Oooh La La!

Hello ...
I hope you are all well ... My sweet friends in New Orleans ... I hope you are all safe my thoughts are with you ...

Just a couple of things to share ... Wednesday I had a whole day to just please myself ... DH went on a golfing break and I made some home decor ... 
My Aunt gave me some lovely boxes a while ago and having recently decorated the conservatory (in a sort of french theme)  I covered the boxes to tie in ... the photo is not very good due to the weather conditions ... but this is the result 


The other thing I did was a little wall art ... 
When I am out and about ... If I see things that "just may come in handy" I get them.  Sometime last year whilst in Ikea ... I saw what I think are frosted glass and metal doors ... they were all boxed and about 50p each ... Yep, I thought ... somehow these will come in handy so I bought a few and this is what I turned one of them into


Being glass it is the hardest thing to photograph without getting myself in the shot!


So the shadows you see are me ...
I was going to use the image transfer method ... and not having a laser printer I went to my local Library to ask if their copier was a laser ... after much debate it turned out not to be ... So it had to be plan B ... I printed my image onto Acetate and using scor- tape attached it to the glass ... then cut borders to cover the tape ... It looks quite effective IRL.

I had a great day ... my son and I stayed up till the early hours chatting ... something we don't get to do often enough ... mind you I was so tired yesterday ...

So that's it for today ...

Thanks for stopping by ...

Have a lovely day
