Bee happy ...... giveaway and pretty wall hooks

I have been busy making again :)
I found some old bits of wood in Mr Happy's garage and decided to make a
couple of peg boards with it. He did say afterwards that I wasn't allowed in there again without supervision ;)
I used pretty Tilda wrapping paper and co-ordinating ribbon to hang up the boards.

I then glued some traditional pegs in place.

I sanded back the paper to distress it a little.

I haven't had a giveaway for a while so one of these peg boards is up for grabs.
To win the board with grey/white gingham ribbon all you need to do is -
1. Be a follower of this blog

5. Follow my other blog
6. Put a link in your sidebar with the first photo about the giveaway
That is 6 entries in total.
The closing date is 8th June when a winner will be picked at random by a lovely assistant who happens to be passing by.

Everything is now to hand and tidy for a while again.

Bee happy ..... vintage buys

I wanted to share my vintage buys with you from the open day held at Welbeck at the weekend.
Most buys were from Hope and Elvis' studio, loved it in here.
Vintage blue ribbon

Couple of pieces of pretty fabric

Packets of lace and fabric scraps

Cute vintage paisley scarf

Gorgeous vintage paisley eiderdown

Scraps of wool pieces
I was wondered what the best way to clean the eiderdown was, dry clean or use the washing machine on a wool/hand wash cycle, what do you recommend?
There is also a tear in the fabric, any suggestions from you wonderful people out there for a repair?

Bee happy ....... visit Hope and Elvis

I went to Welbeck this weekend with my lovely neighbour as some of the crafty people there were holding an open day.
I really wanted to visit Hope & Elvis as Louise was holding craft and jumble/vintage stalls.

I wasn't disappointed when we got there.

Gorgeous makes on show from Louise's many classes.
The work is all so wonderful.
The stalls were fab as well.
Bought a couple of vintage buys, photos to come.

You can just see Louise at the back right on this photo.

Teas and buns on offer too.
Where have you been this weekend?

We had a great time and had some dry and sunny weather, in Chantilly the temperature was 24 degrees. The chateau was just gorgeous and we more or less had the gardens to ourselves most of the time. In Switzerland there was still snow laying around but is wasn't too cold.

Are you planning a holiday or road trip?
