A Little bit about ME!

Hi there

My name is Judi and I live in Hampshire in the UK.  Up until a couple of years ago, I really wasn’t that interested in home decor, and home was just the place where I live, but being disabled and spending a lot of time stuck in bed, the internet is my life saver and one day while just mindlessly surfing I came across a blog about home decor.  It really caught my attention and I spent ages reading about the blogger’s DIY projects.  From there I went on to read lot’s more home blogs and at the first opportunity went to a charity (thrift) shop to see what I could find.  I was seriously amazed at how quickly and cheaply I was able to build a collection of lovely white china pieces to display on my open kitchen shelves, and now whenever I’m able, visit all the local charity and antique shops to see what new treasures I can find to beautify my home.  While I am disabled, on a good day I’m able to do a little bit, and am often to be found wielding a paintbrush, recycling something or more recently building something with wood.  My lovely hubby encourages me with my projects, although doesn’t always initially understand my ‘visions’ but usually comes round to my way of thinking.

I love the idea of this website (thanks Melissa) and look forward to getting to know more like minded friends.

    Hi Judi! Thrift shopping is a lot of fun, isn’t it?! I’m always finding great pieces at our local thrift and antique stores. Unfortunately, my favorite pieces are usually at the antique stores and out of my budget, at least for now. I’d love to see some photos of the things you’ve done.

      How lovely of you both to be so encouraging, as soon as I’m next up and about I’ll see if I can work out how to post the kitchen cupboards that I built. I’m really proud of them as I’d never really built ANYTHING before, but just decided I’d like to give it a try, and am actually rather proud of them.

    I totally agree with you that the more time we spend in our homes, the more we deserve to have pretty, calming spaces that make us feel happy and alive. So glad that you are able to make that happen, even with your disabilities. Love your story!

    Judi, really looking forward to seeing some of your finds. I love a good trawl through the charity shops, finding just the right thing is so satisfying!
