New Uses

Simply Save

Last time I sold clothes at Clothes Mentor they gave me a flier for one of their new stores called New Uses. You can sell all sorts of home goods to New Uses, and like Clothes Mentor they pay cash! Anything from holiday decorations, games, electronics, small furniture, small appliances, home decor etc. I’ve been making a pile in the basement for a garage sale this summer but dread the work that a garage sale entails, so tonight I loaded a majority of it into my car to take to New Uses tomorrow. Even if they take just some of it, it will take a weight off my shoulders!

This store would also be awesome if you’re looking to purchase some new things for your home at a good price! See if there’s one near you!

Lighting the Way x

Maison Bentley Style


In my dreams there’s an Abigail Ahern chandelier hanging over my dining room table.  Scrap that – we’re talking dreams..they’ll be two! (and a reinforced ceiling) This one has my heart – it’s made from tiny squares of porcelain that would gently glow on a dark winters night. But at £15,050 a light (the extra £50 tickles my sensibilities) it remains firmly on the once-I’ve-won-the-lottery-lust-list…


There’s also this one (at a mere £2,750) which makes me want to break open the kid’s air-drying clay and get creative.  The truth is Abigail’s whole aesthetic makes me want to squeal..the dark, brooding colours with the unexpected pops of colour, the quirky touches and an underlining sense of humour that spontaneously make me smile with pure pleasure.


So it’s rather wonderful that she’s teamed up with Debenhams to design a range especially for them…


I laugh!


For the study?


Guarding the front door?

More paint colors for 2014


Here is another Houzz article about popular paint colors for 2014.  This article has quite a few more options showcased than the article I linked to previously.

The hues are fantastic in my opinion and are giving me ideas to repaint my office/craft room, which is currently a camel color that I’ve grown tired of.

I’m thinking of using something similar to the Valspar Winter in Paris as an overall color and then adding an accent color of Valspar Night Scape.  This is a room that you see when you first walk into my house so I’d really like to make it look unique but without being too trendy.
