After becoming a little bit addicted to reading some of the gorgeous blogs written by ladies with the most gorgeous taste for vintage and shabby chic goodies I have been inspired to have a go myself!!
My favourite blog is Posy - her house is FABULOUS!! Jane has the most amazing sense of style and I just love her collection of vintage and ex-charity shop finds.
Something I have in common with Jane is her obsession with Cath Kidston - I am actually rather obsessed!!
I have been collecting CK goodies over the past year and was lucky enough to get a few bits for Christmas including this bag:
I love the print (it's lined in the same fabric as well) - the only drawback is the arms are a fraction short for my bingo wings *blush* - the red print is good for the winter.
I also have this one:
Which has the most comfortable wide strap and is my favourite for spring/summer.
A few weeks ago I re-decorated our bedroom in CK Antique Rose wallpaper
I made most of those cushions myself (including the crochet lace edging on the pillowcases) - Hubby says ten "fancy" cushions are more than enough for any bed!!
I sit in my sewing room - formerly a junk room and somewhere Mr Trebus (you remember? The late octogenarian Polish war veteran hoarder from BBC's "A Life Of Grime") would have been most at home - of an afternoon listening to Radio 4 and sewing away!!
Anyway, that's enough for now - more later....
