....a green living organism. Show us a 'plant' in your space today.
This morning we got the bus into hitchin to go buy some ribbon, a bit more blanket wool, and some calico to make place mats and napkins. So this afternoon I will be sewing :)
And i've still not done any scrapping.
BUT we did a major move in the house yesterday. We swapped the lounge and the dining room around!
Stuarts mom had some furniture made many many years ago, very big yellow wood furniture designed to go in South African houses which are all pretty big, well we have LOADS of room in Africa for big houses!
Stus brother, John, was given the furniture when he got married and slowly but surely over the last 8 years the furniture has all landed up in our house. Now don't get me wrong I have never minded, in fact quite the opposite, I have longed to have it all as I really love it! But it's big, have I mentioned that?? lol.
So on Saturday we got a call from John to ask us if we wanted the dining room table (I think it's the last piece!) and of course I said yes! He dropped it off on Sunday morning. BUT it's very big, haha, and there was no way it was fitting into our dining room, along with the tea trolley, dresser, wooden carpenters chest, and our big fridge (which doesn't fit in the kitchen!)
So we swapped rooms and I tell you we should have done it like this the day we moved in! What a difference it makes to the house. The lounge is now cosy and the dining room is a proper place to sit and have family meals!
Thank goodness we had Stu and Callum for the heavy lifting and it gave me a chance to hoover in all the corners, YIKES!
Right I am off to take pics of my new dining room, and get my sewing head on.
Have a great day!
