How are you? I hope you, my dear friends are all doing well. Unfortunately, I am a bit under the weather. I guess at this time of year it is inevitable. The youngest got the flu from school and so she decided to share it with the rest of her siblings and parents. So yes I have what we call the flu. All my bones are aching, a splitting headache, sore throat and the most annoying is having a blocked nose and a chesty cough. So practically yes I have it all. It is not easy being sick and looking after kids who are sick. Thank God for hubby even if he is pretty much in the same boat, he has helped me a lot. Hopefully in a few days we will be back to normal. Since then I haven't done much but I have some new pieces for the bedroom which finishes the room.
I also wanted to welcome three new followers to my blog welcome Thomas Flanell, Denise Cole and Florance Castelli. Welcome!
So today I am happy to show you the new pieces of furniture that I got for the bedroom in Kate's Cottage.
|The Bed Room in Kate's Cottage.|
So my new pieces for this room is the lovely table, spinning wheel and mirror.
Ahswood Designs have made these pieces to perfection. I am just impressed with the little table as it actually opens up into a chair.
These where very popular in the era as they save space for small houses.

On top of the table I have added a medieval candle stick, a basket with clothes and a small book.
I also got a small medieval mirror which fitted on the chest of drawers perfectly. I am really pleased that Ashwood has made these in a small version.
And finally I also got a spinning wheel which matches the era. There are so many kinds of spinning wheels but this does fit in the period.

I added some more decoration to it. Ashwood was kind enough to send me some more wool and so I made a small sack with it and added some spanned yarn. I have used toothpicks to make the spindles .

I have added some small pieces to the fire place but I am still not happy with the mantle piece.
So I guess this is all for now. I still need to make curtains and add a few more accessories. And this is how it looks like at the moment.
