I have painted half of the lounge, ripped down the curtains so I can wash them, hoovered, had the computer out to clean that mess under there, realised I still can't get the washing outside for fear of rain (and the unwashed pile is nearing the height of my rather ample waist and that's without curtains), baked brownies, currently baking cupcakes, and at some point will sit down to make up some more keyrings. So I guess that's relaxing... if your first name is Martha and you happen to be part of the Stuart family.
But it has meant I could join in with Handmade Monday and it has allowed me my much loved hobby of blog hopping. Thanks to Wendy for keeping the Monday Making going!
I went out some time back to a market and saw someone selling wine glass charms. They were so delicate and fancy looking, and beautifully made. It inspired me last Wednesday morning. Now normally that kinda thing doesn't do much for me, however I did think that since with me more is more and less is less, I figured I would decorate my own glasses for the wedding...just because I can. So whilst I have only done six, and whilst they are not to everyone's taste, I will admit that my currently watching Pirates of the Caribbean may have influenced the style slightly...
Kinda keeps with the goth theme though. Rest assured, the next ones will be pretty and pleasant, but how could I not pay homage to such a kick ass set of films? The first 3 that is!
So after that I figured that I would need tie backs for the door ways. Come the big day, to hide the plain white wood work I will be draping everything in material, from velvet to organza, going over every spare surface. However I don't think it would be practical to have my guests moving material every time they want to enter a room, so tie backs it was!
Yes... I made another wreath...
And then of course... there's the brownies...Out of the oven an hour ago. Not sure they'll last until the end of the day!
On that note I must check my cupcakes. Where I can then make a cup of tea, grab a brownie and blog hop!!
