Vintage wallpaper bunting for Christmas

We've been decorating our home for Christmas - I made some mini card bunting from vintage wallpapers, wrapping paper and cotton thread. They're sewn together on the sewing machine so are quick and easy to make. (If you click on the photo you'll get a close up!) I've hung some under the mantlepiece and under shelves.

New Pinterest Board - things to make for children

I've created a new Pinterest Board to my site which includes things to make for children that don't involve sewing!

60s Kandya Sideboard - gingam formica

Those of you that have followed my blog for a while will know that I have a thing for vintage formica and 60s furniture. I recently found this 60s Kandya Sideboard (old kitchen unit) with it's original gingham formica top and sliding doors. It's now a home to all my violin and piano music left over from my days of when I used to teach. The lovely apple cushion is from one of my favourite shops - Pomme De Jour.
