today's made by me




ok so I seem pretty normal to you right? well I though I would share a few things I have done a round the house that I prefer to think of as creative Mike might have a different idea about that.A couple of yrs ago I wallpapered the bedroom floor with beautiful vintage wallpaper, my daughters dog peed on it so I had to paint over it.I am still loooking for enough paper to do it again.I turned a cabinet upside down so the stubby little legs look like finials and put it in on the bathroom wall.I wallpapered a tiny bathroom floor with vintage greeting cards. I use those vintage velvety almost gaudy bedspreads as rugs.The upstairs bathroom really has a throne... we had no room for pipes so they had to be run across the floor, the solution raise the toilet on a platform.I painted the backsplash of my stove bright red. I go to the junk yard and look for home accessories,so far I have found two great sinks there,one porcelain and one restaurant stainless steel both with draining boards.I have inside furniture on the porch and garden furniture in the kitchen.I had a dinner party, and with not enough bowls I used all the majolica plant pots from my collection for the soup... it looked amazing I might add.ok and one last thing its not about my crazy house stuff it really say's more about me.I ran to the car on my wedding day with a roll of toilet paper in my hand, I couldn't find tissues and of course its captured on film (^_^)

I've never thought of wallpapering floor! That's one way of ensuring that it wouldn't be washed except as needed!! I enjoyed your comment on mushy peas; I haven't had mushy peas since I lived in the UK over 1 decade ago! It quickly brought back memories! Thanks for giving them a stir!!
