Ta-Dah Tuesday - school case clean up

I had my gall bladder removed yesterday, I forgot to ask the surgeon for a photo of said gall bladder so that i could have the mother of all posts for Ta-Dah Tuesday. Shame.

I am feeling very tender today but glad to be home after just needing keyhole surgery. 

Looking on bright side of things, the morphine was great, and i am hoping to get back to eating copious amounts of cheese and chocolate cake real soon.

I had already prepared some pics i did a week or so ago, of a vintage school case that needed some lovin.


I chose an old Irish song book that i bought at a car boot sale and have already used for crafting, 




The pages are nicely yellowing


using homemade mod podge



and left to dry on the range.


Ta-dah!!


I only did the lid because it was damaged. Do you think i should do the inside?

  3. Ouch, displaying your gall bladder would have been above and beyond the call of ta-dah Tuesday duty! Hope you're being looked after and are milking the surgery aspect sufficiently.

    I love old sheet music, I reckon doing the rest of it would look great, but not compulsory.

    1. I most certainly am milking it sufficiently, but i'm extremely lucky to have a husband who really steps up to the plate at times like these. Bless him.

  4. Oh dear! I hope you feel better today. Take it easy. Seeing this case just makes me knock myself on the head because this reminds me of the vintage suitcases that I did not buy and it was cheap. I don't know what I was thinking. I really hated myself even up to this day. I guess it wasn't meant to be. I would say that if the inside is not ruined or totally damaged, then I think it is best to leave it at that. :) It looks beautiful already. :) This makes me want to look for some old music book so I can use it for some crafting. :)

    1. I'm sure you'll come across the perfect vintage suitcase soon enough and you'll pounce on it next time.

  6. I've got this in my pinterest board as something I might one day get round to with an old map, but I reckon sheet music would look great too: http://shannoneileenblog.typepad.com/happiness-is/2011/01/vintage-suitcase-storage.html

    I'm in favour of a gall bladder post as an antidote to Molly Makes felt fruit etc. Bring on the gore!

    1. Hi Hannah, lovely link, thanks for that.

      Could only read your Molly makes comment briefly last night as laughing made my stitches hurt. Brilliant.

      Enjoyed it more this morning, briefly wondered if a felt gall bladder would make it onto the cover. Me thinks the drugs haven't fully worn off yet.

      Thanks for commenting
