A house a home

I am finally moving house on Friday 11th February 2011, this has been on the cards since September and I am so happy that it's finally come around. ***Excited happy dance**** I am excited to be living somewhere that will have stairs, a garden, an attic, storage space,a summer house  *ahem* art studio :-)

The house itself is lovely too, built in the 1890s it's a stone miners cottage with fireplaces in most rooms and a lovely countryside feel even though it it on the edge of a big city.

I've lived with my boyfriend in a small city flat for 2 years now and before that I was in house shares for 5 years so this will be a big change. So I will be offline for a week or so we have lots to do including getting the internet connected up but I will be back with far too many photographs of our new home to show you soon :-)

I have started to get quite excited about the idea of decorating the house, I mean I have been in rented accommodation for so long where decorating is just not an option that I haven't really ever thought about it.

I made a treasury on Etsy called 'A house a home' (above) and you can view it closer here.

On the idea of home decorating I came across this company Confettisystem they make amongst other things the most AAAAMMAZING garlands...I would love to have one in my home but I think I would have to save my pennies for a bit...One can dream right??!

I came across Confetti system via this post on the decor8 blog

Bye for now people!
