New Year Project - The Happy Wall

One of the first things I want to get done this year is what will be known as "My Happy Wall".

I have been meaning to do this for nearly two years now and there is a very bare wall in our lounge just waiting patiently to be adorned.

The dining room has "The Wedding Wall" - all our family weddings, changed to black and white (where necessary) and put in painted frames so that they dont all clash.

I am going to get the large box of photos from the attic when we put the decorations away and the rule for the happy wall is :

the photo has to make you grin or laugh straight away - or remind us of a really happy day

The other great benefit of this project is the several visits to charity shops looking for frames !!!

If I'm having a bit of a low day I want to be able to go to "The Happy Wall" and be able to smile and be thankful. I'll share some of the photos with you as I find them - maybe you can even vote on whether they made you smile ??

My friend is coming over tomorrow and I've just collected some lovely fairy cakes from my mom for us to have with our cups of tea - but I think I've just heard the boys in the kitchen so I had better go and see if we have any left !!!

See you soon - hope your heads arent too painful today................

That is such a great idea! The wedding wall is brilliant too. Hope you had some fairy cakes left!

I could sometimes do with an extra bit of 'happy' myself and I know exactly what you mean. Kittens, rabbits and vintage cars have a similar effect on me.

Congratulations on your new Great Nephew!!! Lovely name too, same as my brother (though everyone calls him Harry).

No, I didn't make that picture unfortunately! It's one by Helen Drewett - if you want to get some inspiration from her website. I collect her pictures as they are so lovely.
