Friday Fabric Finds

Friday seems to be my great day for Fabric Finds!!!
I just wanted to share the very bad photos (Sorry for the bad quality, taking pics late at night in bad lighting) of the couple of great pieces I got on Friday, just to add to my ever growing collection
A stripey chenile quilt in very good condition.  I am seeing a dressing gown and maybe winter PJ pants for Oliver from this.
A gorgeous green seersucker tablecloth in perfect condition.  A top or skirt for me I think.
This is a really gorgeous yellow and white stretch sateen - not sure but maybe a tote bag from this.
And a little piece of cute french linen. 
The pictures are very sweet and I love fabric with text on it like this.
I think this could make a great set of cushions or mounted on a canvas for a wall hanging.  But there is no rush to decide, I have a million other things to do before I get to this one.

Front doors and cable reels

I would love to paint our front door.  At the moment it is red.  Unfortunately it does not have any beautiful detailing like my friends front door (pic above)
But I may steal their colours and paint it white and grey which will match the rest of our house.
I love the doors to their kids bedrooms, they are matching and have gorgeous coloured glass.  I could only dream of a door like this as our house is not this old.
Beautiful !
So one day I will paint my front door. 
But for now we have been doing small little projects around the home like building a new guinea pig cage and a coffee table for our back deck.  The coffee table was made from the cable reel I found in a skip recently.  Husband went to Bunnings a few weeks ago and bought the castors for it.  On Sunday my daughter and I stained it with oil and then husband drilled and fitted the new wheels.  We enjoyed a champagne that evening watching the sunset before dinner - it was quite lovely. 
Here are the pics.....

So there it is.  Another project crossed off the list.   Yay !!
