Work progressing on the porch πŸ‘πŸ» decided to go for a cast stone portico made by a local business Rowantree Stone and steel work by McCormick Metal Fabricators. I've always loved the look of them and can't wait to see it up. #porch #portico #caststone #caststoneporch #caststoneportico #sandstone #selfbuild #selfbuildni #buildingsite #buildingahouse #nihomes #toddlerforeman #toddlerlife #instamum #irishhomes
MORNING!
My top 3 things that make me happy around my home!
------------------
1. Plants. I think they are my new favourites! They last longer than flowers, less expensive and work with every colour scheme.
---------------
2. Candles. Instantly brings calm to a room. Also handy after cooking salmon for dinner or hiding the odour of your husbands stinky trainers!
--------------
3. Word art. We have a mixture of funny or Gods word..... what can i say, I'm a strange mix of human!

What simple things make you smile at home (and you can't say family as that's a given πŸ‘ŠπŸ»)

MORNIN!
A HUGE HELLO, to everyone who's new to this little corner of instaland.... whether you're here for interiors, lifestyle or faith, I hope you feel like you can engage with me.... cos that's what i'm here for.... to help and to encourage.
Life can be rough sometimes.... am i right???
-------------------
This little space is very soon going to be covered in text books, biro marks and half drunk mugs of tea, as i share this space with my 12 yr old son.... but i'm enjoying the last couple of weeks of it just being MINE!
I'm currently trying to hatch a plan of creating a little creative space just for ME (i'm so greedy).
Anyways have a good one folks.
ps @thegwinterwonderland you can tell your little lady i love my little candle πŸ’•

So glad(ioli!) I bought these beautiful flowers from Tescos. How can you go wrong at Β£1.50! #myinterior #myhomestyle #instahome #styleitdark #nihomes #gladioli

Downstairs ceiling has been plasterboarded with @saintgobaingyproc wallboard premium to help with sound proofing. Can really get the feel of the rooms downstairs now 😬 #progress #selfbuild #selfbuildni #buildingahouse #buildingsite #nihomes #gyproc #ceiling
This little space is off my sons bedroom and above the back hall/utility room that joins the house to the garage. So the builder put a little access door in and said it'd be great for storage. Mummy says it'd be great for a play hut/hide out/den πŸ˜† #bigkid #selfbuild #selfbuildni #buildingahouse #buildingsite #nihomes #toddlerroom
Vaulted ceilings taking shape upstairs - so glad we decided to do this. I know we'll really be the only ones to see this but isn't that the point of doing your house the way you want it? πŸ™ŒπŸ» #vaultedceiling #plasterboard #selfbuild #selfbuildni #buildingahouse #buildingsite #nihomes

#myhouseinaugust prompt today is LIVING ROOM.
We have a open planned living space, the TV snug which i shared a few days ago is at the other end of this room (and between both rooms are the kitchen and dining area).
I chose this chartreuse sofa from dfs, as it is the shade of many of the fields outside. It also provides the much needed colour pop as everything else within this space is so neutral.
----------------
One of the  focal points in this room is our stove. We had at one stage thought we would stone the entire chimney breast, but once we were in the space (we have a vaulted ceiling in this area), I thought it would be too much...... and i'm so glad I didn't go ahead and do it.... less is more sometimes!
You'll also see we have NO TV in this space... and that's another i'm happy about! It's my peaceful space I have my morning cuppa inβ˜•οΈ

I normally have a hedgerow door wreath, but this little heart has been gracing it instead the past week.... need to get my green fingers into action!
Hoping that the skies clear later, as we are planning on heading to newcastle to see the red arrows.
Have a happy saturday peeps.

These beauties caught my eye in the vegetable shop yesterday....lovely home grown sweet peas!
I knew i had to have a bunch, i knew they were going to smell so sweet... did i need to smell them before i bought them.... nope.... i was confident they were going to have that sweet fragrance they always did.
------------------
I have met so many wonderful people through IG, but you do always wonder... what are they like in "real life".
I hope my little corner of insta is a true reflection of who i am, and that you won't be shocked if we ever meet!
I love stories tho, as i feel it's were people reach out a little more, it's were their heart is, and they really want you to interact with, help them out......maybe i'm wrong?
---------------
So let's be more like a bunch of sweet peas, be consistent and carry a pleasing and sweet aroma!

