Tidy Space, tidy mind...
Oh at last!!! I found a few hours to actually tidy my room..and you have NO IDEA what a relief it is..it was a midden! I have been so busy for so long, that things have just mounted up, and as a Virgo, I find this very stressful, but generally..when I have to choose, I go for tidiness and perfection in work rather than in what I need for me. So..this is just the nicest treat, and I can at last see my desk...I had forgotten it was there! I have posted the picture here and have added notes, so you can see things in more detail should you wish. (This is the desk in my bedroom by the way).
Maria has asked us to post some of our favourite bought pieces of art work...and due to lack of light (as usual!) I can't get any good pics today (some delicious Japanese Woodblock prints will follow though!)...but in the one above, you can see the big abstract on wood sitting on my radiator (done by my bro and rescued by me last time there was a clear out!) which is about to be hung behind my bed on the dark pinky plummy purple wall there. The metallic tones in this (car spray-paint) look great in the room, and I am looking forward to a change anyway!
So, I had a busy weekend....It was Mothers Day here yesterday, so that was fun (the house now is scented with more than 100 daffodils!), and I went into town to do a bit of shopping...and got (shock horror!) a pair of jeans! You see, this is the first pair of trousers I have had in about a year..so I am very pleased with myself! I did however just ignore the current trend for skinny jeans (ahem..not likely) and got very baggy cropped turn up jeans, very comfy and casual. I also got a vintage dress from Copenhagen that I am turning into a skirt. Oh yes, and don't forget the four hour tidy up marathon! Also Scotland is now smoke free in public places (pubs, restaurants, clubs), courtesy of the smoking ban..so that is a big (good) change too. As I said..busy weekend! Hope yours was good too... xox
PS..all you lovelies waiting for orders will hopefully be pleased to hear they will ALL be ready to go out this week (by thursday!)....yay :)...I will drop everyone an email as well! xx
