A Purple Paisley Pair..

good morning!

thank you for popping in to see me.
i don't know whether i've told you lately
that i really appreciate your visits...
and a big welcome to you
new friends and old!

well, if you popped in to my real house this morning,
you'd find me hibernating a bit today.
the heater's on 'cos it's cold outside..
a kind of dreary looking day.

i've got a throat, slightly scratchy and sore
so i'm nursing it with rest
and the house is comfy and cosy
even though it doesn't look it's best!

i was quite industrious
having got this purple paisley in the mail...

i made a pair of purple paisleys..
and called them 'paisley 'if' and 'y'...




i reckon you'll dig these
if you're a real hippie chick
or just a girl lovin' those sixties and seventies kinda days.

i've matched the backs...

so they look just the same..

one each way...

or maybe with this georgeous fancy pink plate
that my parents gave me for christmas one year.

this purple paisley pair
will look great anywhere!

i'm stocking my little 'madeit' shop
with these two today..
they are 40 cm or 16" square
and being sold as a pair.

{i've had to take action,
as my shelves in there..were getting bare!}

i hope your enjoying a terrific tuesday
whether lying low like me
or as busy as can be...

naturally Carol xox
