This and That

 I still seem to be suffering from bloggers block (not sure if that's a real condition but hey ho!)
It's not that I don't feel the urge it's just as nothing interesting seems to be happening in my life at the moment, I'm just pottering along nicely (well apart from a terrible week at work last week but I'm not going to moan about it here)

I'm patiently waiting for the spring to arrive so I can get out into the garden and make a start.

I found a couple of treasures at another jumble last week which I wasn't expecting as we didn't roll up until 10 minutes after it had started.

a lovely little sugar shaker for 10p

and a lovely retractible tape measure for another 10 of my pennies.

I finally got around to pimping my shade!

I couldn't resist the urge to add a few buttons!

better late than never!
It's a lovely old standard lamp that came home with me when the convent closed, one of the many beautiful things I was kindly given and which I will treasure for many years to come.

I also managed to finish the hexie cushion front so only got to make a back for it now, lucky for me Mr. H has been sorting through his wardrobe so I have the perfect solution.............stay tuned!

I'm still enjoying reading your blogs even though I haven't been commenting much, hopefully normality will resume very soon!

Thank you for your lovely comments on my last post,  as always they are very much appreciated and  what make this blogging malarkey worth while.

  1. It must be catching or the time of year because like you my blogging inspiration has left me recently. But quality not quantity is not necessarily a bad thing.

  2. I LOVE your lampshade, mine keeps winking at me in the hope ill finish it! Well for someone with bloggers block, you've done well :) x

    1. Thanks Ada, seeing yours was what I needed to get me going with mine, once I got going it didn't take long - just very messy!

      : ) X

  3. Love your finds, especially the tape measure in THAT green! Blogging motivation/comments... Don't get me started!
