Day 14 #myhousethismonth - Glassware Nestled in amongst the books we have some bottle lights which are horrendous to photograph but look quite magical; like the BFG's Dream Jars (I like to think). #glassware#ginbottles#shrinetogin#bottlelights#bfg#dreamjars

Day 12 #myhousethismonth - New Colour We weren't happy with Day 3's photo, and as Honda taught me in the early-noughties : Hate Something, Change Something, Make Something Better.

Day 11 #myhousethismonth - Mirror Mirror Mirror mirror on the wall, didn't have to think on this at all as this is the only mirror we have that's worth photographing at the moment. Must give mirrors greater consideration. #mirrormirror#roundmirror#porthole@tkmaxx#edwardianhouse#terracedhouse#ourfirsthouse#housetohome#homeofourown#shoestringstyle#notminamalistic#myhouseinjanuary

Day 9 #myhousethismonth - Botanical Daydream. Our main bathroom has a lot of plants in. I've crowded them together for the photo though. The aloe normally lives on top of the toilet, the bamboos live on the windowsill, the spider plant (that I grew from a baby after plucking it from it's mother plant at work) lives on top of the wall cabinet, and the ones on the floor are normally by the sink. For bonus points I've also strategically placed my kindle in its new jungle cover. #botanicaldaydream#plants#houseplants#indoorplants#bathroomplants#edwardianhouse#terracedhouse#ourfirsthouse#housetohome#homeofourown#shoestringstyle#notminamalistic#myhouseinjanuary#howihome

Day 8 #myhousethismonth - Begins With W: "World Travel". Here's our collection of travel books for places we've been and places we're going (bar a couple out on loan). To the left is a cork globe my sister got me to pin destinations. We will be adding Paris and Peru this year. #beginswithw#worldtravel#travelbooks#travelguides#wanderlust#edwardianhouse#terracedhouse#ourfirsthouse#housetohome#homeofourown#shoestringstyle#notminamalistic#myhouseinjanuary

Day 7 #myhousethismonth - Get Organised. We had a couple of these sets of small drawers from ikea that didn't match and weren't all that pretty. They're only tucked away in the cupboard under the stairs but a coat of blackboard paint and writing on the contents has made them so much more aesthetically pleasing (if still not exactly pretty) and it's a lot easier to find what you want! #getorganised#whatyougonnadowithallthatjunk#ikeaatmine#ikeamoppe#ikeamoppehack#blackboardpaint#cupboardunderthestairs#practicalnotpretty#myhouseinjanuary

Day 5 #myhousethismonth - Most Used Room: "Downstairs". There's a lot still to do in this room... We took 2 weeks of work when we got the keys to crack on with things but the walls and ceiling in here were pink and it took so many coats of white just to cover it up we never left this room. All naive notions of how long everything would take went straight out of the window. . *Christmas decorations are coming down today *I've been looking for a new rug for ages as this one is too small and too beige for in here. There is a frontrunner but I haven't committed to the purchase just yet. *We're also looking for a new chair or even a small 2nd sofa to divide the living room/dining room space. *There's no window covering at all at the back yet (fortunately it's not overlooked), i keep forgetting about it.. *I'm desperate to replace the purple curtains we have hanging in the bay window but really want shutters long term so am reluctant to invest in nicer curtains short term as it seems a waste of money. .*This weekend we want to paint the dining room fire surround and we're planning on carrying the 'hare' colour below the dado rail up both chimney breasts. I really wish we had a picture rail instead! *We need to decide what artwork etc we want to put up on the walls and have a few things that need framing. *You've also got a sneaky peak into the kitchen here, which needs replacing too... *And that upright lamp behind the chair belonged to my grandmother and needs a new shade.I had my eye on one from Oliver Bonas but it's now sold out. *I also want some new cushions to refresh the sofa. *And finally, we need an electrician to sort out some lighting issues but that extends to elsewhere, and there are sockets etc we may also want fitting so I'm waiting until we have a full list. . Better get on with it all... #roomforimprovement#listaslongasyourarm#everythingincludingthekitchensink#3monthsin#bettergetonwithit#edwardianhouse#terracedhouse#ourfirsthouse#housetohome#homeofourown#shoestringstyle#notminamalistic#myhouseinjanuary

Day 4 #myhousethismonth - Feet Up Friday. I wanted to take a picture of the socks I got for my birthday. This is the first time I've worn them and it seemed like the perfect occasion but taking this photo was so hard without fancy equipment or a helping hand and I couldn't fit anything else in. Ah well, I tried! Rest assured this is at home. #feetupfriday#itriedmybest#harrypotter#dobby#dobbyisafreeelf#societyfortheprotectionofelfishwelfare#masterhasgivendobbyasock#socks#honeydukes#pickett#jkrowling#jimkay#prisonerofazkaban#sorryitsblurry#toogeeky#myhouseinjanuary
