Making My House a Home

 As a child I remember my mum moving pieces of furniture around in the rooms of our house to create a different look and freshen things up a bit. Now that I have my own place to call home I like to do the same.



A while back I signed up to FlyLady and every day I get emails with activities to do around the house.  Although I don’t stick rigidly to these prompts I have had fun undertaking some of the suggested things including putting together a little book in which to collect pictures of what I’d like my dream place to look like.


The other day I was looking at the book when I decided to redecorate our window display in our study area adjacent to the kitchen. I removed the fox clay sculptures and in their place put a few things from our bedroom there instead. 

Here are a few of the objects that were in our bedroom.


 Here they are again in the window.




Ok so it is only a small change but I'm now inspired to continue with this look throughout the room.


What inspires you to keep your house looking beautiful, organised and tidy?

  1. Biggest changes start with the smallest steps. I think it's great to spruce things up with moving things around. I can't wait to see what other changes you make :) #BloggerClubUK

  3. It's such a good idea to focus on the little things sometimes isn't it? Moving a few traeasured bits and pieces around can make all the difference. Funnily enough since I started posting a few more pictures of our interiors on Instagram that's encouraged me to try and keep things a bit tidier X #HomeEtc

  6. My mum was the same she was constantly changing things and I love to go on massive room changes, I am a bit more drastic and let rip on the furniture...drives my partner insane! My house needs a bit of a spruce up so I simple went out and bought few new cushions. Really makes a difference!Going to go check out Flylady! Thank you for linking to #ablogginggoodtime x

    1. Cushions are really great for little changes. Even better have a number of cushion covers and change things around when the mood takes you.

    1. It sure can. Even a pop of a different colour can change things.

  11. My husband hates when I start moving things around but I love it. It also makes me give the place a better clean, especially shelves and windowsills. I find that having visitors is the best motivation to clear out and clean and get the house looking as well as it can.

  12. I like to move things around until the function works for me. A the moment I am trying to decide what should REALLY be on our breakfast bar which becomes a bit of a dumping ground for all sorts! #MakingHome

    1. Our tables are the same here. I tend to take everything off first and decide from there.
