I have been gluing a lot of things together over the weekend (including, at one point, two of my fingers!). Some things had to be re-glued, as the first glue used wasn't strong enough, but eventually I had produced ........
sea glass boats
beach combing paperweights
a beach combing scene on slate
sea-washed brick paperweights
stone stack paperweights
slate and sea glass hearts
a cute stone dog
another cute stone dog
these have now had hanging loops of ribbon added
after I took this photo of the copper Christmas trees, I thought they looked a bit plain
so I added these little presents (they are actually buttons!)
the studio was somewhat messy by the time I finished!
Malcolm made the driftwood stars, raiding my string and ribbon stashes, and using some of the little boxes - I have been making more of them
when we got up on Saturday, there was a sprinkling of snow
and the bird bath was frozen for the first time this winter
so I was very glad to have my stove to keep me warm ....... I took the photo at the end of the afternoon when it was dark, and turned the light off to highlight the flames
then, when I went out to shut the back storm doors, I saw these sheep on the skyline, with the sunset behind them
yesterday morning we popped out to get the Sunday papers, and to have a cuppa ....... and a wonderful cheese scone!
to finish ...... on Saturday, Malcolm was doing a bit of tidying in the garden, and found these grapes Sadly, still not enough to make wine!
