I could say I am very crafty person. I do decoupage, crocheting, scrapbooking and always like to try something new, to find where could I be the best. A couple of weeks ago I found some beads I purchased long time ago. I wanted to make something with them. So have a look what I have made.
Once I was watching french interiors on internet when saw those beautiful framed Trumeau mirrors. I had to get one, and started to look on ebay and some other pages. For sure I found not only one, but prices wasn't very friendly... Then I thought I can try to make one. I ordered everything I will need for less than 60£. It could be more than half cheaper, if I would have wood board and old mirror, but unfortunately I hadn't. Here is how plywood board looked like
It's 70x90 cm. I had to use some wood filler, as there were many dents.
Here you can see how it looked when I primed and fixed dents. I made a frame around mirror from wood moulding.
Sorry, I won't show you pictures of later steps, as it was evening and they are very bad quality.
But here is the result!
I can't hang it on the wall, because still waiting for heavy duty picture hanging hooks, so brought it outside, to take a photos.
In early September Stephanie hosted tea cup and mug exchange party. I signed for tea cup exchange as well as other more than 100 ladies. Each of us had to send tea cup to one ladie, and received from another one. So could make two friendships. I received my from Deborah M. Just look what I have got!
Amazing, isn't it?
Here are some close up photos.
Tasty tea and delicious sweets
Beautiful embroidered handkerchief
Tea time magazine, which I was looking to order, but lucky me, got it without ordering :)
And most important thing - the most beautiful tea cup I ever had! It's Royal Albert Dimity Rose.
Thank you Deborah for all these beauties and of course thank you Stephanie, for giving an opportunity to make friendships in all over the world.
It's October already here and I can't understand where does all summer and even one autumn month has gone... I was so busy during my summer holidays back in Lithuania, that had no time to post something. I was planting many lilacs bushes, weeding, wattering and doing other summer works outside. I will show you everything in my future posts.
Today I wanted to share with you my newest purchases, that I am very happy about.
I was looking for this kind of chair for quite a long time, but always I found it was too expensive or too far to pick it up. But one day I found just what I needed - affordable price and seller suggested deliver it to me for a small fee. Very happy! Maybe in the future I will paint it white, because now it's some kind of yellowish colour, which I don't really like. Another item that arrived couple of days ago-beautiful ruffled throw, which could be used many ways decorating at home. If you like it too, check it out at shabbyfufu, she sells them many colours http://shabbyfufu.com/category_32/Linen-Closet.htm I also bought dusty pink and thinking about grey too.
And finally is crystal chandelier. Its so beautiful when catches sun light or when lights is on. I didn't hang it yet, but very wanted to show you.
Thank you for visiting me today and have a great weekend!
Warm and sunny here today, so I was in a mood to make a very girly tablescape. All girls likes flowers, dresses and pearls, so my tablescape is all about it. Lately I found four cheerful and beautiful plates in a charity shop and I couldn't leave shop without them. So take a look.
Every plate has beautiful dress and matching accessories on it.
These two I didn't use today, but still wanted to show you.
Ikea candle holder, which I use as ice cream dish.
Grace's teaware teapot, that most of you have, but for me it was quite a treasure to find it on ebay in UK.
So which plate is your favorite?
Hope you enjoyed visiting me today! Have a great week!
Calendar shows 1st of June and that means is summer finally here! Let's go and celebrate this day outside as it's warm and sunny there. I always wanted to set up a white tablescape and today is perfect day for it! So please, enjoy!
I made mascarpone cheese fruit tart today. I really like this dessert!
Beautiful Haviland Limoges plates!
Thanks for visiting me today and your comments are always welcome!
Good morning this Tea Time Tuesday. How are you doing these days? I am well and very happy, that weather is nice and warm and I can spend more time outside than in. However, today I will share some photos of tea inside, as these were taken couple of weeks ago, when lilacs were still in bloom. One morning I received a copy of Romantic homes magazine, which inspired my to make lilacs tablescape. I enjoyded every page of it, especially that there are photos (on cover and some inside too) from my favorite blog http://warrengrovegarden.blogspot.co.uk. That blog I had read many times from beginning to the end. Hope you visit and enjoy it too.
I can imagine myself lying on that bed and sipping tea.
Do you like lilacs? I love it!
I am leaving you with tea and lovely fragrance of lilacs. If you know any company that makes good lilacs room fragrance, please share with me. Thank you and see you soon!
As the weather gets warm, I am starting to dream about summer in Lithuania , where my home and heart is. Especially that I already booked my tickets for whole 2 months starting on beginning of July. Today I wanted to share with you some of my last summer photos.
This is my little garden cottage house.
From other side.
These arches we builded last summer. You can see Dahlias are blooming, my grandmother's favourite flowers.
This is my english rossarium, I am thinking to plant some more foxgloves, lady mantel, etc to make it look like cottage style.
This arch were built few years ago and has honeysuckle and clematis growing from both sides. I really like the smell of honeysuckle!
This is how the house looks from the street. My grandma still lives there, but one day it will belong to me.
Thank you for visiting me today. Althought I didn't share any tea related things, I hope you enjoyed watching my photos while drinking your favorite cup of tea.
