Come on in

A little sneak peek of my little house, as promised, but please be aware I have done no tidying or styling of pictures because if I had really done that these photos would never have come so please take us as you find us, so come in, I'll put the kettle on x


I love my Orla Kiely crock pot, I could finally get rid of the plastic brown bin that found itself residing on our worktop but if I moved it it just didn't get used so now we are back to recycling and composting.
I'm embarrassed if you look closer about the hideous football bowl, but we all have the odd ugly thing slip in, right?  I couldn't banish everything hubby owned....



Hanging from the doorknob on the right is little R's race for life medal.  He got pushed, ran and toddled his way around 5km this Sunday and between him and his Mormor raised over £300.  I was due  to do it with them but had double booked with my VW festival (more on that tomorrow.) In case there are those out there who don't know but Mormor is Danish for Mum's mum, and as I am half Danish that's what my Mum is to him.



There seems to be a lot of blue and white in our house doesn't there?






 trying to capture the gallery of family photos on our stairs is proving difficult, will try again. Its an ongoing project and I have at least another 30 to go up, but the only time we have for diy is when R's asleep and that is not the best time to start hammering.

 a rare splash of red with this cheap Ikea rug but it feels very seasidey to me. One of my very favourite pieces of art in the house is the print in the bathroom by Australian artist Beci Orpin, I saw it a few years ago on someone elses blog and just had to have it. Its so Scandinavian.


My small collection of Dala horses on the landing, I have quite a few others dotted around......and a couple of paintings by Sasha Harding, a good friend and most probably my favourite living artist. We do have 5 of hers, I just can't stop.....they definitely make me smile.

A very untidy little ones bedroom, but to be honest its not often very tidy so hey ho, maybe I should have tidied it for you. Its only going to get worse isn't it???




 I start off well with perfectly placed items but things just get shoved where there's a spare bit of shelf at the end of a busy day.


So thats a little peek, I will post some more when I get another sunny day as it really is a dark house, well not an awful lot of natural light xx
Any questions about where anything might be from I can answer in the next post. I'm sorry I just don't have the time to reply to each comment individually, much as i would LOVE to, and love your comments xxx

looks lovely... and, I can't believe it, but we have that ugly football bowl, too. Except Ryan doesn't even LIKE football, he just doesn't like throwing things away ;)

one word....jealous! :)

Abigail, I think the bowl was a freebie from kelloggs, or a collect tokens thing...do those things still happen, collect 8 tokens for a bowl??? X
