And The Winner Is!!!

The results of my give away are in.  Thank you to all of you that left me such lovely comments, and a big hello to all my new followers.
I won't keep you in suspense any more......

Aided by my glamorous assistant with a hairy arm.

The winner is...Delia Hornbook of Dee Dee's Vintage Retro Delights, Congratulations Dee, please email me with your address, hestanesta@hotmail.co.uk. and I will pop the bits and bobs in the post to you.
A big thank you to all of you who entered, I wish you all could have won.

After all that excitement I have also been busy making this week for my web site.  I have made a pair of these sweet little lamp shades covered in vintage eidy fabric, a bit of a sod to do but I am rather pleased with the outcome.

This is a larger one also covered in vintage eidy fabric.  Remember the lamp shade frame from my last post, the one that came with the Cherub? I stripped off the dreadful silk covering that came with it and Voilà!! this is it, re-covered.  

This is a hard one to part with.  I recently bought some gorgeous French fabric from the lovely Shirley from Simply Château and decided to have a go at another giant bolster cushion.  They look stunning displayed on a large bed, and I really want to keep it but have put it on my website.
Enjoy the rest of your week and let's keep our fingers crossed for some sunshine at the weekend.
