Yep another one of those post's,, a make over here at Avondale cottage, seems like that's all I have been doing lately.
I have had a ruff week, our little puppy Coco has had to be re homed due to rental agreement misunderstanding, but she has gone to a great new furever family, so all is well.
The rain has eased and I have plenty of time on my hands (well I have been sewing a little) as I was wondering around the sheds looking for any water damage out there (there was none yay) I came across a half tin of white paint, sooo with a little persuasion lol, Hubby used it to freshen up the toot and waiting room for me (waiting room = the name I have given the little room off the toot) It didn't quite make it so when money allows we will get some more ,as I really do want to get the bathroom painted too ;-) This is it now..
There is also a door out onto the porch from here.
I made some frilly fru fru curtains for both the little windows. Not the straightest of frills but , well that only adds to the Shabby part hehe
And a french inspired market tote to house the loo rolls. ( the picture is from the graphics fairy, printed out onto iron on paper and the bag I made from a drop cloth)
I Shopped the cottage for some bits and bobs to add a bit of somfin sumfin in here, this little bird cage is a necklace,& the cottage walls being all inside out n stuff I have these, what I like to call shelves to fill .
I am loving a few bird cages scattered around and have some black bird cage wall decals to go on when the painting is finished.
a few tea light candles add a bit of sparkle & shells add a beachy touch, not sure what style I am going for but at the moment they fill a gap lol ( funny isn't it, I live in the country and crave the beach, but when at the beach I miss the country.. maybe that's the Gypsy in me lol)
I love going through & using up my stash of vintage buttons and hand crochet doilies.
behind the door is the hand basin, I made some hand towels out of face washers & a little calico with some machine embroidery, bird cage and another with the candelabra.
Well my lovelies I think I have talked your ears off enough for now xx
hope all is well in your world and I will catch up with you soon.
Ooh we are getting chickens tomorrow , yay, so farm fresh eggs,, will show you the girls and their new home soon xx
Until next adventure
