This week I have had a whole week away from work. I have plans for the weekend but first Mr C and I decided to tackle the kitchen. It took a whole day just to empty it in preparation for decorating !
Once started I decided a bit of a sort out and clear out was in order. I have just so much stuff ! I have spent a few hours today just listing things in my Etsy shop.I rarely get round to adding new items and tend to sell things that I have had for a while and decide I need to let go in order to de-clutter or to make room for more ! I found this lovely old 1920s photo album amongst a pile of books. This is now in my Etsy shop, the link is in the side bar on my blog.
I haven't started on the floor paint yet but have done the door frames.
This is a sweet handmade 1940s brooch. I have had it for ages and although I love it I have never worn it, so being ruthless today I decided to let it go.
I have tried to catch up with housework, scrubbing the bathroom and tidying out the airing cupboard.
I can't believe how dirty the house had got, I blame the dog for bringing in mud and other bits of the garden with him.
I have had a number of these Horlicks Mixers and love the red lettering on them.The handmade bag is lovely but I can't decide what it would have been used for.
I have closed the door on a couple of rooms in the house to try and block out some of the mess. The spare room I had sorted out only a few weeks ago is now full of the entire contents of the kitchen.
I decided to let this little chap go as I realised I have a ridiculous collection of assorted dogs !
I have thought about doing some baking but sadly the kitchen really isn't in any state at the moment.
I haven't been renovating lampshades although I have one in serious need of some help. I would love to know how to do this.
This tin was a tough one. I have a large tin collection and always have a display of floral tins in my kitchen. I do love this but it doesn't quite fit with my others all of which are decorated with roses.
I have a large pile of vintage aprons. I can't resist the lovely vintage fabrics but I guess I have to let a few go.
Finally this evening I have had a few hours to put my feet up and plan the jobs I need to get on with tomorrow.
