Some Of My Favourite Things ....

I have shown my Christmas Tree decorated on the post below . But having seen what do you love about your holiday home on participating blogs for the party recently , i thought i would show you some of my favourite things in my home ...... Not Christmas related , but i`d like to share my favourites .....



A " floating " light panel , with led and halogen lights on our bedroom ceiling . It`s remote controlled , and has 8 different light effects . One of which i call " disco " , and you don`t need that going on above you , if you`re trying to get to sleep ! We usually have it on while watching television , a bad thing i know to have in the bedroom !







My liquorice allsort table , i call it . By the designers from Ligne Roset , of France . We saw it at a home and gardens exhibition , and HAD to get . I daren`t tell you what it cost us !!!








It opens out a few different ways , so you have more room for others to use it ..... It is that heavy , it takes 2 people to move it , when i need to vacuum underneath it ...








My red rose wallpaper , which is one wall in the bedroom ....








Opposite side is a long dressing table , from Ikea , and before we put the tv on the wall .....






Our back room , that was a dining room ... But we decided to make it a chill room , with a sofa and to listen to music or read , and has a room divider . More to the left is where i sit at the computer ....






The back bedroom was turned into my craft room , which we decorated this August for me . This is my bird wallpaper , from Laura Ashley , and does not photograph that well , as it`s a metallic duck egg blue ...






Small bookcase displaying some of my thrift finds ....







My large table that i do my work on .... And if you think it looks like that now .... It`s a total mess !!






And lastly , my curtains , and much needed large bookcase to store more items .....







I hope you all enjoyed my little tour of what i love in my home .
So i would like to ask you , and if you want to show anything that you love , whether it is an ornament , fabric , furniture .....
What is your favourite item in your home ??

Thank you for the home pics. Great blog idea! It helps me to know "you" more. I feel like I just watched an episode of Changing Rooms!

I like the Laura Ashley wallpaper. In the second pic, the blue is more apparent. And I like the idea of a "chill" room.

Hi Carolyn. Hope you don't mind, but I was surfing the web for a company who sells rose wallpaper for our bedroom. Wasn't sure whether to go black/white or red as I have a chair with Roses on it to match. I love the wallpaper you have in your bedroom and wondered if you could tell me where it was from please. Many thanks in advance. Your house looks absolutely lovely. Kind regards, J.x

Hi J ,

Thanks for the comment - and it was lucky i looked back to this post - maybe next time if you have any questions - put it on a more recent post for - otherwise i may never know !

I`m not sure if you`re in the UK - but i got the rose wallpaper from a place called Glynn webbs here - and i`m not sure if you`ll still get it now . i cannot remember the make of it - the place sold discounted lines - but good luck with finding something - if you haven`t already !!
