Celebrate the small things

Well, I'm sorry I kind of 'disappeared' online again . . . it wasn't planned, it just sort of happened! I have been spending a lot of my free time over the last couple of weeks decorating and up-cycling a few pieces of furniture. I have to say I am very pleased with the results too!

Then, last weekend, we suddenly decided it would be a great idea to paint the kitchen. The cream paintwork was looking a bit tired and in real need of a refresh. So, did we simply dig out the old tin of paint from the shed and slap it on? Nope. We headed for the DIY store and chose . . . . a vibrant raspberry. Quite a change and I was unsure to start with but now I love it! It is warm and cosing and if nothing else, quite festive! What do you think?

This weekend I am going to try and get a bit of Christmas shopping done and probably the only writing that will happen is in some Christmas cards! How are your Christmas preparations going? Can you believe it's December already?

Happy weekend everyone.

Thanks to Lexa and her lovely co-hosts

  1. I think your kitchen is giving you the raspberry.
    Shopping all done! Now I can just relax.

  2. It's good to decorate once in a while, the results look great.
    I have done my Christmas shopping. What I did was buy my children and grandchildren a card and put the cash inside which will duly be sent off by special delivery.

  3. Christmas all done for me. Kitchen will sure brighten any day

  4. I love doing artistic projects! They're so fulfilling, right? Yours look awesome -- big improvement! Have a lovely weekend! :)

  5. I like that colour in your kitchen - very vibrant and really sets off your white kitchen furniture. I too am returning to the blogosphere to Celebrate - life can get so very busy :) Special Teaching at Pempi’s Palace

  6. Hi Annalisa - well that's so cheery ... and what a lovely colour - everything looks fresh and so cheerful ... enjoy the shopping and card writing ... good to get it done ...

    Cheers Hilary

  7. So pretty! The up-cycled furniture looks fab, and that raspberry shade is simply perfect for your kitchen. Also, best of luck with your Christmas shopping! I'm mostly done with mine, but trying to find good greeting cards has been a chore, I must admit. LOL.

  8. I love the colour of your kitchen - it's no fun refreshing the old colour anyway :-)

  9. What a bold choice - but I love it! Christmas preparations are moving along nicely here, but I haven't given any thought yet to food.

  10. Thanks everyone! I do really love the raspberry colour now!
    Thanks for visiting.

  11. Love the color! I've got some furniture that needs to be refinished. I'm afraid to start.
