Have you ever had one of those days that you make a cup of tea...then get distracted and your cuppa goes cold? I have had one of those days.
This morning it was overcast, chilly and misty. That's fine when the mist burns off and we have a glorious sunny winters day, where we can work away in the garden - my job of yesterday was pruning roses - but today it has stayed overcast and miserable. This, combined with a not so great sleep as our little chick has gone into a big-girls bed, I am having a tea-drinking day. Coffee is my pleasure, but tea is my soother. :-)
So my day today has been spent playing with my little chicklette - who after a terrible nights sleep since perfectly happy - and trying to make tea.
In a stolen moment, I decided to go in hunt of some inspiration. I seriously want to paint our family room and kitchen, but being Winter it is just too cold right now. So I am stockpiling my inspirational photos...the lovely doesn't know what hits him when I pull my photos out and say "can we do this",...but here comes another batch my dear!
There are a couple of sites that I have discovered in my vast travels around the world, courtesy of the internet, that I just LOVE. One of the sites is a shop in Sweden, http://www.gruvgatan13.se/ You don't need to read Swedish to enjoy the beautiful imagery.
Another gorgeous site is http://nordingarden.blogspot.com/. Sigh.
There really is something about the crisp white, the rustic earthy elements, timber....the list goes on. I just love this style.
And one of my absolute favourite sites at the moment http://mylovelythings.blogspot.com/
We are going to need alot of white...what I would really love to do too, is paint our skirtings and door frames etc white. That is a bigger battle, and perhaps one that can be taken up after the first stage is completed.
Have a great afternoon,
