some new things, pretty bridal cape


finally feeling up to posting.  not many photos though as   I cannot seem to find my memory cards anywhere unfortunately!

I tried to take a couple of photos but my camera can only store a couple on its internal memory..

Anyway, these are from a pretty Bavarian dinner set I found a few days ago in a thrift store!  the first roses from my garden, and some lilacs about to bloom!

I have been meaning to change the wallpaper forever, just havent had time... really want mouldings applied to the walls.

I have been repainting the whole house though, which is a massive job... even the skirtings and cornices, all the doors and frames! 

And this is a little bridal cape I made.  I stitched the chiffon and tule and applied all the flowers... babies breath, aldomedra, and geraldton wax with an pretty anemone in the center...

Have been doing a lot of flowers, and its almost the end of semester which is portfolio time!  I have a lot of work to do and considering I cant find my memory cards I am going to struggle!

Havent felt like blogging a lot lately as I lost a dear friend.  I wont go into details but it was a horrible, unexpected accident and everyone who knew him and the family were just devastated.

I m sorry once again that I have been a bad blogger!  Hopefully my memory cards will turn up and i can take some pics of everything I have been meaning to lately!!

                                                              lots of love   Laura xxxx

  2. Don't worry about being a bad blogger Laura ? Blogginf had to be a pleasure, and we can't share when our soul is devastated. Take care of you. When we are confronted to such tragedies, we have to be conscious of shortness of our lives and to try to see the small things that can lighten our soul.
    thank you for your nice pictures and many hugs...
