Pen Y Llechwedd – An Update

Pen Y Llechwedd – An Update

Our Pen Y Llechwedd had quite a week last week. She had the opportunity to put her best dress on, and get all fancied up ready for a little photo shoot. It has always been my dream to renovate our home to a standard worthy of a magazine, and this dream has been siting on my intention board for years. To achieve this one, is a real bucket list tick a life achievement.

Pen Y Llechwedd looked absolutely stunning on Friday as my friends Rachel and Hannah weaved their special kind of magic. I was flattered that little changes to each of our spaces needed to be made, and proud that the photos that will be featured, are of our home as she is, day in and day out. Ok well, maybe at her shiniest best, there are certainly days in which she looks like a tornado hit ?

I will be keeping the photos a surprise until they feature in the mag, I do promise to give you all plenty of notice of when the mag is coming out, until then here are a few of the shots I took randomly on the day.







Have any of your dreams come true? Do you use an intention board? Which do you prefer, cats or dogs?

  5. I’m going to do an intention board when I come back from holidays. I read that you need to feel what you put on there so that it helps you work towards it and it stays true to your values. Not sure if that sounds wishy washy but I get the general gist of it. I can’t wait to see the magazine. How very exciting your house will be featured. x

    1. There is very little that I have on my intention board that I have not achieved, they are well worth the time it takes to create! xx

  6. I have an intention board that I mostly have out. I love your verandah! Always looks so inviting. I could do a summer Sunday session on that chair.
