After~ TA DA!!!
It was given to me by a lovely lady, purely because I wouldn't stop asking her if I could buy it from her!! She came up to me the other day, just after I had decided to stop hassling her, and told me if I could get it out I could have it!!! Exciting!!
I think it looks fab after it's make~over... it's in our hallway waiting for my new workroom to become free.
In case you want to know the paint is Homebase Sanctuary soft feather in matt. It took just one of their tester pots at £1.79...a bargain all round!
Talking of workrooms, I packed up the nest yesterday...I was a little sad about it...but after having a lie in and painting my chest today...I'm happy again!
Happy Weekend my lovelies xxx

As I have told you I have been seeing some changes lately.
Life is moving on, sometimes quicker than I thought possible.
My darling sister is moving out. She is able, in the current market, to buy herself a lovely little flat by the sea...I am slightly green around the edges, but more happy for her than green!
This means that I have a lovely, light and bright room which has Vintage Magpie written all over it. This is where the change comes in. Due to this The Nest in Lewes is having to be packed up and yet again moved back into my flat, which if you remember I, only 6 months ago, moved out of said flat!! Who says life should be easy....or as my Ma says ....it would be boring if it was easy!
So my days of making pretty window displays are again put on hold!
But to be honest, I'm looking forward it immensely. Plus me and The Wonderful Dutchman get a huge big bedroom...Oh the joy...a bed we can walk around!! Bliss.
So as my personal life is having a move about, Vintage Magpie is following closely behind. Which in true Emma Style...got me thinking....
...I need some advice....from you my blogger friends...I hope you can help me out.
I want to test the waters with an idea I have...
... What would you think if I offered a 'DIY bride silk bouquet' 1 to 2 day course...would anyone be interested?
I feel I would love to help those brides out who maybe want to make their own bouquet have all the vintage goodies, but are unsure on how to do it.
This is not a course designed for people who, like others, are trying to...COPY! But one to help and guide a bride through a totally satisfying process, one which will see her making a unique item for her day.
I really want to share my knowledge and skills with others, and to be able to give a Bride a smile on her face knowing she has made her own, beautiful, and personal bouquet. Something she can be proud of...and that has an even more wonderful story to it.
I really would love to know what you think of this idea. I would love for everyone to comment on this post...you don't have to have a blog...you can do it anonymously, with just an email address...so nothing should be stopping you!!
I really appreciate your words, and input. Thank you so much for your help. xxx

This bouquet, has a bundle of family pieces in it, a spoonful of crystal, a measure of pearls and heap of silk....do you like the recipe?
It is simple yet so stunning...it has a gorgeous dress to contend with...but I think they will both shine....but the brightest star will be the bride, as it always should be.

Do you ever get the feeling that ideas, and inspiration comes in waves? Sometimes I find my brain runs away with me... and then I get excited and want to tell you lovely bloggers everything...but then the reality hits... maybe I need to work this out before I go promising something I cannot deliver.
