#Little House Happiness

If you follow me on Instagram, you may know, I have a hashtag, which I use when I post any photo from the little house, its #littlehousehappiness .... it sums up how I feel when I'm there, but it also sums up how I feel about my home in general.  Sometimes, because I call it "little house" I think it sounds like our main home must be some sort of mansion, it's really not lol, we live in a typical 3 bedroom semi detached house in suburbia.

For as long as I can remember though, I've loved looking at wallpaper samples, cushions and soft furnishings.  Even before I had a home of my own, I remember decorating my bedroom with Laura Ashley wallpaper in my parents home and when I think back, I can still see the the beautiful blue print.  For my 21st, while many young women may have asked for designer clothes or a car; I asked for wardrobes.  So as can you see, anything home related, really is my passion.

We've recently been rejuvenating our home, and I'm going to take this opportunity to share it with you more, through my blog.  How I'm achieving my dream home, will be through upcycling and careful shopping and this too, is a journey I'll share with you.  
I'm looking for cost effect design solutions and I'll share how I display and learn to re-style my decor.

Please don't think it will be only interiors, I'll still be sharing my week that was, and of course, you'll still find crafting, and project life.  I'm going even try sharing my learning curve of the Aga and recipes with you.  That just leaves me to do some "tinkering" with my blog layout, but of course, that's half the fun, isn't it, and also a possible name change.

  1. Eeek can't wait hopefully I'll pick up some tips as my home has its ok rooms and then things mismatched I buy things i like but then they don't really go and then other rooms lacking finishing off i.e pictures etc my bedroom and hall are the biggest culprits :-) p.s. my motivation has returned a little - kitchen drawers done now to tackle cupboards xxx

  2. Looking forward to more peeks inside your lovely home! I like the idea of upcycling - I'll be sharing (soon hopefully) an old wooden piece I found at a flea market; I think it must have been held tools or nails or something, but now it looks so good filled with my Powder Puff inks. :)

  4. I've always been the same. I loved dollshouses as my decorating fix before I really got going on my own house and I've decorated many a house to sell on too. I'm thinking about a big overhaul here now that what we need in our house is changing, so I'll be on the lookout for ideas
