Corners of my home
I have to be honest, and say that at present there aren't many corners of my home that I would want to share with anyone! - However, a couple of you have shown an interest, and so I thought I would do a weekly 'Corners of my Home' feature. We moved to this house in December 2006 and lets just say that I think the previous owner had been watching too much 'Changing Rooms' in the early 1990's - Our house is a myriad of terracotta, purple, green and aquamarine (sometimes used altogether!) - We do however always sit down as a family for every meal, and the dining room colour scheme was putting us off our food, so this was the first room we tackled - The shelves you can see on the picture are one of my favourite spots, as they hold lots of different family pics, none of the frames match, but they kind of all go together. We painted the fireplace white, which turned out really well, and above it, there is a large venetian mirror - you can just see in the reflection, that we have a black and white canvas of me and Hubby - the photograph is one taken in Summer 2006 by a professional photographer, when I appeared in a 7 page feature in 'Pregnancy and Birth' magazine. I hope you have enjoyed this peek inside my home - as I love looking at all your homes!
I have spent the morning wallpapering today (more about that in my next post), so this evening I will be taking it easy, with my feet up, doing a spot of knitting. I am making this jacket for myself - On the pattern it is fastened with a kilt pin, and the lady in the wool shop had made one with little beads dangling from it which was quite pretty, but I have another idea for fastening this jacket - hopefully it won't take me long to finish it - We are having a weeks holiday at the end of May, and I want to have it finished for then - my mum is probably laughing at this, as my knitting usually takes ages, not because I'm slow, but because I usually put it down and forget about it for ages, usually, if its something I am knitting Georgia, by the time I pick it up again, it no longer fits!
Hope you have all had a good weekend - Natalie x
