I thought that it was way past time to create my own blog. This is no easy task, considering that i am a definite technophobic!!!

My children (and theirs) introduced me to the wonderful world of the internet and all that comes with it!! First google, then ebay, internet groups and blogs!! I have met so many wonderful, charming people that i now call friend. Please bear with me while i blunder and bluff my way through this, until i find my way. Which is how i have survived most of the daunting situations that i have landed myself in!!!

A little R and R...

A little rest.. now some restoration.....
A lot has happened since i was here last... I have recovered nicely from my surgery, had a much needed rest and best of all I am now a great grandmother.. His name is Bailey Maxwell Jones and he will be much loved and smothered by hugs and kisses by all, in this huge loony family...
I might not have blogged, but I have kept up to date with all thats been happening in blogland... I have also kept my finger on the pulse on ebay! OOPS no,,, that was the buy button! .. hehe... seriously... I have added some more pieces to fill some of my houses. Some were a bargain, some I just couldn't live without..
The Lines DH/D is coming along nicely. Some of you will remember it from the post  fate... and fancy...
This was before the new paintwork was antiqued and distressed...
and before the shutters were added.
The shutters I copied from an original.
Window bay and front door with its original lion doorknocker.
The ring was missing so this one was from a piece of jewellry.
It's only 2 rooms but it looks very cosy when it's filled..
The pink wallpaper I bought from america..
This wallpaper came from england.. thanks Lizzie.
I decided to use vintage wallpapers that are of the same vintage as the house. I did consider using replica triang papers, but as I had these in my collection, it was an easy decision.. I must say I am happy with the end result.. now for curtains and furnishings, thats next time!!

Real glass in the windows and suitably distressed..
now just waiting for occupants...
It's so nice to be back talking to you.. I don't know why I put it off for so long... well my coffee's getting cold and the garden is calling, but I'll be back soon! promise ..

Lots of Love
