New stuff I've whipped up

Hey lovely bloggers.  I was sitting reading the paper last Saturday morning and having a coffee when I came across a do-it-yourself bedhead.  I have been meaning to make one for a very very long time and actually, my hubby had given up asking.  So, I got up, gathered my keys and my daughter, and off to Spotlight we went.  3 hours later, a little dishevelled, and rather annoyed with the service at Bunnings, we returned triumphant.  This was the result.  A very cosy, rather super bedhead.  Rather chuffed actually.  Let me know what you think.  I have make my son one too, need to paint the rest of his bed but it came up nicely.  OK, take it easy. 

grey with white fleck fabric. noice.

This is a very fine navy blue and white gingham with light blue and white gingham buttons.

New stuff

Hello fellow bloggers!
I've been busy getting ready for my market stall but I have had some time to do some decorating at home and thought I would share some pics. I am an eclectic buyer, a bit of everything thrown in together suits me.  I love to change things round a lot and I get a bit bored quite easily, much to my hubbys frustration.  Luckily for me he lets me have a go and put 1000 holes in our walls. Hee hee.

The "H" I got from Provincial so it's a reproduction but I have been trying to find an original that I liked and found it hard, especially in the color I want.  It turns out they had them at The Vintage Shed but I already had this one up on the wall.  It weighs a tonne! Hopefully it's secured into my wall ok? Not sure why I decided on H.  Hmmm, Home, Hawks, Hooray, Hilarious, Have a glass of wine won't you?

This trunk I picked up from The Vintage Shed on the weekend.  Love the detail inside, and although the lock is broken, I am using it in the lounge to store our throw rugs.  Hopefully my two year old won't discover it's a great hidey hole!

This metal "A" I bought at The Vintage Shed.  It's from a new stall called Vintage Girl.  She imports all her wares from the States.  I could have bought it all but I decided on these three.  I have some original soda bottles so these will go with them nicely and I have put the A up on my wall in the dining room. 

Anyway, just thought I would share.  Hope you are all well and keeping warm (if you're not in a warm place that is!)

Market Night

Hi everyone, gee willikers it's been a while.  What with the kids sick and me leaving work, it's been busy busy busy.  Anywho...I just wanted to let everyone know out there in blogland that I am going to be doing my first ever market stall! Very excited.  My daughter Erin's school is hosting a Market Night on Friday 10th August at 6:30 pm - 10:00 pm. There will be lots of different things on offer including my blankets and bits and pieces.  They have told us there will be jewellery, homewares, candles, linen etc and it would be great if we could get some people there to have a look see.  Pass it onto anyone who will listen....looking forward to it! It's at Rowellyn Park Primary School, Rowellyn Drive, Carrum Downs.  Hope to see some of you there.
