Wonderful stuff - and, wow - your honey looks amazing. We installed bees into a homemade top bar hive (TBH) earlier in the year and I'm in awe of how much honey and comb the bees have produced in such a short period. For anyone looking for a low impact style of beekeeping I'd seriously recommend TBHs. Here's a blog of how our bee installation went to wet your whistle   Smiley . http://growveg.info/viewtopic.php?f=3757&t=15083

The pattern works really well with the dress style. I just love the way the flowers seem to climb up.

I love your uber-long door table - what a brilliant idea!

That's so sweet. The length looks good on you, but I agree it would look even better as a halter.

It really suits you. Great idea, well executed.

I clicked on the thumbnail thinking you'd made a tie-dye T-shirt in a Grateful Dead stylie. I'm very pleasantly surprised to see that you didn't. Absolutely beautiful and not at all hippyish  Grin

What a fabulous idea - and I definitely liked the lived in hat look. Nancy looks so good in it, I'm guessing this is her hat now? How difficult do you think it would be for someone who has never crocheted before to attempt? I'm quite tempted as I've big head and most sun hat's just perch, rather unflattering on top of it.

I think I may have to make something similar - it looks brilliant on you. I really love the bow at the back.

Thanks peeps. The foam was bought from a mattress shop and it's 12 cm and firm. I fall asleep on it most evenings following a glass of vino - thankfully hubby thought to build a wall for me to put my drinks on  Wink .

Where I live people often build stone sofas as part of their outside kitchens, so we just thought we'd bring it inside. He's decided he wants to do a circular one for outside next, so I best get some mosaic practice in for the table.

First I'm not sure if I should be entering this as it's not reconditioned, but built from scratch, but I thought I'd share to maybe provide inspiration. My husband built our sofa/storage unit from old blocks he found lying around, he then rendered them up and painted them. You can see the wood store, currently filled with outside cushions as it's getting hot down here in southern Italy. Under the other seats there are three roomy compartments housing all sorts of things (diving gear, CDs, Christmas decorations etc).

I made the cushions, although hubby's one is covered with a throw so he can siesta wearing his working gear.

Including the foam for the seating cushions, a huge bag of cushion filling (I've got loads left to make outside cushions and gift cushions), the fabric, render and paint it came to less than 300 euros. Not bad for a sofa unit/ lifestyle accessory. Oh and it's fabulously comfortable - we've had five adults fall asleep on it at the same time.

Incidentally, I could have entered the last competition too - I found the chandelier by the bins and gave it some love, spray and new chains and we now have a funky new light fitting. Not to be out-down my husband built the shelves from scratch including the brackets. He's a clever old stick sometimes.
