As a teenager in my parents house I loved to re-arrange all the furniture in my bedroom every now and again.  I loved that feeling of taking the familiar and making it fresh and new.  That room was the small part of the world (and the house) that belonged to me.  Where I could escape, think, marinade in teenage melancholy, frustration and angst.  Where I could play with my sewing machine, read, write stories, listen to music and be left to be.

Sometimes you simply feel like a change.  
Sometimes you feel that old arrangement simply doesn't suit you anymore.  
Sometimes you find a new way of doing something so that something feels re-energized.
Sometimes you simply need to tweak your 'space' to make it feel spacious once again.



  1. And a VERY lovely, contemporary looking space it is too..............

  2. Very nicely tweaked. Enjoy your new space.

  9. Hee hee Heather, it's a reflection of the underside of the garden parasol! It's a tad spideresque isn't it?
