Plaster Stencil

Choosing wallpaper for the bedroom has been a nightmare... Everything I liked cost an absolute fortune.. Anyway I wasnt willing to pay the prices... I decided on a no cost plaster wallpaper of my own... Everything needed here I own in my Jiggle Ma Wiggle Studio Shed :/ Plaster..Stencils, Masking Tape. Im not sure Im finished yet.. May add some more!!!

Im still in the Kitchen..

Since I bought my light box wall light I have been doing wee bits to the Kitchen.. I never realised how neglected the Kitchen had become.. I had taken off my pelmet jester bunting a while ago... I Still hadnt replaced it with anything moths later !!!!! I didnt want to hide any of the view I have..  My ideas were.. open shutters.. lots of hanging plants... another pelmet.... or a top shelf...

Light Box Lamp

I fell in love as soon as I seen this... Perfect little shelf lamp... Or it may change tomorrow.. into a perfect little wall light ..

Pure Mineral Oil

I have been oiling my oak worktops with vegetable oil, olive oil, chilli oil lol/ I read online that mineral oil is whats used on chopping boards, prep surfaces. The other oils dried up quite quickly leaving a really dull oak surface...  so we will see.... I thought I would take a wee picture or 3 of my kitchen unit all tidy and oiled :)

folky Duvet Cover

I found this gorgeous duvet cover in the charity shop yesterday in Hawick... It was £4.00.. Inspiration strikes... This is my new colour inspiration for the bedroom updo! Dont look at anything else nothing goes at the moment!
