Table and hedgehogs

Gosh, I blinked and here we are already into June. Don't know what the weather is where you are but up here in our little corner of Scotland it has been pretty abysmal. Good to have something to do inside while waiting for the sun to come out!

This little table was found by my DH on the local tip. Was in good condition but rather boring. So out came the paintbrushes to give it a makeover.

And here it is transformed. It has some raised flowers on the top and the bottom shelf and so they were painted a pale shade of lilac and pale green stems/leaves.  Then I glued a matching square piece of wallpaper to the top to cover the square of  slightly disfigured wood. I think it looks really smart now and makes a nice plant pot table. Total cost £ kind of money! haha

Peek-a-boo here is a little hedgehog coming to say hello. He was needle felted by one of my daughters. Isn't he just the cutest?

Saying hello to one of the hares and passing the time of day together. Slugs and give me a cup of tea and a cake anytime! haha

Archie is not too sure about this little doggie!! He prefers real dogs to play with and not stuffed ones. Archies not been fooled at all by this interloper who has now gone off to a good home.

Take a look at this weeks linky parties.
