I'm a 1661 woman - sixteen from behind, sixty one from the front! I'm of the baby boom generation. Loved the fab sixties - which I experienced in London - I was a flower child - thought love would change the world - brought my children up in the country - back in London for the 2nd summer of love in the eighties - danced all night again - wonderful! Now in Devon looking forward to the adventure of old age - bring it on! hahaha

A tour around my sitting room.

As I really enjoy looking at the interiors of other bloggers' homes, I am continuing the tour of mine.

I have posted below pictures taken of my sitting room and dining area. I have split the whole thing up into not one, not two but NINE separate posts - I don't know if they will all fit onto one page, you may have to hunt for the lower ones in the archives or something. That's if you haven't died with boredom before then.

I have a lot of 'stuff' in my home. I pay very little for each item, which is usually a boot fair or charity shop find, but I treasure each thing for as long as that item is meant to stay. When the time comes I will let it go, to live with someone else, so that I can make more room for more recent finds.

As you will notice if you read the text, Dons is the BEST person with whom to go treasure hunting. She can see a tiny bit of something poking out of a load of rubbish and she'll just know that that is the very thing which will become a much loved and cherished possession.

Hello GOW! What a lovely lovely home you have....I laughed when I got to that Habitat plate which you say is a little more contemporary? - do you mean 1960? Everything in your house is wonderful. Like Letty, I love the icebucket and the sofa is FANTASTIC!
