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
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!!
Second-hand Ercol Dresser.
Over time I realised my welsh dresser shelved top just gathered dust it really wasnt that useful.
Not in my Kitchen anway.
I used the top in another room.(at my sewing machine for smaller bits n bobs)
I put a base on the sideboard to lift it to the same height as my Kitchen worktops.
It stores all my plates :)
Another piece of really cheap furniture...
Got this for £11.00 and im so glad I bought it..
It is such a great piece of furniture..
Has a small hanging space for shirts ..
Painted with some homemade chalk paint and plaster detailing :)
The paper tiles up and down the side of the fire are about 5 years old and they are still going strong.
The decoupaged hearth is around 2 years old and has some burn marks but that was to be expected.
It still looks good though.
Working with plaster is amazing..
Its got to be one of my most favourite things to play around in...
You can create wonderful designs..
Charity shop sideboard...£40.00
I think this piece would have been worth a few bob If I hadnt painted it. :) I dont care lol..
I love it..
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!!!
Selkirk Farmers Market.
So at the moment im juggling orders, stock and trying to work out craft stall display..its all hard work, my hat off to anyone who has a stall full time. Here is my Table runner 2nd Attempt
I think it tells the customer exactly what Jiggle MaWiggle is...
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).
