After spending many happy hours reading other people's blogs I have decided to start my own. I hope you enjoy my ramblings about sewing, crafting, family life and my obsession with The Killers :-) I live near the coast in beautiful Pembrokeshire with my husband and little boy.
I recently bought a beautiful, old wicker armchair at a local auction. I love going to auctions and get really nervous when bidding. The adrenaline flows and my hand shoots up and before I know it, the hammer is down and the item is mine! The chair is currently half way through being painted white and I'm going to make a new seat pad covered in a lovely duck egg blue Laura Ashley fabric which is in my stash. Then the difficult part will be deciding whether or not to keep it or to sell it.
The sun has finally decided to make an appearance and so I've been busy making the patio and garden look pretty. I had a short length of bunting left over so I decided to hang it on the trellis. I think that it really makes a difference. I might sneak some onto the sheds next, hopefully Mr Nellie won't mind too much!
I recently attended my first fete selling my goodies. It was a nice gentle introduction as it was my son's sports day. It was a beautiful day, if a little windy as myself and the other stallholders had to keep retrieving our goods as they flew across the playground! I'm looking forward to the next school fete at another local school in a few weeks time.
Finally, I'll leave you with a shot of a local beach. This beach was recently used in the filming of two big budget Hollywood films. You may recognise it from the Robin Hood film featuring Russell Crowe and the latest Harry Potter film with the Shell Cottage. The cottage looked amazing and now there is no trace left of it at all. Here is the cottage on the beach http://celebrityphotos.sheknows.com/movies/harry-potter-and-the-deathly-hallows-shell-cottage-getting-finishing-touches/ Amazing!
Thanks for dropping by!
