Home decorating and other crafty projects

I recently had a 3-week break from work (office job) over the Christmas / New Year holidays. I looooved it as my hubby and I spent some time at the gorgeous Bryon Bay & Ballina in a luxury resort (more photos later) – but I also had the opportunity to finally finish a few craft projects that had been hanging around for months!

One of these projects is my ‘crazed button’ wall artwork (as the hubby refers to it) which I intended for our bedroom as we had large blank walls. Basically the artwork is pop-art inspired and involved making & mounting hundreds of buttons in crazy bright colors! I love cute fabrics and have quite a collection – so it’s great to finally use them! (see top & bottom left photo)
… Now our bedroom is very cheery, indeed!

Still on the subject of the bedroom decorating, my brother-in-law gave me an awesome Georg Jensen ‘Memory Board’ (key rack) for Christmas. But since I only had one set of keys that I carry in my handbag – I thought the rack is perfect for displaying my treasured necklaces and rings! (see bottom right photo) … Thanks Chris!  🙂
