Whats On Your Work Wednesday 150......Last weeks Cards!

Hi Wednesday Blog hoppers! Not lots on my desk this week with regards to hands on "craftiness" but these are last Wednesdays completed 6 cards I promised myself I would do! And I only just cleared my desk on Monday! That was good for me, as I am a tidy freak, I went a whole 5 days without doing anything!

My desk now for the next week at least will be focused on re-decorating my front room! I have been perusing various design books for ideas & furniture colours. I have decided on the colours for the room. Farrow & Ball Pavilion Gray & White. I have a curtain pole to paint two pole holders. I am also going to make some Voile curtains. I really would like my sofa re-covering but still deciding on that one!

The Decorator has just made a start & filled the cracks & holes in all the walls, quite a lot really! Looking forward to seeing it finished later this week.

Finally I found another wall painting I took in Nice France that advertises the famous Nice Carnival. I think the Clown has a bit of a sinister grin on his face! It was very well done & full of detail. I love the colours in it, very Cote d'Azur!
Hope everyone's keeping well & warm in this Winter style weather we are having. Its freezing today here. Thanks to everyone who visited last week & commented on my desk. I got round quite a few last week due to skyving, when I really should have been doing other things. Saw some lovely work going on & found my trip around the globe truly inspiring! If you have not joined in yet & would like to show us your desk & what's on it then nip over here to Julias Blog at; http://stamping-ground.blogspot.co.uk/
you will find out how it works & how to enter, we would love to have a peek at what your up to! Have a creative week everyone, off to peek at yours!

Love all the cards you made. It is important to take some time out when re-decorating - you never know it may even inspire you in your cardmaking! Regards, Anne #30

Hi Lavinia,

Oh, I love looking at decorating books!! Are you on pinterest? I have started collecting colors and living areas on different boards. Then I'll go back and see if there's a common theme. (I actually did a color post a few posts back).

Can't wait to see your finished room. It sounds like it'll be lovely.

Hugs, LLJ #7 xx

Making my slow meander around the Wednesday desks still. Your cards are really beautiful, Lavinia.

And what a lovely time you're having with the decorating. I always think of my home as my outermost garment, and therefore reflective of how I like to be.

Must confess this prompts to think of a couple of things I want to improve :-)

Best to you,
Ros. #124
