a crazy week

What a busy all started last Saturday after work, when my friend and I went looking for bits of furniture to do up.Ended up getting a sideboard,chest of drawers,a half table and some pretty rose china.My friend got a lovely round table with 4 chairs for her new home that she will paint and make beautiful.We loaded up the ute with as much as we could fit in.

Then Sunday hubby and I laid carpet in the bedrooms all day.Boy I have found muscles I did'nt know existed.This renovating thing ceratinly keeps you fit!!Back to work Monday and then some sadness when our dog passed away in the early hours of Tuesday morning ,which was my daughters 14th birthday(of all days!.He was a great dane and was 11 and a half which is a pretty good innings as they usually live to about 10.We are all heartbroken, but at least he is'nt in any pain now.They become part of the family,dont they?
That same day my Nan had a fall so I took her to the doctor and then for xrays.She has a broken knee cap.....ouch!!!In between all this we managed to paint a couple of the bits of furniture which I will show you here.

This had lovely gold stencils and texta all over it.Now it has a new life in white with pink crystal handles.

This is the little half table that had heaps of laquer on it.Looks great in the shop.

These are some lovely tassels I decorated.Click to enlarge if you like.They have a cute heart shaped button with bling on them.Pretty!

Another candle I also decorated.Love the bling buckle!!

A cosy pink throw with some new flowers on top.And underneath is an old crochet bedspread that has been freshly laundered and came up a treat.

And a pic of some other lovelies.

So I have filled you in on my crazy week....hope the next one is better!
Have a great weekend

  1. Hi Lucinda...
    Yes what a week it's been for you! get that sometimes don't you?
    As long as everything works out in the end that's the main thing, I've sort of had a similar week to you - but I must say your lovely rosy photos cheered me up no end

    have a good weekend ~ xo

  2. OH so, pretty! I love pink and favorite combination. I am so sorry about your sweet dog. We have lost so many over the years, and it's such a heartache...and poor Nan! That sounds really painful. Glad you got some projects helped get your focus on something pleasant, which is good. Happy Birthday to grandgirl just turned 15...they grow up so fast! Hope your muscles are feeling better! Have a wonderful week-end...relaxing! Mary

  3. Hi Lucinda,
    Oh, your poor Nan. Pass on a cuddle from me!
    Your latest buys look fantastic, I'm sure they won't take long to sell.
    Have a good weekend.

  4. OMG Lucinda. What a week!!! I'm so sorry to hear about your dog and on your daughter's birthday too :(((( I have four dogs and I know how precious they are. And your poor Nan. I hope she is coming along okay. Your new furniture looks great and I LOVE that candle and those tassels. At least there were some good points to the week. Hope the coming week is a much better one for you :)))))

  5. Hey Lucinda,
    Wow it was certainly a big week. Sorry about the passing of your dog, they are always just like a member of the family.
    Hope your nans knee gets better quickly, gosh I can't imagine how painful that must have been.
    Love the new pieces of furniture, will try & get in one arvo this week for a look.
