I've also found it quite liberating not having a phone...not sure I would want to manage without it though!!

Hope everybody is still awake - apologies for the mammoth post. Think I'll have to post more often so I don't have to blather on for so long. X

The cake plate and the little shot glasses were from one place, and the pretty plates, scrabble letters (It was a game but just kept the letters for craft ideas I will probably never get round to!), aswell as 4 paperbacks were from another.
No glass candlesticks today and I also missed out on a pair of curtains in a liberty style floral fabric by seconds! A nice lady got there first, who told me she was going to turn them into a throw for her daughters bed...so i didn't mug her on the way out for them! Better luck next time!
Think we may turn tuesday into thrifty tuesday! I also saw a big pine table in a 2nd hand furniture shop, it was shut so need to pop in there and check out the price - I could be 1 step closer to my mis matched chairs and table plan!!

well it looks hideous! I am not even taking a photo - and I am so over using gloss paint! I had great success with F&B dimity but I wanted a similar look to a dresser I saw on this blog post, the colour is just gorgeous, but after 1 coat of dulux sea blue my cupboard looks pap....so tomorrow (or more likely Tuesday) I shall be donning the power tool (sander!!) and getting as much off as I can before slapping on some baby blue emulsion. If anyone uses emulsion on the pieces they paint - please let me know how they look finished and how they wear. x
I shan't be defeated...and I will be back with pictures when I get it right!!!
In case you are reading down under Max....Happy Birthday....hope it was a good one xxxx
