Wow it seems like ages since I have been able to post a blog :-( Time seems to be rushing by and I can't seem to slow it down!
So what have I been up to ??? I am still in my tidying/de-cluttering mood so the ribbons were the next to get it :-) I bought some pegs for the washing but then thought they would be great for storing my ribbons on, I rather like them wrapped around their little wooden pegs ...
I have been to a WI jumble sale with my mate Bear's Footprints ... wow what an experience ! She did warn me it would be packed but I didn't believe her until I drove up there and found a rather large queue. When I got in there I had to literally be pulled into the crowd by Bear's Footprints to see the clothes etc. I came out with several bits including some lace curtain, a woolly jumper and some cord trousers all for about 40p each - bargain :-)
I also popped to a charity shop in Bury St Edmunds called Open Door, that place is like Aladdin's cave full of treasures - I spent hours in there (much to Mr Sweetpeas dismay lol).
I am going to felt these jumpers and will let you know the result. I also got some more lovely ladybird books for my collection - ooh these take me back in time ...
I fell in love with these vintage curtains, love the colour and pattern.
We have been watching a little field vole (or mouse) feed under our bird feeder, a whole family sometimes arrives, they are so cute!
I have been buying hellebores for my collection and planting them up, a local nursery sells them for around £2 - yey! How I love these flowers, they are like jewellery with their gorgeous flower heads.
I have been planting up primroses for my windowsill and popping dafs in vases - if I can't have sunshine naturally I will make it in my house instead :-)
I accidentally made the most humongous cake the other day .... it was meant to be a little sponge cake as I had an urge for a cream cake but then the cake tin was tool large so I had to make two large layers and this is the result! Mind you we still managed to eat it all :-)
I have also painted this door in our room and the window etc with cream paint. I painted them yellow and long time ago and have grown out of that colour now, mind you I do miss it a bit.
Oh and I have been creating more hairclips , I had a lovely large order for daisy clips so have been busy making them up and other new ones.
Phew, I think that is it for now! I hope you have all had a fab few weeks. I better be off as this bloomin blog post has taken me ages and now little sweetpea is getting rather annoyed with me and she wants to plant up some cosmos and marigolds .... now I feel guilty! Motherhood hey!
