Bee happy ....... get a gift

I have been a lucky girl this week and I am very happy!
My lovely friend made me this gorgeous crochet blanket in my favourite colours.
Pink, grey and white.

She knows I don't crochet too well so spent her free time crocheting squares for me and she finished sewing it together this week.
I just love the frill she put around the edge of the blanket.
She knows I love frills too :)

Thank you so much my sweet friend, I will treasure this beautiful blanket forever.

Bee happy ...... 2nd anniversary

It is my nephew and his wife's second wedding anniversary tomorrow so I made them this card.
I made it from wood, which I painted white and then distressed.
I used a printed image on fabric from their wedding and then embellished the fabric and wood with buttons, beads and ribbon.
I stamped a couple of bird prints on as they released doves on their wedding day.
Sam also loves stars so I couldn't resist adding a couple on the tag.
Happy Anniversary Dean and Sam!

Bee happy ..... afternoon tea

Do you remember these spoons from the car boot at the weekend?
I have spent a little time cleaning them up as they were quite tarnished.

I think they have come up wonderfully!

They are now clean and shiny, ready to use for afternoon tea.
Will you join me?

Bee happy ...... car boot finds

I went to a car boot yesterday with my lovely neighbour and wanted to share my purchases.
I haven't been to a car boot in ages so had a good rummage around the stalls.
I bought a stack of old books.
An old coronation tin.

A set of 6 teaspoons from Sandringham, each with a different motif on top, still in their own presentation box.

A flag on a pole.

Any tips on cleaning up the flag?
I love my purchases, just need to clean everything up now :)

Bee happy ...... buy Jan Constantine

I found myself in TK Maxx this week and this blue and white star Jan Constantine
cushion jumped out at me.
Couldn't help but take it in my arms and run!

My collection is of Jan Constantine cushions is growing nicely.

These 2 blue ones were also from TK Maxx a couple of years ago.

The union jack JC cushion came with a magazine subscription several years ago.

What are you collecting?

Bee happy ........ new mannequin

I treated myself to a mannequin recently.
I have wanted one for ages!
I found this one with white wooden legs which I loved so made a purchase :)
I added a little trim around the bottom and a ribbon tie.

I am also using it in the shop for displaying bags, scarves etc.

I love my new purchase, have you bought anything recently that you just adore?

Bee happy ..... get crafty

I had a small card case leftover from Christmas which has some smellies in.
I decided to cover the pictures over the front with something prettier.

I got out my glue and Tilda images and got cutting and gluing.

I think my version is much prettier.

I am now using it to store laces and small craft packs.

On the plus side it also smells lovely when you open it!
What are you planning to make this week?
