Rambling bits and bobs.

So hello! How are you all? I’m having a really good day today – one of those “high energy” days when the sun shines, you fling open the windows thinking its going to be a fabulous day.

My dog has other ideas though……


She is a bit of a lazy bones when its warm. In fact she doesn’t like going out when its wet either, so…..its hard work being a dog.

I haven’t been doing much creating of late……trying to get the Room of Doom straightened out and decluttered for college has taken up most of my time. Being ruthless with “my stuff” is a terrible ordeal. Its something that requires a constant stream of “Do I need this? Will it come in useful? Why haven’t I used it then”? questions. I have already dispatched 14 wallpaper sample books to the recycling (which gets picked up tomorrow – and no I won’t be fetching them back beforehand – although I did think about it)

I have been watching some minimalist videos on YouTube and feeling all inspired. So I tackled a room and decorated it in a neutral palette…..

vintage room

This does have a vintage filter on it, but basically its all browns and creams. I had a mad idea to use up some samples in a patchwork design on one wall……and I don’t like it now. In fact I’m not sure I like the room (its a tiny bedroom that was my daughters)Do you see the button lamp I glued up from ages ago? And that Bureau was a gift from hubby about 7 years ago – I adore bureaus.

Only have a couple of weeks to go before college starts. They want a photo of me for my college card, and no matter how many times I send one to them, it gets rejected for one reason or another! I’m no good at selfies, haha!

So I hope you are all well. Bye for now 🙂

  1. You have been busy! I’ve been decluttering the children’s craft shelves in the small extension play room. I save card and cardboard, both flat and tubes like there’s no tomorrow, but the boys are too old for making medieval castles and wepaons now amd the next generation are too young, so it’s all gone in the recycling, and boy was that so hard! It seems such a waste. And guess what? Yesterday I needed a cardboard tube!! 😄🙄

    1. Oh I know exactly how you feel! I have a small stack of cereal boxes that I have lovingly kept for about 2 months, that I *insist* I am going to use for bookbinding! I have until 7am tomorrow to decide what to do with them 😀 At least if yours and mine does get recycled, well its a good cause isn’t it? Nothing wasted. no point in trying to hoard stuff just in case….(do I sound convinced yet?!!)

  2. As I look into your room, I’m on the edge of my seat and itching to get that lamp cable tidied out of the way before someone trips over it – go on, just slip it safely behind the bureau – Health and Safety you know dear Scribbler… Ho ho!…

    1. Ha! I didn’t even see that cable, ohmygosh, thank you! Yes it is still a work in progress and all has been tidied up now! But I appreciate your concern – the lamp is now next to the wall where the socket is, so no cable floating around. That’ll teach me to look before taking shots! 🙂
