Hammer and Nails

Get me a hammer and nails, I want to hang me some things on those bare walls there!

Five and a half years we've been living in our lovely old Victorian house, slowly working our way through a very, very long list of must-do renovations, and now there are rooms that are finally finished and it is well and truly time to start the beautifying process.  The adding.  The layering.  The "this is us" bits.

Even the bathroom was in on the action of getting something on the walls.

That feels better already.  I've not shared much of our house because who wants to see photos like the one below?!!  Ahhhh, the joys of renovating, and here we are in Winter with breezes sliding through the house from all directions!!

Sometimes I just ignore it all and walk into a finished room.  Sometimes it's important for your sanity to be in denial of what's going on around you ... don't you think?

Have a fabulous week.


  1. So envious that you have finished rooms. My whole house seemd to be in a state of "renovation".

  2. One day Midge you'll look back and say "remember when we were living in renovation-chaos?"!!!

  3. Wow that is quite a lot of work going - but the finished rooms look really good - must be good to go in to them and know that will be the whole house soon(ish hopefully!!)

  4. Trudy - you should put some of your beautiful photos on your walls.


Thanks so much for leaving me a message!!
I love reading what you have to say : -)
