Last weekend we went woodland walking. After the bluebells a few weeks ago, we were keen to get back into the countryside and enjoy what it has to offer while the weather is good. Getting in the car and just driving without having a destination in mind is like going on a mini adventure, you never know what’s round the next corner. We drove along winding narrow country lanes, passing many quaint cottages along the way (wish I’d stopped to take photos...) I love living at the seaside, but when I get into the countryside I feel the urge to swap my flip flops and go all wellies and tweed jackets! The bluebells had all disappeared, but in their place were woodlands filled with wild garlic, a carpet of white so pretty and so delicate.
I promised photos of the front door a while back. I didn’t have my camera with me, so excuse the iPhone pics. The exterior facade still needs painting, but being a little impatient, we got down to transforming the door first. The original front door was shabby to say the least, brown and ugly and in dire need of a little facelift! We chose a lovely blue called Lady in Waiting by Valspar and replaced the old worn out hardware with new chrome finishes. I love how it's gone from ugly duckling to 'hey you there!'
It's wet and grey outside this bank holiday Monday, but after a weekend of painting and decorating, I'm glad I can do a little 'couch potato' blogging and a little reading...
Have a great week!
