Home Bits & Pieces

So last December I did something pretty cool - I bought a house. Saving for a deposit was a lengthy process but perseverance paid and when the builders handed over my keys it was a wonderful feeling. 

Moving in I already had the main bits & pieces I needed as I had been living in a rented house for 3/4 years, so things like TV, TV unit, bed etc. were already taken care of. However, right after I moved in I started a new venture at work which meant I was working away from home, travelling mostly to Belfast but also Solihull, so making my new house feel like a home kind of took a back step. 

I am now in a place where work is based closer to home and I have more time to invest into making it feel homely. I thought I'd share a few pictures of the bits & pieces I've recently picked up to start adding some character.
