UNADULTERATED UNTIDYNESS to celebrate 300th post



 
 
 I 'fess up to being guilty of VERY serious editing
when it comes to photos around the house-
you never get to see the grubby kitchen floor, grimy windows,
un-vacuumed carpet, the dust, the damp patches (lots of both)
or grease on the Rayburn and teastains in the stone sink. . .
 
sooooooo
 
to mark the occasion of my 300th post
here's a picture of how we REALLY live-
coats strewn all over the stand
paint spattered crocs
muddy wellies
muddy carpet
smeary windows
damp walls (painted black to hide it)
cobwebs in the corner
half eaten cat food
and paw-prints down the dresser!
 
after 300 posts I think I know you well enough
to say
welcome to my world. . .

Ah, that's how you live is it - I'm afraid I shan't be following you any more ;) Ha, ha - I think we all present the 'clean, pretty, calm + peaceful' image of ourselves and our homes on Blog posts - but we all know what life's like really! x

Sad to say it still looks pretty tidy to me! Jane x

If this is your level of untidiness, you'd better not show your face round here!

elegancemaison said...

OOps meant to say congrats on your 300th post. I've enjoyed reading them all, even if I haven't commented. Cx

I keep searching for the photo of horrid untidiness...all I can see is a rather harmonious composition in black, white, pink & turquoise. Lovely!

kelly said...

sorry but that looks pretty tidy compared to our house lately! The mud has been horrendous this year. By the way, I am a huge fan of the needlepoint too, just love them.

Big smiles, Elaine. Congrats on your 300th post! xo

Kim said...

You call that a mess, Elaine. I am straining my eyes to see a mess. I wanted to see something really disastrous. This looks pretty neat and clean to me? Am I now blind? I don't think so!

Kim said...

I think we should have a 'mess' contest! Let's all show our messiest (no cheating) pictures of our actual untidy areas. Any one want to play? We can put them on our blogs as a post for a day and we will all pick the same day. Yes, I want to see messiness the kind we can all be proud of!

Coats hung up, wellies and shoes together, thats not untidy!

Kim said...

Dear Elaine, I think it is a good consensus that you have failed the mess test! I am pretty sure I could win! I will have to come to UK and see your lovely home and Kit!

Haha, a clean home is a sign of a wasted life.

Country Cottage Chic said...

How funny...I just wrote my 300th post too!

And....that's what my house looks like too!

Ha Ha Ha !
I position the camera to cut out the mess all the time ! In reality I live in a really untidy house with cat food, paw prints, dog hairs, unmade beds, piles of dirty washing - piles of clean washing with a cat on top, string holiding windows shut, a bucket to catch water from a hole in the roof & dire need of new carpets !

It's called home.
Lovely 300th post x

OhSoVintage said...

That's not a mess! You should see my son's bedroom even after he reckons he's tidied it! Thank you for that kind comment on my post, very sweet of you!

Sara Oliver said...

Oh dear, I don't think that's messy!

I'm a new reader but glad to have discovered you in time to say congrats on your 300th post!
