Posy, one of my favourite blogs to read, does a section called 'On my mantlepiece' - I think (If she doesn't mind) I am going to do the same, as it is one area of the house that is easy to change, yet changes the living room completely. This is what it looks like at the moment.
The reflection in the mirror is of a lilac fluffy blanket and my son watching Superman (again!) i.e not where I have been all day - snuggled up on the sofa with a herb tea and Designer's Guild book - wishful thinking!
Despite the weather, the lorries arrived to take the timber away today. They have been working all day and have hardly dented the pile!
The day is very grey, green and brown - yuk - looking forward to some blue days!
