Happy Finds and a bit of DIY

Happy Finds and a bit of DIY is what I got up to this weekend, I did get out and about aswell though and picked up this lovely vintage scottie dog postcard…it so reminded me of a picture I had taken earlier in the week….aahhh! Bless, look at Max and his new best friend, he has taken to him rather well! and loves to play and sniff his bits! another bad doggie habit! LOL! Thank goodness its only a plush toy dog…otherwise I think he would of got fed up with all the attention by now!

I also re-arranged the kitchen and added a shelf here and there….I am getting very good at DIY! well if banging a few nails is DIY then I’m ya gal!

Another little job I got around too, was sewing up our worn out armchair….I just love that worn out look…but it was getting too worn out on the arms….so I sewed them up with red cotton, and I loved how it looks now….soooo shabby chic!

Above…a corner of my sitting room, where my shabby chic armchair lives.

nd below…my shabby chic, sewing repair.

I’ll be back later in the week to show you some more pictures of my progressing garden and fab bootsale buys.

    Love the enamelware! I found a fantastic enamelware tea strainer at the weekend that was in useable condition. There was a colander and grater as well but they were a bit too rusty; if it isn’t usable it doesn’t get past my OH unfortunately! x
