My friends sent me this cute word cloud of my blog. I'm going to print it off and put it in my new kitchen which is green :) Have you any word clouds?

This is just up the road from my new home, a short hop, skip and jump...
Along the lake shore, taking in all the scenery as you go...
the views, the tranquility...
along the gravel path...
and back home again...
and then to sit down and look at this out the back window...
Oh to live in the countryside and take it all in!!

Some before and after images, not quiet finished yet though!
1 and 2 are images of my main entrance hall which is double height, I have yet to get my stairs,as you can see from the images above we have moved the old wooden steps out and replaced with a ladder for a while. Number 3 is my study/library which is up in the eaves. It's my hidden room and all that is left is the light, skirting board and door. I used some laminate flooring my dad had left over from his house.

The exterior of the house is progressing very slowly. We decided to put stone on the porch and here it is! It was too expensive to put it all over the front so I think the porch built in stone adds a bit of character to the house. Excuse the mess outside!

Today I went to look at some bedroom furniture and I saw this range which I think I will buy? What do you think of it? What type of furniture have you in your bedroom? I also got my floor tiles for downstairs delivered today :)

Here is the transformation photographs of the old chair I found in the garage, what do you think? It's my first furniture make over and I love it! It took two undercoats and one gloss. I think it turned out well and my dad just told me there are another 3 in the garage attic. This one is going in my spare bedroom. Have you any furniture transformations to share with me. I want to put a nice baby blue or pink cushion on it. I have a cushion which would be nice but it is slightly too big, see below

How pretty are these cushions all under €20.00 from Heatons, my favourite is the the one on the top left- so delicate and sweet isn't it? I hope you are all having a lovely weekend where ever you are!

Hello all, hope you are all well. The weather is miserable in Ireland, very clammy but with heavy showers. I hope you are all having a better Summer. The weekend arrives again tomorrow and I am taking Monday off work so I get another nice long weekend. I came across this lovely inspiration from Cath Kidston's website which I love, but I doubt my budget will stretch that far, I'll be lucky to have one or two pieces from her range.
I have more exciting plans up my sleeve which I will share with you all at a later stage.

Some photographs of the interiors of my kitchen. The tiles featured above are the ones I am going with, they are atrium brillo paisley I think! I have painted oak units and a wood effect worktop. I hope to paint the walls a green colour and the floor is Denver Porcelain tiles like those above. In the other half of the kitchen we will have wood effect and the dining table will go there. Let me know what you think? And be honest, I won't take it personally :)
Hello everyone! We have a long weekend here in Ireland and I took Friday off work too, It is great to just get some time to do some work of my own. Yesterday we went to Ikea and I picked up the above cabinets from the Flaren range- well at least I think that's what it's called. I also picked out floor covering and possibly the tiles above to go along with white tiles. My bathroom is painted nordic breeze which turned out blue so I have to work around that now. It is nice enough though. What have you all been up to?
