Hi Coops

This is gorgeous .. .. and I love all chippy corners and the treatment you have given them. The pearls add great extra dimension to them.

Such pretty colours and a really delicate finished look.

Love it!

I read your hospital appointment post .. .. sounds like hubby will need to spoil you for AGES afterwards. You might find you won't be able to stand at an ironing board for at least 3 months!! LOL!!!

Love Jules xx
