Resolutions

One of my new years resolutions is to sell my unwanted items on eBay each month – a big contrast to last years resolution to buy a dress each month! So I am over the first hurdle, I have put my first item on, a very cute table and chairs that has sat in my outhouse since May after I replied it with my antique farmhouse table.

Since listing the item I have become addicted and I’m constantly checking to see how many watchers and bids I have. Currently 66 watchers, 8 bids, up to £45.99 and it still has 3 days 7 hours to go. Very exciting, a great resolution.

An Inspiring Time

With the new year approaching, plus spending the holidays at home I have been feeling very motivated and inspired. I am currently working on my list of new year resolutions, plus a healthy eating plan. I’ve cleared out my wardrobe and have taken two boxes full to the charity shop. Plus I have put my first ever item on ebay… feeling very proud about this one as it’s taken me 7 months to get round to doing this and now that I have I’ve become addicted to checking my listing to see how many watchers I have (current status… 2 days in, 34 watchers and 1 bidder).  In general I’ve been cleaning and tidying, getting ideas on refreshing the looks of my rooms and writing lots of lists (to do list, wish list, shopping list, resolutions). I’m going to hit this new year running.

To add to my list of things to do, I checked my Pinterest board ‘Nice Ideas’ this morning. I had totally forgot some of the lovely things I had posted on there, things that I want to make… so they’re going to have to be added to a list somewhere, but to keep them fresh in my mind, I thought I’d post them on here too.

This is a great idea to cover up my horrible black plastic hangers
I must have one of these with my portfolio on
I need to find and buy this… for my bathroom
Dip dyed tin cans. These would look great in my pastel
kitchen with vintage cutlery in.
Must buy white marker pen so I can do this
A memory jar, filled with the things you’ve been up to.
Sweet idea.. why not!
I could make one of these to use as my memory jar.
Jar, plastic toy, spray paint!
Dip dyed. Tester pots would work well for this.
Personalised doilly place mat…. love this!
Need to buy the tape, rubberstamps and button so I can
 recreate this for wrapping gifts.
I need to make this… it’s lovely. I know a couple of people with
new babies who would love this as a gift.
Need to perfect my gift wrapping so it looks like this.

Christmas Come Early

Yesterday was the first of my Christmas celebrations. I met up with two of my lovely London girlfriends for coffee, sandwiches and homemade scones, kindly hosted by Catherine. We exchanged gifts and I also got to open one of my gifts gift early, a very cute pair of bunny rabbit pants. Jo didn’t realise we were exchanging gifts so had left hers at home, but I did recieved a very beautifully wrapped bundle from Catherine.
