My parents home and a bit more of Aberystwyth






















My parents have moved house a lot in their time. When I was younger we would move house every year, sometimes move area too. I have lived in the South of England the West Midlands and the North of England as well as West Wales (where they are now). Since moving away to university I knew that when I returned it would be a different place but I now find that quite exciting. Every time I come home to visit I love to see their new space and how they have made it their home.
My folks have always bought their furniture and pieces for their home from charity shops and thrift stores. Over the years they have acquired a mix matched collection of pieces, each holding a story of their previous lives. I love that with 'vintage' items you are part of a chain in a story. 
The photos outside are of the castle in Aberystwyth, a place I used to as a teenager spend a lot of summer afternoons. It is also the place where Wilf first experienced wind, he was NOT sure he liked it much.
