Ta-Dah Tuesday

Good evening

Just a quick ta-dah post today. Its been a lovely sunny and busy day here for us - firstly a visit over to my Grandma's this morning - boys came too and tasks were found for them to do in exchange for a pocket money boost ;). Home then before visitors arrived - one of my sisters and her two children. We hardly saw the children apart from when we were having lunch. The little cousins love their big cousins and time was spent together - a share love of gadgets bonds them all :) 

I managed a quick snap of this weeks Ta-Dah this morning - the colours aren't great as it was so sunny here today until late afternoon when the mists came in very quickly.


Anyhow my little printers tray I bought from the CS about a month ago - eventually it got put on the wall and I could get painting. I did really well and then 3 sections from the end my little tester pot ran out! Luckily I was able to get another and yesterday I finally finished those 3 sections and gave the whole thing a 2nd coat. 

The colour is more a duck-egg blue than the grey the picture suggests and I love it. Since the picture was taken several more little treasures have joined Brains in there!!

Linking to Lakota's Ta-Dah Tuesdays - here.

Right - its no good - the washing up needs doing and it looks like its my turn again!!

See you soon

Just waiting for someone to complain about me using the statue - but I've seen on t'internet people doing far worse. All I did was ruin my own hat!!!

Ooh, brill find the printer's tray! I've been on the lookout for one for a while and actually saw some at the weekend for £22! Outrageous I thought, so there they'll stay. Yours is a lovely colour too :)

I used to have one of those as a child to house the strange miniature bits and pieces I used to find at jumble sales. Yours looks fab, what a bummer about the paint running out! x
