Just a quick pop in to share a couple of little projects.
I am in the throws of something big happening in my life (all to be revealed shortly) as well as getting organised for VCH and I to fly to Norfolk Island on Saturday.
I don't even know that they should actually be called projects but for the want of a better word we'll go with that.
The first one are some trays, that I painted up way back in the last school holidays
and wanted them for the wall in my dining room.
First I had to work out how to hang them-
enter some plate hooks from a cheap shop and buying two lots of nails because I lost the first lot.
So finally while I was getting things ready for our guests and VCH was wanting to help,
so I got him to hang these for me.
I don't think he was overly impressed from the mutterings I heard under his breath,
but being the good and kind loving husband he is he did it anyway!
I didn't get to even write on them until Tuesday and just quickly at that.
I have done something to my wrist so my writing is not the best.
I will go back and fix it up at some stage, this is more to just show you how they look.
The second project came about when I got this at an op shop last week.
I thought it looked a bit like a cloche.
I think it is actually some sort of fruit hanging basket thing going by the chain links on the side.
I also found this little metal teapot
and threw in some violas that I already had planted in an old tin.
Then I put it on my cake stand.
Threw on a giant plastic butterfly that the kids were playing with.
Popped it all on the old sewing machine table, with the dump shop mirror and
After I did this B5 walked by and said how pretty it all was!
How sweet, when your seven year old admires your decorating skill!
I might not get back to this space before my trip.
I will see you towards the end of next week.
After my new camera and I do Norfolk Island!
