I would say that I had a lazy weekend, but that wouldn't be true because I was actually very busy! I just didn't actually venture outdoors! I was crafting, planning and tidying all weekend, so we didn't have a chance for much adventuring. Instead I thought I would share a few pics of what I was up to, and mini tour of my room.
Craft in progress... these boxes are nearly finished now. Do you recognise the pattern?
This is my collection of letter stamps. I use them for all kinds of crafts from card making to scrap booking.
Buttons, I love buttons, everyone loves buttons! This is just the smallest jar i have full of them!
I have had these Russian Dolls for years but only recently re-discovered them whilst helping my mum clear out all of our old stuff. They are now sitting proudly in my bureau.
I got this singer sewing machine from a charity shop for £35, table and all! I love it.
One of the best things about buying it was finding all of the previous owners treasures in the draws.
I love having pretty books on display. I haven't had time to read any of these since my mum bought them for me for christmas, but they are next on my list!
This radio is one of my most useful DIY's. I originally bought it from a carboot sale for £4. It is actually not a real vintage radio, it's a reproduction. I decided to give it a new lease of life by painting it a shabby chic cream. Its best feature? It is also a tape player!
I love this typewriter I bought from a charity shop for £7.50. It has ribbon in it so it actually works, but I havent decided exactly what I want to do with it yet. It's such a pretty colour though!
