French Buffet

I love all the old French furniture you can get over here and I have just bought this beautiful
Oak Henri II Style French Dresser (1880 - 1900 ) I love thinking about who had this and what type of house it was in originally, I was going to paint it but after I had polished a bit of it I felt it would be a shame to paint over all the wear and tear it had had so it's staying this colour

Stitching Faux or Real


Over at Ooh la la this fortnight the theme is Stitching and I adore stitching on cards
whether it be real or faux, I did try to do real stitching but I have a problem with my sewing machine
the thread keeps breaking, perhaps it's because it's about 60 years old, so I resorted to Faux

We have some sad news this week as Dawn has decided to leave, she has a new grandson who I am sure takes up a lot of her time as well lots of other things she would like to pursue, We would like to thank her for everything she has done and hope she still pops in from time to time.

The good news is that Anne has agreed to return and take over so things should carry on smoothly

I too have chosen an image from The Shawn Jenkins Collection I love this CD
This one is called " Tis the Season " and you can purchase your copy
over at Ooh la La Creations Website you can also see all of the fabulous samples the Design Team
made for the show in the
