Happy Easter ladies~~

My Good Friday is ONE BIG day of painting and getting my vintage goodies ready for the next SVJ fair in June..

A few posts ago i mentioned i had turned my laundry into my crafting space..

I LIED ~~~ Unintentionally of course!!

It has now gradually moved several hundred metres into my kitchen!!
Don't ask me why, it just kind of happened that way..
(well just over this LONG weekend ??)..

ANYWAY...shall show some BEFORE photos of my goodies & their progress re being transformed...

1... apricot "60's leather stool ...
re painted & recovered with LOTS of crochet doilies..

2...Horrid pair lamp shades...
work in progress...part painted & covering in vintage crochet doilies..

3...The pink suitcase from a few posts ago...
finished painting & lightly stencilled with a PARIS very light grey/silver....smudged a tad to look a bit more vintage..

4...The OLD green leather shopping trolley...
painted white & handle covered in crochet doiley/string & my handmade butterfly cards...

PLUS my other lot of doilies i stiffened have come up a REAL TREAT..
(I have a new product coming from the USA re stiffening shall fill you in on that when i get it & try embellishing the wooden handle..)

Also LOVING my LOT of handmade cards ...all cut out by me in heavy duty cardboard and then embellished with vintage french dictionary pages/music sheets..
finished off with some vintage crochet bits & bobs..tied with heavy duty string/cute little pegs..

I have LOTS of other frames & pieces..BUT won't bore you with all that...

SOO I am flat out (as Tamarah would say.."like a lizard drinking")..

with paint probably all over the computer keys!!

have a lovely easter without too much chocolate indulgence!!~

My gosh...what a busy day you have had...I confess I spent the day on the couch watching movies...something I very rarely do. Your not so pretty pink suitcase now looks divine...and that old shopping trolley looks very French...perfect for market days. Happy Easter to you and your,
