I got ahead of myself this year - I couldn't wait until Twelfth Night and decided to pack away the decorations before the beautiful boy returned to school. It's such a miserable job to do on your own and I was glad of the company even if it took a bit longer! So, the baubles are all safely wrapped up for another year in their lovely vintage napkins.
And today I am having a jolly time finding homes for some of the lovely prezzies I was given...
One of my gifts from hubby was this gorgeous little black box of techieness. I have no idea how to use it or even what it's capable of, but it's very exciting!
When I had finished the chores today I was going to plug it in and see what happened. I thought I'd have time before the school-run, but mother nature had other ideas. I think school pick-up might be early today! Don't want to get caught out as it's such a long distance to travel on dark country roads!
Tomorrow I start a new term of Upholstery. You can guess what the next project will be!
A decidedly tatty hall chair! It's not that it's tatty that I really mind. We like a bit of tatty in this house and after all, the poor chair is often used as a boot rest for tying laces and the like ....! But lately the webbing support has become so perished that one is in danger of falling through the seat in the midst of a phone conversation and that wouldn't do at all!! So, tomorrow I will start stripping back the old layers of leather and horse hair and begin another adventure in furniture! But I won't be painting this one. It is such a lovely warm mahogany polish it would be a shame to hide it. And it's in much better condition than the last one!
So, on with the year. My inspiration board is filling up already and I have lists of lists of things I need to get done!
I have been asked to do an interview Vintage Indie Mag which I am very excited about and I've got heaps of new project ideas so I just need to settle down and find the workroom rhythm!
I've also been toying with the idea of taking up painting again so I might have more to share with you as I go through old works and ponder what next.
Only 6 weeks until half term! Yikes! I saw the first Easter Eggs on January 3rd at Tesco and I've eaten my first Creme Egg already! That's a record even for me!
❤ Happy New Year everyone! ❤
