Happy’s Craft Room and Vintage Finds

Hello gals…Thank goodness its Saturday…and what a lovely day again, especially now the wind has died down!…the garden took a beating last week…everything was blowing around and we had to do a rescue job with our pots and plants as lot of them were strewn all around the garden!…but today is lovely and sunny…the thought of those dark nights coming! arghh! I hate them…I love the long days and will miss them sooo much! Anyway lets get on with it – enough already of the weather! LOL!…

Oh and I must just say…I have my headphones on again today and I am listening to Radio Danzits an american radio station, broadcasting from Miami, Florida with all the latest dance tunes that I love, make sure you check it out gals…it will definitely put you in a HAPPY mood!…

Right lets get on with it! LOL! As you can see from my pictures I have been tidying and rearranging my craftroom…well I say its a craftroom, really its an outhouse come laundry room! Yes I really have packed everything and the kitchen sink in this small space…but it so needed a tidy and a spruce up, as I have been working on a few projects lately and have got into a total mess…its not hard, as the space is sooo small!

This is the finished look…all the pictures that you see here…phew what alot of colour I hear you say…but thats me, and I suppose it always will be…I love clashing it all as you know! and a good thing about having a clearout, is finding things that you forgot you had 🙂 saves you going out and buying more!!!! NOT hehehe!

I have all my past and present bits and pieces stored in cafe, tea and Farine tins and jars! Infact I would rather store my items in vintage tins and wotnot…these pieces were built to last, unlike anything that you buy today…nothing is made to last, we are living in this throw-away society…which is such a shame! BIG up the Vintage collectables LOL!

Last week I ordered some MOO cards, this is the first time I have ordered these cards and I was really quite impressed. They were a bit darker than I would of liked – but then is that me being a bit finicky!….Is that a word?! LOL! The piccy above is taken with buttons that I found at a good old english booty that I went to last week… I have included pictures of the stash. Its not often that you find a whole collection like this. I was thrilled to bits, I was cooing and coveting everyone that I got out of the bag…oooh! aahhh! Oh Look! ah lovely! ah no look at that! It went something like that! HA HA!

I have a few ideas up my sleeve as what I would like to do with them…when you have a creative mind – you just can’t help thinking of the possibilities eh! Yes you gals know what I mean 😉

 Such pretty shapes and colours, they are all sooo divine

…and don’t forget gals, to keep loading up your piccies into my two groups on Flikr…..one is called HAPPY’S HOMESTYLE DECORATION and the other is called WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY keep ’em coming gals…I love all of them….YOU ALL ROCK 🙂

Have a gr8 weekend chicks :)…I’ll be back soon with some more Happy pictures next week 🙂

Love to ya all xxLove Happy x

    I just love your blog! It is great, I love the union jack and it's lovely to see it all over in your blog. We used to live in Harrogate 30 years ago, and ever since then I am attached to anything which is british. Started with the royal family and ends up with a nice old teapot. Carry on like that, I am glad to have spotted your blog.All the best wishes from GermanySilke
