Corners of my home

Hello again, hope everyone is well, I have been very busy painting and crafting, so this is a short posting today, new items are for sale and will be updated on Ebay shortly, if you would like to purchase any of the items you can use Ebay or you can email me.

This fireplace I am very proud of I put it all together myself, all bought thrifty in seperate pieces, I havent got round to painting it yet, but will do soon.

This dresser was one of my first painting projects, When I purchased it, do you remember the orange colour shiny wood that we used to have in the 70's, well that was the colour.  It had beading all over the glass which I removed, I am so pleased with the result and I did paint it for the purpose of selling it but im so pleased with the result and quite attached to it, but it will be going up for sale soon :(

Happy Friday

Happy Friday everyone, it was my Birthday yesterday and thought I would share some of my lovely goodies I recieved.  It was a quiet day, at my age all birthdays are quiet.  My Mother got me a beautiful photo print of this Barn Owl, truly stunning, it is by R & M Photography, www.randmphotography.com, what a talent. Take a look at the website he has some stunning photos.

My lovely husband got me some of my favourite crockery from Gabriella Miller.  I does adore all of her crockery and have been collecting this design for some time, so pleased with the Teapot, "thank you husband". www.gabriellamiller.com.

Get Organised

Hello everyone, hope you are all well,  I have been busy crafting and painting, new items have been added to this blog under For Sale, please feel free to leave me any comments or if you need further information on delivery please email me.  Ive included these lovely napkins which are just stunning.  I love Annie Sloan paint, I've been painting furniture for many years and I have to say Annie Sloan paint rocks. I am hoping to turn my passion for painting into a profession.  I will be putting these napkins on EBay to which there will be a link on this blog shortly.

My new years promise to myself, is to get my house/life into order.  A place for everything and everything in its place.  I had this bright idea in the middle of the night for my spice jars.

I brought from my local Dunelm Mills store, some jam jars which fit into one of my kitchen dresser drawers, painted the lids with chalkboard paint and done, spice jars organised.

Coming soon,  clock napkins, sooooo cute
