A taste of what has been keeping me from blogland...

Apart from all my recent more to go!! (yes, I do know how lucky I am!!) we have been busy redecorating our living room and I have been making things to go in it :0)

I thought I would share a couple of the corners.....sorry for the dodgy quality (and quantity!!!) the room is quite dark...but getting brighter every day :0)

 I made a little star banner to add a pop of colour using Pink Paislee Soiree - I still love this collection!

 A collection of frames that we spray painted Silver and Platinum and filled with bits and bobs

an old key charm and a little painted chipboard <3

a fridge magnet Vespa from Lake Garda

you will all recognise this punch!! Good old Martha Stewart :0)

this was a Christmas decoration I bought in the sale!

a washer that I pinched from DH's garage

a vinyl word cut on the Silhouette

a painted chipboard heart covered in white buttons

a 'washing line' photo frame. Easy peasy to keep changing the photo!!

more painted and stamped chipboard hearts.

I had a lot of fun making these bits and it's so nice when people come round and comment on the originality of our 'art' :0)

Thanks for popping in,

  1. Oh, Ali...I want your art! I would never have thought of using the frames as, well...FRAMES. They look simple & oh, so elegant:):) Particularly ADORE the washing line one...gonna pinch that idea! And no wonder there's been little time for scrapping with this going on....nother hol??? Where to this time???!!!!!! ENJOY , I say. Life is short:):):)

  2. Oh wow! Lovelovelove those frames! Your living room looks very cosy with all these handmade touches. :)

  3. Oh my oh my Ali, I absolutely ADORE your bits and bobs in frames! got me surprised there having a peek of your floor, no wall-to-wall fitted carpet?! never seen wooden floors the Scandinavian style in any of the homes I've been to in the UK. With your un-erring eye for anything beautiful, your living room is already a wonderful place! xoxo
