My sweet Little B, worn out from his morning session at Toddler group, fell asleep in his pushchair during the walk home. So after a quick lunch of poached eggs on toast, I went straight to my desk to carry on where I left off with yesterday's Playtime.
Oh stickers and scissors, how happy you make me! How therapeutic it is to spend some quiet, uncomplicated time folding, sticking and snipping.
This is what I ended up with, a cute little string of papery prettiness.
If you had been a fly on the wall here at number 24, you would have witnessed me rushing about the house with this bunting string, upstairs and downstairs, trying it out in a huge number of places. I really did fancy it along a shelf of some sorts (this image has firmly lodged in my mind), but we are surprisingly short of shelves around here. And nope, the Shelves of Doom are not worthy.
I really do need more shelvedge. Pretty, decorative, brightly painted shelves to display pretty, decorative, bright things. And of course I will need to make mini strings of bunting for my pretty shelves, goes without saying.
........this is where the mini sticker bunting ended up, just to the right of where I'm sitting now.
Dangling sweetly above the hooky pen pots.
I love that the light from the window nearby makes a bunting shadow on the wall. Love that.
Ahhhhhhh, what a satisfying afternoon.
I'm thinking I'll make a start with the embroidery-thread-rose-idea during tomorrow's Playtime. Something sweet, frivolous and floral to look forward to.
Edit to add :: the abstract canvas, beleive it or not, is a very cheap printed plasticky material stretched over a frame, I think I paid about £2.50 for it in one of those "home bargain" type discount shops years ago. There's something about it that I love, although I can't quite put my finger on why. Hmm I wish our walls weren't painted peach.
