A Little Grungy Romance Ironing Board!



Today I feel a bit frazzled around the edges after a chaotic weekend,  so I thought I would make my freebie in keeping with that...grungy, a bit old looking and worn!! It's a frame..perhaps for heritage, or something romantic? I hope you like it.

But first......

This weekend was none stop..what with "hunt the mother" on Saturday and then on Sunday I did a large family lunch, not to forget our little Lilly stayed with me until this afternoon. So not a lot of time to sit or even sleep..last night was so hot and airless that Lilly really had problems staying asleep despite a fan, bless! We are not used to hot in England!!Wet, no.

Last night I was very good and instead of sitting at the computer I decided to get a head start on my ironing. So out came the board and the Easy Iron spray...I love that stuff for the shirts!! It gets them so crisp and smart....really business like, sometimes more than others!!

Three shirts done and I could hear Lilly crying upstairs, so up I ran and after a little soothing she settled. A quick spray of easy iron and....yes, the crying began again. So, of I go back up stairs, she's not a crier normally so I thought she must be really uncomfortable. After a little while she drifted off again.

Back down to the ironing..quick spray and the iron starts to fly. I got really into it and quickly finished the shirt....but, it was not quite right. Not a crease in sight, thought that doesn't surprise me as it was about as stiff as the ironing board!! I

had got distracted by Lilly and each time I started ironing again I had sprayed it liberally with the Easy Iron.

I had to laugh it could have stood up on its own without the coat hanger!! Mind you my son was not to be persuaded that he would look ultra smart at the office in it...he was convinced he would get chapped skin, he thought it would be as comfortable as wearing a suit of Armour, lol!! I did try and tell him he would standout from the crowd.....he said "No chance"!!! So back in the tub it went!!

Now for the sensible stuff.

First Here is the download link if you want the Grungy Romantic Frame.

Dreams, are something we should all have..especially the young and look at this lovely young ladies dreams, a model, an artist, a dancer and a wrestler!! Erica has done a beautiful layout showing Cheyenne's dreams with some gorgeous photos. I think that this is a great page for Cheyenne to see in years to come when I hope she has fulfilled some of her dreams! A special page Erica and thank you so much for sharing it!
