Liebster Blog Awards

I dont know where the time has gone.........sorry for the long gap since my last blog!!

Firstly a long overdue big thank you!! to the lovely who has awarded me a Liebster Blog award.
The rules are that I must link back to the person who gave me the award and then nominate some of the blogs that I love, who have under 300 followers.  So here goes - in no particular order........

Oooh..think I had better stop now - the trouble is there are so many that keep me entertained!!!  So well done and thank you!!

We have been so busy this weekend..........just haven't stopped.  Decorating, spring cleaning, making stuff ready for playgroups next week, gardening etc. etc.

Anyway, hubby was decorating more of the hallway but I decided to get the study ready for starting my childcare diploma next week!  This is a room that leads directly off of the kitchen and then has a wetroom off of it. Although we pass through it every morning from the wetroom (as prefer this to the upstairs bathroom) it doesn't get used much as a room, but I thought it would be a nice, quiet place for me to study and enjoy the garden when I need a break!  So here are the before piccies.......

Although the wallpaper was beige with a pattern, I wanted to make it even more neutral and then add in my usual pink, blue and red accessories.

So I painted over it, put up my new curtains and added in my cushions...

I then put in my little Ikea desk, with a flap side, for working or sewing on.  The people before us had put the original kitchen units down into the shed and greenhouse, so I have saved one of them and started painting it.  It still needs some work but I have put it into this room for storage and to put the printer on.

I have painted the top of this pink too, but you can't tell from this picture.

And finally the view from the doors of the room, for when I need a break and the sun is shining....

One last random you like this little bear that my mum knitted my daughter??  I think it is just missing a little lilac rosebud for its head - which I will get when I think of it....

Have a good week and don't forget to pass on those awards!!
