In a Shabby Chic stylee
I suppose it's pretty obvious by now what style of home I have. I like getting old furniture and stripping it back, then painting it, then sanding half of the paint off again! I love all things Cath Kidston and sort of old french.
We were out for lunch today. It was absolutely lovely. It felt a bit like winter and where we were had a lovely log burner on making it all cosy. The owner is French and lunch was a mix of French/Tahitian. It was a beautiful, with lovely friends and a lot of laughing.
Anyway, back to the point. When I got home I was full to the brim, sleepy and lazy. I had planned to go for a wee wander round the garden to see if there were any flowers I could photograph, then perhaps take a walk over the paddocks to say hello to Candy. She's settled in beautifully so I thought I could take her picture to let you all see. But after so much food and warmth all I wanted to do was snuggle up and basically not move again!
I decided that some photos of things in the house would have to do, basically anything that meant I didn't have to move much!
My peg bag, I use it all the time.
the last of the corn flowers and a shell we collected in Tonga last year ( we did declare it on our return to NZ)
More shells from Tonga, this time small clams. They are on a shelf in a cabinet I bought second hand and re-painted, sanded and messed around with.
And my work satchel
Ah the thrill of it all! I think I need to lie down again.
