My favorite products for the modern home

I love shopping!  Who doesn’t, right?

Getting back into the swing of things work wise has certainly helped my bank balance go in the right direction.

Interior design at home

Due to my illness, I had not done much interior decorating in my own house in almost two years.  What kind of interior decorator doesn’t change something at least once a month!  As you can imagine, I was itching to make a few changes around the house and that extra cash was quickly burning a hole in my pocket.


My old mother (Bless her soul), would have had a small hissy fit!  I can still here her.  “Robert”, she would say, “You have to save for your future.”  “You remember how myself and your father struggled,” she would add before launching into one hundred reasons why I should save.

Other than redoing my kitchen and my living room (just a start, there will be much more), I could not help myself in picking up two fabulous turquoise picnic rugs.   I can’t wait to pack a small picnic lunch and go to my favorite picnic spot near the lake.  I love just going up there to relax and sometimes feed the ducks.

Weekend picnic

I think possibly this weekend I will invite some friends, pack a nice healthy lunch, some bubbly and of course the picnic rugs.  I want to show them off.  I bet everyone will want one once they see them.

I almost forgot, I was telling you about my kitchen makeover.   I bought some beautiful new salt and pepper grinders.  They have a beautiful chrome finish.  I think I will keep them stashed away until I host a dinner party.


I made a slight interior design change in the kitchen.  I have a lot of counter space with cupboards above.  Often the light from the main light in the ceiling is not enough while I work on the counter top, preparing food.  I installed task lighting in the form of under cupboard lighting in the food preparation areas.   It makes an incredible difference.


I spent quite a bit of money on some antiques for the living room.  A nice rocking chair was the pick of all my purchases.  I can’t wait to get some rest and relaxation on that beauty.    I placed a nice floor lamp (check it out!) next to the rocking chair. That might become my preferred reading area in the house.

The pièce de résistance in the living room is my new granite topped coffee table.  I haven’t got the bar like Liberace had, but at least I have made a start.  It is one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen in my life.

Next month, I will add a few more things, but for now I can still hear my mother’s voice ringing in my ears.

Love you all

Stay fabulous
