Default Stash of the day........

.....osbournes and 1 shop........got some tube like beads for mini venetian blinds.....1 .25 per pack or3 for 3.......got some mini sponges on sticks..(ooooh.......sounds very ROMAN -esque to me......)thought it be better than using the paintbrushes for some items..one swoop and its done....wooden leaves that can go on furniture,fireplaces,bedsteads...you can use them as molds with watercolour and acrylic paints....bought some ribbon strips from 1 SHOP..you could make verticals with these...need a few packs to make a whole window,less than 40'' a strip........got them to braid the puppet clothes and bedspreads...or make some mini bags with them...hankercheifs for sheets....metal embellishments...look nice over the door of my jenny wren...suns and wreathes..need to be painted up or left alone to be put on mirror frames ..got the little tubs again 10 in pack for 1..have just stained some balsa wood dark oak ready to make the venetian blinds with the copper coloured tube beads....

Wonderful Sue. I have those little foam brushes for decoupage and they are great for painting too.

I've been to a different 1 shop today and desperately wanted to get something as good as you get Su but I came away with nothing at all. You must have better shops in Birmingham than we have in Leicestershire.
