Happy New Year 2016!

I can't believe it's 2016 already! Thank you so much to everyone who has taken the time to read my blog, or follow me over in Instagram - I've really enjoyed chatting to you all and sharing my life/home with you. 

To celebrate the new year, I thought I'd have a little look back on my highlights of 2015, seeing as it was the year I started blogging, and recording my adventures into home interiors. 

At the start of the year, we made over our master bedroom and lounge, which was very time consuming, but we're really happy with the finished results.

We also put our own stamp on the garden (which I will be blogging about soon), and painted the previously-bright red front door pale green, which fitted our pastel/vintage theme much more.

In July, after spotting so many beautiful homes on Instagram, I decided to set up my own account dedicated to my first house, and my attempts to transform it into my dream country cottage home, and in September, after having so much fun over there, I decided to launch a blog - to give me somewhere to share my ideas further, and as an outlet for my new found-hobby. 

October saw me have my first go at upcycling a table and chairs in Annie Sloan...

... just in time for us to hold a Halloween party for my family.

We decorated up in time for Christmas at the end of November (probably far too early!), something which I really enjoyed, who doesn't love creating their own Santa's grotto!

In 2016 I hope to continue blogging and redecorating my home, starting with a complete makeover of our en-suite and spare room, previously untouched areas of our home! I'd also absolutely love to hear the pitter patter of tiny dog paws at some point this year - however that may take a little more persuading the hubby! 

What are your New Years resolutions? 

Thanks for reading, all the best for a fabulous 2016!
