Little projects have almost been completed.
Stanley's shelf was painted with F&B Cornforth.
I must stick the S to the wall before it bonks someone on the head.
FSC are Freddie's initials.
I think it must feel like a little Aladdin's Cave when they come to stay.
Johanna's Dolls House was brought down from the loft.
I am pleased I kept some of my children's old toys.
You may be able to just see a bit of the frame of a vintage doll's pram.
My clever hubby made the built-in cupboard for me where there was an alcove, next to the chimney breast.
Not being a lover of built in! but I needed to fill the gap as much as possible.
So lots of much needed storage space.
I want to change the handles...he picked them!
I would prefer Pewter to match the door handle.
And that is my chair where I can sit and keep eye!
Three little Terriers.
Which I bought from a little shop in Burford, North Cotswolds.
One of my Hearts, which is in fact a key holder for the window locks.
I kept losing these little keys so attaching them to Hearts made the Hearts very practical as well as pretty.
Lovely Old Golly.
I always lo.ed Golly as a child.
It seems we are not allowed to love him anymore! he has almost disappeared.
The pretty little Lucy Attwell postcard
I bought from Louise
I think it was just meant for me, and Guy!
My old Enid Blyton books and Little Ted who came to infant school with me everyday.
And one of Johanna's Beatrice Potter toys which she collected.
But before I go I must tell you about a film I watched recently about
So Nursery almost done.
I need a little more Cabbages & Roses Hatley to make a cot quilt and cushions for the bed.
This is a copy of her journal with translations in the back.
Her painting are intriguing, a little scary sometimes.
Her life was sad really.
But she lived it to the full.
I find her life story so very interesting and colourful, like her painting' s.
What a courageous Woman she was.
She suffered Polio as a small child and a horrific road accident as a teenager.
So she was forced to teach herself to walk again twice!
I like nothing better than to get cosy
in the garden with my new books and enjoy a little peace and quiet.
