Do you like skips, well I do. Yes I know they are not much to look at though these days you can get pretty pink ones which I think are rather nice. Yes I love skips though much prefer what may be lurking inside. And hey if our very own Kirstie Allsopp can do it then I don't see why little olde me can't too.
So when I saw a friendly looking lady heaving this into her skip outside her home I couldn't resist asking if I could give it a new home. She was delighted that I could give it a new home and I also asked for a pretty wicker stool too.
Here it is now hopefully looking pretty in Miss. Poppins Attic Bedroom. I have painted it and lined the back with the Paris Rose wallpaper.
Some of her pretties. The pretty little initial was lovingly handmade for Miss. Poppins by Little Gem's World for a swap we did.
And here is the stool, which I gave a little paint job and made a pretty cushion for.
So next time you see a skip, you never know what may be lurking inside and don't forget your yellow gripper gloves a la advice from Kirstie Allsopp ;) I would love to know what you think of her new programme.
Happy Hunting :)
I have been so very touched and moved by a wonderful handmade gift that has come my way from the delightful Clare Clare wanted to make me a special personalised heart and I asked kindly if she could make a little heart that I knew would make me smile every time I looked at it. It has been lovingly handmade in memory of a very, very special little person and has indeed made me smile, it is truly beautiful.
Look how beautifully it was wrapped and the most exquisite handmade and embroidered name tag.
Wrapped in one of my favourite prints.
I was thoroughly overwhelmed by its beauty.
Gorgeous ric rac edging.
A very special feather.
And its little home, in the children's room where it belongs :)
Clare it is a wonderful and special gift. I know you know how much it shall mean to me and my family. Thank you so dearly.
