Father's Day 2012

I set to work on a little project with the kids last week for Father's day. 

I had planned to do something like this from How About Orange
but there wasn't really enough sticky gluing for my two. 

So we cut out and sticky glued our words and then I just made a rough photo collage in Photoshop, threw in a brightness and contast layer as the weather has been soo dull, and well, we were done. 

 This one is for Phil...
And this one for my Dad! 
Ruby took my photos - not bad for a 4 year old!

And guys, as a foot note, sorry for the extra present of a tummy bug. 
That bit was an accident.

Beautiful treasuries

Designbirdie was in some lovely Etsy treasuries this week. 
I love the member curated treasuries on Etsy, 
but they are so much work for the curators 
and they don't really get that much glory after they are done. 
So, here's a few.

Dip dip who's in

So I just 'dipped' my chair... 
Pinterest is bursting with images of dipped, well, anything really these days...

Ok, not so much 'dipped' as 'painted on badly' 
but the effect (from a distance) is the same. A sitting bum won't notice... 

Phil's only comment was 'Are you going to leave it like that?' :)

These chairs were in Phil's family and now they are ours. 
They are bockity and were varnished big time, 
but he remembers playing at ground level beside them. 
And now, freshened up for this next season our kids are too!

Got to love that.
