Bee happy ........ sneak a mini mince pie

Coffee break this afternoon to cheer me up.

Feel like I am starting with a head cold :(

Mini mince pies on my PIP plate and coffee in my PIP cup.

Bee happy .... new straws

Found these little lovelies on line so I decided to treat myself :)

Paper drinking straws are sweet.

Can't decide which I like the best, stripes or spots!

Bee happy .... footstool update

Do you remember the cover I made for my footstool when I decorated the living room?

You will probably remember that I decided to take the cover off and recover the footstool by fixing this fabric over it which matches my curtains.

Well I decided to put a frill around the side so I made the frill and attached gingham ribbon to it.

I then hand stitched the frill the whole way around the footstool, let me tell you this took a while and my fingers were really sore!

A little helper sat with me while I stitched away.

Finished footstool.

I love this much more than the checked cover as it is plainer and more shabby french style.

This morning I received some lovely goodies from 

which I won in her wonderful giveaway recently.

She has embroidered this cute picture which I will be hanging in my kitchen.

There was also a huge bundle of fabrics as well :)

Thank you undomesticated scientist for such a wonderful giveaway.

It's nearly the weekend and my birthday.

I will be having a birthday giveaway on 1st December so keep an eye out.

Bee happy ..... create with buttons

On a previous post there was a photo of my button picture.

A few people asked for a close up, so here it is :)

Sorry about the photography but is was hard to get the button heart without a reflection from the glass.

Because this was a box frame from Ikea I decided to put a few bits of ribbon, buttons and thread in the bottom to make use of the space.

Just wanted to show you my new makes, wool cushion and lavender heart.

These are now in my Folksy shop.

I am slowly adding my Winter warmers now to Folksy and Etsy so take a look to see what is in there :)

My summer house has now been closed up for winter.

Bee happy ...... change things

I have already changed my display around on my large cupboard top in the living room.

New clock from Tesco's with my club card points :)

Wooden bobbin made for me by a friend.

Button heart picture I recently made.

I have covered my footstool with the same fabric as my curtains in the living room, watch this space to see what else I do to it :)

Bee happy ..... finishing touches

A few photos today for the finishing touches to the hallway.

My broken letters are now fixed (very securely) to my heart which I painted grey.

I chose red and grey East of India ribbon for the hook and bow.

I have had this pine wood sideboard for about 18 years now and painted it white several years ago.

To update it a little I bought a few different drawer knobs for doors and left the cup hooks on the drawers.  I used the red and white theme again.

Hope you are all having a great week.  Mine has just got better as the postman has been kind enough to deliver me some new Converse, will photo them later ;)
