Your Interior Style?

I thought I would do a little 'Giveaway'. I am not sure what exactly yet, perhaps a magazine, Country Living or Country Homes and Interiors, a luxury bar of chocolate, a packet of seeds, along with a couple of surprises...... all you need to do, to enter is leave a comment below, telling me what best describes your 'Home Interiors Style'. Here are a few examples Modern Country, Vintage, Vintage Country, Eclectic, Pretty, Contemporary or perhaps it is something else? The giveaway will end on Saturday 5th January at 6pm, and I will make the draw soon after that.....

Just a quick mention, I recently purchased this lovely Patchwork Lampshade from here...


I love the vibrant retro feel it has......
Have fun thinking up your style, just to join in, I would describe my style as 'eclectic with a country twist' when we lived in our small cottage it was definitely 'country cottage' but since moving (with all the same furniture) it now looks slightly different, if that makes sense...........

Embracing the New Year........a little!

I hope you have all enjoyed lovely Christmasses and great New Years. For me January is a time of reflection, reflecting on the year gone by and planning for the year ahead. I don't neccesarily set New Year resolutions, but try to set goals and aims that I would like to achieve throughout the year........I don't always manage it! This year my main aim is to LOSE WEIGHT, it is something I have needed to do for a long while, ignored for a long while! and now realise that I need to take action.. Today I have been sorting through my wardobe and am dismayed at the ammount of clothes that no longer fit, but also the fact, that I did wear them once, it seems such a long time ago. I have not thrown any out, apart from the really worn items, but have left them there as an incentive. One day I hope to wear them again. I am not setting out on a diet as such, but a lifestyle change, cutting out crisps, chocolate, too much bread, sugary drinks, cakes and biscuits etc etc and of course partaking in more exercise. My husband assures me if I keep to the eating plan and gradually build up the exercise, the weight should drop off, I hope he is right!!
I have also made a list of all the jobs that need doing around the house, started a big clearout and reorganised several rooms, with still a couple to do, this always freaks my husband out, as I can not do everything on my own, but he has promised if I lose the weight he will help with the bigger jobs.

Over the Christmas break I realised I have now been blogging a whole year, I would like to thank all my followers and readers for their kind comments and support over that time, and hope 2011 is as pleasurable as 2010 has been.

One last thing there are lots of REDUCTIONS over on the website , if you fancy a vintage bargain.

Have a great week............
