Talk to the wall

 I went to see Shirley Valentine last week at the Lowry, Manchester.
It must have left an impression on me as I've been talking to the wall
and I don't mean my wandering welder of an husband

I mean this wall.  I've taken everything off one section and then
hammered up this seed tray that I picked up at a country fair recently.

There was no plan in mind for the display, I just went with the flow.

This is a button hoop I made a couple of years ago.

I've added little bits of embroidery to the vintage flower cards.
These were done for a little project last month.

I had a real good faffing session yesterday when it was raining to 
much to go outside.  Hope you like it.
Don't slam the door on your way out though, don't want things falling off
the wall.

Time for a cuppa now and a look what you've all been working
on this week.

Bye for now from me and the wall


  1. Love it, what a lovely way to pull together an eclectic grouping.

  2. What a great display!! Helen #1

  3. Oh Lynn, I love it. I think you were a designer in a previous life as you do such beautiful displays. And I adore that button ring, what a lovely idea. The whole display area is fabulous and I am envious of your ability to do such things - it must be fun visiting your house.
    Hugs, Neet 10 xx
    ps thanks for the visit to my blog - yes a slip cover would be good but now I have to think of how to do it - no doubt I can do so, just need to get the house back to normal first.

    1. You are welcome to come and visit anytime. I'll have the kettle on.

  7. Ah Lynn, if only my faffing came together like this. Your skill is a photographer's dream! I could no more look at the seed tray and thing 'frame' than I could qualify as an astronaut!

  8. You have the designer eye ..... it has come together beautifully.

  9. Happy WOYWW. I envy your talent to put together such a wonderful wall display. I definitely haven't got the talent or the energy! Do you have an Instagram account? If not, then get one - as those sort of images are very popular on there. Ali x #25

  10. You are so clever, Lynn. I love how you transformed that seed tray, and I particularly love the button hoop. You certainly deserved that cuppa! xxx

  11. OMGness! I absolutely love it!!! What a brilliant up-cycling idea :)
    Have a wonderful Wednes-YAY!
