For a long time now I have been dreaming of putting a small extension on the back of our house just off the kitchen.
This little extension needs to be mud room, laundry room, bathroom and dog bedroom.
I want it to have a barn door and beadboard panelling just like this. I even have a chunkier version of the same dog!
I want my husband to make me some of these Ballard Designs drying racks.
A lovely window overlooking the garden, plenty of shelving and counter space plus of course a loo!
And somewhere for the shoes, boots and coats that seem to take over my house.
This dream is a long way off but I've been buying some little bits ready for it..
A Laundry Soap vinyl decal from Shelley at the House of Smiths
an antique french zinc flower pot from this shop on Etsy which I'm using as a laundry soap scoop
And a sign which I used to sell in my shop and would sell out really quickly every time.
In the UK we use the word trousers for pants and for us pants are underwear so the older ladies who used to come in the shop always giggled at this sign.
Although in our house we don't really need this sign as my kids (and my husband) drop their pants wherever they are!
I'm off to London in the morning for the weekend.
I'm taking Lily and one of her friends to see Glee on tour so we are all really excited.
We're going to go to the Natural History Museum tomorrow which I love going to and for tea we are going to Planet Hollywood and then on Sunday we'll be seeing the show.
I'm sure I'll have lost my voice by the time I get home.
Hope you all have a great weekend.
