Not enough space!

I have used up all the space in the rack already. I have still lots to put up so I have run out of space now. I will have to make up another rack I have ribbons to hang too. But I have sorted most of them out so putting them up should not be too difficult once the rack is made. 

On another note  I bought these two adorable prints. It is illustrated by a children’s book author. Her name is Jane Heinrichs . Her website is

Project complete

My project is complete after much heart ache. The project itself didn’t give me the heart ache. Yesterday I had planned my day such that I finished all my chores and little jobs to do well ahead of time so that I could finish my project quickly. Before I sat down to finish I  had one last job. I just wanted to feed the fish so I went to feed them. When I looked into the pond I saw some algae and blanket weed. For the warm and sunny weather they had begun to grow so I thought I would treat it. I went and picked  a bottle which said it was for control of algae etc so I used it. After a few minutes I found the fish had begun to gasp for air and come up.  Alarmed I checked the bottle. There was nothing in the front to say not to use but when I looked at the back of the bottle there in very tiny print it said not to use for ponds with fish!  I know it was silly of me not to read the label properly but why on earth there was no warning in the front of the bottle?  I or my hubby would never have bought this liquid.. To cut a long story short I had to spend rest of the day flushing out the pond and filling it up with new water.  By afternoon the fish seemed to be a bit better. When I woke up this morning I was not sure if I would find all my fish dead or alive.  This morning I decided to give a final change of water and I found one dead baby fish. There were nine of them I couldn’t see many in there. Maybe they just went into little crevasses in the pond and died or maybe they are still there hiding.  Whatever it is the big fish are still alive but for how long I don’t know. Only time will tell. They seemed ok this evening.  So this was my disaster and heart ache.  I know i must have killed half the pond life but i hope the pond will recover soon. Ok enough of my natter i am off to bed now.

For a change

For a change I have been doing up a frame for my ribbons that my hubby made for me. At first thought I thought that I would leave it in its natural colour but then I found that the wood was not smooth and had a lot of splinters. Since I cannot sand because the dust affects my sinuses and so does my hubby i decided the next best thing to do is decoupage it. So this is what I have been doing. It is taking ages as I have to do it in stages for it to dry. Specially around the hooks it is fiddly. Then I think I will end up doing the same to the rollers too if I find it is too plain. We shall see.
