I love little projects that only take a few hours to do. This little stool was dark brown and dingy. A lick of paint, some flowers and lashings of glitter soon had this ugly duckling looking like a beautiful swan. At least I think so!!!!

This is a collection of things in my bedroom which I really love
and wanted to share with you.
The jug holds hat pins. The large square
one was a Christmas present from my husband. It is Victorian
and is really pretty. I'm sure if I went out wearing that in a hat
I would be arrested for carrying an offensive weapon. Lol. That
pin is seriously sharp.
This is a small collection of powder puffs.. The orange one
is quite old and I bought it in the original box which says
Good Luck on the lid. It was wrapped in a silk handkerchief
and it makes me wonder if it was a gift to a bride. I like to think
so - very romantic.
The rather beautiful dressing table top rarely sees the light
of day, it is usually hidden beneath all my "stuff". The
wire shelf sitting above it holds a variety of bits and pieces.
I bought this for £5.00 and heaved it home in a bin bag.
I think it was worth it though.
I know this is my second post today but please indulge me
a while. I'm sure the novelty will wear off eventually, but
this blogging is seriously addictive.
Until next time, bye for now.
First day off and it's raining again. Never mind, perfect excuse for a little recreational housework. You know the type I mean. Not scrubbing and vacuuming, cleaning the cooker or ironing. I'm talking a little light dusting here, a rearranging of pretties there. Now my bedroom is a minimalists nightmare. Being absolutely honest, it's full to the brim with bric-a-brac, knick-knacks, doo-dads, call it what you will. Anyway, fortified with a brunch of bacon and eggs I sallied forth. I dust all delicate stuff with a large old blusher brush that my sis gave to me years ago. It's soft and fluffy, ideal for the task in hand.
Several hours and much photographing later I was reasonably happy with the fruits of my labour. Until the next time of course...... See what you think.

This is my very first post and I thought I would show you a few of my favourite things. I love all things vintage, shabby chic and pretty. Particularly anything featuring flowers, faeries, cherubs and glitter!
I love crafting, gardening, walking my dog, cooking and reading. I have a large collection of interiors, gardening and cookery books, plus lots and lots of magazines.
Cherubs, I just love 'em. Two old favourites of mine. The cutie strumming the mandolin was a pressie from my children when they were much younger. The other a gift from my husband.
Cherubs and lace, a recent purchase. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. Bye for now and hope to be back soon.
