I don't want to jinx anything, but there's a high possibility that this month will be the month I move house :) YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEY!!!!!!
I've decided that I want to avoid buying new things as much as possible for my new home. I'm trying to prepare as much as possible now, so that I have time to make and find and research eco friendly alternatives, before we move in and discover we don't have something essential and need to quickly buy something horrible/plastic/made in china/etc. Thankfully, I've lived in about 6 different houses and already have quite a lot of basics (and my fair share of shiny things too!) However, I think the charity shops are going to be hit pretty hard and I've also been having a good rummage and trying to find things I already have that I can re-prettify for my new place.
The first thing I found was this photo frame I've had since I was about 12, I don't have a before picture but it was pink and sparkly with love hearts all over it, not really me anymore. I used all things that I already had to make it over - some purple acrylic paint (given to me by my auntie), glue and paintbrushes (left over from other projects) and some buttons (from the button tin my grandma left me - I'm glad I've found a use for them that means I can look at them every day!) and I just painted it then stuck the buttons on - easy peasy! I'm quite pleased! I put a photo of me and mumma in it - so I don't miss her too much (although I am only moving 10 miles away from her lol!)
