Vintage Kitchen Dresser

Wellllll....I have been on a bit of a spending spree with new things for the house....this was my purchase from a few weeks back. It is a nice old kitchen dresser with leadlighting. All the handles and locks are still original and I didn't have to do a thing to it. This was how it arrived. So it is now full of my scrapbooking gear...well not putting kitchen things in it.....haha haha ..hugs Nette



Penny Rugs and Altered Art

No, haven't made penny rugs into altered art....sounds that way.

Michelle has been busy making penny rugs..I made her one for her birthday back in Feb...well it was really from the birthday before. How slow as I.....but it gave her the inspiration for these.....Nice huh !!!


I have been busy with Altered Art....I like the more unusual look....and was most happy with the outcome of these little works of art.

Hugs Nette and Michelle

Vintage Scales

Well guess what arrived in the post this morning. My latest eBay win....I just fell in love with these old scales. They are now hanging from my old ladder suspended from the ceiling...hugs Nette


Cedar Cupboard

I just fell in love with this cupboard on eBay. Lucky it was nice and close for pickup. So off we went in the trusty Panel Van, yup it just fitted. Once I got it home I removed the door and took it to have the glass replaced. Then I just went for it with fine steel wool and meths...all the old shelac just melted and created this fabby colour and look. I have yet to colour the putty on the glass was an off white in the first place, but am thinking of just making it a wee bit darker?...

So what you think??? hugs Nette

Dumpster Dive Halloween Tree

Yes that has you wondering...te he...wellll last year when I was up in Townsville, visiting the kids, we went to dinner on NYE...and low and behold if the restaurant wasn't throwing out it's Christmas I am not a huge fan of black for Christmas...but the thought struck me for the kids said, here we'll hold ya handbag Mum - off ya I grabbed it..stuffed it into the boot of the car and it came home with me...

And at long last Halloween is near...The ornies are all from a swap with some dear Prim Pals from a Delphi Forum - called A Passion for Primitives 

Hope you enjoy having a peek....hugs Nette
