Did I ever say Pink was my favourite colour!

Welcome to all my new followers, I hope you enjoy popping in to see me now and then.  I can't promise to update as often as I would like, but I do get my 'little' moments.

I am working on PINK as my theme for a few new things / ideas I have and this is the first glimpse of a few of them

The little book stand's drawers do not open but on the other pieces the drawers are all 'working'.

The two little drawer sets (the ones with the black transfers) are for placing on a raised surface (i.e. a deep window sill / shelf table or cabinet).

I am almost finished making another bed (different from the one above) but of course it will be PINK!

Playing with colours

I love the colour pink and couldn't resist making this little cabinet in a slightly different vein to that of the French picture kitchen cabinet.  Thought it might be nice as a bathroom stand.

I love how people turn old jars and bottles into beautiful ornaments by adding bits of lace, ribbons and jewellery, there are loads of inspirational ideas on Pinterest.  So, of course I had to take the idea and make it mini.

I thought of making a Study or Gentleman's room with black and gold and have started experimenting with this also.  Apologies for the dreadful photos but I just wanted to show you what I had been up to.

and... my Italian friend, Monica sends me loads of inspiration too and she asked if I could come up with this Window effect for a rustic kitchen.  I am trying it in shabby white also, although this picture doesn't show it shabbied up yet, nor with a window sill.

Monica has just emailed me and said that my pink cabinet would like good in a nursery - nice one Monica,  thank you.
