Fun with Tags

Hey Everyone,
 I had a little  spare time today so I decided to have a play with some tags from the Dear Lizzy 'Polka Dot Party' collection.

I add a few bits and pieces.......buttons, lace, twine , flowers etc.

I'm writing this post from my iPad, it looks like my computer cannot be fixed and I need to buy a new one......ahhh!
The sun is shining it's a beautiful day, perfect weather for painting more furniture.
Here's some photos of what I've been doing. All the furniture was plain wood before I started. 

This was a huge job!

Originally The little white cabinet had hens in the panels , I replaced it with pretty patterned paper. I plan on putting inspirational quotes on the Black board. I painted the stool yesterday..... And my favourite thing of all is the milk cans. I have two of them, they were all rusty , out the back in the shed. Don't they look great Powder coated a pearl white!

Love this little stool below.

Mmmmm.... What will I paint today?
So, as you can see...not a lot of time to scrap!

Happy Monday to you all and Thankyou for stopping by.

I love the little details like the heart buttons and the flower in the camera lens. The furniture you've been working on is amazing. I need to try my hand at projects of that nature :)
