Same old same old

It's always the same.

The last day of the month looms, and with it the dreaded realisation that allthethingsilove has been sadly neglected.

'When are you going to do another post?', my four faithful followers ask!

And I do mean to get round to it, I do, really I do.

I read of bloggers who spend up to 60 hours a week on their blogs! (Perish the thought.) And I feel very intimidated by their diligence.

Somehow, just when I find a quiet moment to blog, I am always distracted...

After all, a good friend might ask me to tea...

Mr Nielson better known as Sid, might require my urgent attention...

Things around the house might demand some cocooning...

There may be travel plans afoot that can't do without my always last minute attention...

So, sorry to all four of you darlings but never fear, there are dreams being seeded right here in my head!

Catch the next wave...

Off the wall

I've had grand notions at the new improved Windyridge of wallpapering a room or two.

In fact, I left two rooms suitably unclad so that I could dress them in something 'cabbages and roses'- like.

In hopes of avoiding a possible twee-ness, I was leaning towards an Aerin Lauder style of feminine elegance.

Better still, I loved the cheery damask in the hallway above, just perfect for a small seaside hideaway.

Look closer, and you discover the sheer magic behind the patterned illusion.

Children's stickers assembled in a glorious damasked design!

The lovely Payton Turner is the creative force behind this ingenius concept.

'Each wallpaper pattern is made up of thousands of hand - applied stickers, and can be removed and re-applied in any space.'

If only we'd all held on to our sticker collections!
