Crowning Glory: @storyofmyhome. My pineapple 🍍 tops. The one on the left is over a year old. On the right, about 4 months. The big one is getting too big for the pot. Was thinking about re-planting into the ground because it supposed to still have another year of growth before it will bear fruit. Really leery about it considering this winter is coming. Decided I’m gonna wait until the spring to replant. Which means I will be carting all my cactuses and succulents in to my home for the winter. Worried about the lack of light in there though. You’re always worried about something, huh? Bon Lundi mes amies. #storyofmyhome @jackdmarch @hardcastletowers @thegingerhareofyorkshire @the_yorkshire_homestead @negi.at.home @myinteriorsquares #myinteriorsquares @housetohomestyling @dotty.about.design @no.7_is_home @catwalktocowpat #pineappletops#winter#durham#nc#chezjones#dayinalife
Back home from a lovely few days in Wales, and we got stuck straight into doing a few snagging DIY jobs around the house like putting up these new bedside lights. Love how this room is coming together 💕
• Weighted Blanket • Update on the benefits of a weighted blanket. As you may know I got this bargain blanket from @oxfamgb a couple of weeks ago. I’ve been sleeping with it each night and have slept extremely well ever since. The weight of it makes you feel secure and safe and has a soothing effect. My nights have been solid unbroken sleep and I wake up feeling refreshed. I’ve also had a couple of afternoons with anxiety and panic feelings and have got under my blanket to relax and calm. So as far as I’m concerned they’re a positive 👍🏻. There is the flip side where my husband doesn’t like the feel of it at all and feels claustrophobic so i suppose you have to think wether you enjoy being hugged and cuddled in the first place 😂 #decor#design#charityshops#bargains#budget#houselove#skipfind#paint#paper#makeover#garden#interiors#cheshire#behindthedoorof84#thrifting#therapy#sandbach#wallpaper#plants#storyofmyhome#greathomestaketime#nesttoimpress#mycreativeinterior#therapy#recycle#neonsign#velvetcushions#weightedblanket#anxiety#panic
I don't know if I'll ever tire of gallery walls. And these Ikea picture ledges make them so easy - there's so much opportunity to mix things up and move things around at will, with none of the faff of drilling holes or tacking nails in the wrong place. Can you tell I've been there, done that, got the unwanted holes in my walls to prove it? This current display has evolved to include quite a few bird designs, quite by accident - perfect for today's #myhousethismonth - Day 16 - #animalmagic. I love how they sit alongside geometric designs, typography and a signed print from an amazing @rae_morris gig last year in Manchester. They should go on paper, but it kind of works, don't you think?
Our little Bella had a bad start to life and it was so lucky that we spotted her, a tiny bedraggled little scrap of a kitten just big enough to sit in your hand - after she’d been abandoned in the field next to our old house. Since that day 14 years ago she’s been living in high cotton & loving her life! We think it was animal magic that brought her to us even though the early days were an expensive round of visits to the vet. She such a funny little thing and much prefers to stay indoors where I think she feels safe. This past 6 months have stressed her slightly as she doesn’t like strangers in the house (I think she barely tolerates family at times!) and while the builders are in she usually takes herself upstairs until they leave. You can almost hear the sigh of relief when they leave.. 🐾 Day 16 @storyofmyhome living in high cotton @myhousethismonth animal magic #septemberchallenge#storyofmyhome#livinginhighcotton#myhousethismonth#animalmagic#wefoundakitten#sherulesthehouse#familypet#myhomevibe#lovelylife#spoiledcat#howwehome#myhappyhome
I am here to inspire, to be inspired and most of all have fun. For the last 7 Days, I have seen this happen for me. I made so many new friends and had lots of conversations. I hit the 1,000 milestone over the weekend. During this time, we all waited to see my first ever fall dinning table scape that was achieved with items I already had in my house. Three amazing ladies put together table scapes that inspired what you see here and I am sharing them and their amazing table scapes in my stories. So after waiting all week, I present to you in all its glory my 🍁 Fall 2019 Dinning Table Scape 🍁. I dedicate this to my 9-year old twin girls who helped me a lot in putting this together. Their addition of the cute little squirrel was a HIT. In their honour, I am sharing this with my favourite twins on Instagram -- Jodie & Julie for #thedesigntwinslovefall. Wishing you all a fruitful and productive week. What goals will you like to smash this week?
