Loading the boxes..and more altering ;-)

Yesterday , I played around, loading my grand total of two 'non bio fairy' craft boxes (! ), with goodies..

Papers, fabric pieces, prima flowers,diecuts etc

Things with which to create..

After all, noone wants an empty box ! Noone might want a full one either ..LOL!! ;-)

And then I was distracted... this happens easily!
I had forgotten about these..a pair of L.A.curtains ..'Stocks '

Not any old pair of curtains!

I bought these about 3+ years ago, from Amanda (Shabby Chick, no blog, Totnes market stall!)

OMG she will now have a fit about this!

Hi Amanda, if you are reading!

It was one pair of good sized lined curtains.
Now I have altered them into two pairs of curtains!!
For our attic room.
I think they're rather lovely!!

The boxes and their contents look great fun, so bright and cheerful.
Those curtains are very pretty, I've always liked that design.

Your boxes look like so much fun! Full of goodies! Lovely curtains too - the fabric is gorgeous! I must motivate myself to decorate some boxes, mine are just plain cardboard - not very inspiring! Have a lovely day XX

The curtains are beautiful, I love the fabric but I've not seen it in that pinky colourway before only the more blue one. Certainly gorgeous! The craft boxes look like such fun, wonderful things to play with.

Hope your sore throat goes soon, my doctor just prescribed me a week of penicillin so fingers crossed.

Wow Sal - love those craft boxes of yours - what a great idea.

I also bought some stock printed curtains from Amanda! But mine are in the mauve/purple colourway... she has lovely things, doesn't she!
