Ikea Love

We had a Friday night trip to IKEA the other night and picked up a rug and some fabulous fabrics for cushion cover making for our lounge..

The Gislev rug is an absolute bargain at £19.99 and some of the fabrics are as little as £1.99 a metre!

Secret Garden

On the way home after my friends wedding the other weekend in Chesterfield, we stopped at Hardwick Hall, one of the greatest Elizabethan Houses in the country..It was absolutely fabulous and a great way to enjoy the September sunshine wandering round the grounds after a tour of the house..I spotted this doorway and couldn't resist taking a snap with my hipstamatic made me think about a secret garden and took me back to my childhood! Lovely colour for the door as well..

goodbye Summer...hello Autumn..

My goodness..where has the summer gone?!

It's gone by in a flash, or at least it seems..

It has been a jam packed summer with all the usual weddings, anniversaries and birthdays as well as a house move thrown in...I've been busy with my house mate furnishing the house and doing D.I.Y and styling which has been great, including taking the lounge window out to get the sofa into the house! It was worth it believe me! :D

All of the Autumn Winter 2010 catalogues are now out and I've been having a lot of fun flicking through them all to see what exciting things are out there in the world of interiors...It's also been doubly exciting seeing shots I've styled for Next, Argos and Homebase in the catalogues as well..

Now onto the Spring Summer 2011 Argos catalogue!
