Reading: white + Christmas
There are a couple of places in my house that could do with some white paint, or lighter paint. The wider world attaches 'shabby chic' to all sorts of frizzy-frou-frou, when she is often enough more likely to assume less is more, rather than a roomful of stuff letting nothing be seen properly.
Did a big spring clean of the living room yesterday, and it was good to have had this book in my head. I'm not sure you could have seen the difference - but I did, as I dusted and vacuumed and put things in the rubbish or the opshop box.
The Christmas issues of craft magazines, which come out in October, are starting to lob in. This one includes the results of this blog entry and this one . So I don't really have to make any Christmas craft - I was stitching and quilting months ago!
