Progress in My Little Boy’s Room | A Landscape Gallery, Bedding & More!

Now that things have finally settled down (in case you missed it I’d been helping my gran prepare her house for sale), it’s time to get back into some decorating for my own home!

A “New” Vintage Desk & Swivel Chair

So, I know it’s basically December and publishing a post without any hint of pine needles or flocked snow is seemingly akin to impudence, though let’s be rebels!
