A quick glimpse ….

by Helen on February 22, 2014

That is to say, two sorts of quick glimpses…  

The first …. looking out from the skylight at the top of my house I caught a glimpse of pink at the end of my garden.  Intrigued I pulled on my wellies and went up the old stone steps to investigate.  I was delighted to find that the fat green buds on my early flowering camellia had burst into brilliant bloom – and so I simply had to bring some indoors to enjoy …..

 They’re the same pink as my newly painted chair!  I’m in the middle of redecorating my kitchen in honour of Rosie & Dan’s wedding later this  year and was inspired by the lovely ice cream candy colours used at the Winking Prawn beach restaurant in Salcombe where I took them for Rosie’s birthday lunch …..

 Will be sure to post pictures when it’s all finished!  And the second quick glimpse …. just a peek at the cover of the new issue of the Bustle & Sew eMagazine – that’s the March issue – to be published on Thursday….

I think it’s rather pretty (though I say so myself) and I do hope you’ll enjoy the projects.  I haven’t quite finished putting the preview together yet (my pesky slow internet is holding things up), but I’ll post it tomorrow so you can have a proper look at the contents.  

And finally …. I can’t possibly post about decorating without including a picture of my canine “helper” ….

Daisy helps with the painting!

 Yes .. it’s that naughty Miss Daisy – complete with pink streak!
