Busy week....

Sorry for the long absence...Hubby took the week off to stand at the bottom of the stairs while I balanced on ladders to finally wallpaper the stairwell...
 Still got to paint the woodwork (5 door frames/stairs and handrails)
but loving the bright sunniness for the flowery paper :D
After a lifetime of "boything" stuffs, I think "flowery" is well over due...
 Saturday morning we decided to reclaim some of our youthful silliness...
dragged the teenthing out of bed at 6.30 am, and drove to the coast for breakfast.
Got there before the Bank Holiday rush. Seafront cafe just opening for breakfast(they allow dogs in too), had a lovely walk on the beach before sharing a bag of fresh donuts and home for lunch.
 First long trip for Roo (2 hours eachway) but she was the perfect passenger and loved the beach :D
 As to crafting.... going to a wedding on Friday.
Don't feel like wearing a hat, so made myself a fancy headband to match my frothy, flowery frock...
 it is sooooo swoooshy!!!
 and to finish..
a sneak peek at the starting phase of my creation for 
with Annie Walls.
This years theme is "Insects" mwahahaha...
*I am counting Arachnids...cos we all do*
Will be back soon :D
Enjoy XXX
