The Smallest Castle in England Is For Sale And It’s Adorable

I know, the first thing you think of when someone says the word ‘castle’ is grandeur, turrets, moats, opulence and vast halls.
Maybe some dolls, if you’ve been keeping an eye on the market.

Well, this one does has a turret. But just one.  Singular.

Meet ‘Molly’s Lodge’, a Grade II Listed castle that sits on a 0.61 acre plot of land near the village of Long Compton in Warwickshire, England.

Molly’s Lodge was built by the famous British architect, Edward Blore, in the 1830s. Photo: Savills, Banbury, Property Consultants.

Turn your indoor staircase into an indoor slide!

I didn’t have stairs in my home growing up, but I remember tobogganing down my friends stairs on foam mattresses.  On your bottom, on your back, on your stomach… stairs were a multitude of fun…  until someone got a carpet burn or landed too hard on a particularly pointy stair.  Trisha Cleveland on Quirky has come up with an alternative to bumpy, potentially unsafe rides down the stairs.  SlideRider turns an indoor staircase into an indoor slide.

Amazing Gothic finds on Gumtree

The local classifieds are always an amazing place for unique finds, and as I’m on the prowl for things for my new house I’m seeing more and more gothic items on Gumtree, the Australian version of Craig’s List/Classifieds.

I mean…

Why people always paint their walls cream.

My Gentleman and I bought a house!
It’s our very own!  Words cannot convey my excitement and happiness that it’s finally happened.

Yippeee!
Squeee!

We can do whatever we want to it.  No more rental inspections or removable stick-on picture hooks for us.  No more bland walls or neutral coloured carpets.
But I’m so excited by all the possibilities that it’s literally paralysed me from doing anything to customise it.

I’m stuck.

Purely because I can do EVERYTHING, I’ve done nothing.

I’ve got swathes of ideas.  Pinterest boards full of inspiration.
