I suppose picture taking in the dark is not the best idea...........BUT I just knew I would forget to take them during the day ( which I did ) so I had not choice I tell you. I HAD NO CHOICE.
Today has been one of those gorgeous Autumn days, a splash of Christmas decoration shopping, and a wander round Stourhead gardens. A brisk walk, ooohing and aaaahing at the changing colours of the leaves, finding cutesy little cottages we want to live in, giggling at daft swans bobbing bottoms up in the lakes......mittens on, red noses. Perfect.
Sorry, back to dark pictures.
I love my home, I truly do, but just sometime I have a freak out. With two growing girls, space is a huge issue.
As parents we compromise all the time...in this house we go a little further. The bumblebee's have the big bedroom of a 2 bedroomed cottage.
It makes sense. They have more "stuff " than we do. They make more mess than we do.
( though I will hanker after their bedroom until I get it...........one day...........sigh )
So we are tucked snuggly into a teeny tiny bedroom..............whilst they can play at starfish on their bedroom floor. Tis what we do innit? Anyway...their room...ahhhhhhhhh their room, is ever so lovely if I do say so myself. Though, we still struggle with storage, and always will. That's the choice we made in buying this house, so don't feel bad for us, it's fine, we are happy!!!
Desk storage was needed. Hours go by when those crazy girls sit there playing schools, writing storys, doodling............but they needed MORE space ( what's new? )

I love them, cheap easy affordable.
The bumblebee's chose their paint colours........pom pom trim, ....ready......set.....go.
Such a cute little space. I can't tell you how grown up they feel, and how much better is that, than going to Ikea ( I'm not knocking it, I'm it's biggest fan.....Example. Popped in to LOOK at Christmas wrapping paper.....spent £70 ) and having a shelf like everyone else?
And by the way....who dosnt like a pom pom trim? ( If you just put your hand up, seriously? What are you doing here at florenceandrose?????? )
