Love lost and Found

I found this LOVE sign in Sainsburys for .10p and couldn't keep my excitement to myself!! (sorry Sue) As soon as I got home I re-painted it and crackled it to soften the colours.




The cute birds are from the "Tilda" range from Panduro.......I have fallen in love with these beautiful images and am going project mad with them.

When Laura Ashley first said they were doing papers I imagined them to be like this but they still haven't reproduced their old classics that I first fell in love with as a child. But this range (from Tillys) is in my favourite colours.

Basic Grey Wholy Cow rub-ons and a few trimmings and voila this will look so sweet in Georgias room with a cute photo of her and our sadly deceased dog.

Lost: somewhere in the bowels of our house my tub full of old lace...can I find it no!!!!

Lost: my mobile phone cover....courtesy of little miss..can she find it no!!!

Lost ; many hours when I could be crafting looking for above items!!

Love and pastels Ruth xxx
