Wok fountain

I was given another solar fountain so decided to use an old wok to make this fountain..just enjoying the intermittent autumn sun

Yesterday at craft group we altered some tins to make nightlights and a plastic container to make a string holder..love how they turned out and love the company at craft group too.

Happy Tea Tuesday

I am this months host over at Mix it Monthly art challenge so here is my page as I have chosen the colours of autumn and the technique of using items normally used in cardmaking on your page.

its getting quite cold here now so had what was left from last nights mexican bean tortillas for lunch with a cup of tea which I have had for a long time from when I used to dine out with my husband before kids..in a favourite Liverpool mexican restaurant

Happy Tea Tuesday

Peggy doll, metal cards n crochet

At craft group yesterday we were shown how to make these dolls based on the ones from St Lucia..I love her and have called her Peggy.  She sits in front on the new bowl that arrived for my beloved Kenwood Chefette..my mum bought this in the 70s and its still going strong

I always like to buy myself flowers and put them in a vase by the front door.  Here I am  doing a little bit of meditative crochet with my essential oil diffuser waiting for the early morning bus to pick up my son

Fitting in some cards in between doing the laundry and housework for the  paper players and simon says stamp monday challenge

Autumn cards

for these cards I followed the sketch at freshly made sketches so be sure to check out the other fabulous card inspirations

Haven’t made cards for awhile but as I love autumn I though I would make a few..for these owl cards I used some lovely paper from an old making cards magazine..I love owls.

Enjoy your weekend..bye for now

Autumn approaches

Yesterday I made this autumn heart at craft group and today I decided to tackle the garden. I got a lovely surprise when cutting down some branches which were hiding these grapes! I had one and they are delicious. I bought myself some flowers too and like to have them by the front door drinking a cuppa watching out for my sons bus. We have been trying the food delivery service Hello Fresh and we absolutely love the meals and it takes the hassle out of meal planning as we were getting fed up of eating the same meals all the time..even my sons are having a little taste too..click here if you want £25 off a box and I get a little discount too

Happy tea Tuesday and always buy yourself flowers
