bits of my weekend...

I had a very exhausting weekend, all-in-all. We spent all of Saturday working on the new studio. The painting just seems to go on and on! So we are both tired and aching today, but even so I couldn't resist doing some work on the shed. So I just a bout managed to put up a few shelves and start the first coat of paint inside.

I have also purchased a few additions for the flat, like a vintage wicker lampshade for the bedroom, and yet another crocheted granny blanket! I'm also addicted to buying flowers, I love the colour of those tulips.

...in the garden, the growing is so fast and I'm desperately taking photos as the buds and leaves fold out...it's amazing! ...and a sneaky photo of a neighbours shrub, with dangly flowers, I love it!

and here is a photo of me in the new RUST studio, after we just managed to get our first bit of oak flooring down, what a bloody job it is! I can see why there are actual people who just lay floors for a living...
anyway, we haven't finished it yet but it is looking better all ready!

have a lovely Sunday evening everyone!
