A Magickal Home.....



Well as I said in my last blog- WHERE is the sunshine??? I feel so sorry for all the parents trying to occupy children, I hope that all your summer hols are going well despite the lack of sun. As the weather has been a bit miserable I have been doing some more ' Homework ' and the bathroom is now finished.

Just one photo, as I took so many last time.....


I have been going through the home recently and have completed lots of those niggling little jobs that you never get time to do! But now I DO have time, I am relishing it!! I still have the office/craft room to do- which will probably take a week...but one step at a time.
The only thing now is that I seem to have caught a nasty cold and sore throat so thought that I would do some 'virtual nesting ' by curling up with some books and films....


This is a lovely book.....

I wonder if, while we are living in such uncertain and sometimes difficult times ,our homes really do become more important, a place of safety ,somewhere to relax, create and be ourselves.I know that my Husband ,who has had some difficult times at work over the past few months, really appreciates the 'sanctuary' and relaxation our home gives him and I love having the time to give him that!
It may sound a bit 'Stepford Wives' but it is how we feel......

While curled up I watched a favourite film of mine....


The Movie..... 

The Book......


My Dream Home.......

When I first saw the film I fell head over heels in love with the house- sadly it was created for the film on a plot in Friday Harbor- but I still love it and dream that maybe one day.....

But until then I try to create a little bit of Magic in our home everyday..

Warm Wishes for a Wonderful (and Magickal) Week,

I love that house too... don't you just love the bit where they are dancing around the table in the kitchen... excellent movie... oh and i would kill for a conservatory to grow plants in and potter about in...
(more likely sit and crochet in too!)

loving your bathroom makeover... and I completely agree with a real urge to make my home work better for me... currently I am wanting to make it clean, cosy and get it all set up for winter... this is one of the first real years that I have been so much in tune with the seasons and have noticed the change in the days and the weather... this is our first real day of rain... its been threatening for ages but no actual rain... and goodness me do the gardens need it...
