Do you fancy coming to the Battersea Antiques Fair today?

Am off up to London for the afternoon and unfortunately my partner in crime for these outings - my friend Miss J is not well and cannot come so if anyone would like to join me at the Battersea Decorative Antiques Fair this afternoon you'd be most welcome... I have a spare ticket and we can meet outside... Just email me and let me know.
If you cannot make it not to worry... will tell you all about it in a couple of days.  Definitely going to see my boys from  FONTAINE  there too - can't wait.

Very late back to class (and the cottage new paint finish)

So, may I officially wish you all a very happy and healthy 2013.  And say how sorry I am that I am so late with these sentiments.
Anyway, here I am back again in England after an wonderful month in Melbourne with Mr NT and my daughter - she is now back at University in Durham and I am in our little cottage in the West Country.

Remember a while back in the Autumn the house was being painted?  Well, here is the finished product which I have to say is one hundred percent better than the before photograph which was as follows :

One very sad cottage in dire need of a face lift

And now, all finished and smart ....

Close up of the front door - Farrow and Ball's Downpipe is the colour 

So, there we are - amazing what some paint can do to make a transformation but the whole job did take quite a while with lots of preparation work first.  Have to say though I am really delighted.

Now have to work on a few more small projects inside - will keep you informed as to what and when!
