I have a few photos taken over the past couple of weeks or so to share but bare with me as they are all a bit random and unconnected!!

After undertaking the makeover of H's room he needed a bit of art on his walls - keeping up with the English hunting lodge theme I had a look at stag or hare prints but as usual they were rather expensive and so I decided to have a go myself.

For someone who got a "F " in art I don't think he turned out too bad:

The window box Mr G made me is finally in bloom:

Recently we had a fantastic new charity shop open up nearby which just stocks craft materials - they have a lovely selection of fabrics, threads, buttons and other vintage and secondhand lovelies. I got a lovely little haul on one of my visits:

And I also found a gorgeous little china cabinet at the tip for the princely sum of £6:

In other news, we have a new pony - my friend R has loaned a lovely big cob called Bobby who has come to live with my two:

Once more I've stuck to the advice on how to found a perfect mount "Ensure they have an arse to match yours"!!

Can't leave out little Jasmin!!

Thanks for reading....

  1. How did you only get an F?? The Hare is amazing!!xx

  2. You do make me laugh, Sarah! It's just as well I don't live near you, with that brill charity shop to spend all my time in. I showed DH your hedgehog 'roadkill' cake and he wondered if you'd seen this link ? I typed in 'cakes gone wrong' on Google, and there are more than you'd imagine! Yours did look yummy x

  3. A charity shop selling craft stuff - lush! And that china cabinet is beautiful - looks lovely with the paper inside it - clever you. ! xx

  4. Wow - that painting is amazing!! Amazing effort. J9 x

  5. The hare painting is stunning, please keep painting/drawing, you have talent.

  6. Hello, just wanted to say hi as I think you are a relatively local blogger to me, I found you while googling "Annie Sloan Chichester" and then stopped for a browse! The painting is amazing, it makes a mockery of your art grade!


Every comment you leave makes my day, so do take a moment to say hello....
