Jacinta Preston – #7 Vignettes judge for September
The themes for 7 Vignettes seem to get more challenging each month. Jen Bishop, from the Interiors Addict, has a creative mind….no question. I considered not playing along this month, but it’s impossible to watch all the creative entries coming up in my instagram feed and not want to join in. Here are my entries for September.
The entries for 7 vignettes are truly inspiring and creative. Such an incredible bunch of talented ladies….and a few men. Next month i’m aiming for a more minimal approach. I’m going to try to keep my vignettes as simple as possible. Well, that’s the plan anyway…. 😉 Please feel welcome to follow me on Instagram and join in the 7 Vignettes fun!!
We drove to Millthorpe again today. The short 2 hr drive makes a day trip quite doable, without completely wearing everyone out. Johno planted new hedges in the front garden and hung some more pictures and mirrors in the house. He had to use a drill today! For anyone who knows my husband, this is a big deal. I’m talking masonry drill bits, wall anchors and hooks. He did a great job and it looked exhausting, so i was really glad it was him and not me. That said, i didn’t spend the day lazing by the fire (i wish!). I made beds, unpacked kitchen gear, reorganised the parlour and helped measure out drilling points.
I discovered today that i might be addicted to red. I knew i liked red, but after looking around Winterfell today it’s quite clear that an addiction is forming. There are splashes of red throughout the main living area and parlour. I’m quite conservative, so i guess this is my way of adding some colour. I really do LOVE it. And it was the red door of Winterfell that got my attention in the first place.
My inner critic was louder than usual today, so i had to try extra hard to squash it. Sometimes i wonder why i am so critical of myself and the things i do. I question every little detail in the house and i want it to be perfect. Of course, nothing and noone is perfect, so i reassured myself today with this logic. And really, i’m not an interior designer. I have no skill in this area, so it’s time to lighten up and not be so hard on myself. With all that said, i’ve been completely unhappy with the parlour. It was too busy and was full of vintage and antique gear, which is great, but there was too much of it. So today i did a reshuffle and moved stuff out of the parlour and into the bedrooms and stuff out of the bedrooms and into the parlour. I’m feeling much happier about it now. I just need a nice coffee table….
Here is a sneak peak of the parlour. And where did the kids spend the day?…..lazing by the fire. 🙂
