Happy Easter everyone! Easter, for me is my favourite time of year, even more so than Christmas. It's full of hope and everything to look forward to, not to mention copious amounts of chocolate!
Today we've off to my parents to have a huge Sunday roast. My brother and his wife are coming from London to enjoy the day too. This is the first time we've all spent a day together for a long time, so it's something I'm looking forward to.
Over the last few days I've been busy decorating the hall, landing and stairs - what a task...I've painted it in Farrow and Ball - Parma Grey (which is actually more blue than grey).
Now it's finished I can add the finishing touches. Whilst in Liberty's last week I saw a great idea. They had fabric displayed in embroidery hoops hanging from the ceiling.
Keen to capture the idea, I added some of my Liberty fabric to 3 different sized hoops, sewed on some pretty buttons to 2 of them, and have hung them up on the wall. Hanging from the ceiling would annoy me after a while! So simple, and cheap to do too. Sorry about the photo's, the light is terrible at the moment.
When in London for Jack's birthday we popped into the V & A and I bought a poster which up to now has been rolled up. This now proudly hangs on the stairwell.
My ultimate finishing off piece is a patchwork curtain for the front door using 1930's repro fabric........I'll share that with you on my next post!
Have a fantastic day and see you anon.
