Saturday Spot: Our House Tour…

May 18th, 2011 · 16 Comments

I am having a madly busy week and just couldn’t think how I would get any blogging in and then I was totally blown away by a friend popping round for a visit…


And we love guests, the gate was swung open with gusto… and they were led up the stairs…

Led is a euphemism for dragged with enthusiasm!!!

And if you are looking for a grand tour… then welcome in…

Just click on the picture and go… go… go… please go and say hi to my Blog friend, who has the most adorable children in Cape Town… Who did the most amazing house tour… of our house!!!

Travelling Tuesday_ A Jump, Skip & a {Blog} Hop

I love it… me I would still be tidying the house for the photographs and clearing all the surfaces… oh dear!!! Our house is just right the way it is, kind of lived in. Packed with kids and not nearly as hectic as folk imagine it to be. I love what she has to say…

    Thanks Zoe, It is really hard to find a patch of white around here!!! Actually I did find a white wall in the garage last week, behind a pile of boxes that have been sitting in front of it since we moved in!!! Thanks for taking a look and have a great day!!!

    Are you looking at your house in a different way now? They sound lovely visitors. I love your wall colours. I started painting our house with strong colours, but it just didn’t work. It looks wonderful in your home.

    Hi Cheryl, Oh these were such fun visitors, my kids loved them to bits!!! And yes it is so interesting to see your house through someone else’s eyes!!! I think some houses can take bright funky paint better than others. When we moved in ALL the walls were various shades of off white, it was really hideous… and grotty brown carpeting on top of orange on top of grey on top of… I hope you have a fun week!!!

    […] We live on the slopes of a mountain over looking the sea… Our house is a brick home, one of the houses on the slope of that mountain. I imagine it is pretty much like your home… we have a lounge and a kitchen, two bedrooms, a bathroom and a surrounding garden. You can take a look at our home on this house tour a friend did for us.
