I love Mondays! {when its a bank holiday}

Today, finally we get to have a rest! Yesterday I was like the Tasmanian Devil, commencing battle on all the cleaning and painting jobs to do at home.
At last the shed is painted inside and out, and looking mighty fine, if I do say so myself. Its like a small house and the only problem with it is that every time I go in there, I suddenly feel very sleepy...something to do with the light maybe? I will have to sort out this problem, as the shed is meant to be a place for working not kipping in!
Waking up to a nice clean flat in nice clean bedclothes and tidy laundry is worth its weight in gold, and I spent this morning, whilst munching crumpets and slurping tea, re-arranging a few new things in frames...like these cutlery and old music papers.

Please excuse the bad quality photos, I'm using my pocket camera, but its not very good for indoor pics.
Do you remember those birds? They've been wrapped up in tissue for ages, I decided they might looks nice on this white stand.

It's funny when you move into a new place, you can't stop re-arranging things! Our flat is tiny, but everything seems to slot in somewhere, somehow.

Even Plimsoll, finds somewhere to slot in, usually in places that I want to keep clean and fur-free!

I also sorted out my desk, transferring a few things to the shed has freed-up a bit of study area indoors.
I will be showing you the shed soon by-the-way, when I get the SLR camera from work, I will try and take some better photos of it.

So, I suppose I should go and change out of my pyjamas now its midday!


  1. Goodluck with the new place. Already looks like home! I have done pretty much the same - diy tidying... back to work tomorrow. I too love bank holiday. Love the images x

  2. your house is looking gorgeous Artemis, so pretty. I love the carnations in glasses, and the way in a small house everything has to have a perfectly sized space to live.

  3. What a beautiful home you have. So light and airy! Really pretty!

  4. What a lovely home you have! I love those little birds!

  5. Love the framed cutlery! Such a simple idea, but so effective.

  6. I found your link on Tea for Joy... so happy to discover your very inspiring pages here! :)
    I´ll be back. Many greetings,
