First post in blogland.

Dear all
Well here is my first post.
I'm off work this week and thought this would be the right time to start my venture as a contributor in blogland.

The picture I have uploaded is a wall cabinet that my Husband fetched home for me. I reckon he could see the potential in it as it had just been thrown in a skip by its previous owners. (He also brought two other wooden wall cabinets needing tlc)
Well I am loving it now and after lots of TLC by Mr B it now has a new home on my wall!
The little handmade bird was handcrafted by a very talented lady who I work with.
Nicola you really should come into blogland and share your talents.

The pattern for the bird is from Attic 24 who provides a very clear and concise tutorial for this, thanks Lucy for sharing everything you do!


  1. Well hello Heather (great name!)
    Your cabinet looks great, what an amazing find. It looks so good with all your things in it too, and I love your attic24 birdie.
    You're going to love blogging :-D

  2. Dear Heather,

    Wow! Those cabinets are GREAT finds. I'm need of one at the moment and wish that it would just fall out of the sky. You have them fixed up and arranged beautifully.

    Curlew Country was the first real blog that I had ever seen. I found her because of Rhoda Parry's blog "Countrydays" for her magazine - "Country Homes and Interiors". I love Steff's outlook on life. She seems to just know what everyday magic is all about. She really uses her blog to be a chronicle or diary of sorts and I really admire how she doesn't cave in to blogging "tactics". However, what she does is to just make it her own.

    I LOVE blogging! It's so fun! I hope that you find the same!

    Love, Katy Noelle

  3. Hi Heather welcome to blogland hope you enjoy it as much as I do, pop over for a visit :)

  5. I've been putting my foot in my mouth left and right this week. (oh, funny! What did I just write? Is that left foot and right foot? sorry - ahem ...) Anyway, a little after I left that last comment, I realized that I should clarify that, what I mean about Blogging "tactics" is not so much about actions but about attitude. Just hoping that you have lots of fun!

About Me

My photo
Hello and thanks for visiting me. I'm Heather and this is all so new to me. I am a big big fan of other peoples blogs. I love all things quirky and different in my life and my home, mixing the vintage and the new together. Having mastered the basics of crochet mainly through the internet and a lovely lady who had the time to sit down and show me just how it was done I am now quite addicted. However I need to learn how to stop skipping from one project to another! I'll share my 'projects' with you and my love of vintage crochet and knitting patterns that I hope to upload onto here. I am also quite a big fan of charity shops and will share my little finds with you too. Lots of blogs have inspired me to do one of my own I hope you can come back and have a sneaky peek at 'whats occuring' in my life! Heather xxx
