Good Evening All
Hope your all well...and the sun has been shining for you
today...its certainly been shining here...and
what a difference a bit of sun makes.
Line full of washing,housework done and dusted earlier
in the morning!
So while hubby was pottering about in the garage
with his motorbike!
I made this gorgeous(if i must say hang in our bedroom,at first wasn't
sure where to put it...but its now hanging
on my new bed..yes new..its about 2weeks
old....and Ive been wanting a metal bed for years.
The bunting is made from tea towels(the rose & blue check fabric)
Yes tea towels....
from the famous bargain shop
B&M' just 1.99p for 2 towels.

Last weekend i also treated myself(hubby didn't have a say
in the gorgeous Rose Patchwork Duvet Set
from Argos at just £ can just see the pillows!
So as you can see...a bit of feminine touch in the bedroom!!!
Living with 3 males is our house its not football or Rugby
(Well Done To The Welsh Boys Today...Oggy Oggy!!)
its motorbikes,superbikes and what do you
think...a bit of pink & floral??

Here is a close up of the bunting
I'd not even ironed it yet..couldn't wait to try it

Here are the tea towels from B&M Bargains

Also this afternoon we had to pick a few things up from the local
Sainsburys....and while walking round...a light bulb came on
and i remembered about this magazine the lovely Lynda - Hookin' With LaaLaa
Had mentioned about on her blog yesterday.
And i must agree with Lynda..its a great read..lots of projects in there
and you get these lovely free stamps...look at that cupcake stamp,and
the bunting I'm a card maker as well....these stamps will
defo be used on lots of cards!!
Also walking from the checkouts on my way out
there was rows of shelves of reduced CD's,DVD's & Games
so noticing the big round orange stickers on the CD's
i couldn't help myself and stop to have a look..and i found
tucked away behind Take That,Boy zone...i find The POLICE
album..OMG..i just had to have it on tape
and just love fav has to be Message in the
So at just £3 i couldn't leave it there!
Right that's me off...fingers crossed for the lottery
