Invasion of the Fun Guys

In both gardens, front and back, there has been a fungi invasion!

Depending on who you ask they're either a good thing or a bad thing. 


This one (above) reminds me of some 70s nature book. 

Just had to share these with you.

P.S the only blogger that sort of works at the moment is my iPhone app so excuse the crappy quality etc.

Della's Lounge Revamp pt.II

This is Della's new addition - string lights!

In the dark....

With a light on...


Nope - she was more interested in the Sellotape. 

One day...

The Demise of the Tablecloth

I was having a good browse in people's handbags via Tumblr and made a rather boring  interesting observation.  When people display the contents of their bags or what they would save if their house was burning down, look at what they lay their stuff on.

Americans seem to favour the mat on a wooden floor whilst the Europeans are inclined to lay their precious items on cloths or blankets.

Which brings me to my question;

Where are the tablecloths!

Exactly! Where are they? Does no-one use a tablecloth anymore? Why? I fear it could be a lot to do with the decline in family dinner around the table. I remember reading somewhere that a percentage of families don't even have tables preferring, instead, to use their knees.

Anyway let's take a moment to remember the fabulousness that was the daily tablecloth with images from Google:

Gaudy but perfect for hiding those gravy stains

This is an example of how serious the tablecloth was.
Ah! The oilcloth. Perfect for people like me who are prolific messy eaters.
The beautifully draped tablecloth, familiar at weddings and floor length to hide the horrors that lie beneath - the no-screws-required MDF job.
Ah oui! A common sight in (French-style) bistros everywhere!

And there you have it.  Take a moment to remember the once popular tablecloth.

Pom Pom!

I was thinking that Della needed her lounge area brightened up a bit:

Yawn. A selfie, cat toys and dreamies. She is demanding.

Taking inspiration from Hey Homewreckers Poms I think I might win some brownie points! The colours aren't ideal but that's all the shop had.

Can't wait to see her face. =^._.^=

Having issues with newly acquired Firefox. Going to have to clean up netbook and use that.  I thought I had fixed the problem but evidently not as the last blog post didn't publish!

Hope to be back soon waffling!
