Lets go away....

{Image from here}

The story goes a bit like this..........
Girl says "how do you fancy a night away near the coast?" Boy says "what have you bought this time?"

This is part of the coversation that Mr FF and I had last night. I have bought a few pieces of furniture which are in a place that is a five hour drive from where we live.

So I commenced my search for somewhere to stay. This was by no means an easy task as I could not find anything that I liked, not that I am fussy!

We also will be taking a trailer which means that we really do need parking so this narrowed down by search as a lot of the places that I loved were in the middle of villages.

I finally found what looks to be a fabulous place in the country and we are booked in for next Thursday night. I promise to take lots of photos and tell you all about it....

I had better get back to my painting, work is progressing well on my wee shop and I have finished the walls and am now onto painting furniture with some fabulous farrow and ball colours.

Will tell you more about this tomorrow!
A demain

  6. Am painting three rooms at the moment, in Farrow and Ball. Slipper Satin, Pointing and Off-White with a little touch of Pavilion Grey in one room. I can't wait to see what colours you have chosen. I find it difficult to choose as they have such wonderful colours.
    Happy furniture hunting and I can't wait to see the photos. XXXX
