Last week I was off at the hairdressers to get my unruly locks tended to. Having my hair done is a treat in itself as not only is my hairdresser a good friend, she also does a fantastic job. I have to travel a little way to get to her but that doesn't bother me too much as not far from her is a Spotlight and a Bunnings store. I went to Spotlight looking for a particular item which I found out they didn't stock but what I did come home with was this.
The most beautiful quilted coverlet and two pillow shams. I love the colours and patterns, so appealing to the boho side of me. The most amazing thing about this purchase was the price which was reduced by $100 so I paid $60 for the coverlet. Bargain. I couldn't purchase the fabric for that price.
I recently purchased some books from the Book Depository with money Mum sent me for my birthday. I chose arty crafty books. One is about making your own stamps and the the other two are books about creative lettering and mixed media art to help me with ideas for art journaling.
There is plenty to keep me busy in these books.
Work on the studio is continuing with hubby working on the roof and roof insulation. Yesterday I continued painting the outside with the help of my niece. The last couple of months my niece who is training to be a paramedic has been visiting us and we have been spending crafty days together. We have so many interests in common and it is a joy to be spending time with her. She stayed overnight Friday so we had more time with her which was lovely. She made us the most amazing pecan and coconut slice which is delicious and perfect to have with morning coffee.
Today it's raining so work outside has stopped and to be honest hubby and I are a bit weary and a quieter day is probably a good thing.
Have a fabulous week.
