Rose tinted glasses – The new house to do list

Two Hearts One Roof New HomeWhen you fall in love with something, you tend to see what you like first. Its always been the same, we walk into a house/flat I see plain walls, wood floor, SOLD.  It wasn’t quite like that this time. We spent more time working out dimensions, proportions and what needed doing. Surveys revealed minor work that was recommended but not in dire need right away and second and third visits allowed us to check out the property in more detail. We set a budget that we wanted to put aside for decorating and furniture and then came the “to do” and “we need” list.

Chantele’s Etsy Finds – Henry the Egg Cup
by

Handmade Egg CupI am ever so slightly in love with this egg cup, his name is Henry! He was designed by Hello Design K. I eat a lot of boiled eggs (even more since being on the Slimming World diet) and would be so happy to have them in these cute little crown shaped egg cups! Sadly they are a little bit pricey at £16 each or 2 for £29 (and obviously I’d need 2!) but they are simply adorable! So Christmas ideas for any family or friends reading this.
