At home...

21 Sep 2012

 








 





We have been spending lots of time at home this week, trying to get into a new routine of school. Elizabeth started full days on Wednesday. She's still full of excitement about going in every morning which is lovely and comes home with lots of creations from her day. I feel like I'm constantly clock watching at the moment though so as to not be late!

I have been trying to get some more decorating in the house finished . After trying many tester pots of various colours for the bedroom... I opted for white - with just a little mustard strip. Now I Just need to get some wallpaper up!

♥ Archie boy
♥ Leaves for crafting
♥ Elizabeth's treasure box - a summer project for school
♥ Paints and wallpaper for the bedroom
♥ Webs in the garden
♥ Masterpieces from school
♥ New scrap-booking supplies - badges from here.

♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥
 
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend. xx

    1. Thank you, I kind of felt like I should use some colour after moving from our rented all white house but after trying lots out I decided I really like white! Hopefully the yellow stripe adds a bit of colour. xx

    1. Thanks Heather. She is bringing lots of modelling home lately, I love hearing what they are meant to be. Not sure what to do with them all though, I figured if I photograph them it wouldn't be so bad that the bigger ones end up back in the recycling! xx

    2. Photos are a great way of affirming them in their creativity- while also ushering their creations kerbside! I try to have a 'gallery' space: when it's full, my girls choose which of their artworks it's time to recycle, to make room for new creations...
