Finds, Laces and Florals.


An op shop find over the weekend, a gorgeous signed floral oil painting. Another one for my collection. Professionally framed (I like that),and with a huge ornate frame (I like that too!). 


Playing with these gorgeous European laces over the weekend. Swiss, Austrian and French. Sounds like I have had such a cosmopolitan weekend, and I have...entertaining our relations from the UK has been pretty time consuming - another two weeks to go!









I have been wanting to make fabric flowers for a while now and I did sneak off to my craft room for an hour or two to use up some of my fabric scraps. These are what I made.




I love them!





Also picked up this piece of retro hot pink fabric. I can feel a couple of cushions coming on!




...and this piece... my favourite...
...hot pink peonies and aqua hibiscus!
Come on summer!




To be honest with you, I seem to post over on my Facebook page more regularly these days. Please come over and join me on my Petals and Vintage page. You will be more than welcome.

Enjoy your week.

What beautiful goodies, you are such a talented lady. I must say, your photos are so good, including the ones over on Facebook. I have been meaning to tell you that - I'm just much of a commenter on FB.

Love it all Pam, especially the painting, I have one similar and only paid $10 for it.

I didn't realise you had a facebook page, I post more on mine than my blog too, it is just easier and quicker!

Will go and find your page now :)
