By 'the little things' I don't mean Squidge :) However, if all goes to plan you will be seeing a lot more of him on here :) That aside - my home is FAR from being finished, tidy or perfect - life when you have a baby I'm afraid - but there are little touches throughout the house that I really like - so as much as I'm not showing any photo's of complete rooms, here's some of the little things from around my home that I really like :) One day, we'll be in a bigger house and I'll be able to style it how I like it, and less cluttered!
After seeing this lovely phone on The Black Pearl Blog and knowing we needed a new phone, we bought this from Flamingo Gifts - our digital cordless phones have always been useless, whether we've spent lots of money on them or bought cheap ones, they've all been naff - so we decided to go back to a hard-wired phone and thought this retro phone was perfect. The colour is more of a darker green than in the picture.
Some nesting dishes I picked up from Next ages ago - we use the biggest dish to keep our keys in
The lamp from my old desk, before we turned our spare room into a nursery - this we bought from IKEA
We recently realised that we didn't have a clock in the lounge, annoying! So when I was in Sainsburys last I picked this up.
Years ago our inlaws went on holiday (can't remember where) and they brought this back for us - it's so pretty. I have it hanging from the curtain rail in the lounge just by the stairs, it's so pretty when the sun catches it
I also have bunting up around the house - this is the set in the lounge (I bought it on eBay), I have another set conservatory and a set in the nursery
The lamp in Squidge's nursery - so cute! It's really been catching his eye recently, he loves looking at the little owls
For a LONG time I've been obsessed with sun, moon, star print and years ago before she passed away, my mum bought this for me for a birthday - I've had it up every since :) (it's china)
We have a set of shelves in the bedroom with pretty iron brackets - I like to dangle choice pieces of jewellery from them :)
On top of the shelf I keep my perfumes amongst other things. Another present my lovely in-laws bought was this little witch, she's been dangling off shelves ever since :)
On top of our wardrobe, our soft toys (out of Squidge's reach!) - pride of place is Totoro, my Sooty puppet that I've had for 30+ years and other cherished teddy's
My bedside cabinet - a mixture of skincare, nail polish, jewellery and baby toys :)
I've always thought our oven is pretty - the dials at least. I love dressing up the front of it with pretty hand towels and dishcloths
Cute oven gloves
Despite being underwatered, this plant is very close to my heart. It's a money tree - years ago my mum took a cutting from another money plant and grew 3 small new ones. After she passed away, my step dad gave me one of those plants. It was tiny when he gave it to me, and now it's grown into a big flourishing plant - I just need to remember to water it!
So there's a sneak peek into little elements of my home, maybe one day I'll share the rest, if I ever get it to a stage that I'm happy with!
