Enjoy your week,
Saturday, October 17, 2009
While strolling along the high street, on the way to our weekly Mother and baby group, I regularly passed a shop that I liked the look of, but wouldn't dream of entering. At that time our furniture was practical, wipe clean and usually from Ikea. And that's how we liked it. But even then I had a hankering for all things vintage, aged and loved.
However, those were the days of roaming hands and impromptu tantrums and I figured it was best to keep walking for fear of the damage the munchkins might cause if we were to venture inside.
Now the kids are older, and I have discovered a whole new world of beautiful (and sometime even practical) things. So, my new favourite place is called Home and Colonial. It's always been there; it just seemed so out of place with my life back then but now...oooh, the possibilities!
While we're on the subject of new discoveries (kinda!) I am the proud recipient of a new award. This was given to me by the adorable Lacey from 'Inspired Lately?' Thank you Lacey, you made my week! Go check her out and tell her 'B' sent you!
Here are the rules of the "one lovely blog award"
1. Accept the award, post it on your blog together with the name of the person who has granted the award, and his or her blog link.
2. Pass the award to 15 other blogs that you’ve newly discovered.
3. Remember to contact the bloggers to let them know they have been chosen for this award.
So, 15 new discoveries who delight and inspire me......
