Our Style

Having spent the last couple of weeks announcing when I was going to the loo and whistling loudly, I now have a door with knobs!  These glass knobs are so pretty (I also got some for the bedroom door).

My mum asked what decorating style I was going for, I thought for a short while and then answered 'eclectic'.  I think that's the posh way of saying 'a bit of this and a bit of that'.  Our home is going to be made up of stuff we have, stuff we like, stuff we've inherited, stuff we've been given and stuff we've found/recycled.  I say stuff because none of it is expensive but it is precious because altogether it makes up our style.   All of it nice but a bit frayed and tattered round the edges, a bit like me and Pete!!!!
This week I have been creating my own version of sun dried tomatoes.  I have a dehydrator that my son bought me last year for my birthday and I also have a glut of tomatoes.  So I dried some plum tomatoes and then popped them into garlic olive oil.  Heaven!  will be using them for all sorts of things if I can only stop eating them straight from the jar!

Ah Fran, eclectic is the best as everything you have has a story and says something about you. Since you are lovely, it will be lovely too! I like the glass knobs :)

Fran said...

Val - thank you, you are lovely yourself. And you are right, stories to tell the now very imminent grandchild! Xxx

You lucky bunny, a dehydrator! A bit of this and that also suits us two as well.

Fran said...

Kay - I have you down as an eclectic sort of gal too xxx

DC - I know I am, I was so chuffed and it just shows how well my kids know me to know that I would love it! Xxx

Ah Fran you make wise choices in everything that goes onboard and similarly with the Tomatoes which is excellent food for the pancreas.

That is a lovely knob. At the cabin, I only have two doors, and both of those are sliding glass ones. Inside we only have curtains in two of the doorways. Our loo is around a corner and out of sight, so it has only an open doorway. With just the two of us, things are pretty basic. - Margy

Hi Fran !
Is this a eclectic doorknob ? -:)

Fran said...

Mel - and they taste good! X

Margy - I didn't mind with just two of us, but we have a steady stream of visitors and then it gets a bit more difficult! Xxx

In - of course, who else has glass knobs in their kitchen!! Xxx
