Recycled Glass Vase.

I have this gorgeous Eucalyptus tree in my garden planted by myself may I add. :)
It gives me lush leaves all year round.
Eucalyptus leaves make a gorgeous display on those shelves that dont get any light..
Im not a big fan of fake plants so this is the ideal solution for me.
So I was on the hunt for some recycled glass vases..
Fell in love with these from
https://www.housekeepingstore.co.uk/
Even better managed to get the small vase in the sale and a further 5% discount for joining the email list. £5.50 odds...BARGAIN!!

Craft Table Runner.

I dont usually do craft fairs.
I think this one is a wee bit special.
Selkirk has been getting a well needed facelift and they have completely redone the market square.
There is now a new craft market opening up and I will be attending the opening day.
Which is actually pretty exciting!!!

Scrap Paper Bunting

I have lots of sheets of beautiful scrap prints left over from projects..I never throw them away I keep them in a drawer for something like this...


D.I.Y Corner fireplace and wall.

Ok so I wouldnt lean on it.....


Decoupage D.I.Y Paper tiles.

I printed off pictures of Victorian tiles using matt photo paper.
I just measured the tiles and recreated the same size print.
I painted over my exsisting tiles with matt emulsion (latex paint)
I cut out the tiles and P.V.Ad them (white school glue).
Once I had gently flattened them I left them to dry.
I went over the tiles with a water based varnish (about 3 times).


Scrap Papers Mini Bunting.

I work with a lot of paper and always have a ton of scraps.
These mini buntings are great way to use up all the scraps...
