Sorry for not blogging for so long but like for everyone else life has been pretty hectic.
We finally found some time to decorate the house and I made my Cath Kidston paper chains. I used the Cath Kidston christmas gift tags too add a little extra.
We found a beautiful but enormous tree ! I decorated it with lots of different coloured vintage glass baubles as well as old family favourites collected over the years.
Mr C hung the beautiful cupboard he bought me in the hall. He painted the inside a lovely chalky white. I am using it to display my collection of Victorian painted and enameled glass.
Next to it we hung my £2 charity shop mirror. This is a lovely old heavy and ornate mirror. It was in a bit of a sorry state but Mr C has done his best to repair it and painted it the same chalky white.
Yet another cupboard ! Mr C found this at Brackley Antiques Cellar and it fits perfectly in our back room. It isn't really a cupboard but a glazed book case. I think we probably don't need any more cupboards as we are running out of space.
Finally a few more finds, the yellow Golden Dawn coffee pot was found at the local tip recycling shop and the Beryl Woods Ware yellow cups and saucers the same day in a junk shop. I was very pleased as yellow utility ware seems to evade me usually.
I guess this will be my last post before Christmas so have a wonderful time. I am off now to find my wellys and brave the snow.
