You'll never guess who popped over to comment on my last post. Martin Holland himself! Winner of BBC2s Great Interior Design Challenge. Woop woop! Made my day. Thank you Martin!
But the good stuff doesn't end there, no siree. I had a lovely parcel arrive from the delectable Curtise which made me gasp!
First, this beautiful Christmassy vintage biscuit tin...
Just gorgeous, but look what I found inside...
A lovely old box of vintage glass baubles! Thank you Curtise! I love them!
And as if that weren't enough, I won Katies giveaway over at Hook Line and Sink Her. But this was no ordinary giveaway, oh no. This prize is a book called 'Craft Fail: when homemade goes horribly wrong...'
Yes, we've all been there...
Featuring the craft fail of Katie herself...Special Fox. I'm so proud to 'know' her and I forced her to sign it for me. If you're not familiar with Katies blog, do pop over. She cracks me up.
Thank you Katie!
Yet another wonderful thing; look what I found at the flea market for just £12...
The missing piece to Connies bedroom set! I'll let the brown one go. This needs some tlc.
It feels like it's stuffed with straw. The top is stained and Connie's appalled by the look of it. That can be changed.
I also found this little beauty for my desk...
Rusty and crusty and utterly perfect.
And Fat Freddy (not so fat anymore) is back to his old self. His wire is out, his jaw is healed and he's accepting the fact that he's not allowed out extremely well.
We think he's too stupid to be crossing roads. He's a very lucky boy but we can't risk him getting squashed.
Bad Bobby (the clever one) goes out but Freddy isn't even asking to anymore. He seems to know we couldn't bear to lose him. He knows he blew it. He's adjusting to life as a house cat very well. The cold weather helps!
So it's all good over here.
Still no progress on the Christmas decs but the pre decking the halls clean up is plodding on. We'll get there. And work has stalled on the louvre doors as my ebay selling has gone into overdrive. It's next on the agenda after Project Christmas Tree.
I hope life is good where you are.
