Goodbye yellow brick wall...
Going, going, gone...!
... is the yellow wall in the conservatory, and welcome 'Natural Hessian'! Some may find this colour a little bland and boring, and would perhaps even miss the sunny yellow that previously shouted out its loud message to the world here. I agree that the yellow was a happy and sunny colour, but it had somehow done its job for me.
Do you ever notice things in your own photos you were completely unaware of at the time of taking the photo? Like a long piece of wood on the ledge above, ready to be made into hearts, but certainly no added value to this photo...?!
And from that to something completely different...
Zinc and Norwegian loveliness
Even though I do find zinc a rather 'cold' material, like - in fact - all metals, for some time I have found myself hopelessly drawn to it. Looking around the house, I see evidence of this love story here, there and everywhere... The 'number plates' and the heart above (note the gorgeous "diamond" crown detail on the heart, half-hidden by the ribbon) increased the "love factor" in the Swenglish home massively, when they -together with a lovely mix of little decorative items - arrived yesterday in the post, all the way from Norway!
Anette, or Guttemamma as she is known, is a warm, bubbly, creative 'blog sister' with a lovely home and an equally lovely blog. The blog universe is an amazing place, and holds in its embrace so many friendly fellow bloggers and a wonderful virtual 'living room' in which friendships can grow. Thank you, dear Anette, what a wonderful surprise Christmas gift!
Wishing you all a lovely weekend! I wonder, will you be humming "Seven more sleeps to go, seven more sleeps to Santa..."? I can't seem to get it out of my head!
