A good friend of mine gave me this lovely heart shaped hanger he said he didn't know where to put it and it did not match with his interior, of course I took it with open arms.
I liked its original colour and it was rusting in some places but as you all know what ever enters our home has a magical dosing of Mrs Sloan. As I searched the cupboard for "Original" a beautiful blend of cream and white I was in shock... It had all dried up. So I boiled the kettle and added a dash of hot water and gave it a good mix. Not only that I had also run out of paint brushes so I found a sponge attached to the carpet cleaning solution "Needs must in a Annie Sloan situation".
A few weeks back I picked up a bag of assorted ribbon for £1 a good few meters "lucky me".
So I used a sponge and literately wiped over the hanging rack with the diluted chalk paint, I did not want to achieve a solid colour as I wanted the original colour along with the rust to be seen. I attached two pieces of the vintage lace either side and made a large pretty bow.
Instead of a chain as this didn't come with one I decided to improvise and use lace ribbon, over the top of the bows I cut two extra long pieces and tied them to the frame. I hung it up in the window but will be taking this to the new house. I have thought of various ideas in which this can be used....Dried herbs, pretty jugs, lavender and pretty jewellery.
I bought this bird cage a few weeks ago I love the colour and how its painted unfortunately I did not paint this but its pretty big in actual life. It has a candle holder fixture inside.
I can not wait to find this beauty a home.
Whilst out window shopping "as you do" I saw this heart shaped metal shelf and I could not resist, the shelves can be lifted up so you can alter the size of the shelf.
These two items where purchased from...... wait for it.... TK Maxx.
Other exciting news we have booked a night at Alton Towers Screamfest on Monday, the three of us will be having a mini break for two days and shake off the stress of waiting for our new home. Sometimes its important to make new memories and to cherish Eason's youth we all need a bit of fun in our lives. The theme park will be Halloween themed and is open till 9pm filled with fun and frolics. Here is a video of what is to expect.
Its a good Job Eason is pretty placid.
I am so excited.
