Listen to the rain

Let it soothe your spirit. Smell the freshness. Hear the patterns. See the cleansing. The way trees and plants drink it in. Feel the renewal.

Bee happy ..... swap journal pages

I am taking part in a journal page swap this year and have finally got around to sharing our first pages.
Corrina from Dark Visions and Beautiful Reveries sent me this beautiful page.

The lovely Debi from Puddle Duck Grange sent this gorgeous page over.

A wonderful dreamer image from the clever Rosa Lily

And lastly my page which I sent out to everyone.

I just need to work on the rest of the journal pages to share with each other.

I had to share these rooms with you, they were too gorgeous not to!
Been to France for a couple of long weekends and these were the rooms we had in different chateaus.
Red and white toile.

Reception area of the hotel.

Blue and white toile with cream linens.
My idea of heaven!

Bee happy ....... finished stool makeover

My stool makeover has been successful at last!
If you remember the screw was peaking out on top which I covered with tape.
Unfortunately the napkins weren't thick enough to cover this tape and would need many several more layers to work.
I had an idea of using red and white spot fabric instead which worked perfectly and covered the tape really well.

I cut the fabric to size and put mod podge over the stool and put the fabric over.

I put mod podge around the edges of the stool but didn't use it on top of the fabric so it didn't look too shiny. But at least the edges of the fabric shouldn't lift up where they have been folded under.

I am really pleased with the finished stool and it goes really well in Mr Happy's office with the red, white and blue theme :)

Bee happy ...... update a stool

We have this twisty wooden stool which is so handy but it has been fixed several times.
The screw in the top is appearing through again so I decided to finally do something about it.

I put some gaffer tape on the top of the screw so hopefully it shouldn't come through too quickly and got out my Mod Podge and some spotty napkins.

I'll let you know what the finished stool looks like!
