Just popped in to say hello, I'm still here, but Mr. Bloom and I are taking our annual leave so I'm extending my blogging break for another couple of weeks. The DIY is progressing but the house is still in chaos and we need to concentrate on that so we have some livable space. Though we are squeezing in another mini-break - Sussex this time, a part of the country I haven't seen a lot of, so I'm very much looking forward to it.
I haven't got any crafting to show but I hate to post without pics so here are a few things I've acquired recently.
Two pretty tin canisters:
A perfectly preserved rose in a paperweight.
This gorgeous cottage print called 'A glimpse of the lake'. I have just the place for it but I'm on the hunt for a frame first. Mr. Bloom isn't keen, says it's a bit too chocolate boxy - but that's exactly why I love it. Don't you agree?
This vintage coffee grinder - I was most amazed when Mr. Bloom didn't object and even agreed it could go up in the kitchen - which it has. It won't get used as we don't drink much coffee, but I'm sure I'll find something small I can store in the little glass container.
This little gathering of vintage goodness is being put away for a very special event later this year. You've probably read about it on other blogs by now. I'm very excited to be taking part and it will involve lots of making too, but I'm saving it till next time to tell you all about it.
I would like to say a big thank you for all the comments on my last post - I will get back to everyone after my break, and the awards too, which I'll also show next time.
Must go now, missing you already!
