Here we are, Friday again and we’re all anticipating the things we’ll do with an extra hour, let’s not worry about how early it will get dark.
Just a few things to share;
The first is the beautiful house we stayed in last weekend in Newcastle’s Gosforth area. Our pals have not long moved in to it and it is an absolute cracker. It was built in 1910 and has lots of original features left. You enter the house via the gorgeous and unusually shaped front door, then you’re hit by the wood panelling painted white – it really works. The floor in the hall and the other rooms downstairs is breathtaking too and when you look more closely you notice the inlaid detail round the edges. I was so inspired by the wooden hall that I have had (yet another) sanding floor company round today. Just cannot decide whether to go for dark or pale boards. Any advice gratefully received.
The other thing that strikes you about the house is the windows, so many bays with the original glazing. it was hard to capture how stunning they are and how huge!
Earthy was looking very seasonal today when I popped in, lovely to see the Halloween thing without hideousness (is that a word). I’ve never seen so many different types of pumpkins and squashes.
Lastly, there’s a new place to eat in Edinburgh and here’s the cover for the menu, designed collaboratively by two girls I know.
Remember to let me know whether you prefer dark or light wooden stripped floorboards, it’s beginning to get on my nerves that I cannot decide. Have a fabulous, autumnal weekend. xx
p.s. still no idea what the enamel item from yesterday is
This is the week I’m going to get the show back on the road with the regeneration and get organised with, well, everything. The running around to find the right sock will always happen, that’s for sure but I need to give myself more of a chance of finding it quickly. Organisation is going to be my new best friend, it will give me peace of mind and some of my time back.
Yesterday was a funny old day, the thing that made me smile was this gorgeous arrangement that my niece did using apples she had caught from the tree using her Bapa’s apple picking equipment. H and K spent ages with it, perfecting their technique and making my sister and me laugh and laugh. It’s a stick, with a net basically.
Instagram is just brilliant fun, isn’t it. I like the feeling of taking a quick snap and making it better by using the effects, in a matter of moments. It reminds me of the Polaroid camera I had many moons ago, but better, you had to take what you got with the instant print that popped out of the camera. The pictures today are all Instagram ones.
