Having reported on my blog a few weeks ago, how I felt many things at home had started to wear out (me included! ;-)) I was very happy to find a lovely old carpet runner at my local flea market that very week! It was a great price, was going to be just long enough, was in perfect unused condition and was the right colour too!
Hubby has done a wonderful job fitting it properly with spongy underlay and traditional stair rods.
I had quite forgotten how it feels to walk on good quality carpet! Having bare painted floorboards throughout our home, I'd become used to always wearing a pair of slippers in the wintertime.
Its now inspired me to think about the smaller staircase down into my workroom...
Yes, I could get used to a little luxury ;-))
Whilst I'm here, I'd just like to show the lovely cake that my daughter made for boyfriend for Valentine's Day - They've been together for 1 year! Awwww...
|Hope you are having a lovely day - I'm getting things finished and packed up ready for the V&H Textile & Fashion Fair this Saturday...I'll be back with a post soon, to show some of the pieces I've handmade for my stall.|
|Update: Belinda has used some of my daughter's wedding photographs in a post she has edited for the Kilver Court Designer Village here. :)|
