Praying Pew

I was just saying the other day (to myself)
how I need to have more gratitude for the things I have in my life.
The next day I found an old praying pew in the skip
was this a sign I ask myself lol
It was so battered but still worth saving.
All it needed was a bit of tightening up.I stapled the straps back in place .

Stapled in the foam and used a gorgeous piece of fabric I bought from the antique store a few months ago.  I haven't decided on the finish yet I was thinking maybe some upholstery studs.


Hearts And Flowers Serving Platter

I love this pattern from Johnson and Bros.
Its so Folky..
It got me to thinking about how I don't like matching anything!
I love having one of these plates but I wouldn't want a matching set.
That love of one of everything runs right the way through my home.
I found it in a local Charity shop.
