I love the rawness of this weeks post. It’s such a simple idea which needs very little work, and it doesn’t even need hanging up! Just prop it up against a wall, so its easy to move when you get bored with your room layout!
A word of warning though if you have youngsters, make sure there are no splinters, other wise it could be OUCH!
It seems an absolute age since I held my sisters vintage inspired hen party. But as promised here are some of the photos of some of the little details of the special day. I made each hen a heart shaped blackboard necklace, of which they could decorate with their own chalk pen. You can buy blank wooden hearts on ebay, and a good quality chalk board paint at good DIY stores if you want to make these yourself!
I also made some drink charms, plenty of bunting, and a notice board (with the help of my best friend!!) for everyone to leave a message on in the form of vintage postcard. We played Mr & Mrs, and pin the kiss on David Beckham, whilst we ate copious amounts of lovely food brought by each of the girls.
It was an amazing afternoon, and the evening was just a lovely as we met up with the Men and went for drinks in a local bar.
Please do excuse some very rushed photography, as i barely had time to take perfect pics as frankly we were having way too much fun to be worrying about photography! Which is how any special day should be 😀
This week im feeling romantic…Its 9 days until my sister gets married! It’s all very exciting and nerve-wracking!
I just recently held her a vintage-ish tea party for her hen do, I promise I will share some pics soon, although I will pre warn you now I didn’t have time to take many as I had so much to do.
To be honest I cheated when I came to sugar cubes on the day and just bought a small box from Tesco’s, having never bought sugar cubes before this in itself was quite exciting…yes I really did find buying sugar cubes exciting, oh dear! But had I of seen this before, it could have been a lovely addition to the table!
What could be sweeter than a little bit of love in you tea?!

Today I am feeling quite awful with a cold (oh i know… awwww!), so doing a little bit of browsing for this weeks Thrifty Thursday post has been a lovely escape from feeling sorry for myself!

Ok so this week me and my dad have joined forces and are trying to get some picture frames painted for my sisters coming wedding. So as and when i have time and the energy i do a few minutes here and there of painting these frames and pegs. My sister bought the frame from a pound shop, and then we have used dulux paint to paint them blue and cream. The cream takes absolutely ages as its so fiddly to get half decent, but between us the job is getting done very slowly and i am really liking the vintage inspired look. The paint is matt so it looks like plasterwork when dry, and the colours are gorgeous. I just hope we do a great job for my sisters big day and get all 11 done on time!
I found this on http://scraphacker.com a lovely idea of using an old step-ladder as a shoe rack. This got me just a little excited as I know out in the back garden behind the greenhouse currently lies a small set of steps from an old bunk bed…Im thinking this could be their destiny!
