Sale shopping

I perused the internet for various sale items that were needed ( I don't intend on braving the shops for most of January!).  One of the things I want to do in January is clear out and decorate eldest son's bedroom whilst he is away travelling.  Although he won't care either way, I treated him (well, me!) to some gorgeous Orla Kiely bed linen.  I will photograph it once it is in his completely transformed bedroom (must take a before picture of said pit/bedroom).  What got me most excited was the boxes the bed linen came in.  What great storage.  As I oohed and aahed whilst filling them with various bits and pieces I was told by middle son to "get a life", but you understand don't you?! x

  1. Absolutely, but if you could see where I was sitting right now you would not think I was an organised person. OK, maybe someone with aspirations to being organised...?

    Love the boxes. Is the linen in the same design? And yes, don't forget the 'before' photo - crucial. Jx

    1. You've started well... your kitchen looks extremely organised, so I'm sure the rest will follow. No linen not same design. I love that design but it wouldn't have gone with the blinds in his room. Will show you when it's done! x

  2. Saw your comment on Steph's blog. I make the mistletoe brooches and sold the one to Steph a few years back. I was reading and thinking how lovely she still wears it and then saw your question so I thought I'd pop over and say hello. Turns out you live just over the way from us as we're in South Norfolk.
