i would like you all to meet
it is no-where near finished yet, i have most things sorted into boxes-my photos, memiorbilia from all my trips away, cd's, codys old toys which i cannot bare to part with, old copies of 'country living' magazines.
we are putting in more storage in our living room for our large dvd collection but for now they sit on the shelves
all of the 'stuff' on the floor will be gone soon and the two shelves of 'stuff' that can be seen above the wicker basket (holding mismi and inca's playthings) are swampys modelling things-paints etx which will be going into the 'man-cave'.
i plan on making some blue gingham curtains to hide the less than nice looking boxes
you can see why i have done no crafting for a few days...pictures that need hanging and swampys radio controlled boat he is building and a couple of boxed models (he is a big fan of building models!)
good grief it looks so untidy!
as you can see evangeline is not taking up any room at all and her basket is sitting safely on top of my parents kitchen cabinet...another thing i cannot bare to part with. our bread maker is stored on top but next week i tackle the kitchen and will make room for it.
the little section of shelving you see here will have a curtain as one shelf is dedicated to stock piling the long lasting foods we have in the camper.
i bought a new chair which is a folding one and swampy is going to put me a hook behind the door to keep it away nice and tidy when not being used.
as you can see by my posting photos it means i have replaced my broken card reader, which means a new post of what i have been crafting over at my *alittleeclectic' blog
now make sure you have a nice cup of tea because this is what else was on my camera...
we had a blue sky walk where is was foraging hips and haws for a potential project and i saw what i think is either one of the nightshade family or guelder rose up among the sloe bushes...
we had a lot of rain recently and the 'watersplash' reached the 1 foot mark...
but swampy drove us through in big old pretty pagan!
the weather now calls for my gorgeous green boots teamed up with a new dress which i am so in love with!
a cup of afternoon chai...
i had a serendipitous moment when taking a load of things 'down the tip'...i have had an idea for my crafting...about taking my crafting in a slightly different direction that would need storage jars.
as we were driving down the lane that leads to the tip i was pondering this very question and thinking where to buy the little jars to store dried berries, leaves etc....
only to find these in a box at the tip...
there are 18 altogether, one without a lid and i bought them for 50p!
on the way out of the forest we went via the ornamental drive as it was round up day but we missed all the excitement but i always enjoy this particular drive that takes us past rhinefield house
and now it is time for baked potato with garlic butter!
