I'm slowly turning our hallway into an aladdins cave. I can't help it. I guess I'm turning it into some sort of shop that you can't buy anything from. I think what I'm trying to say is, that, whenever I go into a shop and just look and touch and go "ooooh" - that's what I want my hallway to be like. Something to look forward going home to.
I've filled it with hearts and trinkets and treasures and I feel no danger of going over the the top. I will admit that its looking fit to burst right now but there is always room for something really tiny in some nook or cranny.
New in my hoard is the Love Nest that I made. Basically I bought a nest (hello? It's Easter - shops are rammed with them) and used one of my decorative hearts. I have a thing about nests and eggs but the egg I had looked RIDIC..........the heart looks so much better.
Then there is my array of photos on the wall. new addition is the Eiffel tower hanging off the picture of Bells and I at Sacre Couer.
Then there is the heart on my twiggy wreath and my hanging "love" word on my chair which houses the typewriter. I love this corner so much....its my fave spot to come and sit and just look when I'm in a foul mood. Cheers me up, it does.
I've YET to make the curtains for this hallway. Ive had the fabric nigh on 18 months...... I just have to get them done. I **could** do them this week as I have to sew a mini calico and felt book tomorrow, so who knows how my sewing mojo will escalate. Im reckoning Mark will sing hallelujah from the rooftops if I get them done.
Lastly this is the card I made for my parent anniversary.
They have been married 42 years today.....gawd bless 'em.
Gotta fly, Mark so kindly booked HIS car in the garage for 8.30am which I HAVE TO TAKE IN. I wish he had of booked it in at midday.......moan moan moan.
