Transformation Thursday....new year, new injections of colour

Once the Christmas decorations came down, I really enjoyed putting decorative accessories back where they belonged in the living room.

I also had a few sale bargains and boxed up pieces to swap in. I do seem to gravitate towards grey and pink in this room! It might be my textile background, which means I have a weakness for mixing and layering prints. 

I'm very pleased with our new crochet foot stool, though it's huge! That'll teach me not to pay attention to dimensions. 

A few new pieces, or just moving things around can easily freshen up a room. I love Achica.com for bargain buys, especially for rugs, cushions and lighting.

Expectations and Anticipation.....Happy New Year!

Although I don't set New Years resolutions, I do like any excuse to tell myself I will be super organised, start a new fitness regime, and generally conquer the world. 

My fitness is taken care of by the school run, which is a couple of miles a day in total for me at least. I was shocked to discover that our calendar is a two year one, and I'd copied the entire events schedule from school into it-result! So I am a bit organised it turns out.

This year I'm really excited to launch new Lettie Belle products and designs! I've applied for a couple of selling shows, and can't wait to see LB grow. For me, 2013 was about family, and being fixated on moving house, and getting Scarlett into school simultaneously. I didn't have much time to work, and that was fine, but as a family we start this year very happily settled and ready to go!

I can't wait to see what this year brings, and wish you all a very happy and healthy 2014!
