It must be SO lovely up there in the Northern Hemispere.... soaking up warm Summer days, long evenings, beaches and BBQ's.....Things are a little different HERE, but this morning wasn't quite as freezing as it HAS been, so l figured l'd get out for a mountain bike ride.(mountains definitely NOT included:-) l was exhausted before l even got going just layering up enough to keep warm, and l was wishing l'd just made a cuppa and had a lie down instead...haha..
Hubby's having a few weeks off at the moment so l'm all out of routine, or at least that's what l'm telling myself, (more likely a wee bit slack:-)....He has the telly on during the day (to watch the Tour De France) and that combined with the roaring fire he keeps going.....well what can you do??:-)
Found these pink tapered candles on my travels and used them for a mini makeover l had in mind.
There were only three paper angels in the packet so l photocopied another couple to make five....one for each candle. lt was easy as, to cut out and sticky tape an angel and a vintage flower bouquet to each one.
The little brown cardboard box came from Mum's and in it were a heap of old prayer cards...l picked out the prettiest to show here.
I've always loved the antique fabric boxes l see in mags and on some of the blogs l visit, so when l came across this plain box yesterday, l decided to have a go at covering it.The hardest part was choosing the right fabric for the look l was after..... this was the closest l had, and it was used inside out, as it looked more faded and vintagey. Spray adhesive was used to attach the fabric to the cardboard.
l was crushed to get a letter from Harris Publications (who publish The Romantic Country magazine) to say they've gone into liquidation....my favourite mag is NO more.....
Just as well it only takes an hour or so to get to Lily Pond.....'cos there they sell the Jeanne D'Arc Living magazine. l took a trip there last week and since they were all so lovely (and l comfort read).... l bought three issues:-)
Wishing everyone the best of weeks....thanks so much for stopping in here and also for your lovely comments and kind words...
Hugs and Hugs,
