Finally had a bit of a "day off" today, by that I mean I didnt have to work at my business but I still had to do work around the house..
When you have a hundred year old house
you dont really get time off
because I am SURE it has a life of its own and continues to grow and change without me doing a thing to it
after bashing the inside corner of the roof of the family room to shut the possoms up who have suddenly realised its spring and obviously feel their own sap rising...
I started picking and putting
and worked my way into the girls rooms..
threw the feather quilts into the Lloyd loom trunk at the end of the bed..
put the heavy winter jackets into the suitcases on top of the wardrobe..
(see that basket chandelier.. that was in my own room when I was but a wee child. Mum let me take it with me when she sold the family home ~ my chandelier obsession started VERY young...)
Then I shook out and hung up the super fluffy lace infested mosquito net ~ our pond is full of wrigglers, soon they will have wings..
but ran out of steam by the time I got to the dressing table..
I mean just how many flavoured chap sticks does a 10 year old need??
So this is the cluttered dressing table shot..
Then onto the next bedroom...
Remember these tissue poms made by Tamarah and Matt?
Well this is where some of the multitudes ended up..
On my most favourite windows in the house
I REALLY want to decorate this room
but my teen wont let me
I have the sads about that
But I have sneaked a few things in ... antique bed, day bed and quilt for one
And I mean you gotta have an Axminster on the floor to keep the draughts out.
I had other plans
but my Teen wont let me
