Upcycling Small Bath Towels 9

We have lots of bath towels but as my eldest son, D is the size of a small adult these days there is never a big towel in the airing cupboard. And several smaller child sized towels that never get used. I’m going to make my towels bigger, oh yes I AM. I have done this in the past but back then I had a sewing machine. This could take some time. These towels are very eco, they are wombled. They were left near the washing up sinks at a campsite we were on, and staff were about to bin them. So they went in our wet laundry bag until we returned home. I hate waste, and I love reusing, reducing and recycling. They of course got a jolly hot wash, and tumble at home.

Upcycling Make Up 2

Today I’ve been sorting old hand bags out. I had *cough* 6 fully loaded but abandoned hand bags. Some haven’t been touched for a year, I know this because they had “work” paperwork in. Most of them had complete make up in, foundation, pressed powder, lipsticks and glosses, eye shadow and more. Sadly some of this was out of date and some was dried up. Amongst all the old make up I had a few nice compacts. My favourite was a big Boots No.7 Christmas gift set. I loved this, until the eye shadow smashed in my bag about a year and a half ago. I threw it in the cupboard black hole and forgot all about it.

Beautiful Birthday Cakes by Baker Days

Well it’s birthday season in mine and my partners families. Most of the birthdays fall between April and July! So not a bad time to discover Baker Days really. They send cute personalised cakes through the post, and it was just the right size to fit through the letter box. I was actually having a lie in when the corrugated cardboard box hit my hallway floor with a thump, but the content was unharmed. 10 out of 10 there, you can buy a cake as a surprise and not have to ask the recipient to stay in and look out for the postie. I choose chocolate cake as you might expect I would, with a lovely pattern and some butterflies and roses. Pretty In the box was a lovely little pastel yellow cake tin and the cake fitted just perfectly in this, which I am so reusing, a little flyer and a mini […]

Why I Would Love a New Bathroom

Over on Tots100 they are hosting a blogging competition with Bathshop321 with the chance to win a new bathroom. Count me in! I’ve had a look over on the website and this is the suite I like… Picture from Bathshop321 We haven’t had much luck with bathrooms, remember the disaster of a bathroom I blogged photos of recently? We had a decent quality bathroom and paid for quality fixtures, and for it to be installed by their men, approximately £5000 and it wasn’t even done right! A fresh start would be awesome, rip out anything that reminds me of the local cowboys. We could keep the wall covering and the ceiling light, and my little mirrored bathroom cabinet, but everything else could go. Ok, maybe I would keep the shower as it is already installed in to the wall, but everything else needs to go! I would like everything removed, […]
