I wanted to show you my little tables, which I picked up at a car boot for a total of, oooo, £4 recently. I'd been looking for a nest of tables for some time, but I wanted glass tops, and those aren't so common it seems - or the glass has been broken. Anyway, these turned up and it was a fun little project.
I love this Laura Ashley paper - it's on my daughter's patchwork wall. And now it's persuading me to keep the tables (I had thought I'd sell them, but I don't think I can bear to).
The blue isn't as powerful as it appears - it's an LA colour, and is very chalky. It goes perfectly with the paper. So I'm a happy bunny again.
I love autumn, once we've got back into our routines. It's been harder this year because of two of mine starting new schools, but all seems to be well so far. My yr 7 got a bit upset today, because she'd lost something and had to go on a bit of a trek around unknown corridors to sort it out, but a year 9 looked after her, while a year 10 gave her a hug. That so wouldn't have happened at my school, and it's typical of the whole ethos of the school. I'm so pleased for her. When schools work well, it's a lovely feeling.
One of the things I particularly love about autumn is it means plenty of opportunity to have...
Lovely warming stews with oodles of dumplings. I'm sorry - I just have to post a picture of food, because Melmel and Angel are making me so hungry lately. :-)
I've been tagged, by April at Cake makes the world a better place, and thank you for that, but I'll have to give it some thought!
And with that, I'm off to bed. Nighty night. And thank you once again for all your comments. I love reading them. xxx
