Organisation and declutter needed!!!!

Hello Lovely peeps!!
Please excuse that rather long disappearing act...it really wasn't planned....illness, school holidays, gardening, friends....well basically LIFE!!!
Have taken a little break from work and getting my house in order!! You know I have paint that has been siting there for a good year ready to use cause we just haven't had time to do it....Well I think its high time that we do something about it!!!!!
Also Car boot season has started and I'm finding lots of treasures to revamp and show you!!!
SO fancy a photo catch up??
Firstly I have to show you these Lil gorgeous birdies that have now resided in my Birdcage from the lovely Alison from Vintage Amethyst... They have been called Sweet and Pea x Thanks Alison xx


My Girly Terri has recently chosen to become a Christian which I was Most pleased about! She chose me to be the one to Embrace her with a warm towel after she went for her dunk! I was the first person to hug her in her rebirth...I was overwhelmed...oh and very wet after a big bear hug...did not think that one through fully!!! LOL!! The day was amazing as was her church and its parishioners....it was a very Emotional day and I was fighting back the HUGE lump in my throat, but broke after a very heartfelt and beautiful version of Carole Kings 'you got a friend'...so proud of you Terri x x x
 Then Easter came as well as family friends and LOTS of Chocolate!!!!!
The Easter Sunday Table
Handmade Easter wreath.
pretty pink flowers
 ...even if they are a bit shabby!!
Here are a few of my Car boot finds do far...I will be back soon for a more detailed post when I have completed some trash to treasure makeovers!!!!!
a great tall candelabra and something that resembled a birdcage so HAD to to have it of course!!!
 This FAB teapot from a well known website which I have been hankering after for ages!!! and a cute dumpy little jug both found at the carboot for £1 Only!!!!
 These heavy Beautiful Vintage Curtains bought for £5!!!!

 And this set My friend bought for you'll never believe it...£2!!!!!!
It has lots more Cups, a coffee pot and teapot with all the trimmings!!! And Coffee tastes SO good from those cups too!!!!!
 This other little set was Another bargain that she bought....All this for £2!! It was missing a  blue jug.....Guess what Annie had in her collection??? Of course It deserved to go back to where it belonged!!!

 So after both me and Aidy being Ill with Flu for the Majority of the Easter holidays I promised to get better in time to take him out for a day trip to London before he went back to school...so off we went to the Natural History and Science Museum...unfortunately my camera ran out of batteries but I did manage to get these few pics x
 Aidy recording his findings!!
 Love his attempt at spelling diplodocus!!!
 and me and Aidy exhausted after a long day

Not sure when I'll pop back..got me some decluttering and organising to get done!!! Enjoy the sun hunnies xx
Until next time
A

Finally, your back to blog land! Lovely pics & congrats Terri on your rebirth.

If you need help painting, I'm all yours! I love painting & DIY. the trade off will be that you have to look after Cass or take her out while I paint! Lol! I'll let you think about that!! Enjoy the bank holiday weekend!
