Welcome to my world .......

Hiya everyone. How are we all?? did we all survive the half term holidays hehehe.

The other day a bloggy friend of mine (Libbie) invited us into her home to take a looksy round her bedroom ( in the hope that we would do the same because she's just toooo nosey hehehe). So in an effort to make this blog a bit more about me and my life and in an effort to satisfy Libbie's curiosity lol I thought i'd share a few pic's that I snapped this afternoon of my bedroom .... uncut ..... unedited and unstyled .....
.....because you know what, nobodys perfect, nobody's life is perfect and nobodys home is as perfect as we'd sometimes like to think here in blogland.

So welcome to my bedroom.... oh but please don't trip over the laundry basket on the way in hehehe..........




We live in quite a small two bed semi and don't have the luxury of a laundry room ( oh how I would love to have one of those lol) so clothes airers and baskets of laundry are a familiar sight in our bedroom







and as much as I try to keep things tidy and looking nice we always end up having to use top's of wardrobes as storage for things and a king size duvet on a double bed neatly disguises my handbag collection that's lurking underneath hehehe




but I do love to have my pretty things around me.......











I just want to stop there a minute and show you the beautiful blocks that I received from the very talented Annie over at birdcages and butterflies in my Christmas swap parcel. I do love them very much.




Right just a little bit more to show then I must be off.....







So there we are, a little snippet of my world. I do hope I didn't bore you lol
and I do hope you will join me and show a little bit of your home's ......


uncut...unedited and unstyled...



Speak to you all again soon


(((hugs)))

You have a lovely home! I think it's the little 'untidy' bits that make a house a home! No one can live in a dollshouse (although wouldn't that be wonderful!) Snap on the laundry basket!!!!

Well I think your bedroom is charming. I love that you did an unstaged, find me as I am post. It is what makes a house a home. If everything was always perfect it would be quite an unhappy home. DAre I show you my house?????? Hmm, maybe when the builders have finished and I don't have the contents of the office in my bedroom. Heehee.

YEah! I LOVED IT! You are too funny! But seriously how cute! That big wardrobe is gorgeous! I do have to ask....what is your Cabbage Patch Doll's name? MIne was Amanda :)

That laundry basket is so cute too!!! My bed is OFTEN covered in a pile of clothes to put away even though we have a laundry room. I hate that pile always messing up my room!

Your room was spotless! Even how you had the bed made! Unbelievable! YOu have a lucky husband. But I do MAKE the bed everyday if that counts for anything...but not like that! I guess I need some practice.

I love the wallpaper too. So pretty! Who knew we were forcing these men to live in all this prettiness! They love it :)

I better run Rocco is now all over the place too & I see him headed for the stairs. I did have fun!!! Thanks for the visit! P.S. I even loved the peek out the window!

It's all beautiful! I love your wallpaper, and the laundry basket is very sweet, and it was much tidier than my house and I have a washing machine that can wash up to 17 pairs of jeans at one time!

Your blocks are adorable too! You are a swapping girl after my own heart! Have a great Thursday!
