I just can't believe that it is coming up to the anniversary of spending a year in our house! This time last year we were totally stressed about Solicitors and moving but oh, it was worth all of it to have our own little house, in our own little piece of England.

Our house hasn't changed too much since we moved in, however we have turned it from a plain white box into a homely, white box. Though we are yet to add any colour to our walls (it is high on our to do list), we have added character to our house in other ways.

A few months ago I made a little blind for our kitchen window. Although I am proud of my handiwork, it is a stationary blind and the Mr doesn't really approve, so it seems that I will now be on a mission to find a new blind for the kitchen.

I may have fallen a little bit in love with this gorgeous Bambi print which is a Disney and VELUX collaboration (available from Though I know someone small would approve of having the character from his favourite Disney film adorning our kitchen window, I don't think the big one would be persuaded!

Elsewhere, we have been making little updates here and there. We finally got around to getting a floor lamp for the living room, however none of us are happy with the emergency lampshade we bought! We are on a serious hunt for something grey and skinny! This gorgeous hare lampshade (available at is just downright perfect don't you think!

I am sure there will be plenty more things that we will add to our house, we have so many plans and though the house already feels like home, I am sure that feeling with only grow. Here's to many more happy years in our little abode!

It's so lovely adding all these little homely touches to your very own home isn't it? It's just 8 months since we moved into ours and the novelty still hasn't worn off. I often feel a bit like I'm playing house like I used to when I was a little girl! I love the blind you made for the kitchen, lovely and bright and fresh.
