Granny Chic, rather that Shabby Chic!


Well Saturday is always the day for me to visit the local Charity Shops, which are rather good from time to time here in Keynsham.  I only purchased one thing yesterday, some rather battered funny little shelves, that could have probably done with a rub down and lick of paint, but due to my impatient personality I decided to stick bits of cut out vintage photocopies of wallpaper round the top and on the back for my desk.

I do worry sometimes that I'm a bit of a 'Rag and Bone' lady collecting bits of tat and rubbish...(I found a bag of stamps that I framed too)...

But you can find some nice CK bits about my house too...Can't wait to see the new Spring Goodies, ( I am going to try to be good...)

Happy Sunday Bloggers

I love being a bit of a scavenger, too - very satisfying! And your shelves look lovely.

I can never wait to rub things down and paint them, I'm forever sticking paper or fabric on things.
I can't wait for the new things in Cath Kidston I'm also going to try to be good, I'll probably fail miserably but I'll try.
Have a good week
Kate.

Hi Sam,
The drawers are cute, good idea with the pretty papers. I've photocopied vintage fabric before and it worked really well. Don't try to be good - it's so much more fun being bad!

I love how you "spruced" up the little shelf. I'm sort of an old soul myself. Drawn to granny goodies.

Omg I have worried about the "too granny" thing myself sometimes.

But as long as you have some modern bits around too, I think it is just fine.

Although I have been warned by family members to take it easy with all the crochet cushions and blankets ;)
