Just a couple more housey pics!

I've been a bit quiet on the house front lately so thought I'd show a few snapshots. Here is Miss Computers new home although she hasnt moved in quite yet as we needed a new thingamijig to access the portable broadband, I'm sure she will be very happy living there!
This is in the living room, there is another shelf on the other side of the light, now I just have to decide what to put on them, months of living without my bits and bobs has got me very

this piccie was meant to be further down with the other light piccies, this for now is in the hall way but will eventually go into the downstairs cloakroom as I'm looking for new light for the hall, the hall hasnt been touched yet apart from removing the old wallpaper!

My favourite picture, it was one of my purchases from Laura Ashley when I worked there and its taken pride of place in my last 3 homes! You can just see mrs computer on the right currently balancing on a chest of drawers.

This light is in the family room, I'm going for a New England stlyle and thought this fitted perfectly, there is another light by the window but I've yet to find a fixture to comliment this!

This is in the front room, we just wallpapered the two walls either side of the chimney breast using Erin from LA (again) I have one of these lights again either side of the chimney breast and one on the oppposite wall (in earlier pic) they are from BHS and are supposed to have droplets on the top leafs but I thought it would look OTT so put the remianing ones on the light in the pic below!

Again this was a purchase from working at LA, it just had little glass flowers so the droplets went perfect.
Did anyone happen to see Kerry Katona on This Morning today? Talk about car crash TV, what was she on? She hasnt done herself any favours whatsover....silly girl! Is she trying to do a Britney?
Glorious sunshine here today, my boys are getting excited for tomorrows Halloween disco at school, I'm helping out both with decorating the hall and at the disco so it will be a busy day tomorrow. They also have a inset day this Fri before half term next week and the following Mon is also another inset day. Are your kiddies off next week? I know England and Scotland tend to have diffrent times to Wales.

Hello Claire,
The Munchkin is off next week, good and bad, no peace but maybe a lie-in and a few days away! They don't seem to be doing anything for Halloween at school.

I love the Erin pattern, I have the pinky curtains in that pattern in the spare room here. I bet you miss the LA staff discount!

oooh its all looking very elegant, can't believe how quickly its all getting done! I love laura ashley and bhs are brilliant for lighting aren't they?
Saw a clip of kerry katona earlier, crikey she was certainly on some strong 'medication' she sounded drunk! lets hope she can turn things around like Britney finally seems to have done, such a shame to see these pretty, talented girls falling to pieces in full view of everyone.

thanks for your message btw, my boys take after their dad..I'm definately the untidy one, they are always moaning about my 'stuff' everywhere! oops! x

We nearly bought that computer desk a few years ago, but we opted for the bigger one with doors on the bottom too, we have so much junk we need to hide! Tee hee.
The house is looking lovely.

Can you believe it was only back in the spring that we embarked on the hell that is house purchasing!

I'm loving the computer thingy for Miss computer to go in, it fab.
We're on the look out for yummy wooded book sheves, as we can't put anything up on the walls of our new place :( can you hear the sigh from Ben? lol
I turned one wall into a pin cushion here lol and he's happy that I can't do that in the new one.
Oh well I'm not fussed, i can find other places for pic's to go.
Have a fab weekend, lots of love

Oh Claire, I love seeing your house pictures. I love love love the wallpaper and your wall sconces are just amazing!!
BTW, the hydrangeas are macrophyllas and are called Nikko Blue. They start out in the summer as a pale white/pink and then slowly throughout Autumn they turn a deep pink and green.
