House-hunting Part Deux

As I said, I have a lot of news on the house-hunting front. Last time I wrote about it was....oh yes. The big not-quite-finished-being-built house in the country. Well, that was a lifetime ago!

10 Months later...

Eh, hi everyone *waves*'s been a while...sorry about that. Life, you know?

I just read over my last post and I guess the best place to start back here is to compare my plans for 2013 to the reality of 2013, right?

Happy Post-Apocalypse, Christmas, New Year etc

Sorry folks, it's been a busy few weeks here at Chez Finding Home what with the whole getting married, mini-moon, Christmas, etc, so the poor blog has been put on the end of a very long finger!

Step by Step: Double Flower Topper

Well, well, it's been a busy few days for me so I haven't had a chance to update you guys on everything I've been up to. I do have a few wedding-related projects in the works that I can share with you in 23 days (!) but not until then (sorry, but I can't be giving everything away before the big day or there'll be no surprises left). I do, however, have this lovely little tutorial for you to brighten up what is a dark and dismal Monday here in Cork.

Okay, so first things first - what will you need?

Love: Teal

I really do love the colour teal, so much so that it's our main wedding colour! There's just something so...calm about it. It reminds me of the deepest parts of the ocean, the great below. I also love, love, love Etsy so I thought I'd put together a collection of gorgeous teal pieces sourced only from Etsy sellers*. The best part? Everything here is under €50, so if you're looking for a lovely Christmas gift, look no further!

Not good news, not bad news...

Just no news.

Had an appointment to find out more about the lovely cyst brothers yesterday. It went a little like this...

DIY Yarn Lightshade

Have you guys discovered Pinterest yet? I'm totally addicted.
Every time I pop on there I find another 50 projects that I just have to do and some of them are so simple. There're a few projects on there that come up time and time again and I keep telling myself that I must get around to soon. The other night Big Guy had a lot of catching up to do on the Sky+ box and I figured that it was as good a time as any for me to get stuck into one of the pins that I see all the time and looks easy-peasy. (It also helps that our current bedroom lightshade is YACK and dirty and seriously needs replacing).
