 Just some things/people that brighten up my home...
I'm doing an offer of £50 to capture your little darlings on camera  until the end of April. (I will travel to you for a little extra cost!)

If you're interest you can see more of my portrait work here.
I hope you're having a good week.

A little project


I scored this adorable little dolls cot on ebay a couple of weeks back. Needless to say it was in a sad condition and in need of a fresh coat of paint & a new fabric on the base.

We set to work, Jemimah & I. She actually helped a lot and seemed to see the potential it had, instead of the scruffy old thing I initially arrived home with. A girl after my own heart.... :)


She got really into the sanding and painting bit!


...and I discovered tacking fabric onto the base isn't too tricky... and actually quite fun.

Here's the result of our efforts...



 
ta-dah!

I sewed a little cloud cushion to go in it out of an old vintage pillow case I picked up...







 and how could I not include this cheeky face...?

There's nothing quite like the satisfaction of giving an old, discarded piece a new lease of life. :)

Thanks to whoever sent this enamel cup & net curtain to the charity shop...

happy daffodils blooming on our kitchen table... spring is on the way people!

...

Seriously need to whip out my bw film that's been sitting in the fridge for far too long...


It would be quite nice to get some studio time again...
