Victorian Finger Lamp

I found this little beauty today in a Charity Shop In Galashiels.
It was a tad expensive for me but I loved it so much I paid the full £10.00 :/
It must be love!

Winter Bed Blanket

So I posted up a picture a few posts ago on my new blanket I was making for winter.
Well change of plan...
1. The wool was cheap rubbish
2. I didn't like the colour combo.
So I have bought nicer wool in a nicer muted colour range that I think will be very beautiful in my Bedroom.
 
I still have a long way to go, but here it is so far.,.

Vintage Fabric

I found this gorgeous Duck Egg Moroccan Blue Curtain Panel
 a few months ago in the charity shops...
It only cost me a few pounds..
STUNNING!
 
Perfect for my hallway console table insert ...
I did have a piece of oilcloth in this before but after a few years it started to stain quite bad.
I  P.V.Ad the fabric on and then layered a few coats of varnish over the top.
 
I haven't dressed the table yet!

Garden Upcycling

I have never been a keen Gardener...
A few weeks ago a neighbour kindly gave me some broken slabs....
I started playing around with them and Since then Ive caught the Gardening bug..
OMG I love it...
 
Up-cycled 1920s Paraffin Heater
 
Heres some of my broken slabs placed and painted...
I added some solar fairy lights inside the heater.
 
 
 
Singer legs as potting table
 
Ive used some sleepers as the top. 
I found them outside a derelict farmhouse last year. 
 
 
 
Tyre Planters 
 
I haven't finished this project yet..
I have a few more tyres..
I need to paint them in different colours and stack them in a pyramid with lots of flowers dangling out...
