I decided to give under the stairs a tidy today. Lots of Christmas and Birthday wrapping paper to recycle (next year I’m wrapping everything up in newspaper). I came to the conclusion that my favourite place in our house is under the stairs (I’ve never had stairs before!). I’m sure as all houses, everything gets put there at some stage but it is a permanent home to some of my favourite items. Items which make me smile. It has my gardening basket which is kinda empty at this time of the year except for gardening gloves and some seeds. Then there’s the pony’s stuff; headcollars, brand new with shiny buckles, attached are the leadropes all wound up and ready to go, rugs and a big tin of pony nuts. There’s gardening tools, wellies, watering cans, electric fencing…the list goes on. I would like some shelves to store everything properly and invest in some proper hooks but maybe the nails add character. I did a little photo study of it and here are some of the photos.
