How pretty are these? Not sure about what colour to put on the floor in front of the fireplace...I wish they had a tile with similar colouring like the mustard in the background but sadly they dont. We have to pick carpet this weeked as well...wow...now I feel like its really happening! I just wish I was feeling better than I do now, this cold isnt feeling too good...migrains, runny nose, cough...oh well I suppose I will get there. Have a great day. xo

What would you choose??? I have been recommended to go for one 1mt by 1mt square but I don't think its enough as its a big room so I want to put at least two in to make it nice and bright. The other thing I have on my mind is, is square set too modern for me??? Help please!!! Opinions would be greatly appreciated.

Look at the work on this amazing handpainted French bureau...
beauty and function...
I dont think I could ask for anything else in this piece do you?
Even the back is handpainted...WOW! I think its unbelievable...even if the back is a back which doesnt get seen its still complete.
Sadly I wont be seeing much of this piece, its off into storage as soon as its picked up from the lovely Samantha over at Shoestring Splendors Treasures who is one of the sweetest ladys on eBay with the BEST treasures eva!!! If you dont know of Sam please do head on over and check out her items as they are simply stunning! A special thank you to Sam for letting me use her lovely photos.
Now I do hope I can keep my end of the deal that was made with my husband...its asking a lot isnt it??? How do you stop yourself from buying beautiful pieces when you know you shouldnt be?
Have a great weekend.

This was my very first set of paintings I bought from Gail...a fair few years ago now! I love how she used the old ceiling tin look frames!
And this one was when I was more of the blue girl and didn't has much pink in the house at all. Gail used a photo a jug I had in my collection at the time...didn't it turn out lovely?
And I can remember bidding for this one on eBay...it was a Friday evening and it was dinner night at my Mother and Father in laws house as I can remember sitting in the hallway on my husbands laptop waiting to put my last minute bid in lol. Isn't it funny what you remember at times?
So sorry guys, these ones are keepers now and wont be listed on eBay...I think they work really well with the cream french furniture and the soft blue fabrics which I just love! I love falling in love with things all over again. Do you have something in your collection that you have just taken for granted? Maybe its time to pull them out and fall in love with them all over again!

If you haven't noticed I'm loving the old timeworn creamy yellowed pieces.
And the little old Italian cherubs are always a winner in my eyes.
Hope you have a great weekend.

On another note my little man was excepted into the school swimming squad and asked to compete in the 50mtr butterfly, we were so excited for him! Sadly he developed a infection in his eye the past few weeks and was told by the doctor that he was to stop swimming till it cleared up. Its been a nasty infection which has traveled into the colouring of Jake's eye and if it went any further it may have affected his eye sight so swimming has been put on hold till further notice.
Hope you all have a lovely weekend and take care until next time.
