Day of Lovely things....

A while ago I purchased a lovely Cath Kidston Hand Made Lampshade from http://www.ziakoko.co.uk/, this oh so lovely thing has been hinden under my bed as I could not find the right base to put it onto.... oh but today that has all come to an end and here it is in all its glory...









Looks lovely in my kitchen....don;t you think ???


I have today visited B & Q to get some gloss so that my husband can start to gloss the lounge before he paints the walls, and whilst I was there I had a quick look around at the wallpapers to see if I could find something nice and pretty to go into our bedroom, once we start decorating it..... oh and look at the beauty I have found...









Wooooow weeeee....

Its from the 'Monsoon' home range and I love it.....

I also found some really sweet little felt heart tree decorations in Pink and Blue and so I have got a couple of blue ones as I have two friends in the cul-de-sac that I live in who have had baby boys recently and so I am going to attach them to cards and give them as '1st Christmas' tree decorations.....

Tomorrow is my baby's birthday, Mason is 1............where oh where has that year gone, it only feels like yesturday that he was born........I can't beleive how quickly the time seems to go, scary really.....

We are going to a local Pizza Hut for tea tomorrow with my mum and dad and my husbands mum, Mason does not really know whats going on and as my other two's boys birthdays were only in August and October we have had enough of parties at home......plus it give them another treat....

I am so excited about the swop, I have already been tinkering in my craft cupboard, and looking for lovely ideas.......

Hope you all have great weekends....

Your lamp looks delightful :)

I too have seen that wallpaper, and have a generous sample at home :)

Well we are Shabby Chic twins, everything you love, I love too. Favourite colours have to be baby pink and blue and yes I love vintage, have no allergies and love florals.

I am going to keep your swap under the tree and be a good girl, might have a feel though LOL

Please please dont go to too much trouble, I have done little swaps before and it really is so exciting when you get your special something through the post, that whats inside is secondary, its such a lovely feeling to know that someone has made or bought these little things for you, I have been known to have a little cry

Happy Birthday M, have a lovely day X

Would love to e mail you, can i through your blog, I shall have a quick look now

Have a hopefully, relaxing weekend

What a gorgeous lamp and the wallpaper is beautiful! How funny my baby (who's now 5 ) is Mason too, his middle name is Tiger after Tiger Woods (hubby's idol) he used to go to nursery with a boy also called Mason and his middle name was Tyler...lol. Dont suppose your other two are called Max and Louie by any chance....lol! Claire x

Happy birthday Mason

I know how you feel my little one has just turned three and it only seem's like a couple of week's ago that I bought him home from the hospital.
I love that little lamp and the wall paper is Just devine.
