House of Cards Challenge Shabby and Vintage.......

Good Afternoon Readers,
Well having a good day so far....... done quite a bit around the house, even took everything of my display cabinet in the hall, it was beginning to resemble a piece of furniture, that would not have looked out of place,in house that had been empty for a while,  I do not like ornaments, of any kind shape or form, they clutter and collect dust, as my cabinet was living proof of, the only ornaments I possess, are a collection of Horses that my friend sherry gave me and 4 very pretty Fairies, anything else that I have had brought for me, has remained in the box, never to see light of day...... the good thing is that my family are aware that I do not like ornaments, so I do not have many full boxes in the attic....... so cabinet is now dust and cobweb free...... at one point this morning I had two hoovers on the go, one upstairs and one down...... dogs refused to come in from the garden, until my hoover frenzy had subsided,  house is now quite and dogs are lying in there bed in my craft room, have also been busy on my computer, designing a few things for a future project, that I am unable to talk about at the mo, all will be revealed in a while...... anyhoo, have been able to join in with the fun over on houseofcardschallenge. and my design is below.....
