Finally a little bit of time to myself..Have enjoyed lying in bed and reading Selina Lake's new book Pretty Pastel Style which is a lovely book but not my favourite.I think Homespun style is more my thing.But it has reminded me how a mix of pastels can lift a room and I have also realised how much pastel enamelware I actually own and remembered my beautiful pink enamel kettle that is presently languishing in a box under the stairs and how you can change things so easily for example by swapping a cushion in your bedroom for one in your living room etc You don't have to keep buying new stuff.What you need or think you want is probably in your house already.I love all these images..so pretty..
I have always loved pink and have a few pieces of painted furniture in my house and shop.My current favourite colour combination and has been for some time is pale pink and turquoise...love it.
What to do now? The sun came out briefly and I was almost excited but it has now been replaced by the usual greyness that seems to be the norm at the moment.There were huge flakes of settling snow at five thirty this morning so the greyness is definitely an improvement.Cheryl and I have missed our jaunt to the car boot which has become our Sunday happy time.It was just too horrid this morning and the duvet too cosy so maybe next week...I am going to change the shop windows later today and try and inject a little bit of Selina styling into the upstairs room.I also have a yearning to go to Whitby for a ride out and a walk on the beach. I have a rotten cold and I think I need some sea air in my lungs Kill or cure!Maybe a bit of cake making later just what you need on a Sunday afternoon..
Whatever you do today enjoy your time and make the most of it .Much love Anne x
