In other notes, I'm so excited to doing Afternoon Tea Swap over at Pretty Little Jewel furthermore, I'm partnered with her! so so excited! off blog hopping now...

Have a lovely Sunday!


  1. I love nthe sewing box you bought! I would totally paint it but thats because i cant leave anything alone! Eugh to ironing and eugh to all house work ;o) Hope you have a fabulous Sunday Scarlett x

  2. I like the sewing box as it is but then i guess it depends on how it suits a room.I don't think anyone actually enjoys ironing...i see how much i can get away with not ironing stuff :) Have a nice day xx

  3. Your sewing box is amazing, Susan!! I love it just how it is but at the same time I think it'd look beautiful painted duck egg blue or french grey with little patches of decoupage.

  4. Oh, your little pin is so cute and an constant reminder to be happy. Your sewing box is beautiful!!! I'd leave it as is, for now. It can be a nice focal point. I'd just keep it polished nicely with pledge or something similar.

    I know it sounds strange, but I've always loved ironing. I never really minded doing my own housework, and I'm looking forward to the day when I can resume that lifestyle along with having the time and energy to create, create, create.

    Enjoy a wonderful day, dear, Susan.

  5. Yay! Can't wait to swap Susan! I definately think you should paint that gorgeous sewing box! What a fantastic find! xxx

  6. Lovely sewing box, I have a couple pretty similar and I've been umming and aahing about whether to alter them or leave them wood coloured too. Yours looks in really good condition so I'd be tempted to leave it - great price too

  7. i hate ironing too!! that why i hardly do it!! i just do my husbands work shirts, but nothing else!! i just try and fold it neatly or hang it up to avig creases.

    Fab sewing box and bargain price. x

  8. Hi Susan,

    I like your sewing box, what a great (and handy) find. I quite like it as it is, but I also think it would look just as nice painted..I guess it depends on how it looks/suits the room it is in.

    That strawberry milkshake looks good. I just bought a pack of strawberry milkshake mix this weekend, I am going to have to give it a go :)

    I hate doing the ironing as well, it is right on the top of my 'hate to do' much so I try to buy things that don't wrinkle..just to avoid doing it :P haha.

    I hope you are having a good week :)

  9. I hate ironing clothes too, I really do dislike that chore! Love that little telephone pin, it's very cute indeed xxx

  10. Your photos are great today! Your little pin is so cute and LOVE the sewing box. I think it looks great the way it is. Great price, too! The rose in your clock looks so sweet. You did a good job with that! YES, YUMMY STRAWBERRY SHAKE, but not thanks. I'm trying to shed my middle... :(
    You should try some protein shakes. Whey protein is best and you can get different flavors!
    I use to have to iron for my mother when I was growing up. I remember my dad had this job where he needed white shirts. She would dampen them, roll them in a ball and place them in the refrigerator. She would let them get cold, then take them out and start ironing them using lots of starch. She made them look so beautiful. Then I had to iron his handkerchiefs, the bed linens, and my brothers shirts. Come to think of it, my mother made ironing an ART. She was really good at it. THANK GOODNESS I don't have to do that today!! LOL! Wow, Susan. You brought about a great memory!!
    Have an awesome day,

  11. Hey Susan!
