colourful wednesday - orange

I love orange, it's just so warm and cheery and it always has
that seventies retro feel for me. Enjoy!

three things

If you had to save 3 things from your house
(not including kids, spouse, pets and photographs),
what would you save?


My number 1 would have to be two rather chewed, smelly,
but loved little bears, Bed Teddy Eddie & Bed Teddy Freddy
and a threadbare sock creature called What About Me!
The bears have been with Large Haired Eldest since day 1 and
have been sucked, chewed and cuddled to within an inch of
their stuffing. What About Me! was introduced to my
Fluffy Youngest several years ago and they have
since become inseparable.

Number 2 has to be two little self-portrait canvases
I got the kids to draw when they were 2 or 3.
They still make me smile today and I love that the children
still comment on them.

Number 3 was hard. Lots of things have little memories
and are therefore irreplaceable. I think I'll chose my
wind-up dancing dolls.
My grandmother gave me one when I was 10 and I've loved
them ever since.

So what would you choose?


Another terrible night!
Soooooooooo tired today.
Mrs Cheese cannot survive on THREE hours sleep a night,
it's not funny any more!

New necklaces

I've made four new necklaces from some rather large
old wooden buttons.
They are on adjustable length cords,
so you choose how long or short you want to wear them.

Now got to get on with the fabric ball necklaces.
Will post them up here when I'm done.

x have a lovely weekend everyone and enjoy this fabulous sunshine x

Another beautiful mug.........

Is this for real?
Just choked on my cuppa...........
I'm sure they'll be 'collectable' and a future hit
on the Antiques Roadshow.
Not sure if it has the Royal Warrant.

found via my favourite site

H I L A R I O U S!
Anyone willing to purchase one?

work in progress.....

I've developed an addiction to making little beads out of
vintage fabric (it keeps me busy and out of trouble).
I think they will become necklaces.
Five in a little row with brass chains........
I'll show you more when I've thought of the recipe.

As a nod to the beautiful daffodils popping up outside my window,
I've decided to brighten up my blog
(it's actually foggy, drizzly and a bit chilly today)
So feast your eyes on MUSTARD.........all so lovely!
