A burst pipe for Christmas.

It was just a normal Wednesday evening I was just finishing up my last order in my workroom  when I heard an awful sound, gushing water inside my walls.  I just stood still, then it started raining on me. Water started to pour out my chandeliers, sheets of water poured down my walls,  the electricity started to flicker.. A burst pipe in the attic was the culprit. I stayed up all night to clean the water off floors and to wash and dry rugs. The walls will take months to dry out.
Looks nice huh? But on closer inspection (scroll down)

The ceilings look nice and white in the picture but they have big huge criss cross yellowing patterns where the water ran through all the beams...


Every wall and ceiling in the house needs to be sealed and painted,  wallpaper stripped and redone.. Bloody nightmare...

Lagom...

Not too little, Not too much. Just right.

20th Century Beithcraft sideboard....Beautiful
First it was walnut..



 Then it was Navy with some new additions.....



Then off white..


Hallway Fairy Lights...

Another obsession and I am sure I am repeating myself with this one!!! I have had the fairy light obsession a few times over the last few years.. I have four sets in this one area and a 5 way adapter hiding under the wooden trunk in a basket.. I love lights4fun they have really beautiful well made lights, brighter than any other ones I have used. The Lantern on the fireplace was a lamp, I didnt like it lit so I took out the internal fitting and replaced it with micro fairy lights they are so easy to manipulate with their bendy wire and the result is like fireflies in a jar :) The Large wicker star I bought from TKMAXX and I wrapped some pearl fairy lights around it. I always buy the soft warm white lights not the bright white which I think have a touch of blue!

From Singapore To Selkirk..

Dearest Mae, Thank you for being such a lovely customer. :) I received this beautiful little card and note this morning. ....You have made my day...

Another massive Thank you for writing the best ever feedback on my Etsy shop..

This is probably the most difficult review I have ever had to write on Etsy. Do I say that this pouch is unique? No, that would be an utter understatement. Do I say that this pouch is quirky? No, this pouch is beyond quirky. So, I will just say it as it is. One afternoon, I came across this pouch while browsing Etsy. And I thought, "I need this pouch in my life." Into the shopping cart it went, and into my mailbox it arrived; in less than a week - across the world - from Selkirk to Singapore. I didn't even need a pouch in the first place. But just looking at it makes my day. Every day. Even on the crappiest day. This pouch is handmade with magic. 100 Stars. ありがとう、Sharon…

A Humble Kitchen

My wee space... Its so nice having all my wall sockets redone...  I have a lovely aroma of pumkin spice circulating too... Aw I love my wee humble home...





Brushed Steel Switched Sockets.

My Kitchen sockets were looking really tired.. Even after cleaning they looked tatty.. They were also yellowing with age.

I really like the copper switched sockets.. After looking at prices and debating whether copper was a keeper.. I decided on a cheaper more neutral metal.. The brushed steel..
