the sea, and the creek flows right up past the edge of the back garden - I've lost hours watching the tide come in or out and the boats go by. So yes, because of that, I am aware that it's likely to flood, so with that in mind - I'm having the time of my life thinking of ways to decorate it cheaply and in the perfect shabby chic style.
It's not all been sunny days though - the house was just how Nan left it when she went into the home, more than 5 years ago ... although, certainly more spiders have taken residence in that time! But we've had a good month now of clearing it of all furniture, clothes and knick knacks and as you can imagine that is taking some time. Still, it's not a big rush and we're spending our weekends there anyway, so it's half the fun. Anyway, here is a layout I did of the day we got the keys ... yup, I couldn't have been happier.
So this blog, will now be a combination of craft related projects and also house makeovers ... I tell you, the blogs I've found recently for interiors ... wow, they'll blow your mind! So, be prepared, I'll be sharing those too with you now :)
