Whats Up?

I have been indulging my love of vintage finds and giving them a new life! This bag for storing garden clippers was created out of a tray cloth.

I still get a kick from adding those labels!
I have also made up some "fresh" retro-ish cushions from a "found" tapestry. I added a small boquet of beads from the local Woza Moya shop nearby.

Shhh! Don't tell my PIF beneficiaries - Estelle, Jesse or Heloise about these. I don't want to spoil their surprises!

Love the tray cloth! Love how you're not scared to use a light colour for potentially dirty clippers.
Promise I won't tell anyone about the surprise 'til I've been to the post office (-:
