BUT THEN..........................came back from the Doctor's to find mail from Susan at Minicrochetmad - a thank you card, the most delightful memento box and mini mail! I couldn't believe it . It really cheered me up no end. The colour of the box goes beautifully with my bedding (spooky or what?). I can't believe it and I just keep looking at it all. Susan got the tutorial for the box from here. I don't know what to say apart from a huge THANK YOU!
I tried to photograph the memento box and mail on the card Susan sent me. The bed frame is one of my first attempts at shabbying (can't say chic at this stage!) but wanted to show you what I mean about the box matching the bedding. The bedding was bought a few years ago and I have been trying to find out if the person still makes bedding. I think she went by the name of Dawn and Daisy Chain Interiors - if anyone knows would be grateful.
