Middle of the January I promised some flowers in the middle of the winter. It took bit longer to realise the frames, because the electrical stapler that I bought didn't work so I had to return back to the shop and get a new one. I bought some artist canvas frames and with my fabrics I covered them. Easy to do, just make sure that your fabric is well ironed before you attach it to the frame.

In Andorra, we have just this small space for the washing machine and tumble drier... And a narrow space, 40cm wide to make some storage to all the house cleaning products etc... Not very handy with this shelve...
So when I took a trip from here to Barcelona to the kindom of storage, Ikea. I bought this shelve, nothing fancy but much more storage space and I also bought very handy plastic containers that keeps everything in the right place. The problem with this narrow and hight space is that part of the shelve had to be mounted inside of this small area. But now I have some more storage space for my tools... Simply, easy and handy...
To fix the wall after adding that pipe, I used a tip from a TV program in France "Coté Maison". The plaster wont stay if the space is too big, so in the program they were using wet newspaper to stuff the wall, that what I did around the pipe and this also help to keep to pipe in the right place, ones the newspaper was dry...

Look at this kitchen cupboard, huge space inside but narrow door and so stupidly planned, ok I didn't do that. So we really never use this space, I used to store things in that I didn't need. So I really needed to something to turn in a nice space of storage, which would look good too...
So this is the result after taking off the doors and adjusting the shelves in the right hight. And what was the nices now I can expose my ceramic that I made in South Africa.

We got 4 cushions with our coach when we bought it a year ago. The covers are dark brown velvet fabric and they didn't fit to the black, white and red lounge so I use to keep them on our guest bed. They just looked too plain. So with a help a glass, plastic cover and some metallic paint I changed them in 30 minutes. This is so easy to apply just get some paint for fabric or my paint was just a decoration paint for any type of painting. Pore some paint on a piece of cardboard and press your glass or what ever you want to use in the paint and then apply it on you fabric. For some fabric you might to need apply the paint several times to get the wanted effect.You can use any type of item that can print a pattern on your cushion covers. If you are not sure about the result try it first on some peace of fabric. Use your imagination and have fun!!!

So from now on I will have plenty time of my own and I will do some nice things for this blog...
This is a statue I past today on my way to the shops. It was -5 degrees Celsius in down town Andorra la Vella so the water has frozen on the second part of the statue... It is a different every year, depending of the weather conditions.
