Things you will find around my home

Favourite mugs in the kitchen, red of course!

New to me jam pot from the boot, just £1

Love this metal stand which I have painted cream.I will show you when I have given it a second coat, I love it! Cost just £2 also from the boot!

A close up of a very pretty oil painting, just £4, guess where from?

These live on my bedroom window sill.

Made myself a bag to hold just a fraction of my yarn stash.

A snippet of my dresser which I would love to paint cream, but as we had it handmade I don't think I can persuade hubby at the mo.Lets just say he doesn't always see my 'vision'!

Saving the best till last, I was lucky enough to win this BEAUTIFUL print from Sam at

a HUGE THANK YOU to you, I love it. Sam sent this to me a while ago and I was hoping I would have it framed by now.Trouble is we are redecorating downnstairs and I haven't decided which room to have it in, decisions decisions!

See you soon

I do love a bit of red too and your metal shelf...I have one too and I too are in the process of painting it. I paid a fair bit more for mine though! lol.
Love the print.

Ohhh, I just found you via Little Secrets from my garden. How lovely to have found a fellow red enthusiast. We have just made over our kitchen and it is now red with white and baby blue accessories.
Looking forward to reading more of your blog.
