New Things

What's your latest "thing"? Mine is fairy lights! I have always loved them, but I have been maybe going a little OTT on them at the moment. I love the LED lights. I find them cheapest on ebay but leave the international sellers out on this one. There are a lot of bad reviews! I have them in the bathroom (battery), bedroom, living room and car lights in the boys room.
Lights on the shelf above my bed.
My fireplace lights. I have moved my bookcase into the hall after completing it's make over. I bought the book case from a car boot sale for £7.50 two years ago, always meaning to paint it. Well I finally gave it the Annie Sloane treatment over the summer. I actually painted it with a grey Farrow and Ball undercoat, as I have been having problems with the orange pine coming through. I know you are not meant to with AS, but I have.
I am quite happy with the little set up, and I can still get the pram passed it! I have all my interior magazines on it to, so I can grab a few over a cup of tea. This was the before!
My mum was chucking out a load of stuff, she has sold our childhood home and needs to clear out loads! I started with an old camera, and a shadow box type cabinet. The camera is on display on the new shelves. I love it.
