a 'before & after' + birthdays and update...

15 March 2010



Sorry I have been an absent blogger for a whole week! What on earth has been going on?...you may ask.
Well, moving flat and redecorating...renovating a new workshop/shop/office, and two birthdays!
My latest project, started last night, the footstool, as you can see has be Artemisfied...

This is the footstool I found in the charity shop for £5. I discovered this fabric at Ikea when we recently went to buy new shop furniture. It reminds me a bit of Japanese fabric, quite good Ikea!
I used some Liberty print fabric buttons...

Yesterday, Nao turned 30! we had little time to celebrate, so we intend to visit Rome next month instead!

I didn't have time to make a card this year...but I love this one I found!

Nao opening his presents... {I wrapped up the box in an old map, and made the cover into a tag, this was removed before i could grab my camera!}

On the 10th was my birthday {32 arrrrgghhhh!!!}
These are some of the lovely presents Nao bought me, so beautiful... Liberty sellotape!! and a 'mown grass' scented candle...

and Liberty's fabric lined envelope and notebook, Amazing, no?
I also received a Hare shaped eggcup...I'll get a photo of this later!!!

So that's a bit of so far. I will be posting some photos of our new flat tomorrow hopefully, so watch this space, as they say!
Meanwhile, its painting, painting and more painting for us...the new studio is coming along with two exhausted jewellers at the helm...
