My Place and Yours - Blog HQ.

My usual Saturday post is following a theme as found here - it is great fun ! Here is my blog HQ. I do have a lap top but I usually sit on the sofa in the lounge. The lounge is central in this house so I can hear most of what is going on in other areas of the house.

The sofa is also my creative space at the moment. Because our house is for sale I have to do projects which are easy to tidy up quickly - plus I am trying to use up my yarn as soon as possible - and granny square blankets are quick and easy.

My Place and Yours - Bedside.

Pottymouthmama chose the theme this week for "My place and yours " - the theme is bedside. I do not have a bedside table - I have a bedside chest of drawers. Full of goodies. Lots of jewelery, beads, bangles and watches !
I decorated the wooden box with real jelly beans and varnished. I actually made it for a swap but it was far too heavy to post so I kept it ! Lots of glass ware full of bits and bobs .... some drawings created by my daughter.... hair straightening sprays, hand cream .... nothing very exciting !

Rainbow in my street.
