New from Ikea.

Well now that our Indian summer is probably well and truly over, and the nights are definitely drawing in, and getting  colder, these new fabric from Ikea are just  the ticket for keeping warm.  Inspired by traditional maps,  sailing ships, and paisley, and  printed onto velvet and 100% ramie, they are sure to be a cosy edition to any home this Autumn.  Check out the details at Livet Hemma blog.

Metal mesh memo board upcycle.

Here's something I up cycled recently, a bit of old metal mesh that has been given a new lease of life with a few coats of Rust-Oleum spray paint, I'm a big fan of spray painting and have done my fair share of the  tin can make over, like this one, and recently I received a few more cans of Rust-Oleum spray paint from the company, so now fully armed with primer and paint, I have a few more little projects in mind to try out, I have an old Anglepoise lamp that is serious need of a make over. There is plenty of inspiration on the ideas page of the site to check out, have you tried your hand at spray painting anything yet?

lazy Sunday Mornings...

I thought this was a really  squishy quilt when I first saw it, but it is in fact rows of Ikea pillows sewn together to create a billowy duvet, how cosy would this be, perfect for lazy Sundays in bed.....
