|The retro housekeeping box was from a car boot sale. I swear by Soap Nuts for my washing, they last for ages, are eco-friendly and unfragranced. The domestic soap is something I stock up on in India, I grate it for handwashing or use it with a sponge for cleaning my surfaces.|
I've been a regular little domestic goddess today.
I've pegged my washing out to dry in the November breeze, it's dry and smells wonderful. You can't beat line-dried washing. I must get the rake out tomorrow!
I made my peg bag out of vintage fabric remnants, the wooden clothes pegs inside are second-hand.
Jon chopped the logs, I lit the wood burner.
I made some new cushion covers from a 1950's satin jumble sale curtain.
One of the new cushion covers is the pink leaf print one, just behind Stephen Squirrel on the day bed.
I finished the ironing. Even my iron's vintage. I've had this 1970's Morphy Richards iron for years.
I put this uncharacteristic burst of domesticity down to my excitement over Kirstie Allsopp's new series starting on British TV this evening, truly a woman after my own home-made heart.
