So much to do so LITTLE time....Thank Heavens for Treasures....!!

Lately in the back of my head I've had this little voice chanting Mad Hatter like, "Late, late, late, late, hurry, hurry....H-U-R-R-Y" over & over to the point of distraction....What with work, organising the Shabby Vintage Junk Extravaganza, working on multiple pieces at once for my own space at the show, moving things in & out of storage....I've really been feeling like there just aren't enough hours in the day....Hence that annoying little voice in the back of my noggin rabbiting on like nobodies business....!!

That being said....It's funny how a trip to the Market & the delight & RELAXTION I find in the simplest of items can put everything back into perspective....For a while at least, the little voice receeded & I was able to put the paper bag away.....hahahahaha....

These paint brushes made me smile BIG TIME.....The patina on each is DIVINE & I'm LOVING these three unusual shaped brushes....!!

Mr SVJ laughed when he called me (he's away this weekend) & I told him I'd bought a whole heap of used paint brushes because I'm always moaning about how much I LOATHE painting....In my defence I paint a LOT, I use enamel paint & I'm so FUSSY it borders on OC....!!

This trolley has some 'issues' but I think I have some wood I can use to fill in the holes....!

SO MUCH work went into this tea cosy....Just couldn't resist it....The toilet roll holder is an OLDIE & came from the garage sale I went to on the way home from the Market....LOVE Sunday garage sales....  :o) !!

Love, love, LOVE vintage card boxes & these two, while a little tattered have been made using the most ADORABLE Christmas & floral cards.....** sigh **

And here's a yummy chippy stool that I got with the loo roll holder at the garage sale....!!

Well I'm 'on the clock' so I must fly....I'll be back this evening to catch up on all my fave blogs....Hopefully, that voice in the back of my head that has been creeping back as I typed will have slowed a little & give me a moment to enjoy some 'quiet' time again & a glass or TWO of wine.....hahahahahaha....!!

I hope wherever you are your weekend has been safe & filled with Shabby Vintage Junk....!!!

Tamarah :o)
