here's some rather un-flattering pics of our soon to be new home. i know - you are totally in love with the  this decor. i might just keep it as it is, including that purple carpet.

somehow these estate agent pics intrigued me enough to warrant a closer inspection and although it is not necessarily our dream house it will eventually, and with lashings of love, be a home.

it's an unusual terrace house in a small village on the norfolk/suffolk border which has been in the same family for over 150 years. there is a small garden which quite excitingly backs on to the local allotment site so there will be plenty of gardening for me.

it's going to be so refreshing to get away from the hubbub of the city and have some light, space and peace around us. there are lots of long country walks to be had and most importantly lots of pubs to check out!

this is the face of my new studio, tres chic, no?! 

i will be sure to keep my camera close by me so i can get some good before and after shots. it could get a little hairy as we will be camping out in there with basic amenities (no internet heating or fridge) for a couple of weeks whilst we decorate.

i do love a project and can't wait to get started...bring it on!

it's on!

so, just when we'd given up hope and decided to go and look at some other houses something quite unexpected happened - we exchanged contracts on the house we have spent forever (well, four months) trying to buy! we are officially getting the keys next week and I will be away for a month in a frenzy of decorating and lugging boxes so I wanted to let people know that prints will be unavailable for order from thursday 13th october until somewhere around the middle of november. If you have been thinking about buying any prints - particularly for christmas - it may be worth ordering them now as  (let's hope not) I may get stuck with no internet for a while. just a thought.

as a special house moving celebratory treat i'm offering blog readers an extra 10% off of everything in the shop from today through to thursday 13th. all you need to do is enter the code 'movinhouse' in the coupon code box when you make your payment!

now, for more packing...
