Our New Home + Front Doors

Our new home has a beautiful Victorian door with original stained glass, it is stunning to look at from inside as the glass lights up in beautiful pinks, purples and yellows but from outside the door just blends in with the rendered walls and looks blah to me!

I can't wait for the wisteria to come out which will make it look pretty but I keep nagging Mr C for a change of colour to the door. He agrees to paint it a safe French Grey or some other tasteful period colour but I want BOLD!

What do you think? What colour would you go for? Have a look at these beauties to whet your whistle, to me they look so welcoming, fun and glam...

And here is a shot of our new place and that camouflaged door..

Back to Attack!

Apologies for the extremely long absence but I can report that I am still here!
I took some time away from blogging as we have had quite a difficult few months, we were told my father-in-law was terminally ill just before Christmas and sadly hasn't been given long. News like this readjusts your priorities and some things, including blogging, I couldn't get my head round for a while.
It has been rewarding, though, consciously putting family life first and I have included a few catch up shots of what's been happening since December.

Also, our lease came up on our beautiful house we have been renting for a year and only 10 days ago we moved again! Although the last house was stunning and perfectly finished this one has a real family feel and is just off the high street in our favourite town so I am feeling very blessed right now - I swear I'm never moving again!

Now we are all settled I look forward to catching up with my favourite blogs and sharing all my news and finds again!

much love x
