Its going to be a lovely weekend….
First a round up of the little things that made me happy from this week….
Last week we bought a beautiful old treadle sewing machine of a type I have not seen before…
It is waiting to be cleaned…I will post about it soon.
However….. on emptying the drawers I found a stash of very old crochet hooks..
the pink one is mine the other is one of the older ones…for comparison
BUT look at the others….
They are made from bone and have been made by hand…I love them.
I think they were waiting for me to give them a new life….. doing what they were ‘born’ to do.
I had a gift….it was adressed “to the wonderous Daisy Jones” ? that made me smile…
and the card was by the lovely cupcakes for clara …I do so love her cross little face….
Thank you Mrs G from Crafting not Cleaning Turns out we were both in London at the same time too!
The ‘Toh’ has been busy too..
He has been ‘restoring’ these old Anglepoise lamps to perfection…..
Trouble is I keep finding homes for them….his stock is dwindling…..
And guess who’s corner of the sitting room this is below?
We have been trying to ‘Freshen and Simplify’ as part of our redecoration of the Sitting area without spending
any a lot of money….by reusing and restoring or making it ….Definitely not by buying anything new…that it is our mission.
we are accomplishing it too…..mainly him not me i will admit
Here is a quick glimpse (more with details for another post… later)
I am excited too and very proud….about this
My boy is performing at the Royal albert Hall Tonight
He is more likely to be found doing this…..
But not tonight….
tonight he will be here…
with his school choir……
so I am now off to catch the Train up to Kensington…
Happy Bank Holiday Weekend to everyone….
