Hello welcome to my very first post!

I didn't even know what a blog was 6 month's ago until I read an article in a magazine about blogs and thought how strange it was for other people to read all about your life. Anyway I decided to explore since then I've been addicted I've stumbled upon people who have the same interests as me a love of interiors, scouring charity shops and car boot sales for vintage finds, lots of people with amazing creativity making beautiful things and mums just like me enjoying the ups and downs thrills and spills of looking after their children.

I've always thought I was a bit weird being in my thirties and liking the things that wouldn't look out of place in my Grandmas house! My brother in law always jokes that I should of been born in another era! But its nice to know that I am not alone.

I thought it was about time I did my own blog seen as I while away many an hour nosing at your gorgeous homes! Ours is not so gorgeous we live in a Edwardian cottage on a quiet lane it has lots of potential we'd like to add a 3rd bedroom in the loft and add a Edwardian timber conservatory kitchen extension on the back and redecorate throughout not much hey! I do love our little cottage and know that when its finished it will be just perfect for us.

The photo is of my mothers day cards one from my 3 yr old daughter Emily and one from my 14 mth old son Elliott. Daddy chose them obviously! He has very good taste don't you think?

I hope I've not rambled on too much it's very nerve racking doing this first post.Will anyone really be interested in little old me?!

Were off on our hols on Saturday to the Cots wolds should be right up my street lots of beautiful old villages to explore and plentiful gift and antique shops to visit! Will put lots of pics on my next post!

Hi there - I hope you enjoy your holiday - and don't forget to post pics of anything you manage to buy - although Im aware that children and 'browsing shops' don't necessarily mix - I've learnt the art of dashing in, doing a quick recky and buying what i like in minimum time! - Natalie x
