HAVING A CRAFTY WEEKEND!!! or TRYING!!

































































Hello ladies...OH MY!! did a blog about this yesterday and when I went to edit something I kind of (well DID)..!! delete the entire blog....

SO here goes again with an abbreviated version...whilst Byron & his father went out shopping all day yesterday, I stayed home and crafted!! finishing lots of items off today (sunday)...as well as starting a heap of new blackboards (not photographed yet)..

anyway..I have been painting vintage suitcases..white..pink..& the gorgeous DULUX "island sea" colour featured in a magazine a few weeks ago..LOVE this colour..

SOO I have been painting frames/little boxes/clipboards/suitcases/little drawers that I have stashed away.....decoupaging on some..(with some goodies i had colour photo copied ages ago..from vintage postcards to an OLD DOILEY i had!!)

sticking shells & buttons on others..

& with the pink noticeboard..finishing off with these gorgeous TAPES i found when i went to Japan last December..the gorgeous BIG PINK/white lace edging tape..& the sooo cute little cupcake tape!!
I knew i would use them somewhere!! eventually!!
I have also added an old pink vintage lace doiley hanging from a clear plastic little crafty peg..
I intend to list them on ebay this week...so hope they look OKAY to sell???
OOPS maybe shouldnt ask that question!!!

have a lovely week everyone....chat again soon..
ps...dad is still in hospital....going into rehab next week...his knee operation has BEEN MUCH bigger than darling 85 yo dad envisaged..has been a little bleed into the knee...but surgeon tells me all is good...of course dad is just like his usual jovial self..(but has been unable to swim his usual 3ks every morning!!!)....

xx andrea
