amazing free download-able art!

Titan - JPL Travel Poster
Amazing free printable alert! My husband called me over to "show me something cool" this morning, and that usually means he's found either a picture of an animal so weird it should not exist or an epic Ron Swanson meme, but today what he had to show me was really worth the trip across the kitchen....

things I wish I'd known when I started doing up my house

                                diy decorating tips for new homeowners

First of all, let me just say congratulations! Buying a house is a big step, and whether you have already moved in to your little piece of paradise or have just made the decision to start looking, it's a big step to take and I commend you.

If you've read the "about me" section of this blog you'll know that my path to house-ownership was far from a smooth one. Sometimes no matter how prepared you are things just don't go to plan (i.e. sellers can be absolute d*cks) and you find yourself gigantically pregnant a year after you thought you'd be in your new house, sneaking past the bank backwards lest your mortgage adviser behold your gravid state and retract your mortgage offer and desperately making bids on anything that even comes close to meeting some of your criteria! "Hey, who needs windows anyway? I personally don't even like natural light."

new year, new loo.

budget bathroom makeover

Hello hello hello! I'm back today with an honest-to-god reveal post. Two posts in one week, I've practically got my sh*t together! Maybe I'll start getting dressed before lunch time and occasionally being on time for things.....or maybe not. Baby steps.

Yeah, so I was going to title this post "guest bathroom reveal", and then I realised I'm not actually American, so instead you get a terrible pun that was more relevant a month ago when I started this makeover.

I wish I was sorry but I'm just not.

easy diy geo diamond plant cage/ornament thingy

geo diamond diy plant cage ornament

So yeah, I made a thing, out of straws, that I believe is quite pleasant and decorative!
It could be a sculptural, ornamental piece, you could turn it into a lamp shade pretty easily, you could use the same method to make wreaths etc for your wall, but I've opted to use mine as a....plant cage? Is that a thing? I feel like that's a thing. 
Whatever, I've got a tiny plant trapped in it, it's a frickin' plant cage as far as I'm concerned!
