WALLS REQUIRE ART

We have been living in our house for over 10 years now. That means some walls needed some fresh paint. I started with the toilet (I don´t think you want to see pictures of that!) and then I painted the entrance with a light linen colour.
The wall on one side looked naked and we needed a shelf anyway to put keys, letters,...or so I told my DH. He built a shelf which I painted with about 10 coats of satin white and then made a collage to put above:
It is made out of old and new magazine pages, pictures I found in discarded school books... I printed the cutlery on a tea bag! I added some scrap booking papers ( yes dear sister, I have some of them too!) and I called it done.
Even if I see things which I could have done differently, I like the colour scheme and the over all feeling. Can you guess? It won´t be my last collage.


I started yet another baby quilt (this time for a girl as you can guess) for someone in my family in France. I will add appliqué flowers on the white borders and see how it turns out.

This time last year I was complaining about the snow, well this year winter is taking its time. I won´t complain now, just that it could be colder to get rid of all the bugs still around!

Have a nice advent!
