A little bit of decor ...

Good Morning 
I thought I'd just share a couple of little things I've added to my home recently ... But before I do I just want to say Thank You to the ladies at Just Us Girls challenge for awarding me an honorable mention for my notebook in my last post ... I am delighted!

The other day  went into Salford Quays ... (little did I know that Prince Harry was in Salford City that day ... we could have met for coffee ... I don't think) ... So whilst I was there I came across this gorgeous  mobile ... I just could not resist it ... But is is hard to photograph ... take a look 

The top opens like an umbrella and a swirl of birds and stars and tiny silver bells hang down

Made from white sparkled mulberry paper ... each bird and star is puffed out ... so pretty

How could I not buy this? ... and it was in the sale for under £9 (That's around $14) ...
This was also something I added to the same room recently ... 

I love these rusty metal containers ... I have various jugs and plaques like this ... I get them from a store in Stockton Heath and they are really inexpensive too ... This one I dressed up with (fake) lavender 

Another one of those metal plaques with my handmade one

This blue metal jug came from the Ikea sale and I added some flowers made from serviettes and some lavender from my garden

So there we are ... a little of what I like and what I'm about 

Have a wonderful weekend my friends 

Thanks for stopping by
