In the last couple of weeks we've made some really big decisions, we decided to scrap our ideas of extending our current home and put our house on the market, our house sold in just six days and we are now in the process of buying the house of our dreams. The new house is in a different area to where we currently live so we'll be moving away from family and friends and also moving Riley to a different school which is a little daunting but we're confident that it's the right thing to do.
Our new house is still being built but I couldn't resist starting to buy a few new bits ready for when we move in which should be around mid August time, here's what I've picked up so far.
There's nothing better than a great smelling house and I'm a big fan of reed diffusers as I think the scent lasts a really long time so I picked up the absolutely gorgeous Orla Kiely Sicilian Lemon Reed Diffuser. Not only does it smell amazing it looks great too, I love the Climbing Daisy design and I know it's going to look so pretty in our new home. Orla Kiely has just re-released her collection with six beautiful statement prints and three exciting new fragrances which are also available as candles, you can buy them now in John Lewis, House of Fraser and Fenwick.
The next item I got was the super cute Cream Welly Vase from George at Asda, it's perfect for our new house as we're going for a country cottage decor theme in the kitchen and I thought this would look really cute on the windowsill or dining table.
Next up is an item also from George at Asda, the Bee Happy Sign, this was one of those spur of the moment purchases, I'm not sure exactly where I'm going to put it but I really like it, I'm sure we'll find a place for it once we've moved in.
I thought this Heart Shaped Slate Sign from Matalan would look really pretty hung in the garden once we've finished giving it a bit of a makeover and it was a bargain for just £3.00.
The last item is the Floral Print Peg Bag which is also from Matalan, I needed a new peg bag as mine are currently in an old carrier bag and I thought this was cute and super cheap at just £4.00.
That's everything I've bought so far but I'm sure there will be many more purchases to come so if you like these kind of posts stay tuned for more soon and also some photos of the progress of our new home as it comes together.
