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.,.
I went to my local second hand shop today in Selkirk.
I love this shop..
Its a Mr Magorium's Wonder Emporium, the strangest, most fantastic, most wonderful second hand store in the world...
Heres what I found Today...
Three small vintage Italian oval metal picture frames with Gold gilt. Italian Rococo style.
A Vintage brass shoe ashtray
A Williams pioneer postcard
In between doing the other 10 projects I have on the go at the minute...
Ive started my winter blanket for me bed!
It gets pretty cold in my house ...maybe I shouldn't have ripped out the heating system :/
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..
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!
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...
