Home Etc #115

Home Etc

I keep coming to the conclusion that unless I get off my peaches and tackle all this home stuff, unsurprisingly it’s never going to get done. And then I start a project, get all excited and then go off the idea of work quite quickly. The current focus is a very small revamp of our home office. It was the first major project we tackled when we moved in, back in the summer of 2014.

I wasn’t really blogging back then and definitely hadn’t discovered the amazing Instagram accounts out there are who are showcasing their beautiful homes at every turn. The problem is now I want to keep changing things. All. The. Time. Which is neither good for my sanity or purse. But a new candle here, a change of notepad there. That’s not too bad is it?

When I’ve finished this little potter in our office, all will be revealed. Until then…


Thank you so much to everyone who joined in last week and engaged over on Twitter! Our favourite from last week was the absolute divine discovery from Steph at Life at 139a of the beautiful home and garden shop at Snape Maltings. I would definitely spend all my pennies there!

    Thanks for the mention – and it was a very lovely place which I’ll clearly need to go back to, I’m not sure my resolve will be as strong next time! X
