The wood I took the photos on was from my Dads barn, it is about 3 ins thick it used to be his work surface, when we cleared out Dads barn (over 25yrs ago) I could not leave it behind so home it came some became benches  and a table for the garden, there are two pieces left which Hubs sanded for me and one day when I think of something fitting to do with them I will until then they will just be looked at, stroked and loved and I will remember all the great times I had chopping up wood, making things with my Dad and watching him making things and mending things and resoling shoes and wishing I had keep ALL the contents of that wonderful barn!

Car Boot Finds!

 On one of my rare outings out to our local Sunday car boot sales I found all these flowers in a large cardboard box, I was having a rummage, asked 'how much?' (thinking I might get a few for a quid), the lady said 'You can have the lot for £1' well I nearly fell over! I paid my pound, feeling very chuffed!
Next I found a book (50p) which had great pics of old medicine bottles and packets in, the wooden box 20p, a little later the Cuttlebug folder (small dots) £1 and a bag of glitter glue, liquid pearls and a pot of ice glittery stuff for £2, the peacock feathers were just £1! I was very please with my finds!

I am working on a mini album so some of the flowers will be sprayed to put on that, the feathers I wanted for a project I am working on with G45 The Old Curiosity Shoppe papers and I have something in mind for the wooden box too so lots to do!
When I have completed them I will blog them here!
