Lucky lucky me

I'm lucky enough to have attended a couple of Barb's (of Theodora Cleave) Day of Play events. Huge fun and organised by lovely Karen at Mrs Martins Quilt Shop.  There's one coming up in April. Barb also sells her wonderful Theodora Cleave buttons and other goodies on line.

Here's the adorable rabbit thread holder I purchased a few days ago, such a bargain at $4.50.
While visiting Barb on-line I saw she is now selling some of her amazing little paintings.  These are not prints, each is an original painting on linen.  A truly beautiful work of art.  I had to buy two. Look under the Other Interesting Things tag in her shop.  Again they are a super bargain, between $7.00 and $9.00 for original little works of art.

Can you imagine how thrilled I was to open my parcel and there was my very own blog title, painted just for lucky, lucky me.  Huge thanks to Barb, I adore it...in fact I adore everything.

How about a bit of upcycling.
There is a fabulous tutorial HERE.  Enormous thanks to Ashley at Lil Boo Blue for sharing it with us.
Have a wonderful day
