Im back

Hello bloggers,

Have you all been enjoying the sunshine, its been glorious here in Somerset, I'm back in blogging land again,  been a very stressful- trying time of late, breaking down on the way to my bestest friends wedding, missing her big day, spending the day in the back of a tow truck, a few days away camping where we went to bed with our wellies on, and a moat appeared around the tent, fixing car, car finally dying and going to car heaven, trying to find another car.   Oh my goodness I think I need a holiday.

Anyway all behind me now, do you remember the TV cabinet I was in the process of re-vamping, well all done and looking so gorgeous, I reluctantly will be putting her on eBay later today, and she is on my for sale page, please contact me if you would like to give her a home.  As I said she started life as a TV cabinet, but I have put a pretty wallpapered back to her, and I think she would be great as a small linen chest in maybe a bathroom, I have painted her in duck egg blue ASCP of course, with the usual waxing and distressing. The picture doesnt do it justice, its such a lovely colour. What do you think?

This picture is of some really really cheap and cheerful table and chairs I bought from The Range, they look so different with a lick of paint, we have put them outside the front of the house, and its our favourite place to eat our breakfast.  I used two coats of 'wood sage' colour.

I will be back soon with more tales from Somerset,
Take care

  14. I've been surfing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be a lot more useful than ever before.
