This week I've managed to swing it so that I've had a couple of full evenings at home, which has meant that I've managed to get on with some of the list of things on the house to-do list. Cleairng out, unpacking boxes, organising cupboards and storage and repainting furtniture which has been gifted to us, all of which has given me chance to think about the things I would still like to acquire as finishing touches to some of the rooms.

001: These beautiful chairs aren't yet available but are the stuff of dreams. We've decided on our sofa, when we get onto the living room decor, but I'd like a little armchair in a contrasting colour and texture and this would be perfect.
002: I know I've mentioned them before, but I think I probably dream about these clocks every night, lately. I'd absolutely love one and have been saving up my clothes sale profits in the hope that I'll be able to afford one someday. I'd put it on the living room wall, where it would be seen by everyone.
003: These salad servers would look perfect on our new dining table, which we picked up for a total song from eBay last weekend.
004: I have a little cloud pendant lamp in our bedroom, which I love and am planning pale blue walls when we get around to repainting in there. I think these shelves would look lovely on the wall by the window, to hold little keepsakes.
005: These are actually little hooks, not chairs. I think they'd look great by the front door in the hallway, where they could be used mostly for show, but also for guests' coats when we have visitors.
006: I've been looking for an alternative to the hideous lampshade on one of the landing lights - they're a little bit oddly distributed, but I think that the fact this pendant is glass would mean the light would carry further. Is that a thing?!
007: We've got a whole family of visitors staying in a couple of weeks' time and I have to get the little spare room hastily looking a little more kid-friendly, but don't think we will have time to actually hang any wallpaper there for the time being. I figured that this rug would be a nice addition - not overly childish, but would add a little whimsy to an otherwise fairly plain and dull room.
008: I spied this jug in store when I was in Paris a few months ago, but had worries about getting it home in one piece. I'm hoping it will still be around in the sale. Isn't it awesome?!
009: I was actually meant to be looking for some bedding suitable for the single spare room, but got distracted by the fact that I don't have any festive bedding for our bed. It sucks that I no longer have any need for my old double-sized bedding, but this deer print is super cute.
Ahh, so many things.
