This weekend we went off to a lovely country hotel for the night, we had cream teas & lots more teas & a little swim, float around in the jacuzzi & got frizzed up in the steam room (my hair, that is) had some really good food too. If you're looking for somewhere a bit different to stay Hand Picked Hotels are really good, usually can get dinner & brekkie & maybe some canapes thrown in too :)
Teapot & tea in a compartment in the wardrobe, now that's my idea of a wardrobe. They never give you enough milk though. Why IS that.
Massive room, so nice to walk around while you're getting ready, rather that having to dodge the wall/chest of drawers/wardrobe/cat/dog/both.
Really nice thick curtains.
This is what the rest of the hotel looked like too, a bit like a castle... this is the health spa, actually bigger than it looks!

I'm trying to work out which ones I like the best... think it may be the little birdy one... just!
You can see the curtains I made from ikea fabric a while ago too in these pics. The fabric is really thick, almost canvas & is 1 1/2 metres wide, so makes excellent curtain material. They're not lined or anything... they let the light in a little in the morning, but they're in the lounge, so it's no biggie.
I'll be there, yep, definately.

In my metalwork course, we've also done a bit on glass, plastics & porcelain too. Here are some buttons, now I like them just plain porcelain, but also with a slight touch of colour, I added a bit of colour this afternoon & like the yellow best, so spring like.
