7 vignettes


Well not a great deal happening on the home front at the moment with regards to the reno’s! I kind of decided that on the days that I wasn’t working I was going to have a bit of down time and do nothing and that is pretty much what I have done. Almost…….

You see I found a new obsession!! Instagram!!! I know it’s been around for ages but I’m just a bit slow. Mr uses it all the time and takes some amazing pictures but up until now I’ve never bothered. Now I am completely addicted!

This past week I have been taking part in a challenge by Jen Bishop from interiors addict called 7 vignettes in 7 days. Firstly I had to clarify what a vignette actually was because although I had an idea, I really didn’t, if you know what I mean. Turns out a vignette is a small collection of things…..

Each day there was a different topic and your picture was your interpretation of that topic. Pictures were posted on Instagram and tagged #7vignettes. There were over 2000 pictures posted in the 7 days and some were absolutely outstanding.

I had so much fun doing this and can’t wait for the next challenge in February. Here are my 7 days!!


Day 2 was tough because as you know there isn’t a whole lot of color going on in my house being the white loving girl I am! Luckily I had begun a painting for my daughter……

The picture frame was empty, awaiting a print, so I put one of my tops in there for a bit of color….pretty clever hey?


Day 5 I enjoyed the most! In these pictures are my very first shoes, my hand written hospital band, silver baby bracelet & my baby health record. How lucky am I to have all these precious things?

Day 6 I used our bedside tables, not just my pretty side but also the “man” side. My bedroom is my most favourite place.

There is another “photo a day” challenge I am doing too, but more about that on another day!

Thinking I might have to put an Instagram button on my blog…….. Just have to work out how!

Till next time πŸ™‚

  1. Thanks for taking part and posting about it Clare x

  2. Love seeing your pics on Instagram Clare! – My fave pic was the mementos one, how very special and lucky that you have those memories πŸ™‚

    • Thank you lovely x that was my fave too. I am lucky to still have those things. I kept all that sort of stuff for my kids too. There will be another challenge coming up, you should do it. Lots of fun and really makes you pay more attention to what is around you!

  3. Hi:) found your IG feed and I’m in love with your bed/room can you tell where you got
    >bedside table
    >lamp, clock
    >those fairy lights hanging on the bed ❀
    Just love it all πŸ™‚ and awesome job on the rustic bed head love it πŸ‘πŸ˜

    • Thanks teagan! Bedside tables were from an auction room in Richmond that I painted up. Lamps are from ikea!! Fairy lights I got from masters hardware just before Christmas so they might not have any now. I’m flattered you like it so much…. It’s my most favourite place ☺

  4. Is your floral arrangement artificial ?

    • Yes! It was just a few random pieces I found and put together πŸ˜‰

      • I love it. We are in the middle of extending our 3yo house and I never really decorated it how I wanted because of the extension plans so now I’m addicted to online Decor shops and blogs for inspiration your style is awesome -love it ❀ it's how I imagine my house but I'm not at all creative and I'm hopeless at making decisions mostly because there's toooo many options πŸ˜‰ but ill get there

      • I’m a bit addicted too!! I spend a lot of time looking for ideas and pictures as inspiration and use that in my home. U don’t need to be overly creative, just know what u like and put it together!

      • That’s true and not worry If you think people will think it doesn’t look good or worry that it doesnt go togethef if you like then that’s all that matters but we have a modern house and my style is more like that amazing cottage you found for sale OMG 😍😍 AHhhh-maaazeballs ❀ anyhow so I worry that my style won't suit but I guess I can incorporate modern vintage and save some ideas for the next house. Anyhow just going to make a cuppa and stalk your blog πŸ˜‰
