Clearing the decks
I promised myself, after the last sale, it was time to reclaim the house. No more piles of stuff on their way to a stall, I need to put everything away, organise my home - and my mind, which seems to be a bit all over the place at the moment. So, while everyone was out at football this morning, and with the sun streaming in, I set to work to make some inroads into this (and there is a lot more, out of the shot!).
I haven't seen the surface of this table for quite a few months now. After a flurry of putting away, lots of trips to and from my shed, some beeswax polish and a bit of elbow grease, it was looking like this....
You didn't really think it would end up being completely empty, did you?
The fabrics on top of the table are my finds from the Vintage Christmas Boutique at Woburn Abbey. I really didn't buy much, although I was tempted lots of times, but mainly by things such as Edwardian sheer lace dresses for £95, which was never going to happen.
At the Foxtail Lilly sale, I spent just a couple of pounds on this gorgeous little brooch:
I am delighted by this. It is so clever.
Now I am off to clear the decks still further (I hope) by putting some of my unsold items on ebay.
Hope you're having a good weekend.
PS I shall be doing a giveaway next week. Watch this space!
