we are having some lovely weather

In the evening it has been cold enough to have the wood burner on.
tomorrow we will be taking down the Christmas tree ready for the New year and the builders will be back to plaster so afterwards I will pick out some stone to go behind the fireplace. I was thinking something like this but in a different color.

Then the builders will come and put a wall up and I will have a small entrance hall for shoes coats etc no more shoes in the house
I would love something like these
I have been drinking the ginger beer I made it is really tasty I was told not to drink too much.

I think I like the last one the most but would be happy with the first one. so these are some of my plans for inside the house in 2012
In the garden
  • planted out the African daises in the garden on a slope.
  • planted the Dianthus in pots

  • planted some more stocks in toilet roll pots another 14

  • planted some cape gooseberries and sedum rock garden seeds.


  1. I'm excited for's so nice when our homes have those little extras that make it work much better for us. I have something similar to this in my entry hall now with a bench and cubby's. You're gonna love it!
    Happy New Year!!

  2. Great pictures! Can't wait to see the finished product! (It's me-connie in Japan-I moved my blog)

  3. Like your choice of stone for behind the wood stove...mud rooms are a great thing...leave the messy shoes and boots in their own space along with coats jackets and sports equipment!

    I like that the recycled water from the reservoir can be used for gardens and such!

  4. good plans and love the stone backing...

  5. the stone backing looks lovely!

    glad to see those winter blooms, too!

    wishing you the best for 2012!

  6. Your plans sound wonderful! Love the beautiful bright flowers you shared today too!

  7. Love those early morning pink dawns. Beautiful.
