Back to School 'rentree'


The long summer holidays are now over so it's time to get ready for rentree ... only one problem, I can't seem to find any plain girly pencil cases.

Not only that but I need to be able to write or attach my children's names as well and I've left it too late to sew one.

Note to self: next year order personalised pencil cases in the Spring!!!

Furniture Painting

You may remember that a few weeks ago I mentioned that I'd bought some second hand furniture? Well I decided that it was time for me to start painting ...

I thought I'd start small by sanding and painting the drawer of a little night stand.

I'm pleased with the results, so now I just need to sand and paint the rest!

tournesolI love driving around in France at this time of year.

Everywhere you go the fields are abundant with bright and beautiful sunflowers ( tournesol ).

It inspires me to make colourful creations!
