A few pics from around my home and work room.
 Current Orchid obsession.
 Wonkey donkey sanctuary.

 Oue two beautiful girls

 New sets of drawers from Ikea.  So pleased with them, as they have allowed me to free up a great deal of space in my work room.
 Trusty old Bernina girl.

 Thanks for stopping by x

I love the texture of the patchwork used in the background of this Brooch.  Lots of texture.

 Thank you for your kind comments.  We had a superb evening.  Lost in another world for a couple of hours.  I quite honestly found it really difficult to contain my emotions watching the ballet, it was so very beautiful.
Anyway, I have popped a few photos taken today of our revamped kitchen.   We bought a cupboard and shelf unit from a wonderful shop in Shrewsbury, Shropshire ... Rustic & White and I had promised to send the shop a couple of pics, so I thought I would post them here too.
Cupboard and shelf, all pretty worn and tatty, but it's how I like them.
 A metal cupboard, French I think, which we keep spices in.
 My old faithful dresser, which we have had longer than I care to remember.   Full of chipped china and oddments.
 These canisters were a gift from my Sis...love 'em.   Rachel Barker plate.
 More Rachel Barker plates.
Some of my Prinknash jug collection.
Thank you again for stopping by and for all your kind comments. x

Image from here

very happy to say that the current husband and I have tickets to see Matthew Bourne's Swan Lake at Birmingham Hippodrome tonight.   Made even more special with our girl working on the show, (wigs and makeup)  for the duration at The Hippodrome.   
My heart may burst with pride.

 Her name is Fleur.   She is a dreamer.  She wears flowers in her hair.

Really enjoying collaging paper, patchwork, embroidery, ephemera and paint
in old tins.
