"I Can Dream Can't I?"







Having lived in and enjoyed a 100 year old villa early on in our married life, I can certainly appreciate the sense of space these wonderful old buidings afford, with the wonderful high ceilings and over-sized bedrooms. If we ever have the opportunity to build (again) I would most certianly include these features in my new home but with the convenience and practicality of modern, low maintenance materials.

Hi Ange, thanks for the comment on my blog. Yes we have quite a bit in common and I have to say that not too many people I meet are as house proud as I am. So nice to meet someone on the save wave length. Your chairs are gorgeous as well and you sound like me and have a chair fettish. I was thinking about tackling the upholstery myself but I am happy for you to do it (thats if your interested). Anyway if you want to hook up one day for a coffee just let me know.
