Shabby Old Church Pew

My sad old church pew has found its way to ebay.

Its in need of restoration, and some tender care.  

We used to live on the Warwickshire/Northamptonshire border in the UK, which is where this pew was from  originally, a little church in a village where we lived, were making more room and selling off surplus pews.

We paid around $400 for it 6 years ago, it weights a tonne, and suited our little cottage.  It has loads of character.  And in the right house or setting would look fab.  A couple of coats of varnish and some pretty cushions would make all the difference!!

It even has a couple of hooks in the back to hang a kneeling cushion, and a shelf to keep your prayer book.

Polka Dots & Cupcakes ~ Party bags

Easter bags, party bags, play bags, little book bags, they can be called anything, but I like to call them party bags, as they are just large enough to hold some yummy lollies, and few goodies.  The bag in itself is a gift.

These are also environmentally friendly, as can be used time and time again, by the little party goer.

Each bag is hand made in a gorgeous polka dot cotton fabric and cupcake grossgrain handles, fully overlocked on the inside and double stitched for strength.

These were a special order for a customer and thought they turned out so well, that id share with you all.

3 Little Party bags

$12.00 for 3($4.00 each) individually.
These will be in store from tomorrow.

An absolute riot of colour from  Amy Butler Laminated Cotton/Oilcloth, just arrived yesterday, it was a long time coming. I think they went around the world a couple of times extra, anyway it was worth the wait.  Im so having trouble deciding which one I love best.

This is the Trumpet Flower from the LOVE Collection,  in the Emerald green Colourway, the yellow and purple work so well together making this a stunning design, looks good on my dining table too...

These flowers are a whopping 25cm wide

Let me know what you think, Id love to hear your comments on these pieces of gorgeoussness.
