Painting in the sun

Lots of altering recycling this week. A sushi tray was perfect for displaying inches from a UK stampers swap..made into a box to hold my library books. Altered an old paint box to hold my ginger tea. Today I altered a reed diffuser replacing the artificial fragrance with bergamot and grapeseed oils. Sunshine today so loved painting outside with my son.

Happy Tea Tuesday

  1. Your recycled pieces are beautiful, the box decorated with inchies from your swaps is wonderful – I love it! Painting outside with your son sounds perfect πŸ™‚ . Enjoy the rest of your weekend! J πŸ™‚
    p.s. thanks so much for highlighting Rococo in Liverpool in a previous post, we went there for lunch last Monday and had the most amazing time πŸ™‚ . x

  2. Fantastic pieces, the box with the inchies looks wonderful..
    Painting outside sounds good , but its still quite cold here.
    Happy T Day.

  3. Lots of great projects to see in this post. Painting outside sounds wonderful but we have a strong and cold North Westerly Wind so not a good idea yet for me.

    Happy T Day

    Love Chrissie xx

  4. Looks like everyone is getting on the recycling bandwagon. I love that you are able to find ways to recycle and your pieces are simply incredible. I especially like the reed diffuser. I’ve never had one, but always wondered what you do with them when the scent was gone. You’ve found the perfect use.

    Your tea in the sun looks wonderful, as does your painting. I seem to have missed so much of your art, and I really love how you draw. Perhaps you will allow me to add your blog to my left sidebar so I can keep up with you. Just let me know if so.

    Thanks so much for joining us with your incredible recycling ideas and your tea for T this Tuesday.

  5. Some great repurposing projects and I love your watercolor work – both the face and the lovely flowers. You’ve certainly been inspired lately, Lorraine.

    Happy T-day! Hugs, Eileen

  6. I love your recycled pieces. I’m sure they are even more beautiful than the original. I love the box with the inchies. Beautiful!
    Belated happy T-Day,

  7. I love your recycled pieces too! Somehow it’s such a satisfying job to alter things. There must be a certain magic as I still have some altered boxes I created more than 20 years ago and I still love them.
