Window Shopping

Work has finally started on our house, which is a massive relief after waiting 3 months since our burst pipe for work to start. But its a bit daunting as you never quite know what you are going to find when you get home. I am hoping that most of the messy plastering stuff should be finished this week and then they will move onto decorating.

I just can't wait to see it finished and to have my house back. The hardest thing at the moment is storage as most of the rooms have been effected its quite difficult to clear out every room and find somewhere to put everything.

I am desperate to have some creative time and really want to make some new things for our newly refurbished house, but sadly due to lack storage I don't think I will be able to find a space to work in for a few weeks. But I might go shopping for curtain material for our bedroom tomorrow, just need to decide on a colour scheme first.

So in the meantime I have been doing a bit of window shopping, so here are some beautiful things I would love for my new house. (I think I need a lottery win!)

This illustration by the very lovely Sue Bulmer would look great in my kitchen, I also love her range of tea related illustrations.

I am a big fan of lino printing and this is one of my favourite Folksy shops. This print is by Zebedee Lino Print by Zoe Badger, she has so many gorgeous designs it was a bit of a struggle to decide which one to show.

I've been a fan of Lush Designs for a few years now and one of their red fox lampshades takes pride of place in my dining room. I am loving their cream lampshade designs, its a bit more subtle than the one I have. In fact I love all of their range, especially these vegetable napkins.

I have loved these bird by Hannah Turner Ceramics for a while now and I think 3 or 4 on shelf would look lovely on a shelf in my living room.
