I'm just a copy cat....
Evening Ladies (and gentlemen if there are any!)
I have a confession, yes I'm just a copy cat. I visit your lovely blogs and get blog envy! So what was my plan this weekend...to paint 2 rooms (how ridiculous is that) and finish a round cushion like posies. (Except in a slightlier bodgier rushed way!)
Well got underway with the painting after yet again rushing too much and buying the wrong shade paint AND still painting with it even though I knew the colour was wrong. Then having a massive strop until Mr M bought me a new tin of paint in a much nicer shade rather than the one I bought that resembled the colour of my skin.!
So I now have a nicely painted bathroom in a sort of Mushroom colour with my pictures of little dogs on the walls (I had an idea that there would be a doggy theme in the bathroom)
I have been mulling over a posting that the lovely Thifty Mrs wrote recently about taking a step back from blogging and feeling like you have to have the same things to fit it. Well I feel like that too to some extent... I know what I like, but sometimes I'm overwhelmed by other peoples things , so that I end up feeling that my bits and bobs are not up to scratch. (I mean I'm trying my hardest to turn our 1960s terraced small house into Kate Winslets cottage from the holiday on a very small budget!)
I have always been influenced by other peoples things, I think that comes from being an only child in a way, way back when I used to get bedroom envy from my friends rooms (I has a purple bedroom with larva carpet, and really I wanted a pretty Laura Ashley bedroom!)
So anyway..here we are again, another week to come, with Spring on the way...and I hope you find yourselves well on this Sunday night...
I do love being apart of this blogland , even though I'm running about like a mad women with all my projects - you ladies are just too blooming inspiring xxx
Lots of love Sam and Silkie Sue
