i was having one of those mornings, ones that you wish would disappear as quickly as they appeared. it was then that i found that i had wondered into one of my favourite streets in london, and next to that two of my other favourite streets. after seeing them today, i will probably write about why these are so special, but for today i will share with you why these streets make me smile.
now contrary to who i work for and the colour of my own home, i do absolutely love colour. i have a ridiculous fondness for a pantone chip, i have a lots of spools and hanks of yarn, i have a slightly worrying amount of coloured pens (thick and thin) and i also have quite an extraordinary collection of paint charts. i have for the last 3 years carried a small collection of farrow and ball paint swatches in my purse, and even though they are tattered and torn i can’t bring myself to throw them away. ridiculous i know but they are rather lovely.
so here is why i love these streets so much, they simply have the most wonderful doors, silly but it is often the small things that make you smile and make your day.
if you have a story about how a small thing can lift you from what might be a god awful day. why don’t you pop over to mummy never sleeps and add your post to her linky, just like i have x
