I'm Nina, a photographer, film maker and forever wanderer.  Passionate about nature, the great outdoors and all of life's adventures.  This is the place where I keep all my 'field notes'

Home making






I'm not normally one to 'flash' my home in regular posts.  The bits that are viewed are normally us in the process of doing something like making, baking, the kids in the midst of creating a mess in general or prancing around giving me a jolly good old belly laugh that sends me grabbing for my camera to capture it all...if I catch them in time - speed is not one of my good points. These are the teeny tiny parts of our home that look half decent.

But with the wet weather washing over us these past couple of months I've spent an enormous amount of time indoors, at home.....decorating.

I was never one to sit idle - reading is my most lazy of laziness so I've been giving our shabby little home a bit of a face lift....just because.

Gone is the blue in the kitchen and we now have green.  The pantry has been (half) wallpapered - I'm hoping to finish it by the end of the month.  Grandma's old welsh blanket has been brought down from the loft - though I'm still not sure if it's a little too bright for our pastel'ish' home. And I've painted a patch on the pantry door with blackboard paint because frustration hit an all time high around Christmas time trying to remember each and every thing.

I'd like to give the whole house a repaint if I'm being totally honest, but I'm also half hoping the weather will change so I can get outside again because even though home making can be a satisfying thing it can also 'really' bore the pants off me too.


ps. do you like my new motto for this year...BE WONDERFUL!  I know I can be.
