Bits & Bobs

Todays Inspiration

I absolutely adore this picture from Rachel Ashwell's blog!! Been doing some creating round the house today and used this picture as inspiration...
Not quite as good as Rachel Ashwell's...nearly there! haha!
"All that we see or but a dream within a dream ...Edgar Allan Poe" these words are handpainted round my dining room.

My vintage chandelier
Monogrammed Napkins and vintage candlestick holders from Rachel Ashwell Shabby Chic Couture
Precious Treasures
After all the lovely inspiration from Rachel Pallas on her blog of her flower garlands...Today my daughter made this homemade flower garland...such a clever girl! I love it!
