Spring was here but now it's gone and an Orchid update

As I basked in the morning sun, having my breakfast and admiring the daffodils on the table this morning I thought that spring had finally reached the west of Scotland. By 1.30pm we had hailstones the size of golf balls and heavy, heavy rain!!! I think it'll be a while yet before I can watch my washing fluttering in the breeze! Oh well, while indoors....

My Orchid hasn't been touched for many weeks so I've been busy getting things back on track.

I've made, or rather assembled and painted, all the bathroom fittings. This is from a kit by Chrysnbon, which I love. I'm sure going to have lots of fun accessorising this room ... once I've decorated it of course!

Also here's a sneak preview of the 'wallpaper' for the bedroom. I was browsing the rails of ribbon in Hobbycraft and came across this - isn't it just gorgeous!!!!!

I will make a card template of the walls in the bedroom and fix this ribbon to it. I can't wait to see how it turns out.

Mini hugs to everyone x


  1. Very nice!!!
    Chrisnbon is in plastic ?
    it looks like porcelain!!

  2. Thanks Maria! Yes, these are plastic kits. Left unpainted they have a fine, smooth finish. I'm really pleased with this set.

  3. I love that ribbon!!! And that is a really neat bathroom. The only Chrysnbon I have used is the rocker and coal stove kit which I had very good luck with. Cant wait to see your awesome rooms.

  4. I do like the idea of using ribbon on the walls. I will be very interested to see how it works.

  5. Looking forward to see your bathroom!

  6. I love your little bathroom set. I'm going to have to start looking for some kits.

  7. Great idea! I'm looking forward to seeing the finished room. Gill x
