It is now a lovely spot for my morning cuppa – and all done on a shoestring budget! Carmel Ferguson, by email Your Home says: This looks like the loveliest sunny spot, Carmel!

It’s great to see you’ve made the windowpane mirror from the magazine, too. ★ Olive’s letter has won her a Hydro-herb 3-pack gift set, worth £50!…

Then, you’ll all have a convenient spot to place your things when you come in, and pick them up from when you leave. Rather than lining shoes up by the front door, get yourself a shoe rack or, if you want them…
