Shopping and Advent House progress ….
As usual the spoils from my weekend shopping are still on my desk waiting to be used or put away – on Sunday I went to my first car boot of the year …. not a lot to be had, except for …..
….. this tidy pile of narrow ribbon – a 100 yard reel of brown, 2 x 40 yard reels of black and teal, and 5 x 6 yard reels of white (x2), blue, cerise and dusty pink – all for £5.50, I was dead chuffed!
After the boot sale I nipped to Asda and got these two toothbrushes for 10p – what a bargain …… but you’ll have to wait a while to see what I am going to do with them!
And do you remember these? Galaxy Counters … yum, yum, yum, I use to love these when I was a kid ….. now they will be a workdesk staple!!!
Tesco Advent House Progress …..
Last week I said my drawers were sticking (??!!) after I had painted them, well, I sanded them down a bit and they are now sliding perfectly, BUT I now need to touch up the corners where I sanded them a little too diligently, aghhh!
I have also covered one with paper, as a tester, a bit fiddly, but after 5 or so I hope I will have perfected the technique. I have given it one coat of Modge Podge Sparkle, but it could do with another couple of coats, and the little knobs I made from Poundland beads and square gems have turned out a treat, just another 22 drawers to go …..
