The Awfy Big Handle

I put this right beside the toilet....its huge...I thought it would be handy when one of  those bad cases of hangover sickness arise..somewhere to hang from instead of just grabbing the bowl (chuckle chuckle) and it would be extremely useful if I ever have an old person use my loo!!! actually I thought it was beautiful and I couldn't think of anywhere else to put it !!!

Refunking The Bathroom

I recycled an old bedside cabinet into an undersink cupboard.
 
 
 
I Pulled off the old tiles and replaced them with bullnose wood.



 Used some leftover vinyl tiles for the bunting and painted a fabulous mirror I found in a charity shop dove grey.
 
 

New Plate

I do love when I find a new plate for my collection...it has took me years just to source a few plates. I dont have them displayed all together...they are dotted sporadically all over the house.
 
  

Bar-Lock Typewriter

ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooh I love, love love......
 
 

Decorating Hand Towels

This fabric is a tad dated... I couldnt find any recent pictures of my latest towels. Its so easy...just sew on a border of your fave fabric onto the towel....easy peasy lemon squeezy!
 
 

The Ever Changing Mirror Frame

I spent a lot of money on this frame about 8 years ago it was just a plain rough sawn jacobean oak frame... thats long before I was aware that I could have made it myself. I t cost me around £200 ....OMG I would never spend that on anything for the house anymore what was I thinking...anyways...its been through a few changes since then...
 

For the decoupage I used a Cath kidston duvet cover I got in a charity shop...
next was some magazine pages...
 
 
and how it looks now in my living room..
 
 

Patchwork Cushions

Just a few of the quilted patchwork cushions I have made over the years...and they are still going strong even after loads of washes...
 
 

Decoupage Letter Rack

I got this wooden letter rack from a charity shop in Edinburgh years ago....I painted it white and decoupaged with some napkins.
 

 

Personalised cushion

A cushion I made for a  wee boy with a colourful personality a few years back...he still has it...
 

 

Embroidery Ring Frames

I got these Embroidery rings from the charity shop for buttons....I used them to display some of my favourite left over fabrics...although the fabrics are a bit dated now this pic is 2 years old...
 



Decoupage Dressmakers Dummy

This is an old one but I still love her to this day....Her name is Madge The Radge (chortle)
I found the napkins in sainsburys I also decoupaged the necklace with the same print.
 
 

Decoupage Necklace

I decoupoaged this a while back. I found some beautiful napkins in sainsburys..nearly everything in my house at the time was covered in this print (chuckle)
 

Random Picture.. Hallway

When I get bored I go about the house taking random pictures...I love all the colours and the patterns in my home, I never get bored with them.
 
 

Slippers

I used an old pair of slippers for a template...these were actually really easy to make and better quality than the store made ones...they arent dog proof though !!!!! :( 
 
 

Pill tins Into Drawer Knobs

I got a few of these pretty little pill tins from the bargain store a couple of years back. I opened the lid put a screw through the inside and glued the lid back on. These have really made a really boring shoe cupboard into something rather unique.
 
 

Crochet Bath Mat

Made this little bathroom mat for myself last year. Once I had finished the crochet I sticthed it on to a really tough wearing backing canvas. It really has held up over the year and the best thing of all is it can just be bunged into the washing machine after each use.
