Shabby Chic Hearts and Buttons
Well been an odd week weather wise, dry but so dull. Kept thinking we were going to get a deluge of rain, finally arrived in the early hours of Friday morning coming down in rods. Then back to very humid, yukk! everytime you move very far need a shower.
Finally finished the shabby chic lavender hearts, not sure why they took me so long to do, in 4 colourways pink, mint, beige and grey
In between finishing the hearts got distracted by some Prym self covered buttons, embroidered a design on them and added to a beautiful digital print that I got from Etsy. They have such fantastic digital items on Etsy for use in so many ways.
Went to Reading on Sunday, well Lee went to a record fair. I had a stroll down the river and must admit so peaceful even though showery.
We have finalised our kitchen design and with a change to a new fitter all going ahead on the 3rd August. Now to order the electrical sockets, tiles and tongue and groove cladding. Going with a preprimed wood for the latter as being very lazy. Think will go for the green at the top of the walls and a pale blue chalk paint on the cladding. This should match in with the dresser, table and chairs. I know going to be murder whilst the work is being done but hopefully will look brilliant at the end. This also gives me the chance to sort out all the cupboards and dump things that are not used, put on ebay or to the charity shop.
