    • Thanks! It’s given me a fun way to use things I don’t want to get rid of- for instance, the bridle on the wall is my mum’s from the 70’s, and you can’t really see it, but that’s my first saddle sitting against the lamp base in the corner. Makes me happy to see them πŸ™‚

    • It’s hard to do everything at once, but I had been saving the equestrian pieces (not hard to do as a rider πŸ˜€ ) so most of the interior stuff came down to paint! I definitely understand though, as much as I want to do a lot next year, it will all depend on time and $$$!
