Goodness has it been over a week since I wrote on my blog, time just seems to fly and guess what it's Valentines Day, well I don't know whether I will be doing anything romantic!! but I am going to Bournemouth to visit my parents tomorrow, so should be a lovely day. Many years ago, my Father gave me this little picture, well actually I think it is a hankie which has been framed it is called Wedded and I love it, I always have a special place in my home for it
Now what I have been doing, well I did visit the Rag Fair and along with a lovely French Linen Cloth, I found this jacket, I have been after one of these jackets for a while, liking the ones by Cabbages and Roses as well as Brora - but not liking the prices - I was so pleased to find it, so after a trip to the dry cleaners and a new embellishment which I made yesterday for it, I think it doesn't look too bad and all for the price of £40 a little different in price!
The scarf I also found only £2 and looks great. I have indulged though with a silk shirt from the sales it arrived at the weekend it is lovely, so forties and looks great with the jacket and slim trousers!!
|I bought mine in the crimson colour!|
I have been getting on well with my crocheting but the basket was getting too small, so found this old basket, and a piece of fabric (which used to be a blind in our old house) and made a new liner and now a decent size basket for my squares.
I have so many different colour paints on the furniture and the chest of drawers - I just don't like this yellowish pine and the handles ugh! this is going to be my project , and change the light believe it or not I have 3 chandeliers in the garage which need putting up - seems to be falling on death ears whenever I mention this job. I was pleased with the curtains, fabric I found at the Shepton Mallet flea market and there wasn't quite enough but luckily found more on ebay, the length I would have preferred longer but they look quite pretty.

another find at a small flea market nearby!
So really this is a before photo, might be a while before you see the after photo!!
I have spent the day cleaning, I do love it after it has been done everything looks and smells lovely, can't guarantee that it will stay like it. Off to make goosberry crumble to take to Mum's (goosberries picked from my garden last year! they freeze well) Have a great week, and I promise I will drop my very soon.
