Can we talk Instagram Stories, my honeybuns? Yesterday was my first hesitant foray into using them and I have so many questions!! ❤️
.
Do you use them? Do you chat into your phone? And how long before you felt less like an awkward pudding 🤗😰 talking to your phone.... 😲😂😆
.
I'm just asking for a...ahem.... friend. 🤗😵🤣🤣

What a lovely feeling it is when you get to tick off your ticklist 🤗😆. Appointments booked ✔️, household items ordered ✔️ (eek! 😍), meetings planned ✔️...
.
Of course, we all know there'll be a whole new list tomorrow 📝⏰ but let's not talk about that now...? 🤣😎
.
What about you, my gorgeousses, are you a ticklist kind of person? Or do you prefer to roll with what life throws you? 😅🎁💝

Several of you gorgeous Instalovelies 💗💗 have asked me for more details on making new pine doors look old... ⏳⌛💥
.
Here's a quick tutorial:
.
First, you need to buy your doors. You'll get the most authentic finish if you pick doors that are built in a traditional way. 🛒🚪
.
Next rub your door all over with a caustic soda solution. This will raise the grain of the wood, giving it that aged textured look you're after. Don't be afraid of being rough. The odd ding will only add to the aged feel. ⚒️🔨😌
.
Once the door is dry, give it a coat of Antique Pine Wax. 🖌️
.
Choose simple, timeless doorknobs and Bob's your uncle!!! A magically aged door!!! 😍😍😘 Enjoy and feel smug forever after 💗💗💗.

Just looking back at a moodboard I put together for a client whose outside space 🌼💮🌸 I designed quite a few years back...and then I realised that this scheme still works perfectly now. It hasn't dated one jot!
.
I love Modern Country Style 💗💗💗. I've loved it for years and years...You only have to look way back at my Modern Country Style blog to see how well it blossoms over passing time.

Have you heard of Jinny Blom? She's a Garden Designer Extraordinaire 🌼💮🌸🏆and I'm a little bit in love with her gardens ❤️. You can see more of this particular garden over on Modern Country Style now (link in bio 😌☝️).
.
This is Modern Country gardening at its best. Gorgeously soft planting 🌿🥀🌱 with a firm contemporary structure 🌳. It's UTTERLY delicious, don't you think?

Awkward: When you have five minutes to get yourself together for the school run this morning, and you find out too late that your littlest has previously played with your makeup brushes and the black eyeshadow. Yup, that's not two black eyes I'm sporting today. This is makeup made by parenting. ❤️😌😎 Awesome: when your littlest wants to play makeup with you and you get to sit there for a good five minutes having your face stroked and your hair brushed. Better than the smartest spa in the world. 😊🤗😋

Guess what? We're just about to have a meeting with our architect about the next stage in our renovation adventure. Eeeek! 🏠💞... I'm very VERY excited about the next phase of our renovation adventure!!! .
You can remind me of this post in six months time when I'm tearing my hair out because of the building dust everywhere. Yup, I called it an adventure 🤣🤣💝💝 !!! .
But today? Today, my gorgeousses, I feel the thrill.😎🌞
