I love weekends, especially the ones where you have done everything during the week, all that is left to do is have a nice time for two days.
This weekend was one of those, we had my youngest son and his girlfriend visit, we saw nice things, ate nice things, enjoyed each others company, and we managed to fit in the all important relaxing doing nothing.
However I feel all that was lacking was three more days.
Who decided that we work five days and have two days off? Whoever it was got it the wrong way around.
Here are a few images from my weekend
Hillier’s Arboretum, Art in the garden.
Now you know what to do with all those plastic flower pots.
The wedding guest, so elegant.
I Phone’s take great pictures.
Editing your I Phone pictures is serious business!
The wedding guest belongs in my back garden!
Winchester City Mill
Yes, we have had snow in the U.K this May, however this is blossom.
The magnificent Winchester Cathedral, never fails to amaze me.
Enjoy you’re weekends whatever you do, they are very precious.
And before I get told of again, a few of the above photographs are my husbands!
Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.
Sometimes you just come across something that fits perfectly into your way of living. I have loved the Industrial vintage style of home decor for a long time now. It’s the no fuss, hardwearing style that I love. A home for me has to be lived in and not too precious, that way everyone who crosses your door feels relaxed.
Firstly take a look at the home of Mark Bentham and Laura Lane, absolutely beautiful.
I could sit in this kitchen for hours, extremely stylish and oh so usable and welcoming.
Now head on over to their amazing web store Uniche interiors where you will find almost all the items in the pictures above and more.
A message from their web store says.
Our home is a stage around which our lives unfold. How we set that stage is an extension of who we are. We believe style is individual, not ordinary. If your rooms are for living in, sofas are for sprawling on, battered is best and old is beautiful, then our vintage inspired pieces are for you.
Be creative and choose a statement piece to fit in with you’re living space, or work the full look throughout, anything goes..
Here is another excerpt from the web site that I particularly like,
Home is where the heart is… Keep your heart happy…
We at Uniche think you should treat your home as you would your friends. After all, you enjoy spending time in the company of your pad, getting that warm secure feeling whenever you’re together, surrounded by familiarity and things that you love.
But it’s not all take, sometimes you’ve got to give, you have to cheer your friends up and reassure them, buy them a box of chocolates and tell them they look great!
What better way to perk up your pad than with the gift of a present!
Think of Uniche as a sweetie shop for your home. Treat them to a mouth watering selection of quirky vintage inspired furniture, of unique accessories and unusual lighting.
Whether your friend is a warehouse apartment in London or a cottage in the country, buy them something special to show them how much you care… That’s what good friends do…
How could you resist? Head on over to their web site and drool away.
