My year in pictures!

I hope you had a lovely new year - here's to a great 2011! The other half and I were chatting the other day about our highlights of 2010, so after thinking back over the last year I thought I'd do a little post reviewing my last year! (more for me than anything, but I hope its slightly interesting!!)

So after settling into our new home, we set about a little decorating, starting with wallpapering the hall.... I'm still really pleased with the Louise Body wallpaper we went for, it was definitely worth the money! (see more pics here)

We invested in some furniture... 

In Jan and Feb of 2010, two of my lovely friends had 2 lovely little baby boys! I can't believe they are both almost 1 already!! Lots of love Archie and Smyth! x

At the start of May we had our own little arrival! This little one! Getting Claude has definitely been one of the highlights of the year! the 2nd pic is her helping me out with a photoshoot for the shop the other day!
In the summer, I tried to brighten up the garden....

In July, we got a couple of little trips away fitted in - first to France and then to the Cotswolds....

We gave the kitchen a lick of paint....

 We went to a wedding in Ireland of an old school friend, lovely day, gorgeous setting and so much fun!
In the Autumn i got to explore a little of the Surrey countryside with an early morning walk at Boxhill with a friend, a flask and some bacon sarnies! 

 November brought a little more wallpapering and painting! This time without parental help - stressful but satisfying!

December has been a hectic month! I did my first ever fair with my Patchwork Harmony products...

we had snow!

 And we hosted Christmas at ours for the first time ever!

  So that's been my year! What was your highlight of 2010?!
Happy New year everyone!
