The Weekend

Progress on the flat has been continuing well this weekend starting with putting my shower curtain up in the bathroom

The shower curtain was brought on one of my America trips from Rachel Ashwell's Simply Shabby Chic range at Target (and yes I am regretting not ironing it before I put it up!)

Yesterday I came home from the charity shop with a table for my lounge

The one I did have in the space before was too small - this one fits like a glove! It'll be added to the list of items to be painted

And finally I'd jokingly sent a friend this link the other day suggesting it'd make a nice gift for my birthday, imagine my pleasure when I found this in TK Maxx!

It was only £30 and provides more storage in the kitchen (currently holding my supplies for the Simnell cake I'm planning to bake this week)

Now I'm off to lay my table for a friend who is coming for dinner tomorrow

Pin It Now!


  1. What a great find, I love TKMaxx.
