Simple Things, Beautiful Charms

I recently got a comment from Cathy Penton, who's inspiring work room you can see above. You must stop over at her home blog 'Simple Things, Small Joys', and have a look. Beauty abounds here.
This is another pic of her beautiful work that cabinet, which actually has a hutch on top, but Cathy took it off 'for a change'.
These are here hand made soldered charms. Most have a French theme, which I love. I could totally see these little beauties become part of my wrapping ensemble of brown paper, linen twine, flower...and a charm. Ness xx
Don't forget to have a look at her shoppe

  1. Hey Ness,
    I am new to your blog & have to say am so glad I found you. I have just come over from Mels blog about the keep calm posters (I am the Lyn who wrote in my blog about the price of these). I just want to thank you for mentioning the ones on Etsy, I am about to go & have a look at them.
    Hope you have a great day

    Lyn xoxoxo

  2. Cathy's creations are divine and she has such an elegant style. I would love to have her come through my new home with Madam 'Lily G' to give me some pointers and between the both of them I would end up with a dream home! A-M xx

  3. I love her blog - if only i could have the same restraint and keep to the creams/whites - i especially love those charms. Seeing as i am on my all about me week i am off there now to check them out! Mel xxx

  4. A-M...I totally agree. I would love miss Lily (Judy) to come through my place with Cathy. It would be something special I am sure....when I win the lotto I will shout us both a home makeover!

    Welcome Lyn. The whole original poster price thing is ridiculous...I am glad to have found the Etsy shop.

    Mel, I have been soooo inspired after looking at Cathys blog. I am thinking the all white makeover will be coming sooner than expected...look out Mic!!

  5. Yes, the wonderful Cathy is one very talented lady. And her kind, gentle soul just completes the package.

  6. Wow, what a gorgeous way to start my Sunday morning. Thank you so very much for doing this gorgeous post for me... I will definitely put a link you your lovely blog...These comments nearly made me cry. Just a quiet country girl doing what she loves. My cottage is so very tiny one day I will have to do a video to show you all because no one believes me (lol)... I have another building that hopefully one day will be my pet project...Anyway off to paint an old wardrobe white and I am thinking about leaving the door the soft blue it is but will have to see....May put some chicken wire as the panels not sure yet... Thank you again.....I have a big smile on my face...Luv Cathy xxxx

  7. Cathy,
    You are more than welcome. About your house, I think you will have to do a video or something..not because I don't believe you, the opposite - I would love to see the rest of your place. You really got me motivated on the Weekend, I got heaps done.
