Mr Built Us A Bathroom


Before
Mr and I have been in this house for 3.5 years. My priority was the bathroom. Somehow we managed to to start on the exterior: Paving the driveway, re-cladding the house, new front door, gates and new turf and plants.  Meanwhile the toilet leaked, the shower curtain was sticking to us as we showered in the draughty room, the vanity shelves and drawers had collapsed from water damage, Mr couldn't see himself on the mirror (it was positioned low under the window) and well, that pink whale spout and rambling rose feature tile!



The Brief
I was after a 'vintage modern' bathroom. I wanted it to be modest and in keeping with the era of the home (50s).

The Plan (& Source List)
We had to change the layout as the mirror had to be higher. We had no storage previously so we wanted lots of it. We had little paper cut outs of each element and did every possible layout scenario - then at the last minute we changed our mind again. We joined the separate toilet with the main bathroom. I wanted the bath to have breathing space.



The New Bathroom - Ta da!

My Second Mother's Day









  

Mother's Day. I feel honoured to be part of this crew called Mothers. I always felt this day was a day to buy your mum something to thank her for everything she does for you. This year my viewed changed.  As a new mum, it was a day to celebrate how fortunate I feel to have been graced with a delightful little person who lights up our lives. To be able to call myself a mum. Her mum.

The Gathered Store by Little Gatherer



 

 




 






 

 


 
 
When my favourite blog for all things lovely for little ones called to ask me to photograph campaign images for their new store, I jumped at the chance!  Little Gatherer launched The Gathered Store just before Christmas here and the Telkiddo bags made super cute Santa sacks. The images created were made into banners for their facebook page and webstore and also as product images, instagram posts and lots, lots more.

Homely Creatures




 

 
 

 I was beyond exited to work with Homely Creatures on their new knitted mountain and cloud cushions.  I couldn't think of anything better to style with than their classic bear and fawn cushions and chunky felt petal bunting.  These images were the result. Thanks to My Friend Fred for the beautiful tent frame.  I have since spotted the images I created in Issue 63 of Frankie in the kids directory and on the Homely Creatures homepage.
