Five things I love right now: October
1. Wayfair.co.uk glass terrarium. I’m going to plant this up with succulents, but for now, I’ve filled it with pinecones and conkers that the girls have collected.2. TIGER bathroom accessories. Our ‘new’ bathroom was finished in the new year, but we haven’t decided on new towels or other accessories yet. When we do, I will blog about it, so you can see the transformation! I found these great little beakers in TIGER for a pound each, and was so pleased, as they have suckers on the back so they don’t clutter up the sink. Ava and Thea each have their own and they put their brush and toothpaste back after they use them, rather than just chucking them into the sink. So we might go for turquoise towels to match!
3. Bird wallpaper. One of the reasons I can’t decide on towels is that I want some wallpaper above the bath. But I can’t find the right one (apart from really expensive ones!) I have had the one on the left up for ages, and do like it, but am bothered by the fact that the flower is as big as the peacock. I don’t like it when the scale is out (just one of the reasons I can’t watch “In The Night Garden”!) The flamingo one is from Laura Ashley and I do love it but think it might be a bit childish. So I’m leaving them blu-tacked up until we decide. If you know of any flamingo wallpaper that we wouldn’t have to re-mortgage our house for, please let me know!
4. RHS Wisley in autumn We are RHS members and loved visiting Wisley in the spring, and went back over half term, when it was just as great. The girls loved seeing the ducks and swans, and hiding under these giant leaves!
5. Arts and crafts days. We’ve had such a great half term holiday and the weather has been pretty good, but one day Ava just wanted to make a cake stand. She let Thea decorate the top layer and did the rest herself. We helped her stick the lolly sticks on.
