... in what was originally the dining room, then D's ugly man-office, is now my craft room!
Want to see?
I started off painting it white but decided it just wasn't me. It was my daughter who said it should be bubblegum pink.
It's a real mix-match of Ikea storage and treasured bits.
I've still got a bit of titivating to do. That noticeboard needs updating and mounting on the wall above my desk and I'm missing some fairy lights.
But slowly, slowly I'm getting organised.
I can't tell you how delighted I am to have my precious yarn safely stored. I HATED having it dotted around the house in bulging bags.
I love, love, love being surrounded by my favourite things.
My wonderful pink cow print is by Tanya Palmer who was one of my very first bloggy friends. (Sadly, I can't find a link to her now. Are you out there Tanya?)
I bought this Tiffany-style glass lightshade on the afternoon of Princess Diana's funeral, sixteen years ago. Funny what you remember. It makes me think of her whenever I look at it.
My latest acquisition is this pretty thread catcher.
It's so clever. Weighted by it's little pouch, it sits over the arm of your chair and acts as a receptacle for all those pesky yarn ends (or, of course, pistachio shells and chocolate wrappers!).
I bought it from an extremely talented lady I've met on Instagram. You can see some more of her beautiful makes on her blog, www.daisymoon-mandy.blogspot.co.uk.
So, what do you think of my little room?
I keep popping in and twirling!
Right, now to start crafting again and the very first thing I'm going to make? A large sign saying 'No Smelly Boys Allowed'!
