DON’T WORRY EVERYTHING IS GOING TO BE . . . . .

Calligraphy Wall decalHey! All week I have been madly prepping for a vintage fair this Sunday at King John’s Nursery in Etchingham – pics to come – but I did manage to have a break and get this lovely decal up on our home office wall. Designed by Sussex based artist/designer Kat Gunter of The Joy Press, the beautiful hand written words mean a lot to us here, as we have made some major changes to our work/life balance at home. The lovely peeps from Vinyl Impressions have given me a pretty pastel turquoise version to gift to one lucky reader, keep reading and you could be adorning one of the walls in your home.Beautiful wall decalI love the flowing lettering and illustrations and wish my own chicken scratch handwriting was half as good. These words will definitely keep me focused and positive over the next year if any doubts creep in. by Kat Gunter of Joy PressAbove you can see a few more of Kat’s lovely designs, I love the apple, how cute is that?! ‘Refuse to sink’ may also find it’s way on the office walls if things get tough :)Beautiful wall decalTo take home the pastel turquoise version shown below here – just leave some positive words in the comment section and I will pick a winner next Wednesday for a bit of midweek cheer. Happy weekend all, ooh and wish me luck at the vintage fair!Joy Press Sticker designsCoral Sunset Peonies

    I relish seeing the little corners of your beautiful home. Cheering photos and heart warming pictures of a house that is clearly full of creativity and love. Thank you for sharing and spurring on my own diy efforts with house jealousy :) I’ve only recently found you in the blogosphere so I’m looking forward to the journey … Fiona x

    What pretty, pretty decals! I so love being surrounded by such positive, cheering statements – they’re so good to look at in the tougher moments. That turquoise version is gorgeous, too. One of my fave quotes (which is have on a print) is: “Some days there won’t be a song in your heart. Sing anyway.” There’s always a reason to sing :) Happy Friday x

    My uplifting words are based around water …
    don’t dehydrate, rehydrate
    don’t frazzle, dazzle
    don’t sink, swim
    stay thirsty only for life

    It always puts a smile on my face.

    Wow! I love this message and you styled it so beautifully. It’s important to keep things in perspective and try to be positive. Not always easy but try to find the silver linings in the grey clouds. My favourite quote is from Oscar Wilde: “Be yourself: everyone else is already taken”. Genius!
