Hello again, this is much sooner than I expected, but I have had a very nice request to see more photos of the room I have been sprucing up, and due to my scant knowledge of all things blog,this is the only way I could do what I wanted to do. So here they are with a few of the other rooms in the long thin house that fit under the heading of shabby - navian !
Firstly the newly spruced sitting room. The vintage flower paintings are left over from a previous decorating scheme, and the I made the heart picture above the sofa from vintage French love letters and pages from an already broken French book from 1880 something,href="http://madebymim.files.wordpress.com/2012/04/20120424-165428jpg">;;
The next photos are of the piano room,which doubles as a computer room,I love using mirrors as decoration,and as this room can be dark they make good use of light from the window
The rest of the photos show the room at the back where we spend a lot of time, it has a wood burner and is home to my 'fledgling' collection of vintage birdcages, mostly French, also my collection of Emma Bridgewater ceramics, my homemade grainsack cushions and embroidered Jan Constantine cushions, so it is a very eclectic mix, but definitely erring towards shabby!
This last photo is of our front porch door and should be in with the first photos, but as I said scant knowledge and all that, the photos on the wall are actually my Dad when he was a nipper, I love them. />;;
I hope you enjoyed the photos, things tend to change quite regularly here, but the shabbiness is constant, I think it's in my blood, speak soon
