Spring Cottage

Spring Cottage, where we now call home and since moving three weeks ago we've achieved a fair amount but it is without a doubt still work in progress. How about a look at what we've achieved so far?

Living room is waiting on a piece of furniture and those final finishing touches, pictures, vignettes, candles, it is after all what finishes a room........... And I know exactly what is going on that back wall you can see!

Office, I need an armchair in this space but otherwise I am ready to dress shelves with books and more. Perhaps now would be a good time to tell you that EVERY room was bright yellow and green or both! Including this room.

Bathroom, done! In this room we worked with what we have since a new suite is off the cards and I've impressed myself here. It's become a space I enjoy being in which surprise me.

Amongst all the hard work we've had time to enjoy. We've managed to host dinner for family and friends, enjoy our first BBQ, potter in the garden just as I imagined all those months ago. Pick plums from our tree, chase Bobby Cat around the house with a mouse or more accurately have Bobby Cat chase me around the house with a mouse! Wake up to complete silence and go to bed in darkness. Gardening until dusk, hearing the hoot hoot of owls................. It is safe to say, I am already utterly in love with our new home.

I'll try and keep you up to date as we reach more milestones, there's plenty more to do until it's finished and I've not even mentioned my workshop yet! x


  1. Your new home looks gorgeous, I want to live there myself, and your garden is magical! I have been in my home a year now and still have paint swatches making a mess of the kitchen wall! ;)

    1. Thank you, it's a dream come true. Remember it's only paint - you can change it if you don't like it, just jump on in and make a choice. If you need any advice, please shout! X
