Wall Envy

One of the things about never getting around to doing any proper decorating is that I often fall into the trap of buying little knick-knacks in the hope that new cushions/a throw/some candles will detract from the dirty handprints on the walls and the peeling paint.

You'd think I'd have learned my lesson by now, and that really I might be better off with a lick of paint, rather than spending money on pretty things that catch my eye...however, I saw these prints at Wall Envy Art via someone on Twitter recently and I just fell in love. It's a set of three vintage French dictionary pages with a print and handpainted watercolour illustration of the weather. As my husband is half French, and I studied French at university, it seemed like the perfect combination of a bit of fun heritage and the British obsession with the weather!

All I need to do now is find a place to do them justice. At the moment they are on the mantlepiece in the spare bedroom, but I fear all that does is highlight how badly the fireplace needs restoring...
