Rooms are always evolving in my house. Objects move from room to room, walls change colour, furniture comes and goes, new and old, loved and betrayed. Every piece destined for a wall, corner, nook or cranny to sit comfortably in the audience of a house that is home. A home that is loud of laughter and music, bulging with love, passion, thoughts and emotions. It's exciting, it's creative, it's the centre of my world..........
One day I was reading Jody's cheery 'Lemon Rhodes' blog about her 'Little Yellow Wardrobe' project, here and immediately I felt enthused, filing the 'yellow wardrobe project' under 'Y' in the right side of my brain. As spontaneous as I am, it's no like I immediately ran out and started scouring the second hand furniture shops for an old wardrobe......A week later I found one, sitting on the footpath outside my neighbours house, it couldn't be 'free please take me', no way. How could I be that lucky?.........
Then I found this...Sooooo excited, just as excited as the day I found my Tahitian beauty
This beautiful Sampler (and example for a good life) was embroidered back in the forties. I love it unconditionally. And this beautifully dressed couple look so happy, I think they are in love..
Hi me taking the picture. Retro globes and a cheeky Eames children's poster.
I made a gingham curtain which covers the back of the mirror.

Hi little cheeky man, the world is yours!
Seems like I have lost the before's and middle's of my wardrobe renovation, but you can see the side of it here.
Happy weekend, stay warm. I'll be cuddled up in my sort of poncho! And I'll be listening to a bit of this and loads of this legend
