oooh! I really am quite clever!

I went to painting last night. Have I mentioned before that I quite like painting? It was a 'bring your snail to paint' session (best method I've found for making them scarce in my garden yet) however I had painted mine on the weekend to give to the 'Venerable Joe Hashman'. So, what to take? Hmmmm, think, think, think.

Then the brainwave struck.

There was an eight drawered stack sitting in my little 'green' house looking for something to cover its nakedness.

So I did.

But I felt it needed more. Surely a whole stack of drawers painted in DecoArt Cool Neutral was a tad underdressed. I mean, there was not a dot, sparkle or very colourful area to be seen. This probably wouldn't fit in terribly well with anything else that lives in my house (how do you think she got the name 'Princess CurlyWurly')?

Inspiration struck!

Happy me!


  1. Hi Trashalou, love your cupcake drawer! Thanks for your etsy email - I can certainly make you a different sized wallet (difficult woman! only joking!!!) if you let me know the approximate size etc. and how you want it inside. Do you have an email address I can contact you on? Lucy x
    P.S. I'm going to have to read more as I am intrigued by princess curlywurly and the other cast members! I was laughing at your latest comment on MM!

  2. That's simply smashing :)

    Do you happen to have any cupcakes handy that you can keep in it?

  3. Mmmmm, cake... and strawberries on your tablecloth, too: yum yum!

    I don't know how to get a flickr widget on a blog, but the strikethrough thingy is easy enough. Just put a "del" tag at the beginning of the text to be crossed out, and then close it again with "/del" at the end. And bingo: Robert's your mother's brother. Give it a try!

  4. Saw your comment on VC's blog ..... if you click on the "what's this?" bit of my (or anyone's) flickr thingy it'll tell you what to do to get one on your blog. That's how I got mine.

    Also, I needed A LOT of hand holding from trek with the del tag. So here's an example which may help you :-

    Say you want to type "Monkee Maker is hilarious" (just roll with it), but then change your mind and want to say "rubbish" you do this .....

    Monkee Maker is (del)hilarious(/del) rubbish

    but instead of using rounded brackets () you use the pointy ones <>

    Hope this helps and hasn't actually confused you more!!
