New beginnings

Well after the work stuff here comes the good stuff (hopefully you'll think so anyway!) :)
I have recently had an epiphany. I will be 30 next year and whenever anyone has asked me 'what do you want to do with your life?' I've always drawn a blank. As a kitchen designer I make a living, but it's not my passion, but quite frankly Ive never really realised what my passion is. Until now. Now to most this may seem odd, but seriously, within the last week I've actually thought- 'I love this'. 'This' being staying up til 2.30am setting up a Facebook page or constant phone calls to see if I can set up our own vintage fair. It actually fills me with joy. Promoting something that I feel passionate about. I'm excited! Kate will tell you that for the past 18 years she's never seen me so inspired, excited or move so quick! Both in actually physical movement and speed in which things are coming together for Kate and Lexy's Vintage!(I'm usually a very 'take things as they come', laid back kind of person-but not with this. I'm running with it!).

Things are moving on for Kate too. She has literally just had a solid offer on her little cottage and Mr and Mrs Kate have put in an offer on a new house-so please everyone keep your fingers crossed! She's also had a new addition to the family....

Beautiful Bunty!!
She joins the more senior members of our combined family,
the lovely Bill, Kate's Dachshund-cross toe licker!

(don't be fooled, he's having a tummy rub now, but turn your eyes for just a second and he'll lick your toes til you squeal!).

The final member of the clan is my cat, gorgeous George :)

Obviously I'm biased, but I think he's gorgeous...apart from when he's using my Victorian set of pine drawers as a scratch post!

So going back a step, I thought on this poignant evening for Kate and Mr Kate, and Bill and Bunty for that matter, that I should pay homage to Kate's little cottage. A place that has seen many happy times for me, let alone them! I know Kate especially will miss it but as the clan expands, so must the home.
So here it is.....

They're lovely sitting room which is lovely with the fire roaring in the winter time.

They're cosy bedroom (which Kate has promptly tided for these photos lol ;) )

And Kate's sewing room. Where the magic happens!

And never one to want to feel left out, I've thrown in some pictures of my humble boudoir :)

I love a cushion I do! And a feather eiderdown for that matter!

 The scene of many of George's crimes!

So with that I'm saying goodnight, good luck and fingers crossed for Mr and Mr Kate xx
