Weekend makings and a winner!

This weekend has been one of those ones where everything gets done.
The type that you are satisfied with.
I cleaned, cooked, washed the car, attempted to sort my office, Mic mowed the lawn and we had a nice time with the boys.
I even whipped up this new cushion.
Not having done anything in white and back for some time now I thought I would try it out
...and I do like this.

The great thing is that it goes with every cushion in my range.
So this will become a staple at Marley & Lockyer.
What do you think?

As I mentioned before, I attempted to sort my office.
Didn't get very far - sidetracked really.
I found some unused canvases which I had painted Tractors and the like for the boys rooms
when they were born.
They needed to be used.
I turned them into little collages for my office wall.
Just out of things I had around the room.
A penny farthing from one of my Necklaces and some vintage buttons.
A piece of fabric tape measure, one of my stoneware Birds and some vintage lace.
Some old book pages, more vintage buttons and then some doodles with a black pen.
Oh and some warm white paint to cover the Tractors and sailboats!!

A new addition to my office picture wall, which is coming along nicely.
There is another one which is being finished and I think they will look great together on the wall.
As you can see I enjoyed my weekend.
I hope you did too.

I do have to let you know who won the Ramsign Enamel Sign Giveaway before I head off.
