I collect little things that make me happy but also that are useful.
I really like the look of crochet hooks in a little jug, which I can carry to the sitting room easily when crocheting in there.
The little scissor holder was given to me by friends,they brought it back from England on their last trip. It is so sweet and made of pewter.
I so love little clocks, I can never have enough and I'm always on the look out for them. I got this one in an auction lot for only a few dollars.
Ideas from anyone out there will be gratefully accepted,its such a pretty little lamp.
I have tried finding something that will clip onto the globe,but nothing is smaller enough.
There's nothing like plenty of storage.
How do we collect so much stuff and still have to go out and buy more.
I've threatened them with eviction if they don't behave. I have already put some of the teddies into early hibernation.:)
Remember this little cupboard in a previous post.
I was going to throw it out,but instead tissied it up with paint and a crystal knob handle
Well I have changed it again after discovering chalk paint.
I first heard about chalk paint from my USA blogger friends,but I didn't think I could get it here.
Although it is a different brand,I was quite pleased with it.
I just painted it over the blue,then sanded it back a little ,to give it a shabby look.
Then I sprayed it with varnish. I then printed off the Pears picture and attached it to the door.
Now I am really pleased with the result. I still have to find a new piece of timber for the top,as the pink laminex was almost impossible to remove.
I moved the dolls from the shelf.
I sprayed these little terracotta flower pots with white paint
Then glued on some nice words and sealed them right over the whole pot.
A little strip of Hessian and a silk rose and I love the look
Well, I had better go and start dinner, how the time flies when your'e having fun.
