Tape another little piece of my heart now baby…

old tapemeasure on old records Someone lovely gave me this beautiful tapemeasure on the weekend & it’s especially good cause it’s in inches!  I actually haven’t done any sewing for years but I still love my sewing basket cause it reminds me of when my mum used to make clothes for my sister & me (then […]

Dirt graffiti

Dirt graffiti on delivery van door So this made it to my ‘happy list’ cause it made me laugh. It was a couple of weeks ago & we had just finished moving house (always awful!), I was exhausted and over it until the guy closed the van doors and…comedy gold!
