♥My new work/spare room is up and running!!♥
There is still alot to do, but at least it is ready for me to start crafting once the kids go back after Easter hols.
Would you like a look around?
Come on then!!
There are lots of wonderful items from bloggers in this room. Gifts and pressies!!
The t.v still needs an ariel....but how lovely...i'll be able to watch This Morning while i'm crafting and the little ones at preschool!
The shelves above have some inspirational books, a tin of pencils, notepaper and notebooks, jars and tins of bits and bobs......The lovely Stanley dog was given to me in a swap from Silkie Sue, theres a little tin from her up there as well and a beautiful heart painting that i bought from the Red Heart Day (That day was a lot of hard work, but one plus for me, was i got first choice :)
You can also see a pink pot that i made with fabric from Sal's Snippets, some craft goodies from Lobster and swan, a teacup pic from Dolly Dollop and a pretty crafted box from Bekimarie.
And i love the crocheted hearts from Bliss.....another Red Heart buy.
Do you remember this little lovely??
Its the fairy i bought from My sweet fairy at the country living christmas fair.....esp for my new room!!
Here is the little red sewing machine that i will soon be spending much more time at....with my lovely needlecase from Its Gorgeous. My tin of buttons and a lovely pincushion i bought from (i think?) Lalababy (Red heart day)
And the gorgeous cloth i got in a swap from Ticking stripes.
A bigger look at my desk.....my pot of scraps and a lovely heart basket that my mum bought for me with some scraps all cut up and ready to sew.....ooo and pride of place for my new CK bag. (This room is right of the hall and the first room you come to when you enter the front door....so the cupboards hold coats and shoes.....i can show my bag off here and grab it when i need to go out. I used to want the door to this room closed all the time, but now its so pretty, it can stay open for everyone to see!!)
I have put a few magnets on the radiator.....Miffy with her daisy dress, some buttons from The colour swap and thats me!!!!! when i was about 5/6.
(don't you just love the fringe??)
Ok..here is the other side:
I need to get another throw for the sofabed and want some pretty cushions too.
On the bedside (which has some hidden storage) i want a new cloth.
Above are the shelves waiting for some organised folders/mag files.
You can see The sunday tickler up there already and Billy Bear (He has been with me and the hubbie for a long time)
And a string of pictures, that i can change when i feel like it...with the pretty heart pegs from a swap.
I used to have photos covering the cupboards in here....now i want a much cleaner look, so they will be flashing around on this digital frame that my inlaws got me a while ago. Theres also some coasters, a lamp and a clock for visitors when they stay.
Hanging on the doors now is a pretty red heart (please remind me if you made this...i think it may have been Ellieweb from ssc) it was also an item i bought from the Red heart day.
And i've put up a pretty heart garland from Lynn. (Red heart)
Big thank yous to the ladies that have contributed to my room (even though some of you, red heart ladies, would not have even been aware). I'll be showing you a few other bits i got from red heart day soon too and probably more bits from bloggers that will be added to this room.....i love having you all around me for inspiration!!!
A quick note on Weightloss Wednesday:
I was ill this week (sickness bug) so not sure if losing 2 pounds really counts..hee hee.
Have been fairly good with portion control this week.
See you next week....hopefully i can keep that 2 pounds off!!
