clever ideas to try...

The blogging is going to be brief for the next week or so. I'm off to Newcastle on Wednesday for the third attempt at mum getting through the operating theatre doors...fingers crossed that all goes to plan this time. 
I think I'm more than a bit distracted at the moment. I walked straight past John Travolta in the lobby of the hotel I was staying in on Thursday night. Didn't have a clue until the guy who got in the lift with me said he'd just shook his hand. Oh well.
I was doing a bit of blog cruising yesterday, while I was supposed to be burying my head in a work report (and not a book - my usual weekend practice!), when I came across this site...and some very clever ideas that you probably could try at home if you wanted! Half a globe used as a bowl...with the best country front and centre of course...
massed plates on a bathroom wall...
a Christmas centrepiece....I've done this before
lace trim on old tins...either real or stencilled
Now, I just need to find some time!
And I'm sorry, but there's an online shop as well...I have my eye on this...
The top ten is scheduled for Wednesday as usual, but I'm not sure what the week will hold after that. So, I'll see you when I see you. Take care : )

  1. Hi Kerry. Hope the week goes OK .. see you blogging when you get time. Best wishes for your mum.

  2. Fingers and toes crossed the op happens this time, Kerry. Your Mum couldn't be *that* unlucky, surely. I enjoyed this post. I have some lace tape I may try out on some silver - thanks for the idea! J x

  3. Best wishes to your mum. Look on the bright side, it could have been Travolta flying the plane, and the destination could have been Scientology land...

  4. I hope everything goes to plan Kerry. Take care and have a good week x

  5. I hope the operation goes ahead - good luck for your mum. Have a good week. ;-)

  6. Fingers and toes it all goes well. Happy Monday.

  7. Thanks for sharing these ideas, they are great, will definitely try the centrepiece.
    I really hope that your mum can finally get through those doors, it must be so frustrating for her and for you all. Best of luck.

  8. love the globe idea, that's v. cool. i'm laughing though because when i went to click on the link to the site, the little window that pops up had the address, which i read as one thing, and then when i got there i realised it was clever sofa, i was thinking it was a diy site called clever s of a. haha. was thinking "what a good name for a diy site"!!

  9. ok, its not even clever sofa, its curious sofa. my brain is like the worst kind of predictive text there is!! no wonder i get into hot water regularly!!!

  10. Wishing all the best for your dear mother. And thank you for all the inspiration!


  11. I think I'll give that Christmas centerpiece a go this year.
    Best of luck to you and your Mother x

  12. oh how i love that globe idea! wishing you a wonderful week ahead, kerry!

  13. Kerry my best wishes for your Mum and fingers crossed that this time she actually gets through those doors.xx

  14. Thanks for pointing me in the direction of a new blog busting at the seams with great ideas Kerry.

    I'm on the hunt for an old globe now......Mrs Primary school librarian, you see that old, out of date globe up there......

    Hoping the rest of the week pans out well.


I love it when you comment...I feel excited, chuffed and tranquil all at the same time! Thank you.
