Thank you all so much for popping your names in the hat to win 2 sets of Rosie Flo colouring postcards. I wish you all could have won, but alas there could be only be one name pulled from the hat and that was the delightful Scented Sweetpeas who I know has some sweet cherubs of her own, and who I hope really love the postcards. I shall of course pop a little handmade pretty in too.
How about something like this, a pretty patchwork heart I made for a very lovely lady.
I am happy to say work can begin on decorating the lounge, yippppppppeeeeeee. I have been waiting for this for a long time, there has been re wiring, plastering, you name it, and we are ready to get my pretty wallpaper out, my paintbrush out and get cracking. The husband is going to ( because he loves me) let me paint the 1940s fire surround, I understand the warmth the wood brings etc, but know it shall look so pretty painted a nice off white/cream. We haven't yet decided whether to paint or varnish the floorboards, have some new white Ektorp covers, and have got some ideas on what furniture is going in. Yes is all looking rather white in scheme, and yes I have two young children ;0) Well I am being so inspired by this charming book I have had for ages, and I always love to dip in and get some white inspiration. I shall of course be popping some very pretty and colourful accessories here and there and I may have a go at doing the curtains. We have three large windows in the lounge, one of them being over 2 metres wide so no small feat, though I am in the middle of making some for my lovely neighbour that gave me her singer and have to say thus far, seems quite a simpleish job. Though is quite a task keeping all the fabric on the table, most of it ends up on my knees as I am sewing. So time to dig out my decorating dungarees and prettify my home. Hope I dont bore you with all my decorating updates....
