Walking Through My House

I have to blog more. I know!

Today I thought I would take you for a walk through the floors of my house, mainly because they are photos that I took that I will not have to crop!

 How could one not be inspired?

Added: Because I was going out to dinner and had minimal time to post, but still wanted to post, and in response to some of the comments!

The rectangular one above is in the shower I use, so I stand there staring at it as I wash my hair and think ... "oh, that would make a great quilt" and the other night I was standing there thinking "you could probably knit a blanket like that" and I just had to share! I think both my grandparents had similiar tiled bathrooms.

The one with the multicoloured squares is a rug my parents had in their house over floorboards (now polished) when I was growing up and my siblings and I loved hopping across it from coloured square to coloured square and when we moved into the house that we are renting at the moment, my Dad said why didn't we put the rug down on the rather ugly green feltex in the front room.

As Dad had "one day" been planning on using it in a cottage he wanted to build and has not and is not likely to ever build one, I think he is rather glad to see it again and for it to be used.

And I love the flowers in the hall way! If I get a chance, I'll take some more photos of that one for you!
