Cracking good job!


My kitchen is, as I type, being redecorated!
I'm hoping it'll be a 'cracking good job' when it's finished ;-)

I'm not having new curtains as I love the ones I already have...but


I thought I'd make a few cushions for the chairs...just to pretty up the room and give it a more vintage/50s look...and...you know how much I love bright bold fabrics!


I found these at Donna Flowers lovely site!

I don't know if I dare go near her stall at the 'soon to be held' V&H fair!!

Meanwhile...

These gorgeous Christmas paper tags are from the 'Peppermint Twist' range of scrapbooking items by K&Company.

I love them.


They come in pads of 24 tags.

I bought them on ebay from a very nice seller in Torquay!


Finally, one can't sign off without saying a huge HAPPY ANNIVERSARY TO...



Nick Park did a 'cracking good job' when he thought up these fab characters!

Absolutely brilliant!

;-)

Lovely stuff, Sal, Donna's site is just too tempting. Hope I'll be busy at the fair so I don't spend too long on Donna's stall! Love the tags too, good find.
Hope we get a chance for a natter next week.

Vintage fabrics AND Wallace and Gromit........ wonderful! My favourite bit of Wallace and Gromit is when a penguin gets disguised by the simple addition of a yellow rubber glove! The man's genius! :O)

I just love this style of fabric!!

I remember seeing some in my local antique mall some times ago and I'm still kicking myself for not purchasing it.
