A piece of Birthday cake and project update

This Saturday was my birthday so I thought to send you all a piece of virtual Birthday cake and a big " thank you "  to all you lovely blog-friends out there for your support , lovely comments and for keeping on following my blog- especially as I have not been posting much over the last two weeks- so sorry- o deary me-hahaha!!

I have a a whole load of projects on the go , and I am busy creating a small collection of home-ware stuff ! So I am very excited right now- and a teeny bit frustrated things are not going as quickly as I want it to go.
Plus I am doing some furniture make-overs - but  all I can show right now is some tempting shots to keep you in suspense. So here are just-a few details of what I am working on, amongst other things .. 
this- my " romantic range"
                                                                             
With these materials....
                                                   And then this - another sneak pre-view..                             

    Which goes with  this (which is part of a more comtemporary range)  :

 Then there is still this waiting.....already in a base coat..
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      
 Meanwhile there is mayhem in the animal world here..all fighting for a place on the spare bed while major projects are under way..
" My spot" " "No-mine-Get off"  !!"...
    Score : cats : 1- Dogs : 0..
In the meantime-  roses are still going  strong this month-  if you think of planting some nice climbers this autumn to brighten up a really boring shed or a whole row of completely yawn-inducing conifers, can I suggest this fantastic monster of a climbing rose ( also described by others as " A huge and very vigorous climbing and scrambling rose", the " Kiftsgate". I  grew this monster about three years ago in a group of huge conifers which were drab and plain, and it's such fun to sit and watch per day almost and see this rose climbing up in it, and covering the trees with swathes of white tiny pretty flowers.. 
             
                                              
Here's a detail by the way-.
  And I leave you for now with my favourite rose at the moment, called " Peace"- which is flowering in my garden at the moment.
  Have a great week!

Well, I can't wait to see your finished projects. I know what you mean about not posting as much when you've got projects to work on. Your roses are gorgeous. Thanks for telling me about that climber.

Dearest Bea,

Happy belated Birthday!!! Lezen anderen dat níet?!... Maar ja ik krijg ook van die oenige kommentaren zodat ik wéét dat men de tekst niet eens gelezen heeft.
Your Peace rose is so lovely, you open this post with it and end with Peace. And that climbing monster is unbelievably pretty. If that also exists here on this side of the Ocean?

Lots of love and success with your pillows; they look very nice.

Good luck with all of the projects. Love the touch of lace on what looks like the corner of a pillow. Thanks for being a part of Seasonal Sundays.

I love the colors you have chosen for your project. They remind me of Baskin Robbins Rainbow Sherbet!