These shelves never get snapped because they are in the hubbies office that you don't enter unless you are:
1. bringing coffee pre lunch time.
2. bringing dinner at 6pm (bless him he works American time too).
3. Cleaning (my fav).
But i cleaned today and popped a jar of yellow billy balls in them... so of course i took a photo πŸ˜‰ #ukblogger #interiorblogger #nihomes #niblogger #shelfie #dadsoffice #officedecor #mancave #ihavethebesthusband #billyballs

Hey!
This is me... just causally sitting like a numpty, on my bed, talking a selfie!
Just wanted to take 5 mins to say hi, to all the new followers who have dropped into my corner of insta over the past week (with a little help from @homeatrosecottage @makingmemoriesinthechaos, @littlemaldod & @little_green_tree)
----------------
I'm a 36yr old stay at home mum, from N-I.
I love to see the beauty in everything and everyone. I believe we are all just living this life one day at a time... and some of those days are just by the skin of our teeth! l
I also have a blog (link in bio) where i share more on our new build, faith and how there is HOPE in the midst of darkness.
---------------------
I started this little instablog back in January, primarily to talk about our beautiful new home that we built and have been blessed with living in for the past year...... but it's developed into a kind of lifestyle blog too.
I share my love of making, cooking, faith and family (i've 2 boys aged 10.5 and 12 and i've been married to richard for nearly 16yrs).
----------------
I hope my little corner of insta will encourage and inspire each of you lovely peeps!
If you're new here... say hi in the comments... id love to meet you! #itsbettertogether #interiorblogger interiorblogger #niblogger #lifestyleblogger #interiorblogger #nihomes #myhome #mystyle #familylife #selfie #justsayinghi

Reality is, it's full of washing and i'm still in bed! But my cup of tea is calling (along with the washing), so i better get a shake on!

A rather crude collage of what I'm planning for our open plan  dressing room and ensuite area. I'm calling it #modernindustrial. It's a hell of a job and the hubs will be making all the units so God only knows when he'll spare the time. I'd love to be in for Christmas, but he probably has a different timescale in mind.

I'm having a few girls over tonight, and i'm quite excited.

When you live in a house full of boys it's easy to get excited about pretty flowers and liberty napkins!

Though don't let this pic fool you.... i'm currently sitting on my back door step for the following reasons:
One of my boys is slapping a refresher bar and the other crunching (obvs with his mouth open) a bag of onion rings.
The regular show is blasting so loud i'm surprised you can't hear it in portrush (maybe you can) and the ipad is up so loud because the youngest can't hear over the sound of the TV

Now the rain is coming in so i have to go back in😫

Happy S U N D A Y peeps!

It's been a slow one for us so far, but the bbq is on and then we are getting ready to head down to @wondrous_ebwi this evening.... i'm actually really excited as this is the first time we have went to a conference as a family! A bit nervous for the big boy as it's his first time attending anything youth related outside of our own church comforts... but i just know he's going to be SO blessed.
----------------------
Other good news is the hubby has given the green light for furniture for our balcony and a few new bits for our bedroom, so as any good wife would do.... i've already the balcony stuff ordered and also negotiated that it would be better for me to go to ikea to pick up the furniture, rather than pay the Β£35 delivery charge (you know i'll spend more than the delivery charge right??).
-----------------------
so it's another winning day for me! #instahome #myhaven #instagood #bedroomdecor #bedroomupdate #imfinallygettingalongmirror #ukhomes #nihomes #niblogger #interiorblogger

Hard to beat a bit of Sunday morning faffing around the house aka baby proofing. All bits and bobs have been removed from Harrys reach, hence the bare bottom shelf. He's into everything, I thought with having two before him I had experienced it all but far from it!! The cub is feral! 😞 #interiorinspo #ighomes  #realhomes #farrowandball #hagueblue #interiors4all #interiorstyling #styleitdark #styleithappy #mycolourfulhome #nihomes #nexthome #mumproblems #mumofthree #cornerofmyhome #sassyhomestyle #interior123 #interiordesign #sundaystylevibe

Afternoon.... i'm hanging guys😴
Shopping from 5am has hit me hard!
I've spent the rest of the morning and up till now faffing with my hedgerow, and now the tiredness is sweeping over me in the form of a warm sticky sweat.... you know that feeling right?
So i'm giving up, trying to catch up on handmaidens tale (and we have the most rubbish download speed), all whilst sucking a porky pear 🍐 🐽
But this has definitely been a winning saturdayπŸ™ŒπŸ» #myhappyplace #myhaven #hedgerowflowers #countryliving #niblogger #nihomes #countryflowers #ukblogger #thesimplethings #bloom #hydrangea #myneighbourletsmehavehishydrangea

Happy Sunday! Ah the N.Irish weather is back to normal β˜”οΈ We had a lovely BBQ at my sisters last night and enjoyed every last second of the balmy evening on the patio. At least I have my cheery sunflowers to add a little sunshine inside! πŸ’›

Morning insta chums!

I thought we where heading on our holidays this morning.... but when we checked the tickets on tuesday evening, we don't head till friday morning 😝
But that's good, because it means we can have a extra day to pack and clean the house!
Please tell me everyone else cleans their house, changes the beds and clears out the fridge before they go away?
So here's till a day we thought we didn't have πŸ™ŒπŸ» #instadaily #instablogger #cornerofmyhome #myhome #myhaven #myhappyplace #summerholidays #1moresleep #nibloggers #nihomes #shelfie
