7 Random Things!

Inspired by creature comforts post I thought I would let you into my little world for just one day!!

This is hard! Hard finding 7 random things of interest and hard finding a pic of me that I don’t mind posting here for everyone to see!! Ah well here goes!

1. I REALLY want my own business!! I just need to do something about it and lets hope that this year is the year?? I would love a little shop somewhere selling vintage, handmade, beautiful, eco friendly gifts and products for the home.
2. I live with my beautiful, wonderful boyfriend James who is always there to encourage me and look after me.
3. I love spending time with my friends, especially if it involves eating fabulous food in a fabulous it a nice restaurant with a log fire in the winter or a picnic in the park in the summer. I am my most happy with my friends around me.
4. I REALLY want a dog!!!! I am actually broody for a dog. There is no other way of describing it! Whenever I see a dog walking down the street or even on the TV. I turn into a ridiculous gooey mess and start making cooing noises that are not very attractive it has to be said!
5. I over-think and over-design projects without getting them off the ground. The end result is always a day spent reading about other peoples projects and never starting my own. The possibility of all it overwhelms me!!! I don't know why I am so hard on myself really. I don't work from home, instead I commute to my design Job in London everyday from Hampshire. I leave the house at 7:30am and generally get home at 7:30pm so, as you can see this leaves very little time for my own projects!!
6. I love colour it is actually my life! Especially the combination of coral, teal, turquoise, blue, orange and green.
7. If I could live anywhere in the world it would be Amsterdam. I would buy a house and decorate it just like this. And buy a bike and cycle everywhere!!

Do it! Do them all :-) You can. You only live once and you'll never regret what you DID do, more what you DIDNT do...

Oh, how fun to learn a little more about you! I am right there with you on that color combination. I have two dogs and I still want more, they are both adopted and everything I walk by the shelter I want another one. They bring so much joy to my life and I think you should just bite the bullet and get one ( or two!).

thank you for letting us into your world. i very much identify with the desire to have a shop that sells vintage things!

Hello! I don't usually comment randomly on people's blogs but you sound so like me I had to! I am obsessed with getting a dog too and dream of my own little shop selling eco things and pretty things and vintage things. I started my own business online so if you want to know anything please ask! I also over think things and spend way too much time researching rather than actually doing. I was just thinking that's what I've done today so quite comforting to come across someone else who does the same! Anyway, love your blog, and nice to meet you! Tara :o)

I just found your blog and already I heart you. :P I know what you mean about ovethinking projects and not getting around to them. I do the same, in fact I'm doing it right now. I took a break from a project, but will probably spend the rest of the day admiring other's finished projects. lol.

ahh.. #5 is me. I hate to admit it b/c normally I'm such a nice girl..but..It really makes me feel good that someone who is as talented and stylish (I LOVE YOUR TASTE) as you has some of the same problems as little insignificant me. Anyway..I'm living vicariously through your (and some other artists)blog. Hope that gives you a warm fuzzy. :) Peace.
