Springtime windows

It’s not raining! In fact it’s a beautiful spring day. So inspired by the sun light, I’ve gone about brightening up the windows on the landing in The Glen House.

White tea light lanterns with glass panels sit beside some stunning lemon coloured roses. The light gleams through the panels and the vase, throwing some much-needed light onto the stairs. Nestled in front of the vase are two cute wooden owls.

A beautiful wooden boat sits in the corner window, softly lit by a small table lamp.

Some Hyacinths sit alongside some old ceramic jars, I can’t wait for the smell…. (Rubbish photos must buy camera)!

A wonderful Christmas present sits on the bottom landing window;the carved wooden heart candle holder with a glass vase inside spreads the light both day and night.

Roll on the stretch in the evenings!

The start of the Spring Clean!

Happy February 1st! Ok, let’s be honest it’s frickin’ horrible outside. There’s rain, gale force winds, more rain, the dreary lack of light, did I mention the rain? I feel like Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz, any second now the house is going to be swept up and blown away. Oh and the river is getting nearer and nearer the house as it rises…

On a happier note, January is over, Christmas was ages ago and therefore Spring must be on the way! Time to give the house a freshen up, introduce some new ideas and look forward to some brighter, lighter days ahead.

I bought a large slate heart a few months ago, it hangs above the Rayburn. It’s great to scribble happy messages on! So when I found these mini slate hearts (reduced in the sale) a few weeks ago I had to have them.

I love being able to write little messages in chalk….

Back to the freshen up; the kitchen needs to be sparkly and light, so having these pretty glasses on display help catch the light.

image

Hidden behind them are these little scallop shells (yes, the scallops happily made it to my belly).

image

The shutters in front of the kitchen sink have been thrown open to let the light in, and the area dressed with light warm colours.

Tulips in a fabulous Easter yellow add some Spring greenery along side a tagine (thank you for the Christmas present), an old fashion milk urn thingy, a herb board and a cute clock!

image

All finished off with a twinkly heart….

Roll on the spring!
