Mess mess and more mess. That is how I would describe my sewing space at the moment. Underneath it all lies the dining room table, which sadly no one dines at because of all the mess. But all that will change after Christmas. I am asking Santa to bring a lovely big set of shelves from ikea, the expedit ones, if anyone is interested. I think it will be perfect to hold not only all my sewing and craft things, but also to house the children's books on the bottom sheves as well as some of my more special vintage childrens books on the higher shelves where little hands cannot reach them. So the point of this pic, as embarrassing as it is, is to be the 'before' picture and in Janurary I will proudly post the 'after' pic.
So that covers the inside of my house at the moment and now to the outside. I am no gardener or photograher either, but I just had to share this little beauty. I was so thrilled this morning to see that our trees have started flowering, I think they are gardenias, but I can't remember. My mother in law helped us plant them last year, but they were looking rather sad after so much dry weather. Then last week buds popped up all over them and then this morning this! Isn't it just beautiful!
