Seaside Make

I wanted to pop in today to share this little re-vamp.  A friend at work kindly gave this to me, it's a mobile phone holder for my desk. 
I love it, I love anything seaside related and a mini deckchair just about made my day.

I whisked it home and gave it a little makeover with a new fabric seat and a little bow and button embellishment.

It looks right pretty on my crafty shelves in my hobbit hole and now I have a place to stash my phone.  I am a big fan of audiobooks and I can while away many hours sewing, engrossed in my stories.

My phone usually lives in my bra, I shove it in there all the time as most of my clothes are without pockets and I like to keep it close to hand.  Now when I am in my cupboard my phone gets it's own special place not suffocated by my bosom!

Keeping with the seaside theme, I bought myself a little treat this week 'Wish You Were Here' handbag, all sea sidey and summery!  

We just need some sun now, COME ON SUN!

Back soon x

Oh you *have* treated yourself with your new bag! I hope you get some nice sea-sidey weather to go with it :)

Isn't it great that we have the skills to 'pimp' things up that just need a new, pretty piece of fabric? Love your little deck chair, so cute!

I loved that CK bag when I saw it in the catalogue.

Very sweet little deckchair- clever!
And you can't beat a summery CK bag, can you?!
Enjoy your week.

Hi Kandi - thanks so much for your lovely comment. I mentioned it to Husband who pointed out that I'd like your crafty cupboard, and you'd like my garden "See - it just goes to show that you can't have it all"! He does, occasionally have something sensible to say....X

I love what you have done with the deck chair, beautiful fabric. And do I spy a crochet coaster under there too?
