Greetings lovely friends & readers
The day after I returned from my Kinloch trip I decided to clean out the entire Sleepout. This involves hauling nearly everything out & Hopefully NOT putting it all back in again 😉This Nest of tables had been in the back of my sleepout for about 5 years now - given to me by a customer when I ran my Craft Cottage. I was only just into painting/upcycling then but had thought I could do something with them.

After sanding the smaller tables they changed colour somewhat from the dark brown they had been. I washed the dust off them & dried them in the sunshine.
|(I'm not sure why the right hand photo is showing the cream table as yellowish)|
I absolutely LoVed this one. I used the main part of the transfer for the big table. Translated this reads "A house is made of walls & beams while a home is built with love & dreams". How perfect 💕
Cup of tea anyone ..... I can give it to you on my new/old nesting tables 💗
These little tin hearts were 50c a pair from the Stratford Hospice Shop back in this post * here *. I painted them with my testpots then added some remaining floral transfers & ribbons - they look great hanging on my fireplace bricks.
Don't you think the addition of the transfers just finishes it off so nicely dear readers?
In the midst of all my painting escapades my friend Sue came over for a visit from the city. We had morning tea here & then drove around the road to Alphra Lavenders - a gorgeous lavender farm about 5 minutes from where I live.
Sue took this lovely pic of us both in the midst of all the lavender.
Thank You all So Much for your visits today dear friends & for staying with me through this lengthy post.
Remember to be kind to yourselves & to each other,
With much love & friendship to you All,
Julie & the furry ones x0x0x
