  5. What a lovely idea. How do you make the holes in the China without breaking it. Very gently I presume.
    I always take advantage of the mr leaving too. He has caught on, and is now forever warning me not to paint anything while he is gone ;-)

  7. Hi Sue, l just discovered your blog through Shabby Vintage Junk and spent a lovely half hour or so trawling around. Specially loved the lamps and your daughters wardrobe doors that you painted. Fancy your Nan being a ballet dancer. Time's so unkind. Wonderful.... thanks for sharing. Hope your American holiday is awesome. Bron.
