But this wee blue cosy is one of my absolute favourites. Sometimes a particular colour combination really hits the spot.
In my last post I showed a picture of some gorgeous old chairs I'd found. Well in the same week I managed to find a retro coffee table and this lovely little vinyl footstool for an absolute bargain (the table was the grand total of $2.50 on Trade Me!!) - both of which will go nicely with the 70's chairs.
But as much as I loved it in its original condition - it had a wee bit of damage and was screaming out for a makeover. I had the perfect fabric in mind after spotting it in the shop a few weeks ago.
Oh look - there's Bella soaking up some sun. She moves from one chair to another depending on which looks the warmest at any given time. What a hard life she has!! Did I mention that these chairs are perfect crochet chairs? Lots of room to move my arms but also just the right height to rest my elbows on while my hands are busy. I'm really proud that we've found these lovely older pieces and given them a new lease of life. When I worked on the woodwork of the chairs I found the original labels underneath them with 'August 1975' on them! They're almost as old as me!
And amongst all the pretty colours and girly projects it seems only right to pop this picture in from Mr 8's birthday party. He had a Trash Pack party and for his birthday cake I made him lots of slime cakes. It was so much fun to make cakes that are meant to look gross. The boys thought these were great - they decided they looked like pooh and slime - and they were a total hit. Hilarious.
I hope you all have a fabulous week. See you again soon.
