Hope you all had a lovely Xmas and New Year!
Just a few photos of things I really like at the moment! The first is the frosted faux ivy and eucalyptus wreath that my mum bought me in The White Company sale. It's half price at the moment, and I love it. It has a very light frosted effect, and it's a decent size. I like simple wreaths made of foliage, so I think I'll leave it undecorated and plain.
The second thing I love is the vintage letter 'S' on my mantlepiece. It's really chunky and is pale grey and chrome. It even still lights up if you want it too. I love old advertising letters and this was quite reasonable for £15. There were other letters made out of the same stuff and I was so tempted to buy more, even though they weren't my initials! But my post Xmas bank account wouldn't allow it!!
Next I really am pleased with my new radiator shelf! The OH rested an old leftover piece of Victorian marble we had in the shed onto the radiator behind my new sofa, and lo and behold I have an instant shelf! It's a good place to put my cup of tea, and the cats love sitting on it too! It doesn't block much heat, as I've left enough room for the air to circulate still. An added bonus is that it hides the top of my ugly radiator, which was paint splattered and hideous.
Lastly, I was lucky enough to get an ipad mini for a joint birthday and Xmas present from my family, and it's brilliant. I read every night on the Kindle app, and am forever downloading free books to read off Amazon. The two cameras are quite good, the second one is 5 megapixels, which is fine for taking quick photos. I love all the magazines you can get from the US, like Romantic Homes that you can't get here.
I also love the oilcloth case I got on Amazon, made by Tuff luv. I really wanted an oilcloth case, with an elastic band that holds it shut, and Cath Kidston hasn't made one yet for the mini ipad!
