So I am tentatively dipping my toes back into the Blogging Waters. Life is a little calmer at Home Sweet Home. I am not moaning so much regarding the lack of building and decoration work that is being done, I am kind of getting used to stepping over the kitchen sink that is yet to be plumbed in,and I have had many mornings of waking up to a ten foot steel girder holding up the new dormer bathroom. I find comfort in the sounds of howling wind through the many cracks that need to be filled, though not sure if I shall ever get used to there being no doors on the loo quite yet though :) I am very pleased to say that all my BHS chandeliers, all 32 energy saving light bulbs worth of them are now up, as is the outside lighting, so we can nearly say goodbye to the sparkies.
Here are some pretties that have come home with me that you may like :)
A gorgeous vintage Sewing Basket, the braid was somewhat shabby so I have bought a cream to compliment the lovely colours, the basket cost me £3.50, though does have a rather vintagy smell that seems to be in love with the basket, any tips on how to give my new little gem a lovely pretty smell greatly appreciated.
I love the cute handles.
Some lovely CK Esque storage and very cheap too.
Some lovely 20p favourites.
Gorgeous LA Floraly Wellingtons, half price Homebase £14.99
Special favourites, a beautiful cake stand £2.00, a wonderful Enid Blyton Big Ears egg cup £1.00, and the most delightful Musical Bavarian Folk Dancers, they are so sweet and dance on their magical stage to the music of Dr. Zhivago, one of my one pound beauties.
A very special TeaTowel from the special and lovely Sew Hot Mitmot How could I not love these special words, I think I am going to frame it.
The prettiest cameo necklace sent to me by the lovely bride to be Dolly Dollop , Claire had won a lovely giveaway from the very wonderful Shabby Angel which included some very pretty jewellrey, I had mentioned to claire how I had rather fallen in love with her gorgeous necklace, and as she had two the same, sent me a wonderful suprise, one of the charming cameos. Thank you so much claire and thank you angel for sending her such beautiful things.
Now what could be in this delightful handmade little pouch.
Now there's a name I love so much :)
And look, whose little dainty feet are these.
Of course it is gorgeous Daisy the Lillipeg Doll who I had had especially made for me by the so delightfully talented Lucy Bloom she is for a very special someone named Daisy. Thank you lucy she is gorgeous and do please click on her you shall see how delightful she is, and thank you for the lovely little treats you sent too.
I adore my new thrifted Smile poster, such charming words and I like to think I am a smiler, often saying good morning to my kindly neighbours and greet them with a smile.
Do you often buy things that you are not really sure what they are but fall in love with them as they are so pretty, well it is exacly what happened when I perchanced on this little beauty. A gorgeous Handbag Retainer and at 75p she had to come home with me, wont I look posh when I am coffeeing with friends and pull out my little retainer for my bag :)
So I hope you don't mind if I shufty back in, maybe no one shall know I have ever been away, I look forward to seeing how you are doing and thank you so much for all your cheery comments on my previous posts, apologies I haven't been able to respond to you all, though know that your prayers and thoughts for Mr. P and his collegue, who I am very glad to say has kept his job too, have been very, very gratefully received.
