The shortest day of the year came and went this week and although there wasn't any sun dancing or chanting to mark the occasion, there was plenty of teeth chattering...yesterday we even had ACTUAL SNOW. It only happens a couple of times a year here, so it was a bit of a novelty watching it fall, out the window.....by the FIRE:-)
Not sure if l was a bit "out there" asking if these gorgeous hydrangeas were for sale, but l spotted them on a bush in the driveway of a house where l was visiting a garage sale, and just HAD to ask. l was so happy when the lady cut them off and GAVE them to me. l especially loved the rusty spots of imperfection on the petals.
Well....the mantle shelf didn't stay the same for long did it :-)....found this lovely old print and just knew it'd be perfect to pop here for a while.
My work room had been a disaster area for years, and l really found it hard trying to create in there, so when l re-organised my cabinets (here) and sorted through all the boxes to find the sewing bits and pieces l needed for the shelves in them, it was the push l needed to redo the entire room. The clutter was removed and sorted, the shelves were painted and the walls washed down. The bench was cut in half and painted white with the paving paint that l also used to paint the concrete floor and all the craft boxes. (There's a before at the end of the post).
Hope your weekend's warm, sunny and beautiful wherever you are....thanks so much for dropping in here for a visit.
