Middle Month

June already and the Summer holidays are only weeks away.
It's also the last month before little H becomes a teenager and we are already experiencing the joys... I'll  leave it there for now!

Blogging is a little hit and miss with me at the moment, I  seem to have the attention span of a goldfish. I think Instagram has to take some responsibility for this as it's an instant fix when blogging seems to take up so much time.
I have every intention to carry on with this blogging malarkey as I do love it but the way things are going , I predict I will continue along the 'every now and again' path.

Aside from the pre teen shenanigans things are tickety and jobs are slowly but surely being crossed off the list

I JUST managed to paper the garden room with the last remaining roll (I kid you not) of Chintz wallpaper  in the country!
It was touch and go as to whether I could eek it out but I made it.
Garden room sounds very grand but in actual fact it's the back half of the garage which we converted to make a room joining the kitchen to the garden, a bit like a conservatory minus the glass!

The Kitchen unit has been painted 

Try not to notice that smudge on the glass!!!

 Iv'e done a few little crafty bits and pieces

A first attempt at bag making, complete with vintage tablecloth lining and pockets!

a few cross stitch bits and bobs for card making

  and one or two car boots have come up trumps.

apologies for the photos, some were taken in the dark and the others could have been edited slightly better.
I promise I will try harder next time!

Oh yes nearly forgot to mention, if you want to check me out on Instagram the link is in my sidebar, its the little camera button above the Pinterest button

Thanks x 


  1. Wow, you've been a busy bee! Don't know what to comment on first so will simply say it's all lovely. Lovely lovely lovely. xx

  2. Nice to 'see' you again! My, do I miss those car boots sales! You have a few treasures there and I love what you accomplished in the garden room!
    Teenagers...Ah well, hang in there Sweetie! That's where crafting, reading and an occasional glass of sherry helps!

  3. You have certainly been busy! I love the cross stitch and the Cath Kidston wallpaper. We have the wallpaper in my craft room (it will be the nursery once we get it sorted!).... it is my favourite pattern! x

  4. The wallpaper is lovely & I like the plate, tray & cupboard! I agree with you about Instagram, more people are using it as it's so much quicker then blogging. I will track you down :) x

  5. Ooh Mrs H, I love your posts! A visual feast ...

    That wallpaper is gorgeous, so pretty and summery and what lovely finds!

    I agree with Anna, lovely, lovely, lovely!

    Love Claire xxx

  6. Lovely finds those green buttons are yummy ... Sarah x
