As the lovely Linda commented recently- it’s not everyone who can boast that they have  “an illuminated hatch!” I bought several sets of lights over Christmas. This set of holographic lanterns was half price in Wilkinsons, so if Nigella can have lights in her kitchen , then so can I. I’ve moved two old wicker chairs from the bedrooms down to the kitchen and it’s now a cosy warm place to sit. I bought the lamp in Homebase at half price and the stickers on the wall were only £1.99  in B & M . So with the addition of some pussy willow from M & S and an orchid which has regrown a beautiful set of new flowers I think it looks quite stylish. Gosh I seem to be abbreviation crazy!!

After a minor mishap last year when a gold framed mirror tumbled down from between the windows when a stiff breeze blasted through my studio, I purchased an inferior substitute from  B & M Bargains (great store if you’ve never been tempted to enter). It had a white plastic frame and I decided it was a suitable candidate to be alcohol inked. As per usual it was 3/4 completed when something else took my fancy and I abandoned it. So, new year new broom as they say and it’s now complete and adorning my windows. It’s much darker than I first intended and has acquired a bleached look by spraying with Blending Solution. My lovely ladies have commented on how it enhances my studio curtains, a happy accident I must admit.
