Bedroom All Finished!

Well my friends it was 
WELL WORTH THE WAIT
Looooooook
How gorgeous!
The bed finally arrived on Valentines Day very romantic.
I am so delighted with the whole effect, calm and peaceful a real haven.


I really love how the fireplace turned out, so glad we kept it, the mirror is one we've had kicking around forever and is now given pride of place.
Just a bit of faffing required with a few pretty thing to complete the look.


I'm completely in love with the wallpaper it was ridiculously expensive but sooooooooooo
worth it, makes me hap, hap, happy looking at it. I think it's a real mood lifter!
And that bed is unbelievably comfy, OMG so comfy.
 Even after only two sleeps we are feeling revived and full of energy.
Fabulous


We also revamped an old brass chandelier, well I say we but really it was the work of Lovely man.
We've had this in our garage for literally years, unloved and hidden.
Lovely Man did an amazing paint job on it and now it's just perfect.


Now I know what you're thinking.
What a strange choice of bulbs?
It is isn't it. Well truth to tell these were all we had in our bulb box so they are just temporary.
The other thing you need to know is that it's waiting for some serious bling in the form of vintage chandelier drops, that's if I win them, fingers crossed to the E- Bay gods!


So what do you think?
D'you like?
I know last time we spoke I was a bit down in the dumps but I'm all cheerful now. 
Nothing like a beautiful bedroom to cheer a girl up!
I'll let you know how the chandelier turns out. I'm spending the week having a massive sort out and catching up on my crochet projects.
I've got an exciting reveal for you very soon.


All finished and waiting to be blocked, come back soon and have a little look!
Love
♥Sue♥

    1. Thank you we're loving it so much. The chandelier is a work in progress even as I type my Lovely Man is cutting the bottom off some glass dessert dishes to make into bobeches for the bulbs!

Sunday

A beautiful day here in Portsmouth. A hint of Spring in the air and the first outdoor spinning of the year.

It felt good to be outside listening to the birds and soaking up the warm sunshine on the deck.


The cats thought so too! Ghetto having a stretch.

Lord Howard(as he is now known!) relaxing! After an hour sitting in the sunshine it was on with my walking boots and off to the sea.

First stop Milton Common, the sky full of Brent Geese chattering as they flew overhead.

The Solent was particularly sparkly today.

The Hard in Old Portsmouth looked higgledy piggledy and colourful.

Then a final treat as I wandered home, a glorious sunset. A day to lift the spirits and make me glad to be alive! Hope you've all enjoyed a wonderful weekend too. Love ♥Sue♥


Back in the zone

Hello So it's been a while but I think it's safe to say that I'm back in the zone! The spinning wheel is out and I'm loving it. Loving the calm rhythmic movement of fibre flowing through my fingers, watching the bobbins fill with gorgeous colour, enjoying the meditative process that spinning is. I've been spinning some beautiful Alpaca and silk that I dyed AGES ago. It's very soft and fluffy but spins up really well wanting to be thin and sophisticated.

I've also been admiring this beauty, I know a rainbow landed on the rug! It's Milk Fibre, it take dye amazingly well, it's incredibly fine and slippery. I tried spinning it 'neat' but it proved impossible so I'm carding it with Merino.

What do you think?


I'm really pleased, I'm a carding newbie but again it's a wonderful process which I find completely absorbing.

I'm planning on carding each rainbow colour separately I'll let you know how it goes.
So how are you all? Hopefully f…
