Sarah Smith, A Giveaway, And Pretty Pink....
Whilst perusing the lovely Sarah Smith Add A splash Of Colour Blog , I stumbled across a couple of my favourite blogs listed on their Things We Like sidebar. The very serene Vintage Heaven and the wonderful Lavenderhouse
As I scrolled down looking for some more familiar lovely faces, there, with a little exclamation mark, was little old me, ha ha did make me chuckle, I nearly spat my coffee out ;) After my little woe is me story, to see that the wonderful Sarah Smith and her brilliant team thought my little olde blog was something that they liked, I found very sweet.
So sweet in fact, that I have decided to do a little giveaway, of course a Sarah Smith product has to be one of you little gifts along with a couple of surprise pretties.
So, if you would like to enter, please leave a comment telling me what you would make craft wise with your beautiful Sarah Smith cloths. Obviously if you were the winner you don't have to make them into something pretty, you can use them for their intended pupose. A winner shall be picked from the pretty tin on the 24th of May.
Please do visit Sarah and her team's blog for inspiration. And good luck, Ohooo and tell me your favourite colour too, as then that would give me a better idea of what Sarah Smith product to send you with your goodies. Don't worry if you forget, I shall have a good guess at what colour you would like.
Seems to be many a painting going on here at the Poppins household, if you don't like pink, best look away now.
The paint is a Dulux Gloss in Rock Candy. They mix it for you. My pretties are not in their rightful place, as you know is a tip here at Home Sweet Home, what with the 8 week refurbishment, ha, more like 8 months, but I know shall look so pretty when they are in their proper little spot.
You can imagine what the before's were, think orangey pine. I need to touch them up a little, and they have mostly only had one coat.
One before I have.
I sort of quite liked it as it was, £2.00 from a car boot last summer, though the pink in me took over.
Ohooo not quite finished off painting the pitched ceiling in the attic room.
I love these pretty towel rails, and would love one for every room in my house. Was £2 from the reclamation centre.
A lovely bargain matalan mirror, was white, though being a Pink Person wasn't moved, so the pink paint came out.
And a lovely little shelf from a CS, was £1.99.
Well I have more furniture to paint, going to be like Barbie Land here, good job I have an understanding husband.
I know is not everyones cup of tea but they shall be spread out, even to me looks somewhat too much when you see them all like that together.
The mirror is going to go in the main bathroom, the shelf is going in Big Sister's bedroom, the little shelf is going in the kitchen and the towel rail is going in my, oops, our bedroom.
Good luck for the giveaway if you decide to enter.
