Ta Da!

New dresser just waiting for some new handles. Love that I can now display all my treasures.

My fabulous table and chairs, really wanted different coloured chairs. Just need to make pads for them.

My great £10 ebay purchase, hubbo done a great job on this.

A great place to hide little dear rubbish.

Fabulous occasional chair, love my Cath Kidston curtains in the background.

Just having a really lazy weekend now, as shattered from all DIY jobs over the 2 previous weekends.

Easter break!

Well what a great few weeks, I only worked the 1st 3 days of the school holidays and then I only went back for 3 1/2 hours this Saturday morning. Both long weekends have been spent painting furniture for the dining room. Included in the paint fest was a 1950's kitchen dresser, pine dresser, table & 4 chairs and a school desk & chair. I have to say I'm shattered. Obviously hubbo has been helping out!

Hubbo was still off on Easter Tuesday so we went on a jaunt to Filey, and then with hubbo back at work Me, my Mum, Sister, little dear and nephew went on a jaunt to Matlock. It was a great day the weather was very kind to us. Little dear took my nephew on the choo choo train in the park both really enjoyed themselves, and for 60p is does not get much better than that.

We also paid a trip to the fantastic Bow Boutique, it is really worth a visit. It's a great mix of new, vintage and locally handmade. I have to say money was spent, mainly on my sister's part.

Chicken Love!

Meet Beatirx (Ginger) & Mabel (Grey). We collected our chickens 2 weeks ago after having the eglu since February. We also had to chicken proof the garden e.g put up a fence. It has been a bit of a learning curve, how much to feed them, what to feed them! Will are still waiting for the 1st egg, but each morning is like Christmas morning here.

The chickens were from Jody at Raw Green Cottage she has a great set up and really knows her stuff. She has lots of different breeds and also runs chicken keeping courses.
