A Few Special Things *~*

As I have had a bit of a change round in my bedroom, I thought I would show you a few special things....








This eucalyptus wreath is from my florist days, I have re-sprayed it, then weathered it to soften the colours ....









A new little friend..Rosehip



I crocheted her a shoulder bag from raffia.....








I have hung this old fire screen up...It has long lost its stand, It came from my Grandpa's house





 
So much work has gone into making it.....



While I was clearing out cupboards I found my Grandma's opera glasses...

I wonder what they have seen...

She lived in London most of her life and enjoyed the theatre sadly I never met her...


Lastly a very precious little item....


A little handmade night dress, made for me by my my birth Mother...



I have two, they are very special...

I hope you have enjoyed my special things...Thea xx

Painting the Wardrobe for our Bedroom *~*


As always there are some jobs that always seem such a chore, we keep putting them off and think.... I shall do them another day......



This was one of them, when we moved here two years ago we left this wardrobe in the garage to be painted first, before deciding which room to put it in....




and there it stayed, I must admit I did stash things in it  (bags of fabric, spare curtains, old coats etc...)
 Until last weekend, then my very special Man painted it....


It is now standing in our bedroom looking very smart....
a new wardrobe just for me!





  So I sorted out my clothes and hung them in their new home...




Thank you Fin you are a star....



So I baked him a cake to say Thank you!!


(

 (I found this tablespoon in a C shop, it reminds me of baking with my Mum when I was little)











 Put the kettle on and put your feet up.....Yum!

Thank you for all your kind words, I love reading them and they mean so much

A Splash of Paint makes such a Difference *~*

Hello I am back, well and full of the joys of spring..
The sun has been shining here today even though blustery at times, so I thought I would get a little bit of painting done....

I bought this sad boring shelf unit a few months ago in a C shop and had every intention of sprucing it up..but as we all know the weather has been atrocious and then I had the lurgy and then a house full ... so today I thought  I would get my paint pot out...

I had a bit of this left, so I added a little bit of water to it and off I went...



Maisie cat tried to help but soon got fed up...



So I got on with the job myself...



There after..two coats of paint and a thin layer of wax, its ready, now standing in the kitchen...



A new place to hide the cake tins...



A new place for storing potatoes and biscuit cutters...








Onions in the seed box and potatoes in the tomato box..yes I know a little confusing but it works!





On top an old painted draw full of saucepan lids...



There I am so pleased I painted it..

 I have missed you all and over the next few days I shall be catching up with all your lovely blogs
