Lovely gifts & update on the cottage

I love it when the postman brings something nice for a change :) and today I got the most delightful books (which open) and a basket filled with mushrooms. These were from Christine who has a great blog if you haven't seen it and she's also having a give away! Christine kindly did these for my Wee Witchy Cottage and I just want to say 'Thank you'. It never ceases to amaze me how talented you all are - I just don't know how you all do it:) The photos don't do them justice:

On top of this delightful surprise, hubs was off work today and has been busy on the cottage for me :) On Sunday I stained the staircase. I was going to put a spiral staircase in but suddenly had other ideas and wanted the staircase with a wall so hubs did that for me and I thought an understairs cupboard would be good with a light in and he's done the door for me (lights to follow). He has also built my chimney breast for me. I have used a pre-existing fireplace that I really like but needs grubbying up (aarrgghh - not done grubbying up and I'm sure you remember my attempt at shabbying!). We also decided on Sunday to put a false door in upstairs. The doors aren't finished yet.


  1. You're making great progress already with this and certainly making the most of the space available. I'm really looking forward to seeing what you do with this and your little gifts from Christine should fit in there very well.

  2. I am glad they arrived safely and so quickly! Now I must get on with the kit you sent. :D Your witchy house is coming on beautifully. I love your door leading under the stairs.
