happy loves rosie on Television
I have been out and about lately, furniture shopping with my Mum and also my Son Daz, they both have cash to splash, unlike me, who has always liked to buy second hand! A bit of a bargain hunter is me!

Daz has recently bought a 50 inch Television for his flat...I can hear you all gasping at the thought of how big this TV is!...yes it is humongous!...we have a van type car and it just about fitted in there, when we bought it!
Anyways...he has been looking for a Television stand to put it as you do I looked on Google and found Furniture Plus, they sell the most gorgeous oak furniture...Daz is like me though, he likes the painted white wood furniture and is seriously thinking about investing in the lovely Television table above...

My Mum on the other hand loves the more traditional Oak unpainted furniture that they also sell, but recently she has had her Living Room decorated and wanted a new nest of tables and she has also fallen in love with this set above from the same store!

But as for me...I am sooooo in Love with this...white oak chest of drawers
...Beautiful Chest of drawers...oh honestly! What I wouldn't give for these pieces of furniture! Now don't get me wrong! I still love my old vintage furniture...but I am also lusting after these pieces! I feel my life would be so organised with these drawers in my life!

...And as for this dresser! *sigh*
Need I say more...!

A gal can dream can't she!

What kind of furniture do you like to have in your home?
Do you like old or new?
Or a mix of the two?

Bye for now my lovelies xxx

 craft table mixed media tim holtz
My Freddy has a new craft studio!
It's actually sited in our bedroom next to the bed!
He has been confined to the bedroom lately, as he has torn his tendon in his leg making
getting around rather awkward!
messy mixed media craft
...and you know how he loves his I decided to move one of our wardrobes sideways, facing the bedroom door, so that it created this Narnia space...all 4ft of it!...we were then able to fit a lovely old sturdy dressing table like these from Fortune Woods, in the gap creating lots of storage and work space...
craft room space
I then made about 150 trips, up and down the stairs, carrying all of his many many craft materials into this creative Narnia cubby hole, where everything is to hand for him.

We are off to the hospital next week to see about him having an operation and if he does, (which is highly likely) he will have to have his leg in this space will be well worth it then!
craft room bedroom space
I managed to get him a few bargains for the space too!
The Luxury office chair was bought for £20 on Ebay and 106 artist felt tips were bought for £10 at the boot sale, normal price would have been well over £200!

His artwork is displayed on his flickr account if you are interested...
What unusual decorating have you done lately?

June Haver and Betty Grable, 1945 

I happen to use a lot of bobby pins, what with my hairstyle and all, whether I am wearing a quiff or creating my victory rolls...a bobby pin is never too far away from my reach...Having said all that, the worst thing about these clever little that they seem to be scattered all over the place and especially on the floor!...wherever I go, there is a trail of grips behind me!

I have that 'want to make something' I thought I would get inspired over at Pinterest...and you know how addictive that can be!

I am so glad that 'Swing' has a big following these days...I remember when I was a young girl, my Mum and Dad used to go to lots of Dance's at the Royal British legion near to where we lived...I used to tag along with them if they couldn't get a babysitter and if I was tired they would make me up a bed of coats along an array of chairs where I would try to sleep, as they were having such fun dancing the night away!
