My 1950s Vintage Caravan

Hi Everybody,
I have a place to go to be quiet,Miss Grace to play house and a summer evening place. Its not quite where I want it to be (it's in the front Yard) but Its a good place to dream.
                                                 She has a little deck for sitting in the sun
                                                                   A pretty kitchen
                                                                     All the mod cons
                                                         And some not so modern
                                                      Lots of vintage aprons and table cloths
                                                          Some future dreams of the past
                                                                  Bright 1950s colour
                                                                         And spice
                                                                  All the kitchen needs
                                                                  Pretty pot holders
                                                     And a reminder to keep it real
                                                       So she sits waiting for summer!
                                                                        Cheers Lyn

sewing not sleeping

Hi Everyone,
There's been lots happening in my nearest and dearest lives and I've been a busy girl helping everyone out and neglecting my own sewing needs (not to mention the housework). however I had a chance today to get some sewing and other creative pursuits back on track.
                           There's nothing like a few Linen T towel cushions to get me on track
                                   and a few more(really like the London underground one!)
                                        OK I ran out of cushion inserts but the colours are great
                                       There's always a Lacy number waiting to come out
                                                        and a pretty little floral dress
                                                               Long line lacy vest
                                         And now for something different ! mixed media collage
                                  Old napkin,photos vintage lace and all manner of bits
                                                            All turned out OK I thought!
                                     so that's about it for today I had better start cooking dinner!
                                                                         Cheers Lyn

A little Turkish delight Up-cycle

Hi Everyone,
 We have had a four poster double bed with a canopy hanging around at home for quite a while and I've been wondering what to do with it, I was going to keep it for Miss Grace for her bedroom.
However we live in a small house and she doesn't  really have enough room for it.
So I thought what a perfect up-cycle project for a Day bed and then it started getting a little out of hand and ended up being well, a ...Turkish delight!
                                                                      The basic
                                                            Miss Graces photo opp
                                                                   The Finished product
So Its going to make its debut on Saturday night at my friend Johns 40th Birthday party and then it will make its way to The Vintage Shed next week to find a new home!
                                                                          Cheers Lyn
