My Perfect Home

So you know that perfect white space people think I live in ?

My dining room is also my work space.  Seriously need to get hubby to build me a shed or something in the garden.  I am sorting stock for two vintage fairs this weekend but its proving a bit overwhelming at the moment. 

Hopefully some order will be restored soon and I can post an “after” pic.

    It still looks better than mine AND I'm not even preparing for a fair. You have very high standards. Good luck with the fairs. Once the lovely products are sold, the room will be heaven.

      thank you Ipshita, somebody at school told me today that they saw the pic and that it looked like I had "styled" the room !

    You call that mess??? Pah!Mind you, I think you need a little gorjus shed thing to be creative in. Maybe one of those lovely little shepherd huts or Romany caravans. Pretty sure a man of Mr Jones' caliber could knock you one up out of pallet wood. x

I'd love your comment
