Just made from bits and pieces from my craft boxes.
I thought it was due for a revamp using lots of vintage lace.
Making small things is quite addictive and I think it is nicer than buying everything ready made.
I have been making tiny, snuggly blankets from very fine wool for when the weather turns chilly - which can happen anytime in our Country.
Until next time,

Storms and rainbows....
and skies so blue it makes you feel glad to be alive!!!!!!!
I haven't done as much in the garden as I would have liked but have captured some pics of lovely blooms. Since I have "been away" I have had a birthday, received a lovely new 'old' dolls house from my husband and son and been very busy creating lots of pretty things to furnish it with.
I also have my very own craft/play/work room since my daughter flew the nest. It is currently being spruced up ready for me to move all my stuff in to and I can't wait for that day to arrive.
Here then are some flowers I would like to share with you. We have masses of bluebells and they are very pretty.
and a Camellia in a large pot.
A lot of daisies in the lawn, but I love them - we had a sweet tortie cat named Daisy May and she was a really wild moggy.
Mmmm...a few Dandelions have seeded themselves.
Forget-me-nots just spring up everywhere.
.....and Lilac. The smell from these is just divine.
Another self sown beauty - looks to me like Ladysmock which I believe is not so common now as it used to be.
As I'm sure you may have gathered, my garden is not tamed to within an inch of its life. Wild flowers are allowed and so is wildlife. We get lots of creatures visiting our little haven and birds nesting in the eaves. I wouldn't change it for the world.
I have missed visiting all my favourite blogs and look forward to catching up. I will post some pics soon of my creations and the progress of my very own room.
Until next time,
