After a busy weekend I'm feeling very much under the weather and today wasn't the best day I have to say. I just wanted to say thank you to few blogger friends and customers which recently contacted me about people copying my personalised pictures. Initially I spent about an hour writing a post with photos about it, but it only left me more annoyed and negative so I decided not to post anything. Just maybe a tiny note for anyone who is lazier on their creative side...there is a huge difference between being inspired and just simply copying. But no more of that...
Have a great evening! and tomorrow will be a good day:)

I can't believe October is almost gone and winter is just around the corner....We have a busy weekend ahead of us, and although it will be great to go to a party, dinner and seeing friends I feel like snuggling up on a sofa with a good book and hot chocolate. What about you? are you doing anything exciting?

A. has half term so I have been trying to come up with different projects for her, and one of them was to create a little autumn decoration. We did this leaf one together (last photo) couple of years ago ( it used to be our annual tradition with my sister when we were kids) but this year I wanted try something different. Very simple, you can use different colours or shapes. We used rowan red berries, paper and elastic transparent string ( not sure what's the correct name). Anya loved it and  only pricked her finger once at the end ( she is 3). 

how not to paint furniture

After purchasing sideboard on Ebay and then finding out it's much darker then expected, basically dark orange instead of light oak, had also been damaged and scratched I decided to paint it grey. Me being impatient and indecisive ( after  looking at Farrow & Ball paint chart for 2 hours) I decided to mix paint myself. So base - white ( Farrow& Ball) and ivory ( Crown) + numerous amount of paint samples from F&B and Fired Earth. I simply mixed together all I had, it wasn't that simple:) and tadaa...not bad at all:) As the cabinet was already bashed quite a bit on edges I created sort of shabby chic look by sanding corners and left cracks and holes as there were. So after being conned and buying solid oak sideboard and ending up with orange soft wood cabinet  I'm very pleased with the result. What do you think? I also painted these silver candlesticks - matt black, much nicer.

this autumn? I normally stick to my uniform of navy, beige, white and black but this year I really enjoy wearing little pops of colour, especially in shoes. I bought red and mustard ones the other day, and love it...What about you? do you have a certain "uniform" or style which you stick to or are there any changes in your wardrobe this autumn?
