Hi everyone I hope you are all well.
I have been very spoilt this week. My good friend Maria made me this lamp for my hallway table it is gorgeous. She is very talented and I love all her work I have a few of her lamps around the house. You can find her lamps on ebay click here.

Not much else has been going on trying to finish a few orders and catching up with the housework.
My daughter has been working on her quilt which I blogged about here. It's looking really good. I'll post photos as soon as it's done.

Have a great week.
