Faking It Update .....

Thank you to all those lovely people who gave advice, emailed, or simply commented on my previous post regarding 'faking it'! Your advice was so valuable and certainly contributed to our decision. So I thought it was time to update you all. We have decided to go with the synthetic turf out the back and around the side of our house. I hope it looks as good as this when it's finished ....
We have decided to go with a grass called 'All Season Gold' which has little bits of kind of dead bits in it, if you know what I mean. Anyway, I think it looks quite realistic.

Before the company will lay the turf we are having all the gardens pulled out in preparation for our new garden design, which is being finalised very shortly. We will then replant, and the turf can then be laid last. I am sooo looking forward to this final stage of our renovation - it's been a long one this time - but I guess having a baby in between it all can slow you down somewhat!

I will be sure to post all the before and afters as we finish our little projects.

Thanks also to those who left lovely comments on my last post. Yes, I will be putting some of my retro cards into my madeit, etsy, and bluecaravan store soon. Later this week I will be showing you some more artwork destined for sale at the next BrisStyle Indie Twilight Market.

Wishing you a fab Monday!


  1. Hi Michelle,
    Sorry I missed your last post but caught up now. I've seen faux grass in a few places, and it looks great, especially for fiddly spots.

    Sounds like your little girl will be reading in no time. My son started school this year too, also keen as mustard, so it's been a terrific transition.

    Have a great week!

  2. Hi Michelle, it must be nice to have your renovations finished. We have such a long way to go... I look forward to seeing your before and after pics. ;-)

  3. How exciting to get an instant new look all in a days work. Can't wait to see the progress.

  4. Ooh this is exciting. I think you are very brave and bold and I think that because of that this is going to work out and look amazing! I may even have to invite myself around for a tour ha.cheers Katherine
