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!!!)....
