A little bit chuffed

Here is the next door plaque I made for a friend. It just needs some ribbon for hanging. I'm sure she will love it as much as I do.


Door plaque

For a while now I have wanted something for my little boys bedroom door. 
I have been thinking of buying a hand painted door plaque but always thought I could give it a go myself.

Well here it is. I am not an artist by any stretch.  I grabbed some images from his books and fabrics in his room and drew them on and used acrylic paints for colour.

I don't think it looks too shabby for my first attempt.

I then got a little bit obsessed and made one for my friend!!!

Hello Monday

My monday is full of 'to do's' all ready. I wonder how many I will get done!! Not many really since I am sat in the supermarket eating fruit toast with a latte!!! I am just waiting for my car to have its MOT done.

I don't have a great view out of my bedroom. Just the usual suburban outlook of many homes across the UK.  I hope that one day, I will get a view across some rolling English countryside.

Anyho, the lovely pale pink full bloom tulips and sprouting daffs with their beaded jacket are chearing me up when I open my curtains every morning!!!!

Love crisp mornings
