I do so love pretty things!
How apt is this piece of vintage embroidery for the month of May?
I won this tablecloth on ebay and I think it is charming.
Talking of pretty things, I never thought this would happen !
Remember my one pair of Laura Ashley curtains which I bought from Amanda a couple of years ago...(and then I made them into two pairs for my bedroom)?
Well, I've been looking for ages for another pair for my hall and landing...and had almost given up hope.
Well... there we are in Ashburton looking for a bathroom cupboard and mirror,when..there they were, hanging up high in Sara's Lavender box. One pair, quite wide too!! (Snip snip!)
So yesterday, I altered them ..into two pairs..job done!
I also finished these bags before spending the rest of the day in the bathroom...painting..painting..and painting....three times around the tongue and groove boarding. How I ache today!
All will be revealed later in the week but it is just about finished ..apart from the woman's touch of a few fripperies here and there,naturally!
After that I slumped into a chair and was only really fit enough to pick up this lovely mag..
and read about how people transform their homes on a BUDGET!
The trouble is that their budget and mine don't usually agree!!
Hope you all have a merry Monday!
(And I won't be taking the scissors to this, I can well assure you!)
