Oh To Be a Ladyeeeee in New York!

Did anyone happen to see the Little Britain sketch the other week with Emily singing with Sting....brilliant!! This brings me to the below picture, I love it so much, it goes perfectly in my bedroom. The lady is very Sophia Loren looking, very stylish and of course it has the NY detail in the back ground! It's from BHS af all places, I first saw it a few weeks ago but didnt like the price, plus it had a mark on the frame, a couple of days later my aunty and uncle were in there as there was a 20% weekend, now my aunty is brilliant to go shopping with as she will always get a bargain, they got it down to half price due to the mark on the frame, then when they went to pay, the staff couldnt find the code so used another picture which was cheaper then still gave them 20% off so it was a HUUUGE bargain!! Yippeee!! By the way, my uncle did a brill job on hiding the mark on the frame....thankyou!!
A cosy view of my side of the bed, as I'm the only 'ladyeee' in the house, our bedroom is verly femanine, the wallpaper you can just see in the below pic has gorgeous butterflys over it. We've wallpapered the one wall behind the bed and the chimney breast opposite it, the other two walls are a gorgeous pink. When my 9 year old first saw it, he said, 'poor Steve' (his stepdad)!

Just a few details from the bathroom, I'm not happy with colour blue above the tongue and groove but have yet to find a colour I like, now I've added the below pic, I have to say that the marks on the dado look like dust but honestly its the paint needing another coat!!!

I've now started adding my bits and bobs to the shelves from a previous post!!

Ta ta for now.....claire xx

It's all looking lovely Claire, don't worry about the small things like the colour of the bathroom, it'll all sort itself out, and you don't have to make every decision immediately. It's just a bit of paint, easy to change. Love the bedroom too, very romantic and chic.


MaryPoppins said...

Love your blog. Came upon you late this evening or should I say early moring...oh gosh it's 1:30 AM.
Your blog caught my eye because of Serendipity. My hubby and I are gong to the big Apple in a couple of weeks to celebrate our 20th. It's just a hop, skip and a jump from here (are you drooling yet?lol)
I will think of you when we have our ice cream at the Serendipity Ice Cream Parlor. It's one of many stops of my list. Second...can you believe that I made secret reservations in the Crystal Room at Tavern on the Green??. I'm soooo excited. shhh it's a surprise.
Keep up the great blogging
Hugs from Canada
