Boy, was it time to have a few rays of sunshine instead of all the rain!
And there is nothing like a fresh bunch of Sweet William to put a spring in your step..
My lovely neighbour about whose house and garden you can read here
...has managed to sell her house within a month of putting it on the market, for a really good price with a decent profit.. and really it got me thinking.. about presentation and about adding to the value of your property.
The house I live in with the Modern Country Gentleman is really not very exciting, but with vision and a small budget, a lot could be achieved.And who knows, we , too can sell for a decent profit and buy our dream house near the sea!!
So I have now started on the first step : to de-clutter.
This is where the ugly comes in..
But I have done my best, starting in the kitchen..this side is usually covered in all kind of bottles of olive oil, vinegar , spices, honey, a breadbasket, scissors, some old Christmas decorations, placemats- a whole area covered in stuff...
..but this is better I think..
and this part is usually covered in glass jars -to be used for jam - and crockery that needs to go in the dishwasher.... but this is better too I think....
There is something very liberating in de-cluttering..I can really recommend it !
This is all going to the charity shop - or to family or friends..
..which will give me a nice and tidy wardrobe again....
..and once I get going it's almost impossible to stop !!!
I am so pleased we finally have some gorgeous weather were you can sit outside in the evening, have a nice meal in the garden on the terrace,
a glass of wine, some salad , a huge bowl of pasta with.. errmm ?!?
...have a lovely week !!!!
