A candle, a tray and lots of shabby chic!

Good afternoon friends, I trust all is well
with you today ? I am feeling much better
too btw. thank you for all the good wishes ;)
I have been busy doing lots of decoupage
 lately, thought you may want a look.
Not on a card but on wood! I seem to be
in a shabby chic mood lately too.

Anyway come and have a look.... I asked 
my lovely uber talented OH to make me a
 fat candle holder out of wood. He said he 
would make me a candle in wood too ;) heavy!!!

I decided to do some decoupage on them
 as you can see. Can you see a tray and a 
placemat/large coaster too...yep he made
those too!

What got me started were the cream table
and chairs we bought from our neighbour.
Then I needed chair cushions and a table
 cloth! I went with blue and spotty...yes
I know 'what no pink' you ask!!!

So I bought these ...all matching and
all from different sellers too...result!

Then I got these cushions to match for our sofa,
 I added the roses ones later after I did all the roses

Our sofa is blue hence the blue spottiness theme! 
My lovely OH kindly made me this tray and I
tried my first bit of decoupage....hmm don't look
too closely ;) Then I spied some tablemats/coasters
he had made and decided to...ahem... pinch them. I
 decoupaged those too!

Oops... I left my camera lens on the table!!!! 

Here is a closeup of the tray...not great...but a first attempt
....make allowances please ;)

Here are all the mats finished!......they had large letters 
on at first. My OH thought our grandchildren may like 
to play with them and learn their alphabet at the same
 time. Alas it was a lot of hard work so he gave up after
the first few letters. Anyway now they are reborn as
table mats...or large  coasters ;)

Here they are all together! These are in our large back
sunlounge btw. hence my OH making me a wooden
 candle instead of  me using a real one......the real
ones melt as it gets so hot in there in the Summer.

Right that is all for now, we got rid of our brown
 leather sofa and chair today to  a charity. We
are expecting our new  corner sofa tomorrow long last....9 weeks wait! So exciting!!
We are sitting on an old chair and my computer
 chair tonight in our lounge. Hope our new stuff
arrives tomorrow!!!!!

ps. A big welcome to my latest follower Miranda
 too. Welcome aboard and thanks for choosing me
 to follow :)

Another card soon.......and it's a shabby chic one
...and NOT CAS...shock horror !!!!

Oh my....I am in love with all your incredible projects, so amazing and what a wonderful talent you have.

Great idea to make a wooden candle! Is something for our livingroom on the southside! Think you made this all look so beautiful! The roses remember me of the roses-library my mother has created and I really love blue and polka dots! So I think this is going to be a great spot to spend a lot of time! Enjoy the rest of your week!

Wow!! I'm loving your fabulous decoupage Viv.... but also your clever husband's work!! And I did smile - as I have the same dotty cloth and cushions - but mine are in a mocha type colour... as they don't make it in pink I don't think! LOL! Now...... are you taking orders for those coasters??? I think I need!!

Big hugs
