This week has flown by, aided no doubt by the extra day off on Monday. Time really does seem to pass much more quickly the older we get. When I was a kid Summer seemed to last FOREVER, and now it seems to be here and then gone in a matter of few weeks. The year between Christmas and the next one seemed to stretch endlessly. I feel like I've just managed Easter when I start thinking about Christmas again. Maybe it's our perception of time that changes or maybe we have more things that fill our lives . Whatever the reason I really do wish I could recapture the time when time moved more slowly.
Enough reminiscing from me and onto my favourite thing for this week. I mentioned a while back that I was going to focus on updating some of my home decor this year. My house doesn't need a lot of change but it does need some tweaking. "Finishing touches" if you like. The lounge room was first and you can see that here.
I've been looking for the perfect piece of furniture to make my entry hall vision a reality. Sadly I'm one of those people that get an idea in my head and then cant shift it and will spend months looking for the right thing . And then if I cant find it I pass it on over to Mr. P to make it (no pressure hon!)
I've had this hall table for about 15 years and while I love it, it was definitely time for a change. The duchess mirror sitting on top is a family piece, first owned by my Mum and for the last 8 or so years it's resided here because it goes so perfectly with the table.
I've wanted a love seat in the entry hall. Because the entry hall is quite small (there's nothing very grand about our house) this was proving quite a challenge. Until recently when I spied one on ebay. It was perfect!
And there's nothing like a massively oversized clock as a feature piece to remind you you're running late either. Our framed wedding pictures have been relegated to another part of the house which was cause for consternation for my MIL who thought we were getting a divorce.
Chuck some pretty french inspired cushions on it and you have a completely different look.
My original idea for this seat was for ambience but both his Royal Orange-ness and Little P have commandeered what Little P has christened the "sitting chair" so it's getting actual use. Little P and I use it to have talks, soothe wounded feelings and kiss ouchies better and Moredecai thinks he's the king of the house and this is his throne.
That's my favourite for this week. Feel free to link up one of your favourites too.
