My furry baby Fergal, taken today on one of our usual gentle walks, so fit for a pensioner ,can,t bare to think of a time when he wont be with us..... my little love bug.......
flowery over the top ness,so pretty,and only £3...how could i resist????
cabbages and roses .
Just realised you can just see me in mirror, red face hidden behind camera, luckily for you!!!!
This is an old French chair , one of a pair , Keep wanting to cover it with different fabric ,but a bit scared of ruining it if I do it my self, any tips , any one else tackled similar project?
think i will put in in to my sitting room as a throw over my sofa, looks nice on my old french chair , but do,snt fit in with my colour scheme in my barn room , or may be the bedroom,decisions, decisions... love the faded , muted shadeds of the quilt , my poor mans cabbages and roses!
fergal and I resting our weary feet, ..... just realised I have odd socks on, better not let my son Nat see this picture as I,m forever telling him off for odd sock wearing.....
Yesterday I walked 10 miles , no .. the car had,nt broken down and I had heard a car boot sale was on , I went hill walking with my husband and his Friends but not intentionally..... see on Friday evening he asked if I wanted to come for a couple of miles gentle walk, I was hesitant to accept my Husband,s kind invitation as he is seriously in to walking, climbing and outdoor pursuits , don't get me wrong I love walking in the country side ,but not marathon yomps! Some of the guys he walks with are mountain rescue so I reckoned I was in semi safe hands and said I would go as I am still trying to loose the last 7 pounds and need SOME exercise....... well we walked and walked and walked up mountain and dale, I was accompanied by my 16 year old Norfolk terrier Fergal, I made D promise to carry him in the rug sack if he got tired , after walking ,puffing ,whingeing my way up one particular steep fell side ,I begged D to carry me in the rucksack!!! On the fell top it was so cold there was 3ft of snow, and cold.. my god.. I try ed to eat a banana and it was ice Lolly like, my green and black,s choc bar ( small erm ) was so solid after sucking it for 5 Min's still hadn't melted, are you getting the picture ... sorry no photos as no way I was removing my gloves, think the blokes were sick of me as I kept quoiting Scott of the Antarctic.... D had more sense than to ask me if I enjoyed it....( but secretly proud of my self i managed it!!) Is the beepy wind burned ,frost bitten red face look attractive ? This morning I was rather tired , but hay the car boot sale was on and walking round a car boot sale is VERY different..... there was quite a few stalls , the boot sale is an indoor one about 4 miles away...... but recently I hav,nt found many treasures, but this morning I found a fab quilt, I spotted it under some cushions under a stall , and as soon as I saw it I knew it was me. I think it is very cabbages and roses, faded reds and creams and in great condition, I hugged it to me and asked how much? £2 , yes two pounds .. , sold to the lady with the red frost bitten face! I love cabbages and Roses , When I was in York ,there is a fab department of cabbages and Roses in Jigsaw ,I always go and look, but seldom buy any thing because out of my price bracket., but still drool ( not literally ) over the fabric and clothes, so am delighted with my poor mans cabbages and roses. Also managed to get vintage Italian flowery candelabra light fitting, but I will adapt it to put candles in, when I showed D , he said WHERE are you going to put that... I think he dis pares of my flowery passions, its hard living in male household.
