Inspiration from above

I had to delete my last few posts....... emotions have been running high. I said too much too soon and hit the ground real hard. Me and Anson are very different when it comes to superstition I guess its a bit like announcing the news of a baby, you have to be certain and anything can happen. I would like to say Yes we are moving but there could always be that little hitch so for now I am not getting my hopes up. I have been bleeding my blog dry and feel lost as I want to be on the scene with my paintbrush. Desperately saving and working in order to bring some magic into our home. I am a positive thinker and if there is a will there is a way so I will continue being positive. I have been doing a lot of research into Elegant Ceiling Drapes if you remember a while back I blogged about ceiling drapes and how amazing it would be to have my own. Well I came across this company in Manchester who make the fittings for the drapes. I became all excited looking at what material I could get my hands on. Here are the pictures of the shop in Wales that inspired me.

As you can see in the middle she had gathered the material up and it looks somewhat chunky. This system that I found makes the ceiling look much neat. I have found a video and studied it at great length, obviously I wont be doing the drilling but I know a man who can lol.

I will be making a few phone calls and will be ordering.
I am not overly keen on the fabric they have used but have an idea what I would like.
If any of you are interested in finding out more on ceiling drapes here is the website.

I pop on most days and have a gander at my blog updating myself on all your creative and wonderful updates. As I am working shifts at the Hospital I usually fall asleep in my chair by seven. I promise I will be back and full of exciting blog posts. I am thinking of doing my first give away once I hit 60 followers It might be a long way off yet who knows but I would love to shower my followers with gifts. 
Watch this space.
