This is a before pic of a gorgeous french couch I had and Shirley ( a Barn Girl ) bought it and has had it recovered and also painted and shabbied  the wood. It is amazing and sorry but I forgot to take the camera with me today when we took up some food for their meal tonight as they were moving into their new property today and it will save them thinking of what,s for dinner.She has painted it all white and when you see the photos you will see how she has painted all the furniture white etc., NZ,s Rachel Ashwell!!!!!!!.
Will have those photos up soon.

WOW, what a time I have had getting this new system to blog as the old way was sooooo easy.After my promise to be a regular blogger I have failed you badly but fingers crossed I have it sorted.
These few blooms are to be enjoyed as Jack Frost isn,t too far away and all the plants will be put to bed for the winter.
I have been making time to sew and stock up The Barn and these cushion covers are my Ballerina collection, perfect for your dancers room.

This cushion is made of unused vintage ticking and has a gorgeous swan tapestry appliqued on it.

And these are some woolen blankets thet I have joused up and great for those colder nights ahead.
