LSNED days 20-21-22

Day 20: If I think about what kind of defines me or what is my signature or what is just me- It would most definitely be -florals...whenever there is a choice to be  made.I can't help it, I always go for florally stuff.
When I first got married 30 something years ago, the one thing I soooo wanted was Laura Ashley florally/cherry curtains in my kitchen...I managed to find a pic on google images that is almost the same as they were....I' ve always been a florally/swirly type of girl. My latest Cath Kidston cushions are not that dissimilar !



Day 21: There are still signs of summer hanging around especially when the sun comes out for a while- and upgrading my phone was such a good idea....

Day 22: This year things are not so easy as they have been in the past couple of years for me.There are changes around me with more boys leaving home for their new lives and my Dad's not so good and is having quite a trying time of it lately. I'm hoping that I have the mix just about right and am managing to still spend time with my favourite hobby - preserving those memories be them good,bad or inbetween- so - no regrets on any front really...hopefully I am being a good mum, good daughter, good wife and good employee!

I remember treating myself and buying a Laura Ashley catalogue all those years ago - I poured over it!

I hope the scrapbooking does really help with those changes Denise x

I fully understand you, when you say you're trying to get a good mix in your life, and I think you really do have good attitude, and that helps. Yup, I'm a bit of a florals girl myself

I was a real Laura Ashley lover as well.....in the days before it was so expensive!

Seems like we have reached an age when there are many changes afoot, some good and some bad, but each change brings us more strength to carry on and adapt.
I also loved all the Laura Ashley florals that were around back in the early 80s, can remember decorating our bedroom in total Laura Ashley, wallpaper, curtains, cushions etc!

Our first house was a whole Laura Ashley house and I still love that style. My girlie is definitely a Cath Kidston girle.

I'm loving that 'Shiny Head Club' LO...what a gorgeous photo of you both...shiny head or no!!! You're doing a grand job of keeping up with LSNED...I'm still in catch-up mode from 2010!! Have a great day on Saturday! :)
