Ebay Dream Come True

My love affair with Ebay began about 2 years ago. I've had way more hits than misses. I am convinced there is nothing quite like the thrill of "winning" what you've NEEDED for so long. It awakens in me that competitive spirit that had lain dormant since year 10 maths.

Just look what the Ebay bunny brought me yesterday! An incredible win after a tough battle where I fearlessly thrashed my competitors. I almost wept tears of joy when my trophy was delivered.

A gorgeous Louis IV stlyle sofa upholstered in a deep plum fabric. Not velvet, but it will do nicely for now till I have it reupholstered.

So exhilarated was I that I made a bee line for Spotlight for some fabric in order to craft these pillows.

I have been without my trusty sewing machine for 4 years. The reunion was a happy one. I sat behind my Brother Machine, stitching some yummy vintage style fabrics whilst watching three episodes of Sex and the City- a perfect night in in my book!

I keep visiting my new "win" just to make sure it's not a dream. I'm sitting on it right now. Wearing my nicest dress. Its real! I won!


  1. So beautiful Kel! I really love the pillows too! you are amazing.

  2. Gorgeous plummy number! Love it. I can see it in pink velvet in the future. Can I please book you in for a stitch and bitch session in the near future? I'll bring my own Brother.
