thankyou sooo much for all of your wishes and excitement re. my trip to Paris! I am so excited i can still not believe it, and nervous about leaving my little boy! : ( but he will survive i know and everyone will take good care of him.
Have been busy this week getting the house into order!
a little creative time though!
I made another wall hanging; this time from silk... french blue silk dupion and an ivory raw silk...
I rubbed the image once again with orange oil; (image from the graphics fairy) and touched it up with gold!
really love it! I am going to make some more when i get back from my holiday i think!
I used some of the vinatge wallpaper to back a picture frame to use as a vision board. just adding little bits and pieces as i go along!
I also had time to pop into a local thrift store and found a floral bed cover which i new could have a new lease of life; but in a different colour... different use altogether!
It was a pale, yucky cream colour, but I loved the ruffles and I thought with a little diy, the colour could be improved! I used a sparing amount of black rit dye... (very little as I only wanted a grey tint) and it went from cream to a lovely bluish grey
Originally i was going to put a blue wash over that too, but now that it has dried, I dont know if it needs it... can you imagine the yellowing shade it once was?!
some pretty roses from my garden
A very busy few days trying to get things arranged for not being here..
And school holidays for my little (big) boys!!!
Is it school holiday time where you are?
Till next time!
