Vintage Kitsch Fridge Make-Over

The sun was shining...but I was having a kinda lazy morning...I was quite happy to just sit there in my cosy pyjamas...watching morning TV...but just then my hubby poked his head around the door and asked if I wanted to do anything that day!
What I felt like saying was...yes lets go to London and have a BIG ole spend up! But lately money has been a bit on the tight side and we have been trying our hardest to save money instead of wasting it!...So I decided to get dressed....Good idea, you lazy gal...I hear you say!
Freddy was doing a bit of his scrapbooking and I started to watch him....I will show you  some of his newer creations soon...you will love them :)....we were talking about the fridge and how the wallpaper that we had stuck on it was looking very tiresome. remember I posted about it HERE
....And as you have probably guessed by now...we put two and two together and decided to cover the fridge scrapbook stylie!....it didnt take long...we had plenty of pretty papers to choose from, postcards and magnets!..Hmmm! yes sorry about that rude magnet!...I just love it though the magnet I mean!...Oh yes and the fridge...who would not love the fridge :)
...and all it cost us was £3.99 for the modge podge...which is a sealant too aparently! what a bargain...as it turned out soooooo luverley!!!!...Coz I did wonder how I was going to wipe the fridge clean!.....being as the pretty Cath Kidston wallpaper, was just stuck on with magnets!....dont worry Freddy said! if it gets dirty we can always glue on another postcard! :))))

Ahhh! what a clever idea! LOL! Gosh that fella's got brains! hehehe!

My Freddie has done a little post about it too! on his phone..please go on over and comment HERE thanks :)


Cath Kidston and Greengate in the Bathroom

Hello again Gals...I thought I would give you a little insight into my bathroom!...before we moved here we had 4 bathrooms!! yes I felt like a cleaning lady and it used to take me a whole day to clean the house...these days its a little different, with only the one, quite large, but much easier to manage bathroom...this is how we have decorated it.
I still cannot be without my Cath Kidston...although I don't really buy much of it these days...I still have a lot scattered around our little cottage...
....as you know I love bright colours and we have always collected the bright enamel pieces from France....the Cath Kidston style seemed to fit so well with it all.

...I am also a lover of Greengate and have pieces of it around the house too...they are a Scandanavian Company and sell similar pieces to CK....

...to the left in the piccy above, you can just see a piece of my bargain £5.00 Marks and Spencers shower curtain!...It was so much of a bargain I had to have two :))
This lovely Westie is a booty find from last year....we also have a black one that is placed under the sink (not shown).
I have always felt a bit odd writing a post about the bathroom!...I suppose that is why I never have! but I have tried to show you what it is like without showing any of the white goods! LOL! Coz no-one wants to see those do they EeK!
Now you can't really have a bathroom without a Royal Picture, a Rose tin and a Birdie can you!...well at least not in the Happy House :)

Speak Soon Gals :)

P.S...Hello :) I thought everyone would know who Greengate was! but so many of you have not heard of them...so I have linked the name (above) to their website :)
Have fun checking them out....its hard to decide who came first CK or Greengate...the latter has been around for just as long :)

Busy Bee Week

Hello gals I hope you have all been keeping well this week :)  I have been very busy indeed! I have listed items into my webshop...some of the pictures I have shown here of the cute pieces I have sourced for you!

I have also given myself a makeover at Happy and Rosie blog, but soon I will be filling up the new pages links to this blog, so I might be able have everything placed here...but do please check out HAPPY AND ROSIE for now and check out my cool new graphics and Freebie buttons over there.

I managed to get hold of a copy of this song book in a charity shop near me the other day...oh its is so lovely, do you remember the days when everyone used to have a good ole sing song!...Well this is the book to have...I havn't cropped this piccy, so you will be able to see all the songs that it has in it and hopefully it will take you back to the times when you used to sing around the piano with your inlaws...oh how times change!
I have also been meaning to tell you about this lovely book I have had for ages now...it has the most divine patterns for needlecraft in it although they are mainly red and blue pictures....but such wonderful patterns....so I will start to feature them in my FREEBIES section of my blog soon.  so that will be something to look out for :)


oh and I just had to include this advertising page for you to look at....it has been scanned in from the Coronation song book above...check out the prices of these wonderful rings! Phew if only they were still that price eh!

We are celebrating Mothers day here in Blighty on Sunday...and My son has come home from University to spend the weekend with us :) Good Times!...although he has nearly eaten me outta house and home already! LOL! he is having a snack now as I am writing this LOL! I can hear him chewing (with his mouth open! YUK!) all the way from here in the Dinning room - and he is in the sitting room! eating it WITHOUT A PLATE!! Grrrr! :) some things I do not miss!!! :)) ahh bless! LOL!...

I think we will probably go and see 'Alice in Wonderland' on Sunday, I love going to the pictures and it will be nice as a family to all go together.


I hope you all have a lovely weekend and those of you celebrating Mothers Day.... and my own Mother and Mother-in-law...I wish you all a very HAPPY day indeed! :)







Cheap as Chips....

We have just had lunch....a packet each of the cheapest noodles you can find in your supermarket...costing between 9p and 20p....dressed with a small spash of chilli sauce! how bad is that! I always buy these noodles to add in soups and caseroles....but when you have no bread in the house, these are perfect for a lunchtime snack!

Congratulations

Feeling Good!

Well...look what the weather bought us on Monday morning!....Lovely Lovely sunshine! Yippee! Oh I have been longing for this day!...it makes you feel alive, if you know what I mean!...I got up extra early as the brightness was shining through the window and the ideas of what to do that day were churning away in my brain!
I popped into the garden and jumped for joy! My favorite shrub was budding...could Spring be just around the corner! Oh please please please!
I tidied up the craft room and found these wonderful vintage magazines that I forgot I had (a bonus for tidying up eh!) they actually belonged to my Mum and Dad and had been kept in an old suitcase in my Mums cellar...but I rescued them before she threw them out last year.
Look at the sun brightening up the kitchen....oh everything looks so lovely!
...And look at the sun shining in the craft room on my books...I had to take this piccy...Just looking at this sunny pic is enough to make you feel good! its sooo warm out there when the sun shines...and I am always so cold...so it is a good place for me to work
Look how lovely this picture looks in a bit of sunlight....everything is bright and happy...light and bright...I sure do hope we are going to get a good warm and sunny summer!
I even spruced up the kitchen....
The sun had turned me into Bionic Woman! LOL! I had so much energy!
I added some pieces that I had been storing in cupboards in the kitchen to the garden, I wonder if those plants will ever revive themselves...a little more sunshine and a few prayers!
We have had a few days of sun and I have really enjoyed them...I can't wait for the end of the month when we put the clocks forward! I love the lighter evenings...you can do so much more with your day!

Have you had any sun where you are?
If you have what have you been upto?
