1. Family Life Tile
My lovely friend ML, used to run a wedding planning business. During the course of her career she came across many cool wedding things but none more so, in my humble opinion, than this. All the pieces of our wedding day immortalised into ink to be cherished.
The wonderful people who produce these can be found here : Your Life Tile
2. Antique Typewriter
I don't think this really needs much explanation does it?
3. Print of J1's Feet
Obviously J1 can not stand down to mark his feet for us, so it is always been quite difficult to get good prints and we have tried on many occasions. But this one came home, quite randomly, from his after school club a few years ago and it took my breath away. Hence it was swiftly framed and wall mounted.
4. 'To Read' Shelf
Yes, these beautiful articles (i.e books) are all waiting patiently to be the next called upon for my reading pleasure. The bigger the pile gets the more excited I feel when I look at it. Which some might think is odd, but to me it makes perfect sense.
Recently I have been on the hunt for books from my childhood and was tickled pink when I found my absolute favourite 'Tilly's House' by Faith Jacques.
5. My Mantra
When I first decided I was going to give this writing thing a 'serious go' I had this made in Wales. And I think, not a truer word said, to be honest.
6. Bag Collection
I have certain places that are the holy grail of shops. If ever I am lucky enough, or save enough to visit and actually purchase (instead of looking forlornly into the window, wishing 'If Only') I try and keep the bag as immaculate as possible so I can worship it. Daily.
And finally, a room saying 'Me' wouldn't be complete without a Barbie representative. Past posts have already let out my secret. I have collectible Barbies (and proud of them!) but sadly most of them remain in storage. However, for now this is the Barbie Rep.
To some people this may seem sickly and self indulgent.
You know what?
I don't care.
I live in a house of boys, where blue rules and every other word / sound is burp / fart / poo (followed by much hilarious laughter - seriously do they ever get bored of it?)
So this is my space, my creative abode.
Maybe one day the front page of my publishing contract will grace the walls and my own books line the shelf.
And maybe dreams will come true?
