spread your wings....

Had a great day out at the crafty show yesterday. Bought some bits and bobs, didn't go too mad! Met up with Kath, my Penny Black Saturday boss and Gayle my new boss over on TeddyBo. Also spent some time with the Sugar Nellie girls, great to put some faces to names!

Anyways, today I was in Ikea. We wanted to get a rug 'cos we don't want poor Boyd (our retired greyhound who is joining us on Wednesday, yay) doing a 'Bambi' on our wooden floor! Now everybody knows you can't go to Ikea and not buy tea lights, at least one kitchen utensil and a door mat!

Well, I spotted these little wooden frames and couldn't resist. Painted with picket fence distress paint, some die cut butterflies, a bit of stitching and a little sentiment from Pink Petticoat.

See you bright and early for Penny Black Saturday.
