Out shopping with my daughter we saw a lovely idea in a kiddies clothes shop in Yarm, the walls were painted grey with white frames on, and hung inside the frames were dresses and cardigans with luggage type labels holding a description of the dresses and cardigans
along the top of the wall was a wahing line with tights, hats and birds pegged on and there were old drawers glued on the wall.
I'd love to copy this in Alexa's bedroom or even our bedroom, I could just see one of my summer frocks draped in a frame, mr lucey said "no you can't"!!
We picked up a farrow and ball colour chart and I chose a lovely deep shade of grey called "down pipe" for the front door,
I thought would look nice next to the pansies I've just potted up and the lavender when it comes out.
oops it looks a bit lop sided there!!
I got the needles out yesterday and made myself a nice yellow bracelet and brooch just in time for easter,
the brooch is made from angora wool so it looks like a "nest" and I stitched a gorgeous chicken button in the middle, then I knitted a bracelet and stitched on a few pretty buttons,
Picture this, I bribed my ten year old grandson (with a fiver) sporting his best grey hoodie to wear them for me while I took a couple of pics,
He said "will anyone be seeing these grandma 'cose I have to think of my street cred" (me) "no, of course not!!
Right I'm off to put on a summer frock and enjoy the sunshine while I can.
