“Wherever you go, go with all your heart.” Confucius

Easter has been a bit overcast in this region (click to enlarge if you like) you are sure to see all kinds of amazing skies from all over with Sky Watch Friday.

One of my altered books as seen in the Idiots Guide to Altered Art.

Afternoon ‘tea’ with the girls will have to be indoors due to weather conditions. What could be nicer than celebrating light with friends in all shades of shabby white.

Through the blogs of Melissa at the Inspired Room, Sarah at the Beach Cottage, Susan with her Tablescape Thursdays and all their friends, I have learnt so much about the little details that can make your space special and appreciating what you already have.

Since they have gotten a hold of me all kinds of odd repurposing has started to happen, cake stands have become candle holders and shells have come out of treasure boxes to shine again.

Sharing a couple of before and after photos from the tea party decorating. Part way through building the tablescape decided it needed that little bit more at the place settings and grabbed some scrapbook paper for place mats.

Considering you can find pretty 12×12 inch paper on sale for as little as 50 cents it is a great option for themes and colour schemes.

First found scrapbooking paper when searching for ephemera for my altered projects and pleasantly surprised with it being such an affordable option for all kinds of craft projects. Recently I styled up a discount CD shelf unit with scrapbook paper and really pleased with results, will save that post for another day.

So thank you Melissa, Sarah, Susan and all the fun bloggers who play these games, and mum – my own personal scout always on the search for the quirky little things that make all the difference.
