Decoupage and Freebies

I made my first attempt at decoupage today. I bought two mannequins from Matalan for £1 but they don't really go with my bedroom so I recovered one with a pretty CK tissue. It's far from perfect but I like how it turned out and I will be doing the other one in the pink version.

I've been looking for some nice storage for overflow clothes for a while and then came across these in a charity shop for £1 each. Bargain! (The stickers say £2 but I haggled). Plus they are perfect colours to go with my blue and cream bedroom. They are a little bit musty so they are being aired and sprayed with febreeze before they take up residence under the bed!

And finally, good old Freecycle! I got this 1901 Singer today and I love it so much. Will have to hide it somewhere as I already have a 1950s one on a treadle which dh was not best pleased about me buying! Still when it's free you can't say no, can you?!

  1. How good was that sewing machine find in freecycle! It's gorgeous, I so want one of these ;o)

    So glad to hear I am not the only one who has trouble with good old Mrs Beeton! I must try the victoria sponge then ;o)

    Loving your blog and see we both have the same throw from Matalan, isn't it gorgeous! x
