The Thursday Three- the clocks are ticking (again)

???????????????????????????????The clocks are ticking………………..again

is this it? I don’t know, but I will, literally, keep you all posted.

Left & Right- Little ceramic clock. Very reproduction, but screamingly suitable for my take on French Country style. (note, those letter could also spell out the current status of our project ( F***** Chaos)

Please don’t be offended, if I knew a worse swear word  I would probably be rolling that around my tongue right now.???????????????????????????????

It’s a sign of how chaotic my house is when there is more dust on my dining table than there is on my daughter’s.

She has almost as severe an allergy to housework as Trev has to gardening, which is really saying something. ???????????????????????????????Left- Very large French tapestry, and –Right-??????????????????????????????? three metres of cotton lawn with lace inset and edging.






This was designed to use as a mantlepiece trim- see below-. The French use them along their fireplaces or cooker hoods to deflect the smoke up the chimney.(?!?)20-11-2014 11;33;52

I don’t think I will be utilising this one in the traditional manner. I like a little adventure now and then, but would prefer not to burn the French village hovel to the ground just yet.
