So, first bargain - the little trunk,(here)which I think will eventually become a pin cushion holder(not sure yet)
As usual I forgot to take photos as I first painted it in a mixture of bronze and pearl white acrylic paint, then stamped it using Caramel (Adirondack Earthtones)with (TH) Attic treasures stamps.
Yesterday there was a slight improvement weatherwise so we went out for lunch and a visit to Leighton Hall(a lovely mansion house not far away), enjoyed a tour around the house, entertained by an expert and amusing guide and then on to the lawn for a flying display of hawks - a lovely afternoon!
When I came back I set to making the corners from a new decorative circle die I have(more of that another time) However, the light beat me and I had to wait until today to take photographs. So what happened? We had a mist all morning and it was quite dark and didn't really brighten up when the mist lifted so I took a leaf out of some other folk I've seen who photograph outdoors - brilliant idea!
So,onto the bench on the decking - behind the two photos above is the Rowan tree that produces orange berries(they never go red and the birds don't seem to like them sadly)
Then round the back of the caravan my favourite spot - the rockery - so here are two more views.
I must say I really did have fun making this and have decided to enter it in
