the £1 thrift skirt got a little makeover with a linen add-on hem + a vintage lace trim...now i just need some tanned legs to wear it!

i couldn't resist these pretty doilies.

and to round off my old-english town visit i bought two pairs of floral curtains which are wonderfully soft. a little faded along the edges but i'm thinking they may have a new life as cushion covers...patchwork pieces...even another summer skirt? you know i love my curtain-tablecloth skirts!

    yes. a skirt is one the menu there. love it.

  3. Nice customising Kelly:)

    I think the curtains would indeed look good as a skirt especially on your lovely little figure:) What about an apron as well?

  4. Loving your thrifty buys, definitely a skirt in that gorgeous floral, how about a nice big shopper too?

    Hope you're being good to yourself.

    Take care,

  5. Gorgeous finds sweetie,
    I think the floral curtains would make a fabulous skirt.
    Rain, rain, rain here so no tanning, time to get out the fake stuff argh! streaks lol flaming stuff it always does that.
