What with buying a new apartment, moving house, throwing out old and deciding about what to get new, coupled with moving another child across the oceans to a foreign country and throwing in a Christmas and a New Year in-between, all of that in the space of 3 months. Yes tired, but good, I think.


Jack the fat cat

I bought these chairs years ago and love the old rose fabric but it just would not go with the new space. Introducing the french stripe was the right decision.Jack the fat cat of course made a bee line for the newly upholstered chairs and it is now his space, whether he fits on it or not.


Old rose print

A great change I think.

He just absolutely refuses to move…..half on half off, hanging on for dear life!image

I had 2 round mirrors desperate for a change and the new deep coppery shade made old look good again. Various colours and coats of paint got it to this shade.image

  2. Gorgeous chairs and cushions and I can see Jack knows what he wants. I don’t blame him as well. He is such a cutie! ๐Ÿ˜€

    Such beautiful mirrors as well and your artichoke is really beautiful. Thanks to Aletta that provided the link to your blog, I can now see who took the lovely photo. ๐Ÿ˜€

    Your sister-in-law is very artistic. I just love the colours she used in her painting. Really beautiful. ๐Ÿ˜€


    • Ha! One needs to do what one needs to do huh! If the year is not eventful enough then one needs to intervene. Waiting was never a strong point of mine….. How are you doing in the far yonder? Still cold much. We had a very hot summer and I am looking forward to. A bit of cold. Off to Korea again in a while๐Ÿค“
