corners.

We finally finished our house. If you've been reading for a long time then you might remember our no hot water/no heating/no ceiling phases which lasted longer than anyone would care for. But it's finally finished and ready for someone to buy please. 
I'm better at little corners than whole rooms. Whole rooms intimidate me. Whenever I've moved house I've always packed one box with my favourite pretty things and as soon as I've arrived I've unpacked that box into a small corner somewhere and been home. One day I'll master whole rooms but in the meantime here some of the small corners.

Notes. 

photo 2: Did anyone else buy Nova when it was relaunched? I loved that magazine and it seemed like a not-so-small miracle that it appeared in our local shop on our little island where you couldn't get your Sunday papers until Monday morning every month. Until it didn't and I cried real tears. I was 16 when Nova came out for the second time, I'm pretty sure it changed my life.
Operation Alphabet is an amazing kids book that its very kind authors sent me to review. I haven't done it yet because whenever I get it out to photograph W&P are ALL OVER it and it's a disaster, but lemme tell you, it's gorgeous and if you're looking for a kiddy book for slightly older kiddies, you should buy it.   
photo 4: Do you like my red anglepoise lamp? TK Maxx baby! £14!   
photo 11: I don't wear Coco Mademoiselle. I was given it 12 years ago and I kept it because the bottle made me feel all fancy. So if you're imagining me smelling like that then stop. I smell like damp laundry. Sexay.
