Five months into our new house, we still haven’t unpacked all the boxes. There’s still loads to be done, home-improvement-wise – but that’s just it. It’s starting to feel like a home. It’s even starting to look like one, too.
I love the colour on these walls. It’s Plascon’s Pear Fantasy.
The Fiance and I spent Sunday hanging pictures. After his mom dropped off these black and white block mounts that she’d gotten for his birthday. They went up in our passage.
We also hung the picture that my sister-in-law brought back for us from her trip to Vietnam.
We’ve started on our dining room Instagram wall. I bought these block mounts for The Fiance’s birthday. More coming soon.
We even hung a mirror. I’m still looking for a Welsh dresser to go in this space – somewhere to store/display my masses of blue and white crockery and crap. And then that’s it. No more buying furniture. No space left for it!
Other things I’m obsessed with?
Cheeseboards. I don’t even use them, but I want ALL the cheeseboards. I have this plan of hanging them and creating a display above my kitchen window.
Roses. The ones in my garden and on my front verge have been blooming their faces off. I have purple, red, coral and white ones. I want ALL THE COLOURS now.
Succulents. Big, fat juicy succulents. Can’t stop thinking about them. Even pulled my car over to the side of the road the other day, and raided someone’s succulent garden. Into my lunchbox. I also currently have cuttings from a spiky-spiky cactus rolling around on the floor of my car. Waiting to be planted this weekend.
