Corners of My Home

Inspired by the Corners of My Home pool on Flickr I decided to have some fun doing a few of my own.

Bedside Table.
Old story books 50 cents each at a carboot market. Wooden figure $2 in Vinnie's (great for storing jewellery). Other items as previously posted.

Kitchen shelves.
The letters (my sons' initials) were chipboard letters I bought in Spotlight and painted with chalkboard paint. The cute Wedgwood style salt and pepper shakers were an eBay purchase. The goblets as
previously posted.

Sideboard in Living Room.
In reality most of my stuff is pushed back out of the reach of the kids, all books are up high out of reach of my youngest, AKA "The Shredder", ornaments and glassware are pushed well back out of the reach of my middle boy who treats a lot of things as he would a ball, as in throwing them!! So I had fun while they napped moving things about to how I would like them arranged
. I love this arrangement, FREE typewriter, $5 vase and $5 lamp. I will be doing a few more corners so watch this space!

Love the wood figurine and your use of it! And the vase is also a fave - looks neat next to industrial typewriter....

am glad to hear that these perfect looking corners are not normally so perfect - i get so intimidated by mothers with spotless looking 'just so' houses. v nice to fantasise and share perfection on the blog even if just for a moment! xx
