Another purchase from Velvet Ribbon arrived in the post - an old Marmalade jar which is the perfect size for storing my washing-up brushes.
Ivy was very pleased with the box it came in - perfect kitten size!
In another bid to save space we have installed a Victorian style Pulley Maid. It does make our small utility area much more spacious and the clothes dry very quickly too. Hopefully I'll be able to dry flowers on it later in the year!
Earlier in the year we tied the roses against the wall and they have rewarded our efforts and thorn-pricked fingers with multiple blooms this year.
We have also bought a wardrobe for our second bedroom - we currently have a linen covered one in there just now so this will hopefully replace it.
I say hopefully because we haven't managed to get it up our small cottage staircase yet. We have got the base, cornice and single doored section up there but the double wardrobe remains in the sitting room. But we've got a few more tricks up our sleeves before we accept defeat - fingers crossed we'll get it up there eventually!
Thank you for all your lovely comments - I think all the kitten appreciation definitely went to Holly's head! Wishing you all a jolly June!
