Hello there lovelies!
Now, I promised previously that I would bring you more news about my little flat (or The Granny Shack, as it has been affectionately renamed by Nicki.)
I love this little flat sooooo much and while it isn’t mine, it’s only rented, it’s the first time that I have lived completely on my own and I LOVE it! I was getting to the point that no matter how nice the houses were, house shares weren’t for me. I couldn’t get it out of my head that I still felt like a student living in one. I felt I really needed my own space to do with what I pleased. To be surrounded with just my stuff, no-one else’s, somewhere to make pretty and feel like home for me.
see completely surrounded by MY STUFF!
So I am going to give you a few little glimpses into The Granny Shack and what I have done to it so far. It’s still very much a work in progress and I have a whole heap of ideas that I’ve pinned on my “For the flat” Pinterest board but I like how it’s starting to look. There are some rooms that I’ve focused on more than others at this stage, namely the ones that visitors see! My bedroom had become a bit of a dumping/hiding the mess room until the other weekend when I finally got it semi sorted (just some furniture to acquire before I can start unpacking some of the boxes that I’ve hidden away in the very many wardrobes.)
I’m happy with how the living room is looking at the moment, again just a bit of furniture to get for that so I can have my crafty books displayed properly but it feels homely and more importantly it feels like me.
My sofa with The Blanket on it and my gorgeous Erin cushion. I made a slight Dottie Angel inspired wall with pictures and pompoms and the gorgeous tea towel sent to me from my IG buddie @jacci just had to be up there too!
I love that I have a dresser too. This is mainly filled with crafty bits and some more gorgeous prints (but I am going to do a separate post about Art Work around the Granny Shack and give full credit to all the lovely arty people I have discovered.)
I love having fresh flowers about the place. This is my favourite and my best jug and I love it to be paired with gorgeous flowers. Love this quote too (but that's for my art work post too.)
I have mainly focused my attention on the living room and the kitchen. I will show you a better glimpse of the kitchen when I am at home in daylight hours.
A few more tulips to add instant colour to my very white looking bedroom. I was very sad to discover that my latest Rob Ryan mug had the tiniest of chips in it. Once I noticed it I couldn't bring myself to use it so it can be a flower holder instead. I think it suits the tulips quite well.
I will be back with a few more flat snaps soon. I'm really loving making my flat a home and putting my own quirky stamps on it. I have a whole host of exciting ideas (Pinterest you have a lot to answer for) to inject into the space and am planning a rather exciting trip over the Easter holidays to pick up a few pieces for The Granny Shack.
Have a good day you lovely lot!
Love love love
