Sit for a Spell - A Halloween chair makeover with free template | The World of Suzy Homemaker

I can't believe Samhain is only a few days away. Blimey! This year is whizzing past! It feels like only yesterday I started all my Halloween projects and now, I'm almost finished.

Soon I'll be on to the best bit. Decorating the house. Yay! I can't wait! Even though I am full of cold courtesy of Beloved and feeling pretty pants. Boo!

By way of an apology, he has offered to help ready OneandSeventy for all those Trick or Treaters. It *may* involve getting out his drill.

That'll learn him.

Keep Calm and Ignore the Mess | The World of Suzy Homemaker

"You have to break a few eggs to make an omelette." So they say.

Well if that's the case we'd best get some ingredients in, because Beloved and I are going to be eating omelettes for months!

I'm suddenly reminded of that line in Forrest Gump. You know the one, where Bubba reels off everything he can do with shrimp? "Anyways, like I was sayin' there's all kinds a omelette. There's ham & cheese omelette, potato and bacon omelette, cheesy chicken omelette, mushroom omelette, salmon omelette, there's even omelettes in a bag..."

Now that's a lot of omelettes. Not unlike the amount of mess at OneandSeventy right now.

#stylingtheseasons Summer - @SuzyHomemakerUK

Yep! Summer's finally arrived! That may seem like old news already, but if you've been following along for a while, you'll know that in my world, we celebrate the changing of the seasons the old fashioned way – astronomically, rather than meteorologically. If you're wondering what on earth I'm going on about, I explain all in this post from last year.

OK, so I'm still a little late to the party, but I have a good excuse...honest! Beloved and I have been away again. We spent the Solstice weekend celebrating the union of England and Scotland at our Besties' wedding!

Wedding at Berkeley Castle, Gloucestershire, England - 20 June 2015

We don't scrub up too badly, huh?

How to make over a set of bathroom wicker drawers using Annie Sloan Chalk Paint | The World of Suzy Homemaker

Hello you gorgeous hunk of loveliness.

After my last deep and meaningful, I thought it time for something a little more light-hearted. Equally important naturally, for the making of stuff is serious business, but nothing too taxing.

So how's about a nice, easy tutorial on how to make over a cheap set of wicker drawers?

Yeah, I thought you might like that!
