Our home - Recent buys

With the house renovation currently in slow motion I have felt like a spare part. As I mentioned in my last post it still doesn't seem real that we have bought a house and I can't imagine us living there. Maybe because it's still so bare and it feels like we've been working on it for forever? I don't know, it's hard to describe. I know that once we are in there, making memories it will quickly start feeling like home.

Having idle hands I've turned to shopping and I've been buying little bits and pieces for our new home. I am scrolling through eBay and local buy and sell pages every night trying to spot some last minute bargains. I have bought a few pieces of furniture on eBay which I intend to repaint, upcycle and blog about soon.

But for now here are some of my recent home decor buys-

Heart alarm clock - B&M bargains - £2.99

Family Rules sign - The Range - £15

Shabby chic frame - B&M Bargain - £9.99

I love all three and as they were all so cheap I could justify the spend. The clock and the picture frame are both going into our bedroom but I am still undecided about where to put the sign. 

What do you think of my recent buys? Where is your favourite store for home decor? 


  1. They are gorgeous! I love your style x

  3. That frame is so beautiful!! And I love the sign, it's very sweet. Bet it would look great in a lounge :)

  4. The first thing we did when we closed on the house was to rent a hotel for a week, then have the inside of the house painted, carpeted, and power washed. When we moved in the following week it was worth the wait. The house looked brand new and we could not have been any happier with the results of the work.
