One thing leads to another

It started innocently enough when I was looking for a place for this pretty thrifted lamp - I teamed it with a shade I'd had for some time and it's my absolute (current) favourite.



It looked just perfect in this spot.

Unfortunately nothing else did any more, a drastic re-arrange was necessary. So a shelf which once looked like this...

now looks like this



Goodbye chintz, hello red!

I loved this bright new look, for a couple of weeks, anyway - then along came this...



It's all different again now - but that's for another post!

Thank you for all the lovely comments on my last few posts, I might have to admit defeat this time and not manage to get back to everyone, hope you'll forgive me!

  3. Everything looks great and isn't it fun rearranging it all? I am definitely into a red phase at the mo and even found some bright red rubber gloves in Ikea for my new kitchen! I love that handkerchief vase too.

  4. I love it all, from the pretty floral chintz to the dramatic reds. I so wish I could find such pretty canisters here in the States. I look and look in all the antique shops but never find any quite as pretty as yours. What fun it must be to rearrange all of your pretty things and create a totally new look.

  16. What lovely red-ness! It's such a jolly colour to decorate with. I'm not sure if I've visited before, but have now put your blog on bookmark and look forward to further jolly visits. Happy days.

  17. Hi Lucy,
    I have always been a big fan of red, so love your new look shelves...glad to see your next new look has some red roses in it...
    At least you don't have to worry about dusting, when you change your displays around so much! ha! There seems to be a lot of this going on in Blogland at the moment...it must be spring!
    Have a lovely weekend,
    Niki

  19. I do love red but you have me intrigued to see how things changed when you got the new "fabric"!

  20. To see all your knick-knacks is like travelling through time. The chintz having a 1930/40s feel and the red a 1950/60s feel. You really do have some lovely things Lucy. x
