Mousehole Village crafting~
Reading through my vast amount of Country living magazines, I came across an article about a quaint English village called 'Mousehole village' in West Cornwall. Is that not just too cute! I've decided that should I make anything worth sharing with you, I will post it and call it 'Mousehole village crafts'....Please look out for it. I can just picture the village. Old stone walled homes, smoke seeping slowly out of their chimney's, inviting front English country gardens with a crooked wooden gate, tea always on the ready, craft basket sitting at the comfy chair at the low window ready to be worked on. Of course, no home would be complete without a cute little dog lying in a warm blanket... Boy, can I only dream of Walking though this village. Its a small fishing village and a true treasure of a place. Please join me as I craft this fine day. I am not too patient with writing tutorials so the basics will be covered in picture.
Today, I have decided to share a part of my home which I love. This little spot is in my kitchen right next to a large glass paned door. Being Winter, I needed to bring my garden in doors. This old battered cupboard was a treasure find I payed R200 for.. Just LOVE it! So, these pots looked a little dreary and I have made a plan to cover them. I have some recycled wrapping paper and some cotton lace. I must say all looked easy until I tried to wrap a round pot..so, take it slowly and use allot of tape discreetly. I hope you love the end result. I intend covering them all. Maybe even knit a pot holder too.
