Cushions, cushions everywhere …

29/04/2012 § 18 Comments

It’s been a good weekend for finishing some cheerful cushions I made earlier in the week …

Here’s a merry-go-round of retro prints, complete with vintage buttons & bobbles!

Oh, I do like to be beside the seaside …

Last year, we spent a long weekend by the seaside in Cornwall.  As we sat outside our beachside cottage, enjoying the morning sunshine and breakfast overlooking the sea a little day-old duckling found it’s way to our back doorstep!  More about that in a minute …

Today I ventured out with the collies, clad from head to toe in waterproofs with woolly jumpers underneath! I bet there were phenomenal waves on the beach in Porthleven today!

A while ago I couldn’t resist some 1950’s nursery panels.  The children all look so happy, enjoying games and having lots of fun – so I (hopefully) continued the theme, with some cheery retro patchwork and scarlet bobbles  …

Next weekend it’s the monthly Vintage and Retro Fair in Winchester, so I’ll be taking these along for my stall!

Now, back to ducky … I can hardly believe that Flora is celebrating her first birthday!

what a difference from a year ago …

My darling ducky! She’s an amazing pet and roams our garden, hiding eggs in secret nests, joining the collies at dinner time and tapping on the back door when she thinks it’s her bedtime.  Every time I go into the garden, she greets me with a quack and waddles after me as I hang out the washing, or do a spot of weeding. When she’s in the mood for a cuddle on my lap, she has a very special whistle and quiet quack – I like to think she loves me too!

Do follow her journey from here and here – although she appears in lots of other posts too!

Is there even more rain on the horizon for the week ahead? Well, let’s just hope it stops by next Sunday and in the meantime, pop over to Wendy’s Handmade Monday to catch up with how everybody else has been spending their time on rainy days.

It’s almost another new month – this year is positively flying by!

Enjoy your week …

    What lovely cheerful cushions, I’m sure they’ll be really popular at the vintage fair. We had an adopted duck once, they have lovely personalities!


  • I love the cushions and the bobbles are a lot of fun. Love the duck too (it’s the weather for ducks) x


  • Helen says:

    Loving the cushions! And your duck is gorgeous!


  • The cushions are lovely.


  • Beautiful cushions a good way to use up remnants. I especially like the patchwork with the bobbles.
    Such a cute little duck. The ones who live over the road to us, always run away when I approach!


  • Carol says:

    Your cushions are lovely. so bright and colourful but your Flora is even more beautiful isnt she. Do you have a pond especially for her I wonder.


  • Anji says:

    I love your vintage cushions. If I get a chance I’ll pop into Winchester at the weekend & say hi as we’re not far from there.

    Oh, I want a duck, but I’m not allowed!
    The nursery panels are gorgeous and look beautiful on the cushions. I love all the different patterns and colours that you have put with them, they work so well together.


  • adaliza says:

    Yes, Flora has 2 garden ponds all to herself! The large one was covered in duck week until she got in there and cleared it up – no wonder she’s a chubby duck!


  • adaliza says:

    Do pop by and say Hello. I’m usually in the High Street somewhere by Boots – just look for lots of cushions!


  • Caroline says:

    Happy cheerful suctions now all we need is weather not suited to ducks


  • Caroline says:

    Should have read cushions, this auto spell check is a nightmare!

  • your cushions are beautiful! those panels are fab and i love the patchwork you’ve matched with them 🙂

    Flora is fabulous! what a lovely an unusual pet! 🙂


  • Susie says:

    Oh, I love the little vintage children artwork. It was such a simple time. I found an old old book that one of my sons got from his school library when they were selling damaged books (years and years ago) and it must have been from the 1950s. It’s pretty torn up but has some awesome drawings of children. I had thought maybe they would be sweet framed in a child’s room. Your pillows remind me of that.
    And Flora, a year old! My time flies. 🙂


  • Awww your duck is adorable! Good luck with the fair!


  • RosMadeMe says:

    Happy Birthday Flora! Love the Dresden plate cushion and the Kate Greenaway panels are just lush…


  • Nicola Ellen says:

    Those panels with the children are beautiful and look brilliant on your cushions 🙂 Happy Birthday to Flora too 🙂 xx
