Elsie, our dear little cottage, is inching closer to winning her beauty sash.
But not without a few tears.
The question remains, will Elsie greet Christmas with a New Look or will we just have to embrace her, shabby chic, and all?
Pictorial progress report:
I had no idea how much sash windows weigh! It took four big burly blokes, a special trolley and me with my hands over my eyes to install the replacement.
Meanwhile, around the back, colour is creeping on!
Inside, well, I’m nuts about the set of Nanny McPhee (the second film). Soooo, I’m using that as my inspiration.
Lots of colour, kitsch, thrifted china and op shop accessories.
I picked up this lamp for fifty bucks. Fifty!!! My beautiful friend made me the quilt as a housewarming gift. I can’t tell you how much I love it. It’s made from Japanese fabrics.
I’ll show you more inside pics once we finish paintin’ and decoratin’.
And, finally, today…
I think we’re going to make it!!! xo

Looking good! Elsie reminds me of the house I lived in as a kid and I always drew the front of comfy houses like that 🙂
