For many years I have had my sofa, large, heavy and loved much too much.
It's creamy colour faded and tired. It traveled with me from Ireland, to Holland, to England and now it 'lives' in France. And I simply could not get myself to get rid of it. It's sits five children and a grown up easily. So we spent two days dyeing it a deep red, and making new cushions.
It is now the happy bright area in the house! Bursting with colour.
[In my perfect world, my sofa would be light and creamy white, it would survive little children's hands for about 24 hours :) ]
Because I just love it, no matter how old and worn out it is.
... and after all that work, it is time for a cappuccino. Or perhaps even two!
- I have closed my shop, by the way. I am working on totally new 'things' and sadly I am not able to do both + be a mum to five during the Summer Holidays. I feel badly, but I re-counted my hands, and there is still only two of them. No matter how much I have wished to have at least another two sets ....
