Greetings lovely friends & readers
Early last month I had a 3-day "window of opportunity" where I had nothing much planned (no Babysitting, Appointments or urgent Orders requiring attention) ... so I decided to empty out & paint my spare bedroom.
I had two newly-acquired Decor items for my spare room & both were sitting still in their wrappings in the back of my Wardrobe. I thought it was high time I got them out & put them in their rightful places.

I emptied the room out & gave the walls a thorough wash down - I planned to paint them the same colour (Cottage Cream) but they definately needed a scrub with sugar soap first. I gave them 2 coats & The Mr also gave the ceiling two coats - what a difference a fresh paint job makes to a room 💗

The first new item I had was a blind which I'd had made back in January to fit the larger window in my spare bedroom. The smaller window already had a blind in this fabric & I had cheap tatty old calico curtains at the bigger window.
The second new item I had was this Stunningly Gorgeous Quilt which I had purchased from my dear friend Leeanne - also earlier this year. I had watched her make this Low Volume Log Cabin Quilt using offcuts of Vintage Linens as she would send me sneaky pics as she completed different blocks ... & I had fallen in love with it.
I did not think for one moment she would ever sell it but she has opened A Felt Store & is selling lots of her handmade quilts now. As well as her professional quilting business, she also enjoys making quilts to sell herself & is rather a whizz at it 😉
This heavy old Oak bed was rescued from my daughter in law who no longer had room for it.
