Reasons To Be Cheerful

The weather has been really hot all week, here in Essex. A little too hot for me, but I'm not complaining because I do love the sun, it seems to energise me and I tend to get more done.

1. I found an amazing vintage kitchen tray in my local charity shop for a pound. I have been looking out for a 1970's tray for months, and the ones I'm attracted to I rarely see for under £15. I'm totally thrilled with my bargain.

2. My lavatera has started blooming in my front garden. I planted it last year and this summer it has grown lovely and big. This is one of my favourite plants and wherever I live I always plant one. It is big, bold and very pretty. Great value for money.

3. Hubby has started painting my bathroom. We did paint it turquoise last month but I couldn't get on with it. I don't know why, but it made me feel glum. Its odd because turquoise is one of my most favourite colours, but it just didn't work in my tiny bathroom. It is now becoming a sand colour, which I love.

How Has Your Week Been?

Reasons to be Cheerful at Mummy from the Heart

  3. Love the sound of the sand colour! The flower and tray are lovely too! :) x

  4. I love Lavatera too, especially how it grows so big so quickly. Such a shame the turquoise didn't work out that's always such a let down after going to the effort to paint and it doesn't work.x

  5. I have a small turquoise bathroom so know what you mean. Trouble is it matches detail in the tiling. Glad your week was good.

  6. I am loving the tray! its a shame about the bathroom colour and having to do it again but i do know what you mean if you dont feel right with it x

  7. I love turquoise too ...... May stay away from it as a decorating colour! Lol x
