Simple Things, Beautiful Charms

I recently got a comment from Cathy Penton, who’s inspiring work room you can see above. You must stop over at her home blog ‘Simple Things, Small Joys’, and have a look. Beauty abounds here.
This is another pic of her beautiful work space…love that cabinet, which actually has a hutch on top, but Cathy took it off ‘for a change’.
These are here hand made soldered charms. Most have a French theme, which I love. I could totally see these little beauties become part of my wrapping ensemble of brown paper, linen twine, flower…and a charm. Ness xx
Don’t forget to have a look at her shoppe

  • Hey Ness,
    I am new to your blog & have to say am so glad I found you. I have just come over from Mels blog about the keep calm posters (I am the Lyn who wrote in my blog about the price of these). I just want to thank you for mentioning the ones on Etsy, I am about to go & have a look at them.
    Hope you have a great day

  • Cathy’s creations are divine and she has such an elegant style. I would love to have her come through my new home with Madam ‘Lily G’ to give me some pointers and between the both of them I would end up with a dream home! A-M xx

  • How lovely – as always, Ness xv.

  • I love her blog – if only i could have the same restraint and keep to the creams/whites – i especially love those charms. Seeing as i am on my all about me week i am off there now to check them out! Mel xxx

  • A-M…I totally agree. I would love miss Lily (Judy) to come through my place with Cathy. It would be something special I am sure….when I win the lotto I will shout us both a home makeover!

    Welcome Lyn. The whole original poster price thing is ridiculous…I am glad to have found the Etsy shop.

    Mel, I have been soooo inspired after looking at Cathys blog. I am thinking the all white makeover will be coming sooner than expected…look out Mic!!

  • Wow, what a gorgeous way to start my Sunday morning. Thank you so very much for doing this gorgeous post for me… I will definitely put a link you your lovely blog…These comments nearly made me cry. Just a quiet country girl doing what she loves. My cottage is so very tiny one day I will have to do a video to show you all because no one believes me (lol)… I have another building that hopefully one day will be my pet project…Anyway off to paint an old wardrobe white and I am thinking about leaving the door the soft blue it is but will have to see….May put some chicken wire as the panels not sure yet… Thank you again…..I have a big smile on my face…Luv Cathy xxxx

  • Cathy,
    You are more than welcome. About your house, I think you will have to do a video or something..not because I don’t believe you, the opposite – I would love to see the rest of your place. You really got me motivated on the Weekend, I got heaps done.
    Ness xx
