Well hello there my BLOG friends.....yesss-sir-eee.... it has been a while in between posts I know.... but this is one busy gal here. Work has kept me quite busy of late. I am in the throws of setting up a website for my boss at the moment , which is quite a big job in itself, plus I have just had the Chocolate Crow changeover to organise for another month, sewing to do, business chores to deal with, housework ....blah, blah, blah.....and sadly a funeral to attend....
You may recall this green meatsafe cupboard from one of my earlier posts. If that is the case you wil probably have also noticed that I have had a change of quilts and deco's in our room. I do this every year as the weather gets cooler....change to darker coloured accessories!...looks warmer...even if it doesn't feel it....lol
Hanging on the wall above the meatsafe is one of my most recent aquisitions. It is a very prim and grubby padded baby jacket and bonnet from the early 1800's...all hand stitched and the dealer tells me that it is actually Australian...how exciting!!!...I guess that makes me feel better about how much I paid for it (or not!)
Here's a closer pic of it...although it still doesn't do it justice!
And lastly my old oak dressing table and a collection of other favourite "bits and bobs"
One day I will get the time to paint and distress that timber shelf !
So there you have it......Stop #2 on the old "gathering my Thoughts/Countin' Crows/aka Chris's home tour. Hope you enjoyed it!
Don't quite know where we will be heading next or when...I guess it all depends on how much free time I get and which room gets to be tidied enough to warrant having it's picture taken...lol (I can assure you it won't be the junk room...tee hee)
Either way y'all had best rug up for the next leg of the tour as it is getting mighty cold here this last few weeks and the old red caboose ("gathering my thoughts express") aint too modern and has been known to let a few drafts in.....lol
