Welcome! Delivery! And a very, very messy bedroom!

First of all, I would like to welcome three new followers.
First up: Marleen who is currently working on a beautiful country cottage! I can't wait to see this finished as it looks adorable!

Second: Marie who has the cutest, girliest dolls house you have ever seen! I love this blog when I'm looking for some pretty, chic and floral inspiration!

And last, but not least!: Alennka who is currently working on a beautiful garden. I've been looking through the photos of the garden and I love how well it's coming along. I particuarly like the little stream, and the colours she has used for the plants and trees; they give a nice, crisp, autumn feeling!

Now, for the delivery!

Today, having come home from town carrying some lovely crafting delights (more about that later!) I found a nice sized parcel waiting for me on the dining room table. Here is a photo of what it contained:

The furniture for the children's bedroom and a few accessories. Not all of the accessories sent to me are shown in this photo, as they are parts of other rooms and did not seem to fit temporarily in this room (such as a study desk set for example.)

So here I have the bunk bed set including the step ladders. A shelf unit which is currently housing some books and pen pot. A chest of drawers, a wardrobe and a bed side table.

The room itself is far from finished - I have yet to fit the carpet that I bought today and I need to make some bedding for the beds. Also, the books in the book shelf are not for this room so they need to be replaced with some books I plan to make this week. Other than that, it'll be odd bits to fill out the room and make it lived in!

Well isn't it nice to have a little surprise! :)

Now I warn you - tie a rope around your waist and attach the other end to something that won't budge as you get pulled into your computer screen! There has got to be a scary monster living amongst all of this!!:


Yes, the state of my room when I got back from shopping this morning! Oops. You can see my dolls house in the corner, where I have been working on it. Bits of wood laying around ready and waiting to be cut into size. The box by the wardrobe doors is my surprise parcel now filled with other boxes. And then of course my beautiful dog, Zena, inspecting the mess. Bless her.

Well as you can see this mess is just not liveable - and unfortunately I do have to get it all tidied up and in order before my mom sees - oops. So I'm going to leave you all to your blogging and dolls housing - and unfortunately for some your daily chores - while I go tidy this mess up and get on with some wood cutting.

Bye for now!


  1. Shellby, you are going to have to go some to become a pro at messing up the workroom. Just wait until it starts spilling into other parts of the house!Just wait a while....LOL

  2. Haha! It is strange though, I only dumped my shopping in the room and this was the state I found it after my lunch. I swear that monster made this mess!

    I have already taken over the study room in the house. There's saw dust all over the desk and carpet. There's pots of wood stainer on the filing cabinet with pieces of wood drying out. I've only just found the keyboard! Hehe :D

  3. Hi,

    Don't you feel silly when you're following a blog, but fail to connect the name with the blog? I've just finished beating my head against the table after realising I'd failed to connect the new follower on my blog to your blog here. Anyway, thanks for commenting and leaving the link - I've ammended the post in include your blog now.

  4. Thank you Alennka i'll put the link up :)
