On my dressing table are a few of my handmade crafty bits and a couple vintage items like my Phrenology head ink well thank hubby bought my 8 years ago, some vintage brooches in a vintage glass bowl, the Russian Doll came from Russia via my sister who went there about 15 years ago, its so faded, my own fault for leaving it in the sun. I bought the cream ceramic rose last week from Dunelm Mill and the mirror trinket box was a gift from a wonderful friend.The wicker chair was found in the loft of one of the (many) homes we have lived in, in the last 10 years, the cushion covers were all made by me and the teddy on the left belonged to a family member who gave it to me when I was small, he is now about 60 years old.

We are hopefully going to finish the chest of drawers tomorrow, a few bits need gluing back on!!! I am happy with it though and it is the perfect size for putting the towels in, in the bathroom.
Recently on the Shabby Chic forum someone asked if anyone knew how to make stuffed boots, well yesterday I had a play and made one for me and one for Gracie for her bedroom, which she loves, I am really pleased with them and may make a few more for gifts for Christmas (yes I know its only June)
Anyway, thats enough from me for today

It has a tiny stain on it that doesn't seem to want to go, but its not very noticable, and I am sure once its been on the line in the sun a few more hours it will bleach out. I also got a pretty pink floral pillowcase for 25p and a crochet doily for........ yup.... 25p, the pillowcase will be used when I do gracies patchwork quilt and the doily is for my shelves which have been started, just waiting for coat 2 to dry to see if I need to do another one, pics will follow when finished.
