DISTRESSING TIMES
Remember this?



Remember how it was too bright and lairy for me?
Remember how I asked for your advice.
Well, I went off and ignored pretty much all of it.
All except that of Lazy Daisy Jones, who told me what I already knew, but somehow couldn't find the information in my brain.
One big pot of grey dye and a happy hour spent with a nutmeg grater later and it is now more or less exactly as I imagined it in the beginning.







Though I may need to do a little more distressing to those still slightly too perky suffolk puffs. It may not be to every one's taste, but I feel much happier now.
Love Nora xxxx

  4. Love it! Mind your fingers on the grater ... we don't want to see blood spatters on your puffs! M x

  5. You've certainly taught those puffs a lesson! Loving the new subdued colours. Wouldn't have thought of a nutmeg grater though, but then having a luthier in this house means a never ending supply of sandpaper available for such jobs.

  6. I prefer the ''after''.....It would seem however that you have a ''thing'' against bright!! Pray tell.....does that mean you don't like my lemon pouch? and please be gentle with me......
