a busy week

hi everyone,

finally its friday! i have been looking forward to this weekend after having so many assessments and a portfolio to hand in!!  Had to go to the flower market this morning for a weekend job but had a chance to relax this afternoon!

I made a little star today from some leftover willow from an arrangement..

And i made a union jack throw to hang ...  love it!!!

One of my favourite childhood memories was sitting in the garden making daisy chains...  

heres a pic of a pretty outfit i bought for a friends little girl!  I love shopping for little girls; as I only have boys, its a real treat for me!

I did a little vintage shopping last weekend; I found this pretty painting! just a print actually! but I love it!

Also this piece... I had to dye the shade from a terrible mustard colour... using rit petal pink.. it changed to a salmon colour...

Looks so pretty now!  

While i was picking up the sconce, I spotted this little florentine tray out the corner of my eye! sooo pretty!

unbelievably, I walked into a thrift store a few hours later and found another green and gold one!  for only $3.50.. couldnt believe my luck!

This was a textured heart wreath I made for an assessment yesterday... was so complex with around 20 different techniques  ... so pretty! and I passed my assessment thankfully!!

Have a wonderful weekend everyone and thankyou so much for visiting and for your lovely, lovely comments!


Linking up to Shabbilicious Friday!!
