CK Makeover

Hi folks, remember those scrummy Provence rose napkins I bought on my shopping expedition a couple of weeks ago? Well today I put them to good use. I had a wooden mini drawer set at home which I'd purchased from Hobbycraft ages ago. I'd already painted it cream and I had stuck winnie the pooh stickers all over it. But they are no more! I now have myself a set of mini CK drawers. Not sure where I'm going to put them yet, but I'm really pleased how they turned out. It only took one and a half napkins to cover it too, so I have lots left for future projects.

Also today a fantastic parcel arrived for me in the post. I was one of the lucky ladies to win Sian's giveaway over at hearts and dreams blog. Hearts and Dreams is Sians new blogshop and she has some lovely vintage goodies for sale, go on take a peek, you know you want too.

Look at all these lovely goodies. I couldn't fit them all in one pic.

I may have to start on that choccy tonight. I feel totally spoiled Sian, you've been so generous, Thanks so much.
Well off to watch Mastercrafts on BBC2 at 9. So TTFN.

That's a cute set of drawers! That CK design is one of my faves. I brought a mini chest of drawers from Ikea last year which are screaming out for a makeover, hope mine work out as well as yours!

Have a fab weekend

MamaBug said...

I am so happy that I found your blog today!!! Lovely! I am in the US so do you send there? And how does the money convert? I tried to email you but it won't work for me???

I just ordered two Tilda books....I just died over that garland in her new book for my daughters room...can't get it here until July so I am on the list! I can't wait to get my books and make something!

Thanks again for the inspiration! Could you email me your address? Thanks so much!
