"The Reef" - a quick update ...... and what's coming soon .....

|

Hi Everyone

Well, we're back from "The Reef" (Tenerife) ..... all went well thankfully and we got loads done !!

It's a modest little place as you will see - but it ticks a lot of boxes for us ..... not least the fab views, golf for 'Himself' and amazing coastal hikes which we both love.

This is how it looked on day one ....

Hmmmm - not exactly saying "I want to be there" perhaps ????? :) :) :)

We will be heading back over in December to finish it off and will do some proper photography then ..... but these hastily taken snaps with my IPad will give you just a hint of how it's shaping up ....

Surprise surprise - there is more than a touch of Nat Cal coastal styling going on :)

We plan to install wifi and envisage spending a couple of weeks at a time there - both of us spending a few hours each day on our respective businesses - and simply enjoying the wee place once that's done .......

I mentioned the "feature" shutter style headboard in my last blog - well the guys came up trumps :) 

Billowy curtains (made by my own fair hand ), ceiling fans, crisp white bedding ....... it is unbelievably light and tranquil  ...... and yes, you can actually lie in bed and look out to sea - this little east facing balcony is just outside the bedroom ...

And we are lucky enough to have a second west facing balcony off the living room ...

Wish I was there right now with a good book ... aaaaaaahhhhh !!!!!!!!!

 

I promise I'll share more of it with you when we return in December.

Meanwhile back at the ranch, oh my gosh, we have sooooo much to crack on with ......

More of the fab Lene Bjerre ceramics will be coming up shortly which I think are seriously nice .....

Also, more Lene Bjerre rugs/mats

I love the touch of industrial/urban 'edge' these create ......

I've been promising our own brand of stunning bedding for ages - sorry for the delay folks - but it will be hopefully be on the site and available to purchase within the week ...

And finally finally - am I the only person who hasn't started thinking about Christmas ?????  ...... but time is marching on, and it will soon be time to open our Christmas shop ...

Yikes - the girl is going to be busy !!!!

Adios for now - oooops I think I must still in "Reef" mode ...... oh and one thing I must say about the Canarians - they are such a nice bunch to deal with. They just get on with things - no issues ..... and boy do they have fun at the many many fiestas - which we absolutely plan to check out over time :)

Right - I'm away this time .....

Take Care
