The Hall part 2
So, there you have it, the final colour choice for the hall was the dark one. All day at work on Thursday I was worried that I had made a dreadful decision and that I would get home to something I could not live with. Gladly, that was not the case but I do kind of wish I had a shinier finish than this very matt one which only has 5% sheen. As you can see, it really catches the light none the less. Out of all the decisions, this is the one I have agonised over the most, thanks to everyone who listened, you’ll be glad it’s done too, I will stop going on about it, I promise. C and I have spent far too long analysing the floor and whether it has a pinkish hue in the artificial light of the evening. Now we need to get real, look forward to it looking a little less new; with our gang that won’t take long. Once the woodwork is painted it will look amazing, it spoils it having yellowy skirting at the moment but, we’ll get there. (one day)
We have started putting the study/music room back together and so far, so good. The skirting has been done to the best of my ability, not sure how I kept managing to paint the floor too. Luckily it wiped right off, phew.
(Nearly)Birthday Girl’s Party
I thought you might like a wee peek at the scene before H’s guests arrived for her party, the back room looked great with the bunting and balloons, not sure if you can make out the ‘Happy Birthday’ on the window above the table. That feeling of anticipation before the event is brilliant, isn’t it.
Kiss the Fish came along with decopatch creatures to be decorated with lots of brilliant choices of paper, check out the before and after shots. Everyone loved doing the painting and sticking, the googly eyes and glitter are always the highlight of the decoration process. Sadly, Kiss the Fish does not have a studio any more but they pop up at craft fairs and lots of other events round Edinburgh and I would highly recommend the party, Rhona has it down to a fine art, excuse the pun.
Well, that’s another weekend gone. December is here and the countdown to the Festive season is upon us again. Not long until the decorations are up and the house feels extra special. We’ve only spotted one tree up so far, bet that will change over the next few days, let the sparkly season commence, yay! x
Fourteen – The cake
Before decoration, looking like Mr Hollywood would approve….
Don’t think even Mary could find something to praise about this.
This post is for my lovely friend, Sarah who has an amazing cake repertoire, check this out for cake action, The View from the Table Macmillan. Now, that’s how to do it.
