Around here lately: Surfing the inter-webs08:07:00
It would seem that a little money fairy has been very kind to us of late which is fantastic as it means that finally i might be able to get a few decorating ideas off the bat to pretty up this house a bit.
The first one that has been in my head for ages is to finally put up a couple of shelves on the wall behind the TV.
I really want to, well need to put up some pics of the family, especially the kids and also to get some nice prints and bits and bobs to liven the mix. Im thnking something along the lines of these...
I think I like the idea of a miss match of frames with both black and white and colour pictures in them. I am also thinking I might just stick with black, a few white and some silver frames, and maybe a few bigger prints not necessarily in frames. I like to mix it up a bit you see. A bit of colour, a bit messy but nice on the eyes. What do you think?
The following couple of pictures are what I have in mind for my vintage mirror collection. I am on the hunt for a couple more so that Ill have 5-6 in total. You can see my latest purchase here on Instagram.
I have also been loving the two following online linen shops as I am thinking that after three years the bedroom quilting situation needs an over-haul. With toddlers and every other room at the mercy of their dirty hands and mess, I think I deserve one sanctuary in the house that looks awesome. So my bedroom it is!
Look at this cool collection of pillow cases. I may have purchased those pineapple covers in yellow and they make me happy just looking at them on the ironing pile. I just need a quilt cover now to match.
Green and yellow all in one. My two favourite colours. This is certainly a very pretty cover, but I don't think it'll match my pineapple pillowcases too well.
They always have good sales on cushions and quilt covers too so you should go and check it out.
I have also found some crafting inspiration at Down That Little Lane with this lovely piece of work
I have an embroidery ring in the sewing box left over from a previous mobile project and I thought this might be a good one to have a crack at. Now Ill set the record straight here and say that I would never rip off anyones excellent skills or work and claim it as my own, so I think for my attempt at this, I will have a farm theme going on with a little John Deere tractor and a couple of cows. HHmmmm....I better get cracking as this baby growing in my belly is not going to wait for anyone. Watch this space.
How about that 'and' decoration for awesome. I could make that!!! Could be a goer on the picture shelf just bling things up a bit. I saw this on a new blog I stumbled upon called Sugar and Cloth.
Remember I told you last week I wasting a lot of time on Pinterest and online shopping? Well now you can all see what I have been scouring the inter webs for. It really is excellent escapism for me, it builds upon my already existing procrastination skills and heck, its fun. A girl is allowed to dream.
Know of any online linen shops I should be checking out?
Should I have one colour frames or mix it up for the picture/ shelf idea?
Ill be lost on the internet somewhere in the meantime searching for some glam, pretty prints for the shelf and sourcing some blingy sequin stuff for that &. (What do you actually call that thing anyway?) You can check out some of my ideas on Pinterest.
Doing anything 'decorative' in your house at the moment?
